“Research and Plan for a Smooth Journey”is the first piece of advice from Wonderful Indonesia.

All visitors arriving at Bali’s I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport will now receive a guide outlining proper behavior on the island. The provincial government has made clear how it expects visitors to behave during their stay on the island following an increase in improper behavior by foreigners.
“Secure Your Belongings: Guard Your Treasures” is the second most important safety advice from Wonderful Indonesia.
“Keep their precious belongings under lock and key by utilizing the convenient hotel safe or securing them in their accommodation. While exploring the enchanting sights, remain vigilant and discreet to deter any potential theft,” says Wonderful Indonesia.
The following top tip is sage advice that we all probably overlook when we are out enjoying the sun. Wonderful Indonesia admonishes us all to drink plenty of water during the holiday season.
Water safety is possibly the most pertinent and important safety advice Wonderful Indonesia has for visitors going to Bali.
They say, “dive into Bali’s mesmerizing waters while adhering to essential safety measures. Keep an eye out for informative warning signs, tides, and currents before taking a refreshing swim. If in doubt, seek the guidance of vigilant lifeguards or friendly locals for a splashing good time!”
Visitors are also warned about street food by Wonderful Indonesia. While most restaurants, local warungs, and even street vendors are safe places for foreigners to eat, there are a few warning signs to watch out for.
