Christmas in Bali 

The Australian warns that tourists heading to Bali for Christmas will find its a dry Christmas. According to Stephen Fitzpatrick, their Jakarta correspondent, booze and gourmet staples are now almost completely unavailable on the Indonesian island, following a crackdown by customs on imported food and drink.

But hey, its not strictly true, locally produced drinks, like arak and brem (rice wine), and Bali beers (Bali Hai and Bintang) are readily available. Bintang, according to TheBackpacker.net gives you a 100% guaranteed headache!

Besides, consuming the local produce is right in line with the eco-travel movement, so you can spend Christmas in Bali, support the local economy with a little over-indulgence and claim that you are participating in responsible travel.
