Indonesia Local Customs: 123 reviews and 89 photos


<BR>People in Indonesia is v. poor economically but rich in the spirit. So, it helps to reward them a little when they serve you well or have shown you kindness. A little monetary reward (US$1) is v. much appreciated & you'll be blessed for having help them to survive since the 1997 economic crisis has left many destitute. One can ease another's burden by just offering some Uang Kopi (Coffee money).
