CultureShock! Bali is an indispensable guide for anyone planning a stay on the “Island of the Gods”. Let Paul Winslow, with his invaluable Bali insider knowledge and non-native perspective, take you through the process of settling in, whether for short or longer stays. Is your ideal home in the forested mountainous areas of Ubud or near the relaxing beaches of Kuta and Seminyak? As a guest in Bali, should you embrace your host or shake his hand? Is it rude to be late or expected to be early for a party? And what about meeting the Indonesians and making friends? If you are lucky enough to find yourself on this lively and magical island, get the most of out of your stay with this essential and fun-to-read guide!

Paul Winslow
Paul Winslow is a travel junkie who left the UK to go travelling at the end of 2009 and never made it back. After a year on the road he settled in Melbourne for over three years before washing up on the shores of Bali in 2014. He edits a digital guide to the island—an excuse to stay at the best hotels, eat at the best restaurants and get pampered at the best spas. He also freelances as a journalist and communications specialist. He has an unhealthy love of cricket and combines that passion with travel to follow the England cricket team around the world, an addiction that led to the publication of his first book, Going Barmy (2012). Paul lives alone in Bali if you discount the mosquitoes that keep him company even when not invited.
