Since Bali becomes the main tourist destination in Indonesia, many people come to Bali for various purposes such as for working as well as traveling.

For that reason, these are some activities that we should and should not do during our vacation in the Island of God.

  1. Use reputable travel agent or tour operator for your own comfort and satisfaction;
  2. If you happen to rent a car or taxi, use the trustable driver or at least bring local people for your guide;
  3. Bring enough cash, especially when visiting villages and leave the rest in your hotel safe box;
  4. Bali is relatively hot, bring as much water as you need as water in any hotel is mostly not ready to directly drink;
