Bali is no longer an untouched paradise. Because of the throng of tourists visiting Bali every year, you should expect crowds and traffic. To better deal with the transport and traffic, consider renting a scooter to visit nearby places. It is an efficient and time-saving commute option!
When packing for Bali, don’t carry only beachwear. It doesn’t always cut. Many high-end bars, restaurants, and clubs enforce dress codes. Also, when visiting temples, you need to make sure to dress appropriately. Wearing something that covers your shoulders and knees is advised.
When visiting Bali, brush up your language skills. While you can manage your stay in Bali if you know English, learning a few words of Bahasa Indonesia is also encouraged. Try simple words like selamat pagi (good morning), terima kasih (thank you), and tolong (please) for starters.
When shopping in Bali, test your bargaining skills. But, be respectful when negotiating prices. You would know when the sellers have reached their limit. At that point, do not push further. If you do not wish to pay the asked price for the item, walk away.
Bali is not just about the sea and beaches. While they are the main tourist attraction, Bali has much more to offer. Try venturing out into the lush green rice terraces, explore several Hindu temples, and check out the cultural heart of Ubud for a wholesome experience.
Bali is often referred to as the Land of Gods and for the right reasons. With its pristine oceans, lush green beauty, and intriguing culture, it is one of the best tourist destinations in the world. So, don’t wait any longer. Book your direct flight tickets to Bali from Delhi Airport and ensure a convenient and hassle-free journey to your dream destination.
