The Balinese have a reputation as extremely honest people. Unfortunately,
not everyone on Bali is Balinese and there has been an increase
in petty crimes - especially in areas with the most tourists. Nonetheless
Bali is still far, far safer than most large cities in this
Pickpockets, car break ins and drive by bag snatching seem to be
the most common complaints. To reduce your risk, use plain common
sense and take the same basic precautions you would if you were
visiting any big city i.e. keep a tight grip on your purse or camera,
Never leave any bags (whether valuable or not) in your car, use
the hotel safety deposit box, dont go down dark deserted gangs
(alleys) and dont count money in the open. Not so hard...
On the flip side don't even think of committing a crime in Indonesia.
You are a long way from home with far fewer rights than you think.
Behave yourself and be a gracious guest.
