before and after we checked in our baggage in Denpasar Airport, we went through multiple unreasonable security and ticket checks, which seemed very unnecessary (more than the usual) and unorganized. But what puzzled us the most is that after we checked in our luggage and had our tickets we suddenly had to pay an airport tax. WTF?? Is that a normal scam there or did we fall for something? We had to pay in cash at a point where one would usually have gotten rid of the last cash before leaving a country for good.
Now I realy hate that airport.
The Visa at entry is a similar scam, but at least you know about it in advance.
