In the Balinese language there is no equivalent word for tourist. The word used instead is "guest". Around 80% of Bali's economy is based on tourism and it remains a place  where locals freely mix with foreign visitors.

There are ways to visit Bali and be safe. One is to stay away from any drug use. The use of drugs is a very serious offense that can lead you to a death penalty.

Authorities here take drugs very seriously, so please do not be tempted if anyone offers you any kind of drug. Just say no and avoid problems. 

You can count on me to show you the less known Bali while keeping an eye towards your safety and well being.

Balinese people feel a strong kind spirit with Bali, and participate in ceremonies all year through to bond with their community and family. Once you visit Bali I know that you will feel the same way.
