As of tomorrow, I'm going on a 10 hour plane trip to Bali for a week. It'll be my first time overseas.

Has anyone been there before?
If so, what's it like, etc?

Bali Island in Indonesia?

Yeah, Bali is an Indonesian island in the western most of the Lesser Sunda Islands, lying between Java to the west and Lombok to the east.

In some countries in that area, it's capital punishment (death) for possession of drugs.

Awesome.

I'm going in November/December, and i've been talking to a few friends who have been and here's what I can tell you.
- Don't drink the tap-water unless it's been boiled. It's pretty infected, if you do drink it and it hasn't been boiled you'll get really sick.
- The price isn't set on anything outside of supermarkets and fast-food stores. You basically banter with the shop owners for it.
- Don't ever talk to a salesman unless you want to buy something there, and even then wait until you're inside. They're sneaky bastards, as soon as you respond to them they won't leave you alone, and they try and up their price when you go inside.
- Only get into the blue taxis. Theyre government owned ones, the other guys will charge you more than the fare.
- Stay out of Kuta at night time.
- Don't be a smartass to the locals. They're generally nice people who've obviously had it tough recently.

Thanks for the advice. I'm going to put it, along with your other advice, into a book, the pages of which I will then use to wipe my ass.

Thanks for that.
I'll keep all that in mind.

p.s. 'Some countries' includes Bali...

Unless you have a stupid long name and you're in leagues with gangsters...then it's only 22 years with good behaviour...
