Has anyone visited Bali, Indonesia or Cambodia?

Postby zboy1 » April 21st, 2012, 6:12 am

I'm curious because I've seen several videos of Cambodia and Bali on Youtube--and they look like pretty awesome places to visit. I know there's lots of foreigners living in Bali, Indonesia--as it's a popular place for single females and retirees. As for Cambodia, it looks to be a fascinating country to be in. Anyone on HA been to any of these places?

My sister went to Bali on honeymoon and she said the local women were the most beautiful she'd ever seen.

I think Australians would ruin the place for me though.

I have the chance of going there for a wedding later in the year, so I'll report back if I actually go.

Yeah, I would be interested in your observations about the place in the future, Xiongmao! And you're right about Australians ruining Bali--too many of them causing problems over there--from what I've been told by people who've visited the place.

If you live in Indonesia your going to be limited to dating foreign women only. Dating local women is not going to go over very well in a muslim country. However, local men can bang foreign women without any legal repercussions.

The problem with Bali is that it's now filled with Westerners, and in particular Australians. I'm sure if many of you want to move out of Western countries, you don't want to end up in a place where you're still surrounded by westerners and similar social atmospheres with what you get back home.

Of course one might argue that westerners who move to Asia are generally a better group than those back home but Bali still seems to attract many of the loud, obnoxious, phony types who go to 'exotic' places with a superiority complex.

Basically Bali is full of Aussie woman who have the attitude "I'm not in Australia so I'll act like a slutty skank, what I do in Bali, stays in Bali" so it's similar to how American women might act like in popular resort cities in Mexico like Cancun or Puerto Vierta, basically they sit on the beach or by the pool all day then they go out at night to the bars or discos and get wasted, waiting to get picked up and pretend they were too drunk to remember anything. So you can probably hook up with a Aussie girl in Bali if you aren't too picky and can get past cock blockers, your good to go!

I chatted to an Indonesian girl online for a while. She was exotically beautiful but sadly her time in China seemed to have turned her into a crazy dragon lady.

Indonesia is the 4th largest country in the world (in terms of population) so it's very undiscovered as far as Asian brides go.

I prefer Guangzhou to Bali. No tourists, no Aussies, the place is great!

Indonesia is definitely underrated when it comes to finding a bride but it's also chock full of poverty. I think it also has a bad rap because it swings two extremes. Bali is a free for all tourist type city but there's also been highly publicized bouts of extremism in that country. I think most people just have it off the radar because islam is the principle religion there and they assume that marrying into a family like that would be complicated. The population is large enough that you'll find plenty of secular or superficial followers of the religion itself to date.
