Bali, as with most of Indonesia, is positioned directly on top of the Pacific Ring of Fire, an area in which a large amount of seismic activity, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions can occur. As a result, from time to time this activity can interrupt even the most perfectly planned travel experiences.   Throughout the later part of 2017, Mt Agung, in East Bali, has shown increasing signs of volcanic activity and in late November 2017, Mt Agung began a small scale eruption that has made been prominently featured in the news media.   These kinds of situations can change quickly so it is always a good idea to stay up to date if you are planning on travelling to Bali soon. With  a lot of commentary surrounding the seismic events, so we wanted to share a couple of reliable sources that we rely on for up to date information and travel warnings.   If you're planning on visiting soon, or just want to keep up to date with how Mt Agung is behaving itself, check out the following sources.

If you can dream it, you can make it happen. This is something the team at The Bali Bible really believes and we work to prove it everyday.   Last November, following the minor eruption of Mt Agung, tourism numbers sharply declined, leaving many on the island struggling. As a team with have a deep and strong connection to Bali, so we got together and starting coming up with crazy ideas around how we might help.   Since the 1970’s the Balinese economy has been driven by tourism and many in Bali rely on the regular tourism traffic to educate and provide for their families.   With many friends and partners on the island, we wanted to do something to encourage everyone back and show them that Bali was once again business as usual.   So we decided to create the most incredible competition we could imagine.   You can check it our right here   Surely, we thought, if we could give away some of the biggest prize trips we’ve ever seen, it might get a bit of attention. We hoped it might show everyone that 2018 was the year to be planning their next Bali escape.   From here the idea escalated quickly. We contacted some of our partners on the island, from the most luxurious villas and resorts, to the best restaurants and bars and some of the most exciting experiences.   Unexpectedly, everyone we spoke to about our crazy idea was keen to get involved! Even the Balinese government have supported the idea and joined in the activity.   With so much energy from everyone we talked too the plan came together quickly. With the help of many others we’ve been able to create not just one but three incredible Bali Escapes to give away.   While the winners of each prize will experience some of the best that Bali has to offer, the competition is about much more than that.   At The Bali Bible we love Bali and have deep and personal connections to the island. Our crazy-idea-turned-campaign is as much about rewarding the winners as it is about bringing attention back to this beautiful destination. We want to showcase its culture and its people and tell everyone that it is safe to travel there.   If you want to get behind the campaign we’d love the support. We'd love you to share this article, our social posts around the competiion or even enter yourself at the link below.   www.thebalibible.com/escape   We’re so excited to be able to pull such a massive feat like this off and we could not have done it without every single partner that has contributed to the campaign; The Edge Villa The Ungasan Clifftop Resort Villa Latitude W Hotel Retreat Trans Resort The Layar Designer Villas & Spa The Viceroy Komaneka at Tanggayuda Air Bali Helicopter Oneeighty Single Fin Settimo Cielo Restaurant Merah Putih Restaurant Mejekawi Restaurant Ku De Ta The Lawn Canggu Sundays Beach Club Mozaic Restaurant Spice Ubud by Chris Salans CasCades Restaurant Four Elements Adventure Bali Body Skincare GoPro   Enter The Ultimate Escape Competition Here

BALI FAQ Lucky you! Looks like you’re on your way to our all-time favourite destination…! Here at The Bali Bible we are the experts on creating memorable trips and we are going to share with you our tips to make your trip as enjoyable, easy and safe as possible.   TRANSPORT How much should I pay from the airport? The easiest way is to get your hotel to arrange pick-up and drop off. It can be cheaper to organise your own transport at the airport, if you don’t get ripped off. Haggling is rife at the airport. fares from the airport start from; ·    Canggu: 200,000IDR ·    Kuta: 100,000IDR ·    Seminyak: 150,000IDR ·    Ubud: 300,000IDR ·    Uluwatu: 250,000IDR   How much is it for a personal driver? You can get a personal driver for a day trip for around 600,000 Indonesian Rupiah ($60) a day. Your hotel should be able to arrange one for you. The Bali Bible has a network of reliable drivers- drivers@thebalibible.com   What is the best taxi service to use? Blue Bird taxi is the most reputable taxi service throughout Indonesia. The cars are light blue with a Blue Bird logo. Although, you need to be quite vigilant because a lot of other taxis are also blue. Blue Bird taxis will always offer a metered fare, unlike other companies that negotiate the fare through their drivers. You can download the Blue Bird app or get your hotel to call one for you.   When are the traffic peak times? Gridlock traffic is common and can’t be attributed to any particular time of day, but for tourist areas such as Seminyak, Kuta, Canggu, it’s usually the heaviest during lunchtime (12 - 2 pm) and also afternoon to dinner time (5 to 7 pm). During the whole week, Saturdays are usually the heaviest.   