What is “Bali Belly”?
Travellers to Bali can be affected by what is known as ‘Bali Belly’; an upset stomach or travellers’ diarrhoea, caused by a change in diet and lifestyle. It is treatable and will usually clear itself up sometimes within 24 hours, other times is may take a couple of days or even up to a week.
Moderating the changes you make to your diet and lifestyle, particularly in the first few days will help to minimize your risk of contracting Bali Belly. Personal hygiene is also an important factor and hand washing should be done thoroughly, particularly after going to the washroom, handling money and before you eat.
Should you get Bali Belly, you can treat the condition with anti~diarrhoea medications such as Imodium and activated charcoal tablets which are available from most supermarkets.
Do I need vaccinations?
Vaccinations are not mandatory, but some students do opt to have the following vaccinations a minimum of 6 weeks before the training. It is your choice and we have not experienced any issues with contamination in the past. It is best to speak to your doctor about what is best for you.
Will I need an electrical adaptor?
If you are uncertain, please check with this global listing.
Is there an option to stay on-site or arrive earlier to the venue?
Unfortunately, no. This venue has turn-around days for cleaning between groups.
Why is my receipt in Canadian Dollars and not US Dollars?
All Program Fees are QUOTED in USD. The Canadian Dollar equivalent of the USD amount quoted is processed on your Credit Card.
On your email receipt you will see exactly what the USD amount is and what the actual Canadian amount processed was.
Why do we do this? This venue charges us in USD, and by quoting USD for our Program Fees, it ensures that the correct cost is applied for each program. The conversion should not affect you, as the end result will be the same. You will simply see it processed as Canadian Dollars for the equivalent amount of the USD Charge.
