Feeling hot, hot, hot
Bali is naturally hot, with a daily average temperature of 32 degrees, so pack for summer. And if you can, pack light.
Do I need a visa for Bali?
As an Australian tourist, you will get a visa waiver for up to 30 days when you land in Bali. But do make sure you have at least six months validity left on your passport from the date you intend to return to Australia.
If you drive on the road in Bali, you may feel as if you’re taking your life into your own hands. If you do want to give it a try, our policies have optional cover for motorcycle or moped riders.⁵
The water in Bali is extremely dirty and not fit for human consumption. So to avoid diarrhea only drink and brush your teeth using bottled water and avoid ice cubes and uncooked food.
Unfortunately, wild and stray animals with diseases like rabies are plentiful in paradise. So while you may want to cuddle that scrawny mutt on the sidewalk, our advice is don’t!
Some language to try
Nothing will make a Balinese person smile more than trying out their language. For some Indonesian local lingo try Selamat Pagi (Good Morning), Tolong (Please) and Terima Kasih (Thank you).
