Scuba2013's City Tips

  • Location - Depends on what you would like to do on holiday. Party / lively - Kuta, Legian, Tuban, Seminyak are really all just the same, full of bars, nightclubs etc. Seminyak is said to be more upmarket but its not really, not anymore. More Relaxing but still bars and nightlife is - Sanur, Nusa Dua, and Jimbaran Bay. Total relaxation - Ubud, Amed, Candidasa are great favorites of mine, they are a lot more chilled with nice bars and local musicians, beautiful beaches (except Ubud) cheap accommodation, great food, a lot less tourists, genuine locals from local villages.. Better access to the volcanoes, temples, rice fields etc. The type of people that visit these areas are more cultured and want to experience the real Bali.
  • Accommodation - This is just pot luck I am afraid! you could pay $35 - $120 USD for a comparable room depending on the hotel. Both could be moldy, run down, and serve bad breakfast so dont assume that a more expensive hotel will be better than a much cheaper one. Just do lots of research. Always ask for a room away from the bars and pool if you want a good nights sleep as some of the hotels are on the main road, even the ones on the beach. Generally if you pay $120 upwards your hotel should be pretty reasonable but again research is the key.
  • Tipping - Is gratefully excepted but not mandatory and I only ever tip if the food and service is good. Hotels nearly always add a 20% service charge to your bill. Private taxi drivers conveniently never carry change.
  • Transportation - First thing, Bali has a huge traffic problem and the short trip to the main tourist areas could take a few hours depending on the time of year you visit.The airport has the taxi situation tied up as you can only use their own taxi service unless prior arrangement has been made locally. They are a more expensive than local taxis and sometimes wont want to drop you directly outside the hotel due to narrow lanes that exist in Bali but you must insist (at the taxi desk prior to paying) and then they usually do. Otherwise once in the Bali ONLY use Bluebird taxis as they are good, clean and honest.Generally Baby seats dont exist in Bali but some hotels will offer pick up with a baby seat if you request one. Otherwise you can try the other company's but make sure you agree a price first or ensure the meter is turned on and you will be fine. I use private motorbike taxis at night as they are fast and generally go direct IE: wrong way down a one way street, they cost a lot more but I have never had a problem. Always haggle on price with private drivers, the price vary s heaps but still cheap, A private vehicle and driver all inclusive of fuel for a days hire is about USD $50, Most places in the South of Bali to the Airport $10 and local 5 minute taxi ride $2. Seat belts are still mandatory and Police will issue fines if your caught.

    Top end hotel in Amed $500 + per night I looked at staying on New Years Eve and the price was $950 per night. This is a great hotel but as I previously mention in my review its not the best hotel in Bali and certainly not worth the amount they charge. Its out of the way from any night life, not many local bars or cafes within walking distance. Its not on the beach and is set up on a very steep hill. The views from the sun deck are amazing and if money is no object the It probably would make a great place to stay for a night or two.

    Fantastic bar and restaurant right on the beach. The owners are very friendly and good fun. This is the only real place on the island that stays open late on a Friday. They have a pretty chilled party till late depending on whos about. Most of the ex-pats come here to chill so its pretty diver orientated.

    This is the ONLY company on the Island I would go diving with.. Nusa Lembongan is famous for its strong currents and deep water so when it comes to safety these are the guys I trust. They are very competitive with their prices and have all the latest equipment. The boat Captain knows the waters well and only dive in the right conditions. The guides and instructors are all western and know the dives sites as well as the locals. This is also the HQ for Aquatic Alliance so you can get to know more about the local Manta Rays and Mola Mola as they run info nights in the on site Yoga Shack.

    As a village it doesnt have have much going for it. There isnt a huge choice of nice bars and restaurants. Its really only somewhere to come if you want some great diving or need to catch the ferry over to Lombok or Nusa Penida. There are lots of places to stay but I would avoid the ones on the beach as I was woken up all night with the ferry horns blowing all hours. The local taxi drivers are touting for business after each ferry but be prepared to haggle hard 350,000 IDR is the right price back to the Kuta area.

    Depending on when you visit the beach could be full of rubbish washed up or it could be really nice and clean. The locals can be annoying trying to sell you things or offering a massage. Most people come here to learn how to surf as the surf is pretty good for learning on. Dont expect a Paradise Beach as Legian Beach is far from Paradise, the ocean is never beautiful blue water you would expect from Bali and often pretty dirty. This said it is a really nice beach for a walk as it is very long and wide, but not recommended at night as it can be dangerous.

    Very well set out. Not bad entry price and fair food and beverage prices which makes a nice change for theme parks. The ques though were generally too long for the water slides. Even the que for a locker took nearly half an hour. I didnt see the need to have a pool bar in the main swimming pool. It just encouraged Aussie Bogans to get drunk and smoke cigarettes around children. If you really feel the need to go to a theme park in Bali then its worth a visit if you dont mind ques but otherwise there are so many better ways to spend a day in Bali.

    If you are after shopping then this is a pretty good pace for original fashion items. Generally though they are the same if not more expensive than Australia so check the prices and compare. There are lots of great food and beverage places and even a cinema. I usually end up wandering through every time I come to Bali. Just be careful as you walk there because the tiled pavements on the road are very slippery when there wet.

    Cheap but not worth it, Ive tried all the boat companies in Sanur and what let these guys down was the transport to and from your hotel to the boat. Its was basically a shared mini bus that if you were unlucky you would have to drop everyone off before you got to your hotel. Other operators will pick you up in a car and drop you back direct.

    Great bar on the beach. The bungalows are very nice and reasonably priced. I always come here for beers and to watch the sunset. The beers are hit and miss... sometimes frozen by mistake and then taste a bit flat, other times there not cold enough. The food is very average and over priced and I never eat here. Still well worth a visit or a place to stay.

    Was fantastic once upon a time but now it pretty tired looking and service is up and down depending on whether the owners are about. The food is pretty good and they have a great selection of wines. They will pick you up and drop you off as we which is really handy. Worth a look as I have had some great nights there.

    First time to Bali Legian Street is a must do, there are heaps upon heaps of great places to eat and drink. This is pretty much where it all happens. Night Clubs, Bars, Shopping, Tattoos etc. The little shops all seem to sell the same old stuff so if you have seen one you have just about seen them all. Legian Street turns into madness at night though. Its pretty safe and I personally havent seen any trouble but that said It does have a bad reputation for drugs, muggings, rape (usually lone drunk girls walking home) and drunken revelers causing trouble. Every where you walk someone is trying to sell you cocaine, hashish, viagra and young girls. The local government are trying to improve alcohol abuse by becoming stricter on the liquor laws. Just keep your whits about you and dont get too drunk and reckless then you should be ok.
