A Side Note

General DO’s: 

  • Bring your student card, travel documents (flight tickets, passport, visas, itinerary, invitation letter) and copies of all important documents 
  • Bring your own universal travel adapter or travel adapter for Indonesia for your laptop and cellphone chargers
  • Bring your own health supplies (medication, hygiene supplies, vitamins) and copies of prescription if needed
  • Prepare your own umbrella and sun hat as we might have unpredictable rains and sunny days.
  • Pack necessary clothing and essential toiletries
  • The temperature in September is relatively warm (24˚C to 32˚C). Please refer to the following rules of dressing:
  • In classrooms the participants are allowed to wear smart-casual clothing which includes sleeved shirts, collared t-shirts, trousers, nice jeans (no holey jeans), skirts, and casual shoes
  • Please wear presentable clothes for attending the industry visits and B2P2TOOT (center for research and development of medicinal plants and traditional medicine)
  • Please do not wear revealing clothing (anything too short or above the knee, too low cut, too tight), sheer fabrics, t-shirt with inappropriate graphic image/words, sleeveless shirts, short pants, and flip-flops in classrooms and offices

 

General DON’Ts:

  • Do not display any affection publicly.
  • Do not hesitate to reject the merchants/ taxi drivers/ “becak” (pedicab) drivers trying to offer things to you; politely say “tidak” (no). If you want to buy things in traditional market or attraction sites, you can bargain to a half of the offered price.
  • Do not give money to beggars or homeless begging in public. The Indonesian government attempts to introduce a national ban on organized begging and those deemed to help them in any way.
  • Do not act impolite in sacred places.
  • Do not get offended when people ask you a personal question. It’s just the way they show friendliness and you don’t have to answer it.
  • Do not be angry if someone of the same sex holds your hands or walks arm to arm. It’s the Indonesian way of showing a friendly relationship.
