Visa: De­pends on your pass­port, but for the ma­jor­ity of coun­tries (UK, Euro­pean coun­ties, Aus­tralia in­cluded) no visa is re­quired for stays of up to 30 days. For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion head to­done­sia-en­tryre­quire­ments-bali.html.

Weather: Wet sea­son is Oc­to­ber to April and dry sea­son is May to Septem­ber. Pass­port: Your pass­port must be valid for at least six months from the date of en­try. Cur­rency: Ru­piah. £10 = around 16,000 IDR, so ex­pect to carry around a fat wad of notes.

Trans­port: Blue Bird Taxi’s are the most re­li­able and hon­est taxi com­pany – there is a me­ter you can trust. Watch out for Blue Bird looka­likes. Hir­ing a scooter is the quick­est and cheap­est way to get around but the roads are crazy so wear a hel­met and make sure your driv­ing li­cense and travel in­surance cov­ers scooter hire abroad.

Ba­li­nese peo­ple: Ba­li­nese are su­per friendly and amaz­ing hosts. They are re­spect­ful and have a peace­ful na­ture, so al­ways treat them in the same man­ner.

Hag­gling: At the mar­ket stalls you are ex­pected to hag­gle for a bar­gain so don’t be afraid to go in with some hard (but friendly) ne­go­ti­a­tions.
