Ever travelled to Bali and found accessing fairly priced and reliable transport an issue?
You may want to consider the use of smartphone apps like Uber, GoJek (GoCar) or even My Bluebird Taxi that can take the language issues out of booking transport and save you enough money for use on more enjoyable outlets.
My experience was that using Uber saved me between 200,000 Rp and 300,000 Rp over 2 return trips from Kuta to Sanur.
Nyepi day, the Balinese ‘Day of Silence’ is well worth making an effort to see. The colour, chaos and auditory assault of the Gamelan are very memorable. This is an opportunity to see local religious celebrations conducted right in the heart of ‘tourist land’.
Being unable to leave your hotel for 24 hours can be a challenge for some – but – with some minimal preparations and the right attitude, it can be a real pleasure.
The short boat ride to Wat Tilok Aram on Phayao Lake was probably the best value and most enjoyable trip I’ve ever done in my 40+ trips to Thailand over 30 years. The boat ride was just the right length, the Temple area quiet enough and interesting enough and the focus on safety very reassuring.
The Glory Express boat company provide a fast boat transport service between Sanur and Nusa Lembongan.
If you enjoy being herded like cattle, watching your bags being treated with casual indifference, having your shoes/sandals upended into the sand and being required to wade knee deep in water to board and disembark from the boat – this service is for you!
