Dos & Don’ts in Bali General information, quick tips and helpful advice from locals and expats in Bali: 1. Entering a temple – DO wear a sarong & clothes with sleeves when entering a temple – The Balinese are very serious about their spirituality, so please be respectful. – DON’T enter a temple while menstruating. 2. Shopping – DO haggle in the markets and street shops - Humor and a smile can get you a long way in bargaining with locals. But… – DON'T haggle too hard - Remember 5000 rupiah is likely a lot more to them than it is to you. 3. Mind the head – DON'T touch persons’ heads – That goes for kids too, even if they are really cute. The head is considered the most sacred part of the human body.

34

4. Drinking water – DO drink lots of bottled water - Bali is hot all year round and you don’t want to get dehydrated.

ok_vylety_A5_final_tlac 22/10/16 16:17 Page 35

– DON'T drink tap water - It does not taste good and will almost certainly give you stomach problems. 5. When giving and receiving – DO use both hands when giving or receiving - It is a compliment to use both hands when you give or receive things like money or a business card. – DON'T hand anything over with your left hand only – It is considered impolite. 6. Getting attention – DON'T point with your index finger or feet - Using your index finger is considered offensive, use the entire hand if you want to point out something. Pointing with your feet is considered very offensive! 7. Take off your shoes when entering a Balinese house. - Please take off your shoes when entering a Balinese’s house. Balinese often sit on the floor and it is not polite to walk around with your shoes on. When they invite you to come inside their home make sure you leave your shoes at the door.