Why is there so much honking? The people of Bali are not chronic road ragers! Honking is a polite gesture to let someone know that you are nearby or overtaking. They also disregard lanes and speed limits, which can be confusing as a visitor.   Things to keep in mind if you rent a scooter- ·    You are by law expected to wear a helmet. You will find that bike accidents are common. Travel insurance often doesn’t cover moped accidents, especially if you don’t have a license. ·    It’s normal to pay around 70,000 Indonesian Rupiah  ($7) a day to rent a scooter short term ·    Green means go… Orange means go faster… And red means don’t stop immediately or someone will run up your ass. Maintain situational awareness and make sure the traffic behind you is slowing down with you.   ·    Scooters can be a great way to explore Bali but did we mention, you should wear a helmet? Wear proper shoes, long pants etc if possible. ·    If you are stopped by a policeman for any reason, 50,000IDR ($5) is the standard fine.     MONEY & CURRENCY   What is the best way to get local currency? Occasionally money changers have been known to short change people. Although tempting, it’s best to avoid the changers offering the best rates. The more official money changers such as Central Kuta Money Exchange and BMC are amongst the more entrusted. Withdrawing cash through ATM’s is also possible and the best way to avoid skimming is to use ATM’s located in bank branches or guarded my security guards. Exchanging cash at home is also a great option.   How much money should I bring? Bintangs are from 25,000IDR ($2.50) to 50,000IDR ($5). You can pay as little as 20,000IDR ($2) for a Nasi Goreng to 150,000IDR ($15) for a salad and a smoothie. Dinner for two at swanky restaurants can cost 1,000,000IDR+ ($100+). Bali can be done on all budgets!   Is tipping customary? It is not a requirement but a small tip can go a long way for a lot of Balinese, especially for cleaners, drivers, helpers etc.     FOOD & DRINKS Can I drink tap water in Bali? Definitely not, the tap water in Bali hasn’t been processed for drinking.   Is it safe to have drinks with ice? Long has it been preached to be weary of ice in Bali. In the last decade or more however, standards have improved. Most places have drinking ice delivered. So YES, it is safe to have a drink with ice.   How can I prevent Bali belly? Bali Belly is very common. Be cautious and use hand sanitiser frequently, never use tap water to brush your teeth and be careful not to get water in your mouth when showering, swimming etc. Street food in Bali often doesn’t agree with Westerners, so if you want to sample the local food it’s best to go to a clean looking ‘warung’. Charcoal pills are the best remedy, you can get them at chemists around Bali.   Are local spirits safe? Many of the cheaper bars use local spirits. These can cause bad hangovers and in some cases alcohol poisoning. If the prices are too good to be true, they probably are.     GENERAL Should I get a local SIM card? Prepaid sims cost very little and 150,000IDR ($15) of credit should last you at least a week or two. This way you can use transport apps, check in at your favourite places and refer to The Bali Bible on the run. Most cafes / restaurants / hotels etc have WIFI.   What will the weather be like for my trip? Bali experiences a tropical rainy season from around October/November through to March/April. Rainy season can still be fun, usually the sun will shine for a few good hours on most days. But yes, it is hot ALL year round.   What is the best way to deal with street vendors? It’s ok to walk past or ignore pushy street vendors- they are used to it!  If you would like to buy something, make sure you negotiate as this is expected. Test your haggling skills and try and get the price down to 50-60% of the original price.   Are there supermarkets? Bintang supermarket in Seminyak has a wide selection of local and imported items for a fair price. In Canggu there is Canggu station and Pepito (which is also available throughout the whole island). In Sanur there is Hardy’s. Some areas also have Coco Marts. But if you are talking about mini markets, you can always find Alfamart and Indomaret in almost every location in Bali (you’ll find one every 500 meters!)   Where can I go for medical care? Siloam Hospitals and BIMC hospitals are the best options to see a doctor or for medical emergencies with locations all around the island. The best thing to do is hop in a taxi and ask to be dropped at the nearest one. 112 and 118 are the emergency numbers, but sometimes it’s best to call the hospital direct.   Is there a lot of crime? Like any tourist destination in the world, there are thieves that target tourists. However we find Bali is relatively safe and the Balinese are honest by nature. The most common thing to be weary of are bag snatchers on scooters. Always carry your bag on the other side of the road, and keep bags and valuables under the seat when riding a scooter.     How can I be respectful to the locals and their customs? The Balinese are warm and smiley by nature. A smile and ‘Terima Kasih’ (thank you) can go a long way. If you really want to impress, ‘Suksuma’ is the traditional Balinese way of saying thanks. Bali is full of colourful and ceremonies and spectacular culture. They are mostly happy for you to spectate and take photos. Unlike the rest of Indonesia, Bali is Hindu in religion, but when in areas with high Islamic populations it’s best for women to dress modestly. These include the Gillis, Lombok, Java, Medewi etc.

