Exploring Bali and Yogyakarta with Smailing Tour – an Award Winning Tour Agency in Indonesia5 October, 2015
Bali is a very popular tourist destination for travellers worldwide – with its beautiful resorts and interesting Balinese culture and history. There are however a few things to take note of when travelling in Bali with tourist traps and scams like private hire drivers who are out to earn more from you by bringing you to shops/restaurants that pay them a commission. You will likely get ripped off at these places where they could sell you inferior products or give you a menu with significantly marked up prices.
Thus, if you are going to hire a private driver to check out the sights in Bali, make sure you hire one with good reviews on Tripadvisor or other similar sites. There are many travel agencies in Indonesia – one of the more well known one is Smailing DMC which offers quite a number of different travel packages for visitors to Bali and Yogyakarta.
