Choosing Bali as a holiday destination is the great choice! Let’s check some travel tips to Bali!
1. Money Changers
The official currency of Indonesia is the Rupiah (Rp). If you use money changers on the streets, ask them if they charge a commission. Whilst their rates may look good, you could lose out on the commission. We recommend you use only official Money Changers in the island.
2. Street vendors
The reason these guys are walking up and down the streets and pestering people is because tourists buy fake watches, hats, etc from them. You can choose not to buy from them. But if you decide to buy, just remember “Buyer Beware”!
Bali is a shopper’s dreamland. The main tourist roads are lined with stores, shops and stalls selling Indonesian crafts, batik materials and local specialties. In Bali, the first price is not the last price. Learn the art of bargaining, keep a sense of humor, first ask the price that the vendor expects and then counter offer. You usually pay more than the locals, but that’s the way it is. If You don’t intend to buy don’t ask for a price.
Bali is a tropical island. The average temperature hovers around 30 degrees Celsius year-round. There are dry and wet seasons – dry from April to September and wet from October to March – but it can rain at any time of year and even during the wet season rain is likely to pass quickly. In general May to August are the best months in Bali. At that time of year the climate is likely to be cooler and the rains lightest.
