IMMIGRATION - To enter Bali, or Indonesia for that matter you need a passport that has a validity period of at least six more months, and some cases a visa as well. Citizens from Asean (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) do not require a visa, only a valid travel document. Travellers from some thirty countries are also provided with a 60-day tourist visa issued directly upon arrival.

LANGUAGE - The national language is Bahasa Indonesia. English is spoken by most of the younger people.

CURRENCY - The local currency is the Rupiah (Rp) which can be found in the following denominations: the notes come in 100, 500, 1.000, 5.000, 10.000, 20.000, 50.000, 100.000; while the coin are in 25, 50, 100, 500, 1.000 rupiah denominations. We recommended to carry US$ cash or travellers cheques.
Credit card and change cards are also accepted in most retail establishments, at hotels and on airlines. In some cases, a service fee is included when charging a purchase to your card. However, when travelling to the village, take Rupiah with you. Keep small change handy when riding in bemo (public minibus) or buying a drink at warung.

CUSTOMS & TRADITIONS - Shorts and mini-skirts are not allowed in and around temples. It is a custom to take off the shoes in temples, on festivals grounds and in private houses. We strongly recommended these customs to show your respect for the religious traditions.
Embracings and intimate touchings are not well seen in public. Nude or topless bathing is forbidden.

CLOTHING - Going to Bali, dress casually. Take light clothes, as the weather is warm-to-hot throughout the year. There are really only two seasons in Bali - the wet or rainy season the rest of the year. But the rains usually fall in short spells.
