Getting around

Bemos travel up and down Jalan Danau Tamblingan all day long and you'll regularly be beeped at. The process for using the bemo is fairly simple. Stand on the side of the road and flag the bemo down and do not negotiate price as this will alert the driver to potential naivety. The fare to and from anywhere along Jalan Danau Tamblingan is 3,000 rupiah and you simply hand this correct change to the driver when you decide to hop off. There may be the odd huff and puff as he realises he's not able to rip you off, but this is par for the course.

Bemos head to the inconvenient Terminal Kereneng in Denpasar regularly throughout the day from just outside the parking ticket toll point on Jalan Hang Tuah and sometimes after heading north along Jalan Danau Tamblingan. The cost is 5,000 rupiah and a bemo from that terminal to another terminal will be required if you need to travel onwards from Denpasar.
