Question: What should I avoid in Indonesia?

What are bad things about Indonesia?

The Threat of Terrorism. Indonesia has a dangerous history when it comes to terrorism – one of the most infamous in the world happened in 2002 in Bali. The Bali Bombings killed over 200 people and injured 240 more (most of which were tourists) as a series of hotels and tourist areas were bombed in Kuta, Bali.

Is street food safe in Indonesia?

Do not try to eat raw or partially cooked street food. Gorengan (deep-fried foods), mie (noodles) and nasi (rice) are solid picks. Foods that are tumis (stir-fried or sautéed) or bakar (grilled or baked) are all relatively safe choices.

Can you eat fruit in Bali?

Yes, Bali has delicious fruits and vegetables. In general, raw fruits and vegetables from reputable restaurants are fine for consumption. If you purchase produce from a store or market, be sure to wash it thoroughly in fresh - not tap - water before cooking or eating.

Is tap water safe to drink in Indonesia?

Yes but public tap water should only be consumed after boiling and filtering unless you are told otherwise. The main issue is pathogens due to poor water pipe infrastructure and the tropical heat.
