A drunken, crazy night in Kuta until sunrise is some people’s idea of a great way to spend their time in Bali. Others though couldn’t think of a worse place to be, especially at night while trying to enjoy the serenity that Bali offers while on holiday.
Most can agree though that they are glad the mayhem and nightclubs are centralized in one spot in Kuta, to contain the madness. Everyone except the actual residents of Kuta, the Balinese.
Now that you have found your dream house it is time to start making things feel like home. Even though you may be thousands of miles away from what you really consider to be home, the Balinese will generally do a good job at making you feel accepted in your new house and neighborhood.
One of the worst things that you could do if you plan on staying in an area for an extended period of time is to not get acquainted with your neighbors. In many western countries your neighbors are simply the people that live next door to you that wave to once in a while entering or leaving your house. In Bali there is a much stronger sense of community and that all works together to keep things running smoothly and keeping the neighborhood safe.
