Sun protection

In Bali the sun can be very intens. It is therefor advisable to use good sun protection and sunscreen so you don't get sunburned. Around noon the sun has the highest intensity. We recommend you to avoid the sun as much as possible around that time.


Maybe at abundances, but make sure that you have absolutely no drugs with you when visiting Bali / Indonesia. They take drugs very serious and if you use or transport drugs and you get caught you will have a lot of problems. The penalties on Bali for these kind of activities are enormous, including life imprisonment and in some cases even the death penalty.