On Nyepi day, the Balinese take part in ‘Catur Bratha Penyepian’ which means no working, no entertainment or pleasure, no lights or fires, and for some, no eating or talking at all for 24 hours.   In short, everyone on the island is supposed to…. Do nothing!   Even Denpasar Airport is closed and all flights are grounded for the period of 6am to 6am the following day. The silence is policed by members of the Pecalang (traditional security men) from the local Banjar (counsil) with punishments dished out for rule breakers, such as cleaning a temple or being made to sit still on a road for 5 hours.   The days leading up to Nyepi are charged with anticipation for the locals. You will see the Balinese busying themselves with preparations of offerings for different ceremonies. Nyepi however is only the final ritualistic step of a series of ceremonies spanning 3-4 days.   Taur Kasanga is the name used officially for the series of rituals, with each one a particular communication with a particular god. Melasti is the first of these ceremonies. Perhaps as foreigners to the Balinese culture, it’s extremely hard to imagine that an island that bustles every other day of the year could fall completely silent, hence why we focus more on the day of Nyepi. For the inherently spiritual Balinese, Nyepi and the surrounding ceremonies are a source of delight. It’s an opportunity to cleanse the body, mind, and soul with meditation and fasting, and to show gratitude to mother earth by allowing her to take a breather.   The Ogoh Ogoh parade is not to be missed if you are visiting the island over Taur Kasanga. Ogoh Ogoh are mythological demons made of papier mache. The children of each Banjar create an Ogoh Ogoh each year, to be paraded along with the Ogoh Ogoh of other Banjars, accompanied with traditional music. The Ogoh Ogoh, which can be up to 5m in height are paraded with gusto and animation to scare away the evil spirits. They often represent the ugly components of society and are burnt to ashes as a show of purification after the parade. Any fan of theatrics and culture would be thrilled to catch the parade. Munggu outside of Canggu and Teuku Umar Simpang Enam and Puputan in Denpasar stage the biggest and best parades.   Fun fact; the Ogoh Ogoh parade was only first celebrated in 1983, unlike Nyepi which has been celebrated for centuries which is amazing proof that Balinese religion and culture has not been diluted by Western influence!   If you are in Bali (and also Nusa Lembongan, Nusa Penida, or Nusa Ceningan) this March 17th, here are some tips from us!   - Make sure you get to an Ogoh Ogoh parade. The most spectacular parades are in Munggu, Teuku Umar Simpang Enam and Puputan in Denpasar. Don’t forget to take a camera to capture once-in-a-lifetime snaps! - We recommend that you find comfortable accommodation with a nice pool and food service, as you will be allowed to roam within a resort or hotel (many hotels and resorts do special discounted or all-inclusive Nyepi packages!). Make sure you check in as early as possible the day before to avoid traffic from road closures for the Ogoh Ogoh parade. - Prepare plenty of snacks and drinks, books, magazines and activities like card games. Take the opportunity for stargazing after dark, Bali has never been so sparkly! Enjoy the fresh, clean air early the morning after. - As a non-Balinese, you are not obligated to follow all rules of abstinence, however keep the noise down during the day and ensure your curtains are closed at night so no light can escape. Otherwise you might find yourself enrolled in a temple clean! - Have you considered doing as the Balinese do? You are welcome to take part in ‘Catur Bratha Penyepian’ or abstinence. Rest, practice gratitude for beautiful Bali and give your full attention to your family - If taking a lay day during your trip isn’t on your agenda, you can boat to the Gili Islands or fly or boat to Lombok, Bali’s Islamic neighbour. Bali is the only Hindu part of Indonesia, and therefore the only place where Nyepi takes place   ***If you are in Bali for Nyepi, remember to book your accommodation in advance. Make sure the place you are staying at has excellent facilities to keep you entertained throughout Nyepi. Check out our recommendations below for some great Nyepi 2018 packages and special offers.   Embed https://www.thebalibible.com/article/balis-day-of-silence-nyepi-packages-2018
