Essential Information

Currency: Rupiah (Rp)

Money: Ubud has numerous banks and ATMs. Be aware that the skimming of cards at kiosk ATMs has been reported; try to use ATMs attached to banks as these have better security.

Tipping: Tipping in Indonesia isn’t a standard practice, as a service charge may be added to the final bill in hotels and restaurants. If service, however, isn’t included or it exceeds all expectations, you are welcome to leave a little extra to show your gratitude and it will be appreciated. It’s considered acceptable to round up to the nearest rupiah when in doubt on what to tip. Be sure to hand the tip directly to the person you want to thank for excellent service.

Bargaining: Bargaining can be an enjoyable part of shopping in Bali. Try following these steps:

  • Have some idea of the item's worth.

  • Establish a starting price – ask the seller for their price.

  • Your first offer can be from one-third to two-thirds of that price.

  • If you don't like the price, walk – the vendor may go lower.

  • When you name a price, you're committed – you must buy if your offer is accepted.


Power socket:
The standard used in Bali is a two-pin plug (round): 

  • Voltage: 230 V

  • Frequency: 50 Hz

  • Power sockets: type C / F

Weather: April/May sees the end of the wet season and start of the dry season. It is one of the best times to travel to Bali, Indonesia. There are less crowds, and the weather is more stable (drier and less humid). Temperature average is 27°C (81°F), while the average low is 22°C (72°F), and the average high is 32°C (90°F).

Language: Bahasa Indonesia and Balinese. English is widely spoken.

Taxis: Are easily accessible and fairly cheap in Bali, try to only use Bluebird Taxis to avoid scams, these taxis operate with a meter service and are regulated.

Drinking Water: Tap water in Bali is never safe to drink. Widely available and cheap, bottled water is generally safe but check the seal is intact when purchasing. Look for places that allow you to refill containers, thus cutting down on landfill. Most ice in restaurants is fine if it is uniform in size and made at a central plant (standard for large cities and tourist areas).
