About Seminyak

Seminyak is a further extension of Legian village reaching towards the suburbs and is abundant in antique and designer boutiques with many eating establishments of European and Western cuisine.

A cosmopolitan mix and is home to hundreds of expats involved in commerce of one sort or another. Seminyak runs from the daytime trendy Blue Ocean Boulevard across Double Six Road to the restaurants and bars of Dhyana Pura Street.

Tourist accommodation is not really fine than in the previous areas but you’ll find good standard hotels, interesting food and sophisticated shopping and nightlife spots.
Bali Travel Tips

The following list has been compiled to help you make the most of your stay in Bali. If you have any further concerns that are not mentioned here, please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or queries that you may have.

General things that you should or shouldn’t do…


  1. change money at a reputable looking location; use your own (or the hotel’s) calculator before changing!

  2. put on loads of High Factor Waterproof Sun Cream (especially if you intend to spend a lot of time in the water).

  3. drink a lot of bottled water and eat a lot of fresh fruit - do your body a favor.

  4. be careful with your belongings at all times. Crime is on the increase and can ruin your holiday. Cases of handbag snatching have been reported, so leave important documents in your hotel safe and wear your bag across your shoulders!

  5. try not to step on offerings in the street (walk around them).

  6. respect the slow pace of processions when stuck behind one, i.e. don’t honk!

  7. haggle when buying (except on price-tagged goods).

  8. buy ‘Imodium’ to relieve bouts of Bali belly.

  9. have a great holiday!

Don’t …

  1. forget to take your passport (or a photocopy of your ID), with you at all times and a copy of Bali Plus!

  2. swim outside designated swimming areas on the beach, currents can be very strong. Swim between the red and yellow flags.

  3. do drugs! It can carry the death penalty, and there are enough foreigners residing in Bali courtesy of the Govt. prison service!

  4. touch people’s heads - it is very offensive to Hindus.

  5. enter a temple during menstruation. Sorry Ladies!

  6. forget to put salt on your food & drink water - you will probably sweat a lot.
  7. worry too much about the ice - it’s government-quality controlled in established bars and restaurants.

  8. forget to look and listen while you cross the road. Cars may stop, motorbikes may not!

  9. forget to reconfirm your flight 72 hours prior to flying. Airport Departure Tax is: International = Rp. 100,000 Domestic = Rp. 50,000
