Visitors to Bali can derive a unique cultural experience from personal interaction with the Balinese people, who are renowned for their bright and friendly smiles. However, a few key tips will make the experience even more enjoyable. As the climate is tropical, wear loose-fitting clothing, sun-glasses and hats, and plenty of sun block. Remember to drink enough water to keep hydrated. If visiting temples, make sure to wear a sarong with a sash, and these are available for hire in many shops in the temple’s perimeter. Outside of the beach, observe a more modest dress-code, especially in rural areas. Take care that your gestures are not aggressive; for instance, do not gesture with one finger or talk with your hands on your hips. Always offer a tip, gift, business card or other object with the right hand, as the Balinese consider the left hand to be impure. They also consider the head to be the space of the soul, so refrain from patting kids on the head. In addition to the international “hi” and “hello”, a great way to greet the Balinese is to put your palms together on your chest, which reflects a greeting from the heart. A wonderful rule of thumb is to engage the Balinese with openness, which will be reflected back to you tenfold!
