BALI has long been a hedonistic paradise for Aussies. But sweeping law changes in Indonesia could have extreme consequences for tourists. Bali could become a worrying place for Australian tourists.
The Balinese are Hindu, unlike the rest of Indonesia, which is predominately Muslim. In Bali you will find a relatively rich gay scene although not one that is openly flaunted. While homosexuality is accepted, any public display of romance, whether straight or gay, is frowned upon.
My partner and I have paid a deposit for accommodation and paid for our plane fares. If criminalization of Homosexuals is put in law like its expected to be this month. I am very concerned about going to Bali.
Me and my partner are going to Bali in for a 2-week romantic holiday. I know that Bali is much more accepting than the rest of Indonesia and they are very respectful towards tourists in general. I suppose my question is more about PDA While we're not planning to do anything inappropriate in public lolshould we be wary of things like holding hands and kiss on the cheek?
The bar crawl is pretty fun thing to do while in Bali. Kind of quite at the beginning of the night but when visiting the famous Seminyak gay bars it's getting wilder. Me and my boyfriend enjoyed the get-to-know-each-other hour or two in the beach
The area is filled with luxury beach resorts, chic restaurants and trendy bars. The handful of bars are located next door to each other making the area perfect for bar hopping. As you travel between the bars expect drag shows, international pop, inside smoking and plenty of Indonesian working men.
The strong Hindu influence and large international tourism community has made it more relaxed and accepting than other parts of Indonesia. We were ready to let our hair down…a visit to Bali was calling us. Unlike on Airbnb, you know your host is gay, avoiding any nasty surprises when you check in.
For visitors, it can seem like a magical world unto its own—David Bowie requested that his ashes be scattered there. So when pictures of what appeared to be a same-sex marriage on the island spread on Facebook and then into the news last September, it caused an uproar. They married legally in the US, to which they soon returned. The incident is just one example of the increasingly harsh anti-gay sentiment that is rising throughout Indonesia.

We can comfortably say that visiting this island is something that every gay traveler should include in his bucket list. If you are visiting Bali for adventure, we would recommend you stay in a hotel in Ubud. On the other hand, if you would like to explore Bali gay nightlife, there is nowhere else to go than the super friendly and vivid Seminyak.
