one of the places that I go yesterday initially only wanted to take pictures in the legian monument but along the way in the cafe / bar full of white there were those who drink, dance,kissing between them. Lol
Those videos/parties that you went to..that is KUTA. Those are about 95% Australians. Remember the Bali Bombings, those were almost all Australians that died. Sure, you have others around too, but the mass majority are Australians.

I've also been in those bars as well, and they are mostly Australians of around 18-25 years old....they treat Bali like 'Spring Break' or 'Get really drunk and do crazy stuff' mentality. It's really not fun, unless you are of around the same mindset and age range.

People who are older than 25 search out the more quiet beach bars/restaurants in Seminyak or Legian or elsewhere on the Island.

Singaraja was the biggest city up there. Not that fun to walk around. Broken sidewalks everywhere, not much to walk around and see. A very functional type of place with very little to offer.

That being said, I'd like to explore more of all of the Island of Bali.
I never knew they were Australian or not really surprised to see them all drinkers, drunk while at a bar or cafe and as if Bali was theirs and they were not polite to the local culture even kissing in public ... even when New Year's yesterday my frends of invited me hang out to a 3rd floored building in other place in kuta and our goal is just to observe how the nightlife in Kuta was more surprised to me on floors 1, 2, 3 crowded with white ( man and womens ) their party , drunk and not care with each other .this situation is very different from jakarta

Yeah, that is 18-year-old Bogan/Aussie behavior, in a nutshell. I've been to Kuta a few times, and always see drunk Aussies who lose their shirts, looking for a fight, and stumbling around incoherent to where they are at.

There are many bules (white people) who have no interest in setting foot in Bali/Kuta after seeing the young Aussie/Bogan behavior...PLUS the behavior of the touts/taxis/etc that hound and harass foreigners trying to get them to buy souvineers while on the beach or just walking down the streets.

Bali is a fantastic place to visually see...not a great place to experience because of having to deal with Bogan (aussie slang for 'redneck') behavior or dealing with local touts.

seeing this video they look wild and crazy, indeed most aussie and I know many foreigners (bule/white) hate and don't want to join them in Bali.
white bogans / aussie came to Bali making the place like theirs and not polite with local culture. Bali is interesting for bogans because of the very free nightlife they can do whatever they want like drink, get drunk, fight etc.

They do the same in Australia (same behavior), but bars/nightlife close much earlier, and costs about 5 times the price.

all that you write is true. and they are trash rude in other people's countries and assume that Bali is theirs and don't care about others , btw I once read Australia was founded by prisoners sent from england, maybe most of the aussie now is from the offspring
