    Behaviour

    Many tours of Bali Discovery Tours bring small groups to fragile traditional cultures and nature areas. We ask that you leave these beautiful destinations as you find them and obey all cultural and safety guidelines given by our trained guides. Help us in our efforts to preserve the environment and preserve the natural heritage of Bali. Please take only photographs, bring back only memories and leave only footprints!

    The following behavior is not permitted on our tours:

    The collection of coral or shells or the purchase of any items made from these materials.

    The distribution of money or small gifts to children. Such behavior creates a negative and potentially damaging expectation vis-à-vis tourism. Bali Discovery Tours is happy to provide clients with a list of local charities willing to wisely distribute charitable donations.

    The purchase of any item made from endangered animal product. Please do not purchase these items.

    Business Hours

    Government office hours usually run from 08.00 a.m. until 05.00 p.m. Monday to Friday and half days on Saturdays. Supermarkets, department stores and shops - like similar businesses around the world maintain long opening hours for their customer's convenience.

    Museums are closed on Mondays.

    Currency

    The Indonesian Rupiah offers very favorable rates of exchange and buying power against most foreign currencies. Hotels, moneychangers, and banks provide foreign exchange services.

    We strongly recommend the use of banks, whenever possible, when exchanging currency. Always insist on an official receipt at the time of the transaction and take your time to make sure the money received matches the total shown on the receipt.

    Those bringing foreign currency to Indonesia should note that many banks and moneychangers refuse to accept foreign bank notes that are soiled, torn or generally poor condition.
