There’s no denying to the fact that Bali, Indonesia is one of the top most holiday and summer destinations in the world. If you come across amazing picturesque views on social media, sandy beaches, amazing sunsets and numerous surf spots, exquisite cafes, luxurious accommodations, and street food everyone should get a taste in their life… that is Bali.
While it is no wonder that it does conquer the most visit places in the world, there are some precautionary things you needed to observe while you are in the place.
First, Bali embraces westernized and modern, religious devotion and traditions, and most of the people there are Muslim— which is why you needed to, not entirely adopt, but to pay respect on their practices.
Do’s: When in Bali
When in Bali, you don’t want to ruin your great visit by going a little overboard with their rules and laws. Government and religious practices in Bali are more likely being followed by their people— which means you, as a foreigner, have to abide.
Let’s start with the Dos…
- DO dress conservatively outside the main tourist resorts, especially when visiting temples and mosques.
- DO obey the rules when entering a temple or any religious sites. For instance, you must wear a sarong and a sash, and leave your footwear at the entrance when entering a Hindu temple.
- DO use the local social titles when talking or referring to someone older than you: use “Pak” for men and “Ibu” for women. As much as possible.
- DO talk with someone at eye level. If the person is seated, you should either sit down or bend down so that you are at the same height.
Don’ts: When in Bali
When there are DO’s of course, there are also things you needed to avoid doing in Bali. these are…
- DO NOT touch the head of a Balinese local. Even patting a cute child’s head is forbidden. For them, the head is the most sacred and purest part of the body.
- DO NOT point with one finger, and do not touch or point at someone with your feet. These acts are extremely offensive.
- DO NOT walk in front of someone who is praying or take pictures of them with the camera flash on. If there is a religious ceremony going on, you’re free to stay and watch but do not interrupt.
