Clothing and Manners

Dress is normally casual and light clothing is advisable due to the hot, humid climate. Trousers or slacks and shirts are generally considered appropriate but a jacket and tie are required for formal occasions or when making official calls. For certain formal occasions long-sleeved batik shirts are acceptable. For travel to mountain areas, a light sweater or jacket is recommended.

Halter-tops and shorts are frowned upon in most places except around sport facilities or on the beach. Proper decorum should especially be observed when visiting places or worship. Indonesians are very polite people. Handshaking is customary both for men and women on introduction and greeting, and smiling is a national characteristic.

The use of the left hand to give or receive is taboo, also crooking your finger to call someone is considered impolite. Pork is forbidden for the Muslim population and beef for the Balinese Hindus but they are available at many restaurants and markets.
