VIDEO: Bali Nightlife - Surviving Kuta's Party Paradise
If you are headed to Bali, Indonesia, there is every chance you will end up in the nightlife mecca of Kuta - a no-holds-barred party strip filled with cheap drinks, pounding clubs and endless mayhem at practically every corner.
For some, the temptation to push it to excess can lead to some fairly hefty consequences, including drunken motorbike injuries, violence, inebriation and lengthy Indonesian jail sentences for drug use and possession. Not the best end to what should be a fun-filled island adventure - but an end that many uncautious travellers face nonetheless.
Join Jesse Perez from the World Nomads Travel Safety Hub for a trip into the belly of the Bali beast, to discover a few of the nasty pitfalls you might encounter - and how to come home with (some of) your memories intact!
