    Go directly to Jail.

    Do not pass 'Go'.

    Do not collect £200.

    Were there any mitigating circumstances? Illness, mental health issues? Stress?

    Or just an objectionable little person suffering from an acute case of entitlement?

    Poor manners and lack of respect often goes unchallenged here in the UK..

    It must come as an awful shock when these yobs realise they cannot behave like spoilt little brats in other peoples' countries.

    Never mind.

    Brits abroad, eh. Gotta love 'em.

    Reminds me of every gobby Y10 girl I met. Original offence? Negligible. Kick-off mouth-run? FTE.

    Never understood why people go to BALI

    If you want beaches there are lots of better ones elsewhere

    It's expensive and dangerous

    and there are lots of t***s about like the guy above.

    Been once - never again

    Proves my point.

    Bali is like Goa - very overrated.

    I never found that. Perhaps being able to speak Bahasa Indonesia helped.

    That is where she went wrong, she slapped that man in the wrong language.

    I liked the Gili islands, although I imagine they're more like Bali now than an RM Ballentyne novel.

    Lots of places out that way have changed a lot in the last 15 years. Not always for the better.

    Flipping tourists, always spoiling the places I like to visit.

    I always found politeness and courtesy worked wonders at imigrasi...

    They'd return your passport to Jaksa with the visas 24 hours later, while you waited with a beer.

    The old KKN ;)

    When I was growing up in Scotland, pretty much every adult would slap any kid who wasn't 'respectful' enough. And if he went home and told Ma and Pa, they'd slap him too. Not joking.

    Although Ms Auj-e Taqaddas was actually born and brought up in Pakistan, not the UK. Sounds like borderline mental health issues, or at least an exaggerated view of her own importance. She's not unintelligent. She worked as a radiographer for the Royal Marsden Hospital - until she fell out with them over a book about her work that she insisted on publishing without their permission.

    Her father is a retired doctor who is said to be deeply ashamed of her behaviour. Who wouldn't be? :(

    Gili Meno was a wonderful relaxed place, I spent two weeks there when I was a young man back in the early 1990s. Nothing going on after sunset as there was no mains electricity. Gili Trawangan across the water looked more lively after dark, but we never went there.

    I was there in the 2000's and was similar to what you describe. Maybe it hasn't changed (you can hope).
