Business Hours

Bali’s famous festivals and temple ceremonies can wreak havoc on retail and banking hours. Though most shops in the major tourist areas are open from 10 am till 8 p.m., six days a week (seven in shopping centers and hotels) - sometimes a shop is closed for no apparent reason BUT there is a reason, the shopkeeper has a ceremony to attend. Restaurants start serving from 7 a.m. or so until 11.00pm or midnight.

Government offices and banks operate from 8 a.m. till 3 p.m., Monday to Thursday, and 8 a.m. till 12 p.m. on Fridays. That said though, Government offices and banks are closed on public holidays and sometimes the public holiday is 'extended' to allow for a long weekend. i.e. if a public holiday falls on a Thursday, often government offices and banks will be closed Thursday-Sunday. These are known as 'shared holidays'. Also at Christmas and New Year, banks may be closed for up to 10 days depending on the actual holiday days.

As well Bali celebrates several holidays in addition to those mandated by the Federal Government. Some of these (i.e. 
Galungan) are bank holidays on Bali but nowhere else in Indonesia. For more information see Bali Holidays.
