Indonesia Travel Tips
Women travelers to Indonesia are advised to carry a sarong they come in handy as you may need to cover up before you enter a temple or mosque.
Prices are seldom fixed. Haggle while you shop, especially in street-side bazaars.
Drink only bottled water and ensure they're sealed when you buy them.
Street-side food may be great to taste but is not very clean or hygienic. Stick to major restaurants as these are inexpensive but good.
A 10% tip at restaurants is the norm. When it comes to tipping cabbies there is no fixed rule; tip if they have been helpful.
