You only want to enjoy big Balinese smiles while you travel the island – so take some time to learn the basics. A little effort can go a long way so - consider this your cheat sheet in Balo lingo that will have you giggling with the locals in no time.
If you only learn one word, just one - make it – permisi. It is like sorry and excuse me all rolled into one. After a week of dodging crowds in markets, holding your place in a queue or trying to get someone’s attention - it will become the most used word in your repertoire. So brush up on your local lingo and selamat jalan.
