ADDITIONAL TRIP INFORMATION


CURRENCY US$1 = Rp 14,000++ (rates may vary) ATMs dispense Rp 50,000 or Rp 100,000 bills. If you’re using foreign bank cards, Visa or Mastercard, withdrawal fees can be quite high. Beware of skimmers and rigged units. Remember to take your money and ATM card after each transaction. It’s best to change your money at a bank before you depart the United States. If you have to use a standalone currency exchange booth, always check your notes before leaving. Even if the signage says ‘Authorized’, scams are quite frequent. You can bargain at most stalls and art markets in Bali. Items sold at shopping malls and brand outlets usually have fixed prices, except during promotional sales. Tipping isn't mandatory since prices are subject to 10% government tax and up to 11% service charge. You can choose to tip 5 – 10% of the bill as a token of appreciation. CUSTOMS & ETIQUETTE Must-wear on temple visits: a sarong (usually with a sash around your waist), which you can rent for about Rp 10,000. Always use your right hand for gesturing. Using your left hand or feet is considered rude. STAYING SAFE DURING YOUR TRIP Tap water is not drinkable in Bali. Ice served in drinks at established bars, hotels and restaurants are usually safe. If you plan on attending any animal sanctuaries, wear minimum accessories, especially when visiting Bali’s monkey forests. Melanin Globe does not provide contact information or sites about animal visits. You will be responsible for obtaining information for animal sanctuaries that you have an interest in visiting during your stay.
