Make sure you cover your shoulders and legs with a sarong and a sash around the waist when entering temples. Ladies cannot enter when menstruating. Unless it is an organized tour or you have been invited, please do not walk into people’s homes and temples to photograph. The beautiful offerings on the ground are to ward off evil spirits. Please be aware at certain times of the year when major ceremonies take place things in Bali may run more slowly than normal. If you are lucky enough to be invited to a local wedding it is correct etiquette to give the wedding party money in an envelope.



Light casual clothing and beachwear is recommended all year round. Some restrictions apply when visiting temples. Shorts, short skirts and exposed arms are not allowed in and around temples. It is also custom to take off your shoes in temples and in private houses. A pair of sandals, thongs and a comfortable pair of joggers or walking shoes will be sufficient for footwear. Please note some venues do not allow branded singlets and thongs for men.

Do not under any circumstances drink the water. Do not brush your teeth in it, do not open your mouth in the shower. Bottled water is very cheap from the supermarket if you are out and about and is supplied in most accommodation free of charge. Ice is fine as it is regulated and made with bottled water.
