Uluwatu Tourist Traps

  • balisunshine's Profile Photo

    by balisunshine Written Apr 13, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On our first visit to Dreamland Beach,
    at what is known as the mafia stop,
    they tried to charge us 10,000 Rp each person
    instead of the 5,000Rp per person fee which,
    is written on the so-called Entry Ticket.

    Luckily, I looked at it before paying.

    On our second visit,
    we were prepared,
    but again they tried to charge us more….

    So have money in hand,
    and don’t get ripped off!
