Explains how these scummy nightclubs can do whatever they want in Seminyak. No rules regarding noise regulations, no covid regulations or other laws apply to them. Lock up these criminals already.

@Exp, I have moved 4 times due to noise from nightclubs and mosques. There is zero respect for neighbors well being and quiet living.

Not only Seminyak.

A nightclub started to operate in residential area 70m away from my villa in Sanur; trance music until 5am or later in the morning every day. Impossible to sleep and many unhappy neighbours. I complained via all possible ways to Lurah, Satpol PP Denpasar, Satpol PP Bali, Dinas Kesehatan Bali, etc. No improvements, so I gave up and moved on.

There is little respect for foreigner willing to invest / spending their cash here. This is why committing to long term rental or buying a villa is risky as formal laws and regulations often are superseded by social norms and hierarchy.

@Nico Steeman, You can still catch and spread covid after vaccination. Having a cotton swab is a small price to pay to keep Balinese people safe.
