Visitors' Best Practices on Balinese Clothing Etiquette

It is okay to wear an open shouldered clothing like this in Bali, as long as you don't plan to meet
one of those royals in a puri, a royal residence. How you wear your clothing is how you present
yourself in respecting others.

She understands the local culture and her own. She knows
where she plans to go, and therefore, she appropriately dresses up
like so.

In the confinement of a puri, a royal palace, one has to wear something
'polite' to their standard. Here is the best practice to be in one of the puris.

Whether you like it or not, you have to wear one of those sarongs
to cover up a little bit so you can enter the heart of a royal palace.

And yes. They won't let you go unless you buy one or show them that
you already have one. Actually, a simple and polite  'NO' will do.

Like I said, it is okay to wear anything you want, as long as you know where
you are heading. This is in one busy and colorful traditional market in Ubud, Bali.

Don't be afraid to get out. Being prepared in the first place and knowing a little
bit of information about clothing and the local etiquette will make your
trip worthwhile.
