Last year, thousands of Australians traveled To Indonesia, most of the holidaymakers headed to Bali. It seems that Australians are the main source of visitors in Bali, making it their second home. Why does everyone love this place so much? Besides the fact it’s relatively close, you can meet heartwarming people, Bali has a rich collection of beaches and you can discover the Balinese’s beautiful traditions and culture. If you’re going to Indonesia any time soon, there are certain things you need to be aware of, so we’ve gathered the best travel tips and tourist secrets Asia guide.

1.    Don’t go without travel insurance

You shouldn’t jump on a plane and visit the island without travel insurance valid for Bali. Be smart and purchase a comprehensive plan. If your smartphone gets stolen or if an unexpected natural disaster occurs, you’ll be protected. Insurance protects you against unexpected risks encountered while traveling abroad, which is why it matters. Over the years, insurance companies have had to deal with a great many emergencies and evacuations such as the unpredictable volcanic ash clouds that affected thousands of tourists. You don’t have any kind of guarantee that your trip will be a seamless one. So, take out travel insurance and get much-needed peace of mind.

2.    Don’t visit during the rainy season

In Bali, the rainy season begins in October and ends in April. It’s typically referred to as the monsoon season. Needless to say, the rainy season brings lots and lots of rain, which can ruin your vacation. If you plan on being on the beach or lying by the pool all day and don’t want to be a prisoner in your hotel room, you should avoid this time of the year. The best time to come to the island is between June and July for the best weather, you also get to escape the Australian winter for a few weeks. If you don’t mind the traffic or crowded beaches, plan your trip accordingly. You can take part in all kinds of extra activities such as trekking or motorbiking which are available on the island.

3.    Don’t eat Western food

Restaurants in Bali offer some of the best dishes. It would be a shame to eat only Western food. If you want to enjoy the best culinary experience of your life, try local foods, which are rich with spices and flavors. You can try a cooking class or go to the warungs. A warung is like a restaurant, the only difference being that it’s family-run and it offers better value. The foods that you must eat are Babi Guling, barbecue pork ribs, and Bebek Betutu. Bali cuisine is unique, featuring an interesting blend of fresh vegetables, meat, and fish. What’s there not to like?

4.    Don’t expose much of your upper body

It’s not a good idea to expose your body while visiting Bali. Keep your shoulders covered at all times. Covering up your body is important here and respectful, the last thing you want to do is draw unwanted attention. Even if you don’t agree with the local dress code, you must respect it. Why? Simply because you’re a guest in Bali and you should show respect for others. The perfect outfit to wear while you’re in Indonesia is a t-shirt, shirts, and sneakers. You can buy or event rent a sarong and sash if you like.
