Bali airport taxis: A new screw up

Published by under Transport

My 100,000 rupiah saviour approached. Note the tourists walking back into the terminal behind him.

Late last night I arrived in Bali’s new airport, cleared immigration and customs and headed out to get a taxi home from the official taxi kiosk. I’ve written about Bali’s airport taxis on a number of occasions, primarily advising of the set fares and updating it when the fares went up after the rise in … read the full post

Driving around Bali: Munduk to the Organic Farm

Oh so pretty.

You could easily give Munduk a day or three and spend your time visiting nearby waterfalls, taking ricefield walks or just enjoying the view, but eventually you’ll need to move on and while there are a number of options from Munduk, we’re going to continue our drive around Bali heading east through a caldera and … read the full post

Driving around Bali: Medewi to Munduk

Just another day in Munduk.

You must be thinking this is the slowest drive of all time around Bali, but we’re getting there! From Medewi you have two options — continue east along the coast to Balian and beyond or veer inland. We’re going to opt for the latter and take a left turn at the main junction over the … read the full post

Driving around Bali: Pemuteran to Medewi

Published by under Driving around Bali

Just another slice of rural scenery.

The far western tip of Bali offers a startling change in experiences as you transition from the less-trafficked north coast to the more heavily (and truck favoured) south. Along the way you get to soak up some great forest, excellent views of Java and perhaps a couple of Christian outposts before blasting along the south … read the full post

Bali to Java by bus

Published by under Java,Transport

Bali is the jewel in the crown of Indonesian tourism, attracting more and more visitors every year; for some, the number of fellow tourists is just too high and there is a strong desire to high-tail it right out of there. That’s where Bali’s western neighbour comes into the picture: Java, a long slender island … read the full post

Which is the best boat service from Bali to Nusa Lembongan?

Nusa Lembongan is a beautiful little patch of an island just off the east coast of southern Bali. It’s famous for its surfing, sunsets and snorkelling, and is growing in popularity among those looking for a less crowded, unadulterated flavour of Bali. But the big question: how to get there? It’s an island, there’s no … read the full post

Updated December 2013: Sample Bali taxi fares

Published by under Transport

Updated with the new fareboard from Bali’s new airport terminal. Note there has been a significant increase in rates primarily due to an increase in petrol costs. After we did our initial post regarding taxis fares from Bali airport, we’ve had many more inquiries about fares for specific routes. So, keeping that in mind, here … read the full post

Driving around Bali: Lovina to Pemuteran

From Lovina it’s an easy ride along the northwest coast of Bali to reach the diving and snorkelling beachside hideaway of Pemuteran. The road skirts the coastline for much of the way and aside from the rising hills to the south it’s really a bit of an uneventful ride, with junction town Seririt being the … read the full post

Driving around Bali: Amed to Lovina

You must have been thinking we were never going to get out of Amed, huh?! Compared to the windy coastal route from Candi Dasa to Amed the road onwards to Lovina is a breeze. It’s a long drive, but plain sailing with barely a hill along the way. That’s not to say it isn’t scenic, … read the full post

Driving around Bali: Candi Dasa to Amed

For those doing a quick loop of Bali, from Candi Dasa the next logical stop is Amed, a beachside series of bays about an hour and a half north of Candi Dasa. It’s known for its black sand beaches, off-the-beach snorkelling and volcano vistas — it forms one of those all round “pleasurable place to … read the full post
