Recently, there is a new scam that has been on increase in the local streets of Bali. While exchanging money , these phoney money changers will first show you a stack of $10,000 rupiah. However, once you are convinced they remove few notes from the stack behind the counter.

What you should do instead?

We have been stressing on the importance of carrying cash while in Bali. Also, in case you forgot to exchange currency, make sure that you get it done only through authorised money change units.

Avoid Guides Unless You are Ready to Pay for Them

There are hoards of people acclaiming themselves as guides outside all famous temples such as Goa Gajah (Elephant cave), Besakih Temple and various other tourist sites. In the beginning they will make you believe that the service is free, however, at the end of the tour they will ask you for donation and you are left in a situation with no other option than paying them.

What you should do instead?

Be very straightforward once you enter the premises. If you are intentionally are looking for a guided tour then make sure that you talk about money prior to the tour. Also, in latter case they will actually provide you with an insightful tour as they know they will be earning at the end of the tour.

It had been a long time since we were planning for a family vacation, but it wasn’t possible if we were working and children’s schools. But with Thrillophilia’s assistance it was real quick to decide when and where, we decided to go to Bali and it is beautiful, as well as a must visit place for anyone.
We booked a tour to Bali from Chennai, we were relaxed with the help of Thrillophilia, as they did everything on our behalf, it would have been a tough journey without them. Love and support.
