  • WELCOME TO BALI

    Bali is so picturesque that you could be fooled into thinking it was an artistic masterpiece: rice paddies roll down hillsides, volcanoes soar through the clouds, the forests are lush and tropical, the beaches are lapped by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean and in the villages you’ll notice the quietness and wisdom in old people’s faces. Over 20,000 temples and palaces, coupled together with colourful festivals, music and dance is testimony to the island’s rich heritage.

    Kuta Beach – first discovered in the 60’s, and once a sleepy fishing village - has now transformed into the centre of Bali’s nightlife and action. Legian is where the locals, tourists and expats all mingle. Bargaining, beach activities, indulging in massages, meditating or simply reading - you name it, it’s available! For a holiday where the emphasis is on relaxation, visit Jimbaran or Sanur Beaches; whilst Nusa Dua caters for the more upmarket taste and is ideal for families and water sport enthusiasts. If beaches aren’t your ideal, then visit Ubud, where the culture and lifestyle of the Balinese wait to be discovered.

    GETTING AROUND

    You will find a range of chauffeur driven limousines, self-drive cars, taxis and hotel shuttles. Many taxis are not metered so it’s wise to negotiate the fare beforehand. Bemos, or communal buses, are available in smaller villages - simply hail the driver and negotiate the fare that suits you both. Motorcycles can also be hired but road and traffic conditions can be busy and somewhat hazardous in certain locations.

    CLIMATE

    Bali has a tropical climate with temperatures averaging 30°C year round. October to April can bring heavy showers and high humidity, but usually the days are sunny. From May to September the humidity is low, and it can be quite cool in the evenings.

    LANGUAGE

    Indonesian is the official language known as Bahasa Indonesian but all the Balinese people also speak Bahasa Bali (Balinese). English is spoken in tourist areas and is the common "third” language of Bali.

    WHAT TO WEAR

    Light, airy, casual clothes are the most practical and you’ll find cottons or linens are the most comfortable in Bali’s often humid conditions. Pashminas or shawls and waist sashes should be worn when visiting temples. A warm sweater or light jacket can be a good idea in the mountain interiors.

    ELECTRICITY

    Most hotels use 220 volts, 50 cycles and a round, two-pronged slim plug.

    COMMON COURTESIES

    Shorts or revealing clothing are not allowed in religious places. The head is considered sacred and should never be touched. Hand shaking is common practice but avoid using your left hand for handshakes or giving / receiving anything. Public displays of affections between men and women are deemed inappropriate. Like anywhere in South East Asia, calmness is admired so ‘keep your cool’ when bargaining or if things are not running according to plan.

    HEALTH

    Visitors do not require vaccinations unless coming from or passing through a designated contaminated area. Drink only bottled water and avoid ice unless you know it is made from bottled or boiled water. Be cautious when eating from the food vendors on the street and proper care must be taken against sunburn.

    CURRENCY

    The currency is the Rupiah which is better for bargaining and shopping in markets but US Dollars, Pounds and Euros are accepted at hotels.

    TIPPING

    A service charge is already included in all prices. Tips, in general, are not mandatory, and you should only give them if you are really content with the service offered.

    TIME DIFFERENCE

    Bali is 6 hours ahead of South Africa.

    WHAT TO DO IN BALI

    Climbing a volcano, canyoning, downhill cycling, or a hike through traditional villages will you get you closer to nature and Balinese Culture. Ubud should be on your itinerary – it is indeed special. Bali is a shopping paradise; art work, handicrafts, oils and essence, clothes, shoes, furniture, accessories – you name it. There is surfing for beginners at Kuta, Legian and Seminyak Beaches. Water sport activities can be found at Benoa (jet skiing, paragliding and water skiing). Whatever your age or interest, you will be sure to find plenty to keep you busy.

    WHAT TO PACK

    • As a guide, the maximum weight for checked luggage is 20kg in economy class.
    • Your hand-luggage should not weigh more than 6kg and needs to be small and compact
    • Take along your best beach and casual wear, perfect for the day
    • The dress-code for dinner is usually smart casual and gents may be required to wear long trousers
    • Take an umbrella or rain poncho if travelling from October to January to March to June
    • When in town, men & women should have their shoulders and knees covered. Bermuda shorts and a polo shirt are perfectly fine but halter-tops and miniskirts are insulting to locals
    • Sunglasses and suntan lotion are a must
    • Don’t forget any medication that you might need, and be sure to pack it in your hand luggage
    • Chargers for all your devices (it’s a good idea to take along a few movies on a tablet or something similar as the English TV channels in your hotel may be limited)
    • Swimming shoes and goggles
    • Mosquito repellent
    • A sun hat or cap

    TRAVEL TIPS

    • Pack a change of clothing in your hand luggage in case of baggage delays (and a spare cozzie so at least you can have a swim when you get to your resort)
    • Clothing creases less if rolled in a sausage shape when packed – so roll, don’t fold
    • No sharp objects are permitted in your hand luggage (yes, tweezers are sharp!)
    • Travel insurance is a must. If you can’t afford it, you can’t afford to travel!
    • Travelling with kids – please check that you have all the relevant documents including unabridged Birth Certificates.
    • Put electronics, medication, toothbrushes and jewellery in your carry-on bag
    • It’s often a good idea to let your bank or credit card company know that you’re going overseas
    • Be patient, be flexible, be spontaneous and have the best time ever!
