Be careful not to step on religious offerings on the streets.

A small bowl is constructed with palm leaves and filled with flowers, incense, food, and various other items that locals wish to offer to the gods. These offerings are an important symbol of Balinese spirituality, and it is considered disrespectful to step on them. Always be careful to look where you are walking.
Haggle prices while shopping in a market.
Balinese vendors will always price items higher than what they are worth. This is because haggling prices is a common practice in Indonesia. Rather than settling for the original price, try haggling the price down a bit. When you have Canberra to Bali return flights, haggling can be exciting and creates a fun dynamic with the locals.
Never touch a Balinese person’s head.

Don’t use your left hand to touch someone or hand something to them.
Like in many Asian cultures, the left hand has traditionally been associated with personal hygiene. While hygiene practices have modernised for the most part, there can still be a stigma to using the left hand. Even if you are left-handed, try to avoid using your left hand with locals once your flight has arrived to Ngurah Rai Airport (DPS).
Dress modestly when visiting a temple.
Balinese temples encourage visitors to wear conservative clothes, and both men and women are required to wear a sarong to cover the legs. When you have booked Canberra to Bali return flights, you can bring your own sarong or rent a sarong from the temple. Sandals and bare shoulders are ok, but swimsuits or cropped tops should be covered with a more modest top.
