If you go to visit a country, it would be even more fun if you can speak the local language. You do not need to be fluent, but the local people are very happy if you greet and talk to them even if you only know a little of their language. If you go to Bali, I suggest to remember words and simple sentences that are listed below:

c. Thank you : Suksma (Matur Suksma)
d. Excuse me! : Sugra nggih!
e. My name is John : Wastan tiang John
f. How are you? : Punapi gatra? Or Kenken kabare?
g. I am fine : Tiang becik-becik
h. Good Bye : Pamit Nggih
