What to take care of in Bali? - Don’t Touch People's Heads!
The soul is supposed to reside in one’s head, making it off limits for people to touch. Not even children (Balinese children, that is) should be touched on their heads, so no noogies.
As “Western” and modern as much of Balipresents itself, the native culture of Bali provides a firm and tangible bedrock on which Balinese behavior and relationships are built. So if you’re going to visit Bali with a mind to visiting the island's temples and meeting the local people, you’ll need to mind your manners to stay on good terms with the locals.
