Walking in Bali The lack of sidewalks, pedestrian crossings traffic lights and the lack of clear traffic rules in general will be the first thing that strikes any visitor who hasn't experienced the traffic in Indonesia. We had confidently decided that we will be walking for most of our stay in Seminyak but we didn't realise that being a pedestrian in Seminyak will be such a thrilling experience. At fist I find the countless scooters confidently zigzagging between cars, hurriedly swooshing past me and the honking taxis terrifying. I soon find out that strings of pedestrians, countless scooters and honking taxis all find a way to coexist in harmony on the narrow roads of Seminyak. I quickly go into the zen mode all local drivers seem to be in. The honking is not impatient or aggressive, it is a friendly greeting. Like a larger benevolent animal signalling that it acknowledges your presence and promising to do its best not to harm you.
