First things first; Bali girls tend to belong to the Hindu faith rather than the Islamic faith which dominates other areas of Indonesia. That doesn’t change everything, there are still plenty of cultural aspects that remain the same but the big thing is that getting into a serious long-term relationship with a Hindu girl will likely be a little easier, and require less adoption of her religion and beliefs were you to marry… as well as avoiding dowry payments!
The local girls on the country's main party island have lost none of their traditional charm either; they remain ultra-sweet and feminine and quite receptive to western men with romance on their minds. Bali girls have got a reputation for being working-girls but it is a bit unfair, especially compared to Thai bar girls. There are plenty of girls that do work as prostitutes, and they tend to be Indonesian too, rather than being the usual imports from Thailand, Vietnam and the Philippines, but the majority of girls are just regular women.
That’s not to say that Bali girls won’t be delighted to accept some financial assistance from you the morning after a romantic get-together! The shame that westerners might feel for taking hand-outs in these circumstances is purely a western emotion and doesn’t apply to any Asian country that I’m aware of. Any girl that comes from a poor background will gratefully accept financial assistance from a man that she’ll likely assume is far wealthier than herself, but that doesn’t make her a prostitute.
I’ve written on my main page about Indonesian women that this part of South East Asia is more of a mystery to most western men, but that might not be the case for Australian men. Bali in particular is a very popular holiday destination for Australians and not just for men, there are lots of Australian girls partying in the bars and clubs too. A big part of the one-night-stand scene occurs between westerners rather than between western men and local Bali girls, so there are a few options here that you don’t often find in other nightlife focused areas of Asia.
One thing to note about the nightlife is that it doesn’t get going until late on. If you go out drinking at 8pm you won’t see too many other people around as it doesn’t really get busy until after midnight. Kuta is the busiest area for bars and clubs, as well as P4P options with freelance working girls. All night moon-parties on the beach are also quite frequent events and the area in general appeals to the younger visitors and backpackers looking for the cheapest prices. Bali does have other options for a bit more refinery if you prefer that sort of thing; Seminyak is the place to be for that.
Prostitution is illegal in Indonesia, just as it is with most Southeast Asian countries, and it is largely ignored just as it is with most Southeast Asian countries. You’ll notice that massage shops are popular and dotted around the island but, unlike Pattaya and similar Thailand tourist hot-spots, the majority of Bali massage girls will not offer the extra services that Thai girls are famous for. That’s not to say that such things don’t exist, they do, but you’ll probably need a taxi driver to take you to one of the backstreet happy-ending parlours.
The cheapest P4P option is to focus on freelancers; any local lady in a tourist venue that is dressed up is going to be very approachable, so I’d go for that option first if you are on a budget. You’ll have to do some haggling over price though, otherwise you’ll end up over-paying (whilst I’m on that subject, get used to haggling over prices for most things, it’s the Bali way). It’s a good idea to avoid drinking too much or you might risk waking up the next day with all your valuables missing, I’d recommend that you stick to short-term relationships if it’s a freelance working-girl that you are entertaining i.e. avoid letting her sleepover, so as to protect your belongings.
The online scene is a better romantic option than the P4P scene in Bali; if it’s hookers that you want then I’d advise heading somewhere else for your holidays e.g. Thailand, Philippines or Cambodia. The online girls in Bali are sweet, and most are keen to meet up with western men.
There is a fairly well developed scene for foreign ladies to meet up with Balinese men for some naughty fun, but for the ladies reading this please be aware that the same dangers apply that gentlemen face when getting a little too attached to their Asian bar-girl partners i.e. it’s fantasy land and romantic attachment will lead to heartbreak, humiliation and financial ruin.
That said, I see no reason why foreign ladies shouldn’t be allowed to enjoy their dalliances with Balinese men so long as they can keep their bullshit antennae intact. Requests for funds will surely follow at some point if a relationship is allowed to go too far, so keep that in mind.
On my main page about Indonesian women I did state that living cost in Bali are very cheap; that’s true but I was referring to ‘living’ costs. The nightlife and tourist stuff is, unfortunately, not so cheap. The usual problem with alcohol prices is ever present in a Muslim country (even though Bali is predominantly Hindu), but they are particularly high in the tourist parts of the island. While it is possible to find places where you can drink local ‘Bintang’ beer for well below $2, the prices for imported beers in the mega-clubs and trendy bars are much higher, with cocktails at $10 or more, and it is these venues that you are more likely to meet Bali girls for romantic P4P adventures (ladies on the other hand usually find their companions on the beach), so keep an eye on costs.
