Travel Tips

You’ll save money, your experience will be less structured, and your mobility increased if you take on the island independently. An organized tour, however, enables you to quickly see what Bali has to offer. Then you may decide to go back and experience in depth what you enjoyed most.

Driving your rental car is the fastest and most convenient transport on Bali. This option also allows for the most freedom; you establish your own itinerary and decide how much time to spend at each site. Though obviously safer than motorcycles, cars must be driven with great caution. If you collide with a horse cart, with the help of the police you’ll have to negotiate a settlement with the owner more or less on the spot. Because the traffic is fast, erratic, and left-hand drive, driving is hair-raising unless you come from a left-hand drive country already.

The best times of the day to travel are in the very early mornings and late afternoons when it’s cooler and when the widest variety of transport is available, leaving the middle of the day free to rest and eat.

Light, airy, casual clothes are the most practical and you’ll find natural fibers like cotton or linen are the most comfortable in Bali’s often humid conditions. Waist sashes should be worn when visiting temples.

Bali has a sophisticated financial infrastructure to accommodate you. Most stores will accept most foreign currencies without hesitation. The local banks in Bali can help you transfer money easily from and to most countries, as well as exchanging your money into Rupiahs.

Bargaining is a long-established custom in Indonesia, so always be ready to bargain-even for drugstore medicine, hospitalization, entrance charges to small museums or temple sites (unless fees are posted).
