With Indonesia having
the highest Muslim
population in the world,
Ramadhan should be accounted for even in Bali.

Yes....Bali is Hindu,
but plenty of the people who
work in Bali are from other areas of Indonesia.
Hence, they are Muslim.

This is the Muslim fasting month,
and most other islands may
close down for a few days during this time.

Usually towards the end of the month for Idul Fitri.

If you have staff that work in your home or business
expect them to take a week or so off,
and they may expect that you pay them 1 + ? of their salary.
It is custom to do this.

This occurs sometime around October-November.
