ANY TIPS?

USEFUL TIPS:
1. Bring your own straw if you don’t like plastic straw.
2. Bring your own spoon to eat the Coconut meat.

*) The seller don’t have Bamboo straw or stainless straw. They just have a plastic straw. Better you bring your own straw to enjoy the Coconut water.

**) If you didn’t bring your own spoon, the seller will cut the Coconut skin to be your spoon.

There are so many factors why the tropical fruits become expensive or cheaper in Bali. Some of them are: Touristic area, Distance from the source (plantation), Harvest time (fruit season), Hindus Special Day (Kuningan, Galungan, Pagerwesi and Nyepi Day), Anomalic weather, Pest attack, Quality (size and taste), etc. Thus, the price may getting higher or lower depend on those factor above.
