3 Things To Remember When
Bartering In Bali
Start by offering one third of the price offered to you and don’t go over more than half the original offer.
If you have had enough, walk away, the price will be given to you straight away… If not then you really know it was too cheap.
If you got a black bag it means you are a hard bargainer. If you got the stripe bag then you are dubbed easy to swindle.
2 Things To Remember At Bali Airport
Visa is US$35 per person, on arrival for Aussies. This gives you 30 days

1 Thing Not To Do In Bali
Bring, distribute, take, or leave with… any type of illegal substance (drugs)! Us Australians know a thing or two about that one. Love this sign in Ubud's
