Travelling to Bali in Sept with our 2 kids aged 10 and 12 years. We are staying at Westin and Intercontinental resorts as they have plenty of activities to keep the kids amused and so we can get some much needed peace and a break.
But we want to venture out to eat and experience some real Balinese restaurants etc.
I'd like to avoid (if possible) illness ruining our trip. I mean, getting sick due to the food. I might seem overly paranoid about it but we have holidayed in Phuket 4 times in past 6 years and each time at least 2 of us get sick. We try to take as much care as possible and never drink the water or use ice. Opting mainly for cooked vegetables.
In reviewing some of the restaurant reviews, there are many pics of raw salads on plates and delicious looking drinks with ice. We love to eat lots of fruit and vegetables.
But is it safe in Bali? What precautions should we take. Anything that is a 'must avoid' or a 'must do'.
Really appreciate your advice so that hopefully we can eat some great food and retain it. Apologies this is not the most pleasant question. I have read a lot of posts and comments and there are some very seasoned Bali travellers commenting. It is sooooo helpful. Hoping you may be able to steer us right.
