Basic Language in Bali

Indonesians and Balinese are some of the friendliest people you’ll meet. Whilst there’s no need to have a total understanding of their language, some basic phrases will allow you to communicate even better.

The Balinese appreciate you learning their language (either Balinese or Bahasa Indonesian) and love to help you practice your skill.

Bahasa Balinese is full of different dialects and harder to understand, thus Indonesian is spoken more commonly and recommended as a good start. Enjoy learning the language.
