Bali Vacations—29 Must-Know Tips Before You Go

Have Clothes, Will Travel

Welcome to Bali, Indonesia’s most famous island. Known for its volcanic scenery, rice terraces, vibrant arts scene, and numerous temples, it’s a place where traditional and modern life coexist.

If you’re a family, going on your honeymoon, or just want to unwind with daily massages and great food, these are 29 must-know Bali travel tips before you go.

Understand Balinese Culture

Balinese culture is deeply influenced by Hinduism. When visiting temples, wear a sarong and sash, which are often provided. Respect religious ceremonies and processions and avoid walking in front of people praying.

Get Comfortable Bartering

Start at about half the asking price and negotiate with a smile—keep it light and fun. Remember that sometimes, what sounds like a big difference in the local currency can be very little in your home currency.

Ride Scooters at Your Own Risk

Yes, they are widely used. And yes, there are a lot of accidents. If you plan to use a scooter, get an international driving permit, always wear a helmet, and ensure your travel insurance covers scooter accidents.

Find Your Dharma

Head inland to the idyllic greenery of Ubud. The lush inland town is a wellness hub, offering numerous yoga studios and retreats. Immerse yourself in the world of personal growth with daily affirmations, healthy food, and participating in yoga or meditation.

Stay Hydrated and Sun-Safe

Avoid sunstroke and dehydration by staying hydrated, in the shade as much as possible, and slap on 50+ SPF sunscreen multiple times throughout the day.
