    by Sabanian Written Aug 25, 2002

    If you make a walk on the seashore mind, that sometimes needles / syringes are washed ashore, fully equipped! Attention, esp. if you are travelling with children!

    Avoid to eat steaks, we have heard from people, who suffered a long time and had to receive medical attention.

    A few times in the evening we bought some of these little spits with roasted meat in passing sold from little hand-barrows and never had problems.

    Avoid the Chaweng Beach if you can. The hotels there are maybe a little bit more elegant but the prizes are in no way inferior to this and as well Chaweng is extremely noisy during the evening hours.

    health..water. make sure you say no ice when you order a lassi or you will get local water no matter how careful you've been. eat only what you can peel,unfortunately, no salads except maybe in the most expensive hotels (even then?)

    Do not hire a motorcycle or car (without a driver)! The traffic situation on Bali is very dangerous for the tourist. We saw a couple of accidents on our way through Bali. Don´t think the there will be less traffic on the won´t

    Tap water throughout Asia

    by keeweechic Written Aug 24, 2002

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tap water throughout Asia is mostly questionable (Singapore is ok). Beware also of brushing your teeth with local water and any vegetables or fruit without peelable skins washed in water. Bottled water is widely available. It is suggested you drink at least six glasses of water a day in a tropical climate.

    Landmines in Cambodia

    by keeweechic Written Jun 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Be careful venturing out in the countryside by yourself. Stay to tracks recommended. Landmines are still a very big concern in Cambodia. You see many amputees - young and old alike in the country.
