Bali Money Changers May 15, 2011
Bali is an awesome place to visit. I'd been there dozens of time and love it everytime.

However when you change money at the money changers - be very careful!! There are many money changers in Kuta and so so many of them are incredibly dodgy. They may offer really attractive exchange rates but what you do not know is these 1) their calculator is rigged hence reflecting a wrong (lower) amount

2) watch them count the money. They often count it in front of you but then they slipped a note or 2 back when you are not looking. Many times, they would use distraction. There would be people coming up to u talking to you or pretending to sell u stuff.

Go to the bank or big money changers. Even then, use your own calculator and count the money yourself (when its in your hands),

But apart from that, Bali is GREAT!
