Hey guys.

Will be hitting Bali on the 1st May for a week.

Is there any tips you have on what to see in this time, what to avoid or look out for...

Much appreciated!

Peace

What to avoid. Pick pockets and being short changed, touts trying to sell you stuff you don't want on the beaches and mosquitoes that come out about sunset.

Tours are done with factory like regularity but are OK for all that.

Ubud is worth a few days, and Lovina is a nice beach town to chill out in. The snorkeling is good off the coast in that area too and trips can be easily arranged from Lovina town.

there arent alot any crime in bali especially pick pocket...deference from other island/region in indonesia like java island...drunk dude maybe...but crime i believed not very high compare to another region in indonesia...(im comparing with another city).about touts that try sell stuff on the beach,well i believed that happen MOSTLY in travel destination around the globe not all of them but mostly on third world country...just say it politely no and they will understand and wont disturb you...but not in java island/region ,thing a bit deferent when you go outside bali island

Most Balinese are very nice, there are just few opportunists that you can possibly encounter along the way. You can worry more about the tons of motorbikes and scooters. Even kids ride scooters so watch out. Ubud and Canggu is my sanctuary, I prefer staying there if I want to relax. But if you prefer an awesome nightlife and interested to shop and try the best restaurants in the island, then Seminyak is the place.
