When sharing is an experience



First of all, I would like to welcome you to Bali, one of the islands of the Indonesian archipelago. Idyllic tropical beaches, lush green forests and the terraced rice fields tripping down hillsides like giant steps are some common impressions of the island. You can discover more of the extraordinary richness of the Balinese culture and the authentic way of the island’s living with me Dedy, your special tour guide.


About me

My name is Dedy. I studied tourism at Dhyana Pura Hotel and Training Centre Denpasar 1991 till 1993, a two year diploma certificate program at the tour and travel department. After completing the study, I proceeded to get a license to become a registered English speaking tour guide in Bali. Then I started working at PT. Tour East Indonesia as a tour guide (1994-1997) handling Australian tourists (Jet Set, Qantas Holiday, Ansett Holiday), European tourists (Kuoni UK, Aurinko Matkat, Premier Holiday, Trail Finders, Asia World Travel), American tourists (Asian Affair). I have also been involved in handling Meeting Incentive Conference and Events (MICE) movements with other tour guides such as General Electric Capital at Four Seasons Resort, Mitsubishi at Grand Hyatt Nusa Dua , President Club at Ritz Carlton and many more.

In 1999 I got the chance to represent the province of Bali to participate in The Ship for South East Asia Youth Program (SSEAYP) together with other Indonesian delegates. The program had the purpose of promoting mutual friendships and understanding among youth from Asia and Japan. Then in 2001 I was invited to  attend The 3rd International Greenscouts Meeting and Jamboree in  Miyama, Japan which was organized by The Japan Association and the Japan Asian Friendship Society (JAFS). It is upholding the main objective of the Greenscout Movement to protect and encourage people’s awareness about the importance of environmental protection, conservation and preservation of Mother Earth’s natural resources and biodiversity and to achieve the vision of a sustainable life through a green environment. I presented the activities of Pangkung Gayung’s community in Negara to live a green life, in which I am involved as their “green” guide. Those  journeys have enhanced my  knowledge and world wide cultural understanding.  Since 2010 I have been operating Baliinsight tours.


Through my  website you can learn more about my profile including the guiding services I now offer. I captured some of the images of Bali myself during guiding time or when I am spending time with my family, which you can see at the gallery section: photos of my family, traditional activities in Bali, Balinese ceremonies, artwork and sharing Bali moments, including the natural life of my native village, Negara, West Bali. This will give you some ideas to help you decide where to go sharing with me. For all transport I use Air Conditioned vehicles with insurance coverage.

Where others fear to tread…West Bali awaits!

It is easy to follow like sheep to the fold and visit the long established tourist spots. I would like to take you to greener pastures, that few tourists get to experience, where you can “get away from it all” and enjoy the Bali which you have dreamed about at home. Long empty beaches, small intimate villages, beautiful rice fields, thick and dense tropical forest and much more!

Our first stop is at Soka village to enjoy the superb view of wide open rice terraces and the Indian Ocean in a distance. Watch the locals going about their daily work and if lucky, enjoy one of the many temple festivals.

This takes us to our next stop at Rambut Siwi temple dating back to the 16th century, a temple where many people make a stopover to take the holy waters and pray before their onward journey.

Take a ride in a “Dokar”- traditional pony and trap, through the ancient town of Negara and visit an original house of the sailor Bugis people from the island of Sulawesi. A walk through a colourful Balinese traditional market of Negara will make this morning complete.

We leave the town of Negara and go up into the backdrop of Mount Merbuk separating south and north Bali. Enjoy a short village walk deep in the heart of the mountains and wander around a plantation to identify trees and local vegetation such as clove trees, vanilla vines, cacao trees etc. You will be greeted by musicians (from the local community) playing music which has originated in the later years from Negara. This traditional bamboo music is called “Jegog”. If you like you can join in and learn how to play the music while enjoying the refreshment  of young coconut milk (included).

Your lunch will be served at my family home compound. Ibu Desi (my mother), a retired cooking teacher is the chef for the day. This is the moment when you can try the authentic taste of spicy island Bali. Don’t worry…not too hot. Please note please let me know if you have some diet request.

Then enjoy the trip back to your hotel. A stop for tea or Bali coffee is made on the way.

Tips for Women Travellers in Bali

Sexual harassment and rape are not too common in Bali, as far as foreigners are concerned. Many foreign women come to Bali looking for a holiday romance. Nothing wrong with that, just saying there is a well worn path, and many Bali beach boys, especially in the Kuta area, are actively trying to get together with foreign women, for the financial benefits. If this does not include you, don’t stress, be polite and say you are married. Many solo women travelers wear a ring, to indicate marriage. Ignore the pettier kinds of behavior (whistling, shouting, etc.), but make a scene if you are ever pressured into doing things against your will, or are being moved from one location to another. If you are raped / attacked, call the Bali Police, (0361) 224111, and contact your consulate.
-Dress code in Bali : Bali in a Hindu island and therefore enjoys relaxed attitudes to things of a sexual nature. Hindu art and Balinese dances, often contain deliberately suggestive material. On the beach you can go topless, without too much to worry about, though nude bathing is not cool.
Out at night you can wear pants, a dress, a skirt, or shorts, no worries. Indonesian women out late in the party scene often wear skimpy outfits, so you can enjoy the tropical climate, and not feel you have to cover up.
One place where you should cover up, is a Balinese temple. You’ll need a long sleeve, non-revealing shirt, sarong & sash (which you can often rent). You may not enter a Balinese temple during menstruation, as the Balinese consider you ‘sebel‘ (ritually unclean).
-Tampons, medicines and the Pill are available at local apoteks (pharmacies), but it’s more convenient to bring supplies from home. If you’re on the Pill, bring enough to last your entire trip (and remember that severe vomiting or diaorrhea can render it ineffective).
-Health care and pregnancy: Private healthcare in Bali is okay; if you find you’re pregnant during your trip, go to a nearby private doctor or hospital for advice. SOS International or BIMC are good clinics, both in the Kuta area. Most large hotel / resorts will have a doctor on call.
-Hospitals & Clinics in Bali.
Abortion is illegal in Indonesia, however, I know 2 people who have gone to a clinic in Bali, and had one, so ask around if you need one.
-Travelling in the rest of Indonesia:
The rest of Indonesia, with the exception of Jakarta, has way less foreigners. You will find yourself in the extreme minority, when traveling through Lombok, Java, Sumatra etc. While not generally dangerous, there are certain places that offer a higher degree of personal risk than others, including Papua, Aceh, Central Sulawesi. You should research your trip and talk to locals, for the latest news about your next destination.
The rest of Indonesia is either Muslim, Christian, or some variety of animist religion. When travelling in Muslim areas, its good for women to wear a non-revealing top, and long pants, definitely no sexy wear. Now, here’s the flip-side. In Jakarta you’ll find nightlclubs galore, that’s different. All across Indonesia there are whore houses galore, that still doesn’t mean its a good idea for you to wear sexy clothing. Locals will wonder why you are traveling in a foreign land without your ‘husband’, so you want to give them the impression you are just another traveler, so as not to draw attention. In general you will not have any major problems travelling as a female in Indonesia.
