First Time In Bali, Indonesia – Best travel tips

Hello Friends,


A friend of mine asked me some advice and tips for traveling to Bali,  so I decided to write a post in English in my blog, for all people who is going for Bali, Indonesia, for the first time. Maybe you want some advices too.


Best time of year to take a vacation in Bali is between April and September. My Australian friends say that the month of March is very hot and in October you can have a few days of rain, but nothing that can stop  your tour, according to the report of my friends.

The official currency in Bali is called Rupias. If you are Australian they have Commonwealth bank there.


Bali is an island (province) of the Republic of Indonesia and has a governor elected by the people and a legislative assembly. The capital is called Bali Denpasar. Bali is divided into 8 regions (regencies), which are Jembrana, Buleleng, Bangli, Tabanan, Badung, Gianyar, Klungkung and Karangasem.


This island has approximately 3.5 million inhabitants. The area urbanized is close to Denpasar, and in the other regions is dominated by agriculture, which is evident in the thousands rice paddy fields in Bali.


Despite the predominant religion in Indonesia is Muslim, in Bali over 80% of the population is Hindu. Religion and culture are literally one and so the festivals, events and ceremonies have religious influence. As I said the Balinese society is based on its religious precepts so tourists should always show respect, patience and tolerance.


Now let’s do what interests us most, practical tips for u spend the best vacation of your life!
