What are your thoughts on Bali? Why would visit it? It seems boring and expensive, yet it is so popular.

    its not expensive by a longshot. just more expensive than the rest of indonesia, which is still cheaper than thailand.

    bali is one of the most lush regions on the planet due to rainfall levels. unlike most other areas in general, pretty much every area is a beach. their culture wasn't genocided by islam, and people live in 400 year old stone buildings. the people are relaxed and friendly, and less jaded by tourism than most other places with tons of foreigners.

    the nature and coral are fairly intact, the population is low. it is isolated from pretty much every other area on the planet culturally and geographically.

    unlike most other places in indonesia first world accomodations and service are extremely widespread. the only thing it lacks is first world medical or delivery.

    what exactly is your complaint? that rice and fish cost 4 dollars instead of 2 dollars?

    People pretend Bali is something it isn’t, and that’s what makes it disappointing. Otherwise it’s comparable to any other over-developed southeast Asian jungle (with some unique features) so if you go to, say, Sri Lanka instead you can be assured you’re not missing much. Bali isn’t expensive at all.
    My highlights there were snorkeling around the shipwrecks, especially the Japanese one in the northeast, and paying the wife of my hotel owner to give me cooking lessons. But the best thing you can do is rent a bike and just frick around the little redneck backroads for a week.
    I will say the food was very good, I still think about the mi goreng and babi goreng and pre-Covid you could get a plate of tiger prawns for like $3
    My only regret is not taking an extra week to see Lombok.

    I just returned from Bali, first time there. Absolutely loved it.

    Avoid the tourist spots like Kuta, just absolute shit holes with no culture and expensive prices.

    North Seminyak is on the cusp of being fricked by tourism but still holds a lot of culture and local life.

    Bali is only expensive if you want to do expensive things or go to expensive Western restaurants.
    We were eating at local restaurants for two, mains, entrees, long neck bintangs or wienertails and we were spending between $11-$16AUD in total.
    The food is delicious too.
    Balinese are incredibly friendly and accommodating too.

    I did not see any begging unlike in India.

    Best thing to do is hire a scooter, get a 150cc to tackle the mountains up north and just ride around. It's beautiful.

      $5 USD/meal per person is $450/month for food if you eat three meals a day.

    What's the dude weed situation in these countries

    • 6 months ago
      Anonymous

      Possession of marijuana in Indonesia is punishable by up to 10 years in prison. If you want to smoke weed, go to Thailand.
      Here in the Philippines, according to the locals, people WILL call the police if they smell cannabis smoke in their barangay. There are undoubtedly parts of the country where cannabis use is socially acceptable, but not in Metro Manila.

    >it is so popular
    It's all Australians from what I can tell. Australia to Bali is a hop, skip, and a jump, it's like Americans going to The Bahamas or something, so a lot of Australian tourist packages frame Bali as a fun getaway. It also doesn't have the extreme population density or the repressive Islamic practices that other parts of Indonesia have (only modest Hindu practices that can be downplayed as "exotic"), so it was ripe for tourism

          East coast people are also much less interested in that sort of stuff. The dream of a lot of Californians is to go on a "surf trip" to some faraway place with good waves and warm water. Diving attracts people from everywhere though. Bali also shows up on the hippie begpacker circuit a lot so it must be a "spiritual" place.

    I am not interested in beaches and resorts. I’m more into wildlife and hiking.
    I want to experience the Wallace Line and go to Lombok.
    I guess Bali could work fine for these?

    It's overrated. Many thieves and lazy guys who don't want to work and just take advantage of tourists. Beaches aren't that great. Not sure I would go back
