"Visiting Talk" Bali Local Custom Tip by Poquita
Bali Local Customs: 246 reviews and 373 photos
#When visiting a Balinese house, please remember to remove your shoes before entering.
#It is also customary when visiting to bring a small gift for the host (oleh-oleh), make sure it is wrapped. When it is accepted it generally just taken and put aside with little or no fuss. This is because they are saving face, theirs and yours. How? If the present is not to their liking you won?t see that, thus you save face, and if he unwraps it immediately he appears greedy, hence he would lose face.
#If there are people sitting in front of the house you are visiting, just say ?permissi? when passing and crouch slightly.*
