Southeast Asia is an extremely popular travel destination for Western tourists from throughout the world. Bali is one of the most popular party and nightlife destinations in all of Asia. Some people are travelling on a budget, and use things like backpackers hostel, while others choose to stay in fancier Bali villas. However, there is one common theme among a surprisingly large percentage of visitors – they are visiting Bali to make use of the blossoming sex industry.
Although you may not have realised it, prostitution is becoming a big business in Bali. Almost every part of the island has its ‘dark areas’, where you can find almost anything that you want. Although you should stay away from anything that is strictly illegal – like illicit drugs or underage women – prostitution is generally accepted.
Note That Prostitution Is Generally Illegal
Although the authorities generally turn a blind eye to tourists paying for sex, prostitution is technically illegal throughout Indonesia. However, this doesn’t stop many people, including locals, paying for sex regularly.
Be Aware Of What’s Happening
Although some people go to Bali looking for a fun, sexy time, a lot more get drawn in without meaning to. This can lead to problems if you’re not careful. Make sure that you’re always aware of what’s happening around you, and what you’re getting yourself into.
