Have you ever thought about a destination and said, “Oh, what a destination; this is heaven on earth”? If you don’t know or have yet to hear about a place like this. Undoubtedly, this article is for you. Before I tell you about the place, you should know that spending your holiday on this island will be a unique experience.
No more dreaming. Here is the ultimate paradise on Earth-Bali.
Bali is one of those bucket-list destinations every one of us has to visit at least once in our lifetime. This alluring exotic island is also called the “Island of Gods.” This island is a massive collection of various unique combinations of various things.
It’s half a honeymoon destination, part spiritual retreat, a surfing mecca, and part shopping heaven. It has something for everyone, including adventurous adventurers, beachgoers, nightlife seekers, and yoga enthusiasts.
In addition, Bali boasts the friendliest people you’ll ever meet and a lively culture still alive today. This island has some of the most spectacular vistas in the world and is worth a visit.
The best part here is that this island is small and compact, so island hopping in Bali and exploring its unique sites are a must, although you may have read about the top attractions in every article. Yet you should be aware of what to avoid doing while visiting this stunning land.
Do not wear shoes to the Temples
You’ll spend your holiday in Bali, an Indonesian state where most of the population is Hindu. Visitors are expected to leave their shoes outside temples; if you do so, you risk upsetting the locals, and they may ask you to leave or come back after you take off your shoes. Also, if you have an open wound, avoid entering the temples.
Avoid wearing a cross-body bag
Bali is an exotic paradise, but unfortunately, it has many burglars. The worst are individuals who ride motorcycles and steal travellers’ bags. Wearing the bag with a single cross strap is like waving a red flag to bulls, as criminals regard this as an easy snatch. In the worst-case scenario, you will be hurt and lose your bag.
If you need to carry a bag, use a backpack, or wear a bag with both straps, and stay away from the pavement’s edge. Don’t be afraid to visit Bali because this is not unique to the island. Before travelling, take extreme caution.
Do not drink tap water
If you get thirsty, get mineral water, or bring a water bottle. The restaurant also provides tap water; do not drink it; get a prepared mineral water bottle. Because Indonesia lacks the best filtration systems, the water pouring from taps may not be rec
Wearing revealing clothing at temples is not permitted
Both men and women should wear a dress appropriate for entering a sacred place of worship, such as a temple or a mosque. Wear a sarong, a type of long attire that covers your complete body, including your feet. It is recommended that women cover their heads when visiting a mosque.
Not visiting the southern part of Bali
As we all know, Bali is well known for its beaches, and travellers who travel exclusively in the south miss out on some of the island’s most spectacular sights. The heart of Bali is home to breathtaking waterfalls, rice terraces, volcanoes, and a taste of rustic happiness. You’ll experience authentic Balinese culture and the natural splendour of the island’s hinterland. If you want to experience the most unexplored section of Bali, head to Sidemen and East Bali.
Relying on weather apps
Bali’s weather is unpredictable, and forecasting is meaningless. Even though you are travelling in the middle of the dry season, the app has continuously predicted two weeks of thunderstorms.
Do Not Make Fun of Religious Processions
When religious processions are held on the streets, it is best to preserve decorum, especially if it is a funeral procession. In Bali, a Hindu funeral procession is known as Ngaben, Pelebon, or Pitra Yadnya. If you happen to come across a Ngaben, it is advised to be silent and not make any noise until it or you pass, or you will be confronted for your behaviour.
Bali is one of my favourite destinations and is breathtakingly gorgeous. It will be a pain if you do not enjoy your Bali holiday because you are unaware of what to do. Keep these things in mind to ensure a pleasurable journey.
