Hello all,

I am curious how Americans are recieved in Bali????

Tourists? Expats?

Guess it depends on much more than just 'being American'. Some Aussies tend to get drunk and behave improper (my own experience) and I can understand why people don't like them.

What, what what,what did you do to investigate this all by yourself?

We are not USA and do not live on Bali.

But if you behave normally and you have money why should they hate you? Bali is not Java.

Wil je ook meester van je eigen leven zijn?

Chris, just go and enjoy.You'll love it....
Only thing: Relaxe... (hehehe you sound so annoyed)
Fyi: Expat is someone working in country abroad.
Main problem with tourists is just general on Bali: Extreme drinkers and very noisy annoying people are not so welcome, but I think no place they are Emoticon: Smile Emoticon: Smile

CYA! Emoticon: Bye bye Emoticon: Bye bye

Just because you're paranoid don't mean there're not after you...

My husband and I love Bali. We have to save hard to get there--- but it is worth it. I would suggest that you learn some Bahasa Indonesia; even a little will do. The Balinese people seem to appreciate the fact that you have made the effort.

Tip for all a must see: The documentary 'In Plane Site DVD/video' see this link for more info:

I am an American and have travelled to Java & Bali.

Bali's main town, Denpasar, has nightlife & crowds and gets rowdy. If you are looking for a quieter place, travel just outside Denpasar.

I prefer Bandung, Java. I love Bandung - a city in the mountains, perfect weather, great views and culturally very exciting.

Everywhere in Indonesia you will meet very beautiful, warm and sincere people - please show respect to them and treat them the same way.

. . . and, Indonesia is very, very safe.

selamat jalan!
