|BALINESE & RELIGION
The Balinese are one of over 300 ethnic groups in Indonesia. The majority of the population adheres to Agama Tirtha, which translates to religion of the holy water. This unique Hinduism is formed as a combination of existing local beliefs and Hindu influences from mainland Southeast Asia and South Asia.
The most widely spoken languages in Bali are Bahasa Indonesia (official national language of Indonesia) and Bahasa Bali, the local dialect. English is widely used around the island.
The weather in Bali is generally hot and humid throughout the year. Temperature ranges from 24 - 32 degrees Celsius (75 - 89 degree Fahrenheit). Bali has two distinct seasons. Rainy season occurs generally around November through April. Precipitation falls mainly during the late afternoon and early evening hours. Dry season generally occurs around May through October.
Cotton or lightweight clothing is suitable for daywear. Light cotton, viscose or silk clothes are most comfortable to wear in this warm climate (linen is usually too heavy). It is preferred to avoid immodest clothing when visiting temples.
The local currency is Indonesian rupiah (Rp). As currency often fluctuates, we recommend that you check the rate prior to your departure to Bali. Currency exchange service is available at the villa’s Front Desk. You could also change your money or traveler’s checks at banks and local money changers. ATMs are available in major tourist areas. Generally, credit cards and traveler's checks can be utilized at major hotels and restaurants, however, please be advised that there are few tourist areas that only accept foreign bank notes.
You may only bring in to Indonesia a maximum of 200 cigarettes or 50 cigars or 100g of sliced tobacco, as well as two liters of alcohol. Narcotics are strictly prohibited.
