    Well, what is not to like about Indonesian cuisine – it is spicy, rich and above all bursts into favor as soon as you taste it. Imagine digging into spicy curry, nasi goreng, and gudeng. While enjoying the amazing hills on one side and crystal clear waters of the wide open Ocean on the other side.

    The best thing about food in Bali is that you can get it anywhere and every possible areas. From small cafes on the street end to posh beach side resorts that promises much more than just ravishing meal. When in Bali, do not miss the breakfast on small cafes at the road-end.

  • 57Warung/ Street Food of Bali

    Warungs are actually small family owned shops/cafes that mostly sell street cuisine in Bali. The food is generally Panag style and is made right from the scratch in front of the customer.

    If, in case, you entering Bali with the intention of staying more than 30 days or have something more long at the top of the priority list like beginning a business or seeing family, you should apply for a visa ahead of time – as in before you leave for Bali. For this, you should apply through an Indonesian Embassy and/or Consulate in your nation of origin.

    There is no second opinion that you can apply for the visa on your own, however, the process becomes more smoother and less demanding with an assistance of an expert travel/visa specialist who knows precisely what to do and how to streamline the entire procedure a bit. Following list are different categories of vis that can be availed as per the criteria you fit in :

    Tourist Visa

    A Tourist Visa endures up to 60 days and perfectly fine as long you intend to visit this beauty place with the sole intention of touring it.

    Social/Cultural Visa

    If, in case you are visiting Bali not with the purpose of travelling but say studying, visiting family or if you are a part and student exchange program, then, you might be needed to apply for Social/Cultural Visa. For this visa, a valid passport as well as passport photograph is must.

    You will need to acquire an application structure from Indonesian embassy or consulate and an introduction letter or guarantee of sponsorship from a reliable individual or school in Indonesia. The visa is substantial for 60 days, however, it can be extended for maximum of about six months considering you extend it for one month at a time. You will be required to pay for the application and visa extension charges in case of extension.

In case, there is a need for extending the visa, you will be required to pay a visit to the local immigration authorities or a visa agent. Bali also provides an option of a Multiple Entry Business Visa which is valid for as long as 12 months.

    However, Business Visa comes with certain terms and conditions i.e. you are visiting the country for business motives of meeting overseas business partners, however, it does not mean that you are taking up employment (of any sort ) in Indonesia. In order to apply for a Business Visa, you are required to have a passport with at least six months validity, a passport photograph, a completed visa application form and an evidence that supports that you have enough funds to cover your accommodation in Indonesia (usually accepted in the form of a bank statement).

    In addition to the above mentioned, you also need to submit two supporting letters that outline the exact summary of your visit, one from your workplace and the other from your guarantor in Indonesia.

    Employment Visa/KITAS

    For those who are looking for an employment in Thailand need to avail Employment Visa or referred as Temporary Stay Permit or KITAS. However, in order to apply for this visa, you need to show a letter that proves you are sponsored by a company or organization active in Thailand. This is best suited for foreigners who are looking for work and play kind of an atmosphere.

In order to apply for this visa, your passport should be valid for at least 18 months and you will also be required to prove certain insurance standards such as financial capability for your stay.

    60 Day Tourist Visa ‘ 211’

    ‘The 211’ or ‘B -211 Tourist Visit Visa’ is another 60 – day tourist visa that is not known by majority of travelers to Indonesia. One of the most impressive thing about 211 Visa is that just like any other tourist visa, this too can be extended for a 6 months duration, costing for about 550k for each month over a period of 60 days. The 211 Visa can be availed from embassies and consulates, and is also extendable for up to 6 months (costing about 550k for each month over the 60 days).

    Image Credit : Joan Campderrós-i-Canas - Flickr

    You might need to get familiar with the term ‘Visa Run’ especially if you are a first time traveller to an international destination. While in Indonesia, this run is usually exercised by expats either on the day or couple of days before their visa is about to expire. In order, to extend your Visa, you will be needed to visit Indonesian embassy in Singapore as this is one of the quick and efficient government organizations.

    Generally, it takes three days for the process, however, if you realised it just now and your visa is going to expire in next few days, you can always opt for ‘Express Service’ which provides you with a new visa in just one day.

    One things to keep in mind before visiting the Indonesian Embassy is that it is a highly sophisticated organization that follows its own dress code. Please avoid wearing shorts, sandals, flip-flops - this is not a sightseeing trip in Bali. Make sure you present yourself in formal clothes or descent a T-shirt and jeans.

  • 99What if I do not Extend my Visa

  • Scams in Bali and How to Avoid Them

  • 105Bogus Drivers

    Most of the travellers prefer renting a personal driver for sightseeing in Bali as cabs are expensive. However, since most of these drivers are local, thus, they very-well know in and outs of the entire region. They might fool you to with their own recommendation when it comes to cafes, restaurants and other tourist spots as by alluring you they can earn their commission from these places.

    What you should do instead?

    Make sure you have done your own homework about the place that you are visiting. It is always good to plan your own itinerary than be dependant on somebody else. Be very open about your choices - just remember at the end of the day, you are paying your driver. Be straightforward about your choices as well as pit stops in between your journey

  • 106Surcharge When Booking a Taxi

    If you are planning to rent a cab for sightseeing in Bali, then be aware of the surcharge policy that the local drivers follow here. Most of the travellers have fallen victim to this trend especially when travelling from Kuta to Ubud, as the driver states that since the taxi is Kuat based they will have to pay surcharge once they reach the other destined destination.

    What you should do instead?

    As mentioned earlier, Uber is rare in Bali due to the monopoly of local drivers. However, you can rely on Bluebird Taxi as they run on meter.


  • 107Phoney Money Changers

    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.

  • 108Avoid 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.
