Bali tourists given good behaviour guidelines
Irked by an increasing number of badly behaving tourists, Bali has issued a list of dos and don’ts for visitors.
It has produced a card which will be given to all arrivals at immigration checkpoints.
While most are common sense, several recent incidents have caused outrage and tested the patience of the local community.
These mostly involve lack of sensitivity to traditional customs and at holy sites such as temples.
Naked cavorting at temples and sacred natural sites have caused outrage in recent months.
Those who ignore the rules could face legal action and/or deportation.
The list warns travelers to act with decorum at holy sites and wear the appropriate clothing.
There are the usual reminders about aggressive behavior, drunkenness and drug taking.
There are also rules about following traffic laws and only using licensed guides on tours.
