Bali One Life Adventures - 12 Days

If you want to have a good time in Bali, look no further! Our guide (Josh) has been the best! As well as being a joy to be in the company of, he kept us all informed throughout the trip, constantly made sure we had everything we needed and our accommodation was to our liking. Highlights of the tour for me would definitely have to be surfing in Canggu (didn't think I would enjoy it- but so glad I did because it was SO FUN!) and definitely Gili T! With no motor vehicles allowed on the island, by bicycle you can go around the whole island in just over 30 mins, the vibe is so chilled and the sunsets are unreal! If island life is your thing, Gili T is the place to be 😍 The accommodation throughout this tour are so good and have everything you need (pool, WiFi, a/c) not to mention the Balinese hospitality is second to none! This was my second tour with One Life and I would not hesitate to book again and again! Just book it- you won't regret it

I booked this for my birthday and I was not disappointed at all! This is a great tour and the way that it is set up was perfect. The only thing I would have done differently would have been to book their boutique tour if the tour dates would have aligned with my schedule. Not that there was anything wrong with this one, I’m just bougie 🤷🏾‍♀️. If you’re on the fence, book it. If you have the funds book the same companies boutique tour 😊

Wanderlands Bali - 8 Days

I loved my wanderlands tour, it gave me so many amazing experiences and helped me connect with myself in a deeper way. I was in a spot in life where I needed something to change. I’m so lucky to have had my group leader as Stacia. She was so welcoming and since she’s a local, it gave a more authentic feel to Bali and the culture around it. I loved learning from her and having her guide me through this tour! She made me feel comfortable, safe and excited for our next day! I really appreciated how organized and on time she kept our group. The itinerary kept me busy and happy! I loved the events like snorkelling and hikes. I was also able to connect with myself on a more spiritual level too, Bali is the place for that. ❤️ One of my best friends came on the tour before me and told me it was a MUST and that booking my tour with Stacia, was also a MUST. He was definitely right and I agree with him completely! The group members are also amazing, being with like minded people and people who are close to my age. The hostels were all great and the food hasn’t let me down!

Wanderlands Bali & Lombok - 13 Days

I think the tour was Great. Zio was a Great Tour Guide and i experienced so many amazing things. For me personally, I think we could change the stay on lembongan to one on uluwatu, because i heard amazing things about it and I personally didnt Like our stay at lembongan that much. But I think we could have stayed on nusa penida. In General, I would have wished to learn more about the Culture and history of the Island. That was too less. And to be honest, i would have wished to eat more in local Restaurants than the more expansive ones for Tourists.

Bali Tour & Tour Packages Reviews

The best tour we could book to discover Bali. We visited all the sights worth seeing (Nusa Penida, Gili T, waterfall...) , did all the fun activities (surfing, snorkeling, monkey forest, etc) and learned a lot about balinese culture. Everything was well organized and went smooth. All the guides and instructors were real pros. Our tour guide, Josh did his best to inform us about everything in time and took care of our needs. We could always rely on him for advice and having a good time.
This tour was really a trip of a lifetime! It was a really good balance between guided tours and time to explore solo or with the group. We hit all of the Bali highlights and it was a blast. Our tour guide Alex was amazing! He was kind, helpful, accommodating, and he really cared about our experience! I would 10/10 recommend this trip and try to get Alex if you can!

How to visit Bali on a budget

Jan 17, 2024 • 6 min read

Let's demystify how to visit Bali when you're skint © Cheryl Ramalho / Getty Images

Bali on the cheap? Most would struggle to find ways to spend an entire lottery jackpot on the sun-drenched Indonesian island.

Still, there are times when we need to tighten the purse strings. Such as when you're at the beach, cocktail in hand, and you start daydreaming about extending your Bali stay again. For, say, another month to two. But with some careful planning and an open mind, Bali can be completely accessible for travelers of any budget.

Here are 10 tips to keep costs down.

GettyImages-1052986244.jpg

Daily costs

  • Hostel room: IDR 200,000 per night (in a shared dorm)
  • Basic hotel room for two: From IDR 545,000 per night
  • Self-catering apartment (including Airbnb): From IDR 280,000 per night
  • 15-minute Grab ride-share journey: IDR 116,000
  • Cocktail at a beach bar: IDR 100,000
  • Bottle of Bintang beer: IDR 31,000
  • Dinner for two at a mid-range restaurant: IDR 374,000

1. Work out your priorities

One of the most common questions from travelers heading to Bali is whether it’s cheaper than  Thailand (or various other popular destinations in  Southeast Asia ). But it’s important to remember that both are relatively large countries, so it depends on where you visit and  what you like to do . Popular  beach resorts such as  Kuta and  Seminyak are generally more expensive. Lesser-known areas tend to be better value for money.

Cheap vacations in Bali don’t have to mean skimping on everything. Simply work out what your priorities are. Lesser-visited spots, such as  Canggu on the southern coast, are more likely to have cheaper accommodation, but you’ll inevitably need the odd taxi journey to reach the shops or nearby nightlife spots. More popular areas have no shortage of ridiculously cheap hostels, but bars and restaurants tend to be more expensive in remote areas.

2. Eat (and drink) like a local

One of the best ways to cut the costs of a Bali vacation is to make a beeline for warungs – small, family-run restaurants and street food stalls. The food isn’t only ridiculously cheap but delicious, too. Popular warung dishes include nasi goreng (fried rice served with chicken or prawns) and mie goreng (fried noodles). Most warungs serve food to-go, so they’re great for take-out meals. Save more by drinking local, too. Opt for Indonesian lagers like Bintang.

3. Do I need to leave a tip?

Tipping isn’t customary in Indonesia , although gratuities of 10-20% are common if the service is great. A word of warning, though: it’s increasingly common for restaurants to add service charges to bills. Always check what’s included before you tip.

4. Don’t forget your travel insurance

Skimping on travel insurance might sound like a great way to save cash, but in reality, you could end up significantly worse off. Bali’s roads aren’t the safest, and if you’re planning on hiring a moped or motorbike (both brilliant options when it comes to  getting around Bali ), you’ll need to make sure your insurance policy will pay out in the event of an accident.

It’s also worth noting that simple things – such as not wearing a helmet or adequate clothing when riding a scooter – can invalidate insurance. If you’re considering certain high-risk activities, such as a PADI scuba diving course or a jet-skiing session, standard insurance policies likely won’t cover you. Add protection for these activities before you go.

5. Use ridesharing apps

Uber is no longer available in Bali (the company pulled out of Southeast Asia in 2018), but there are two great ridesharing apps: Indonesian company Gojek, and Grab. Gojek’s rates are generally lower, and transport options include mopeds (drivers will typically provide helmets).

For  longer distances , such as from  Denpasar in the south to  Padangbai on the eastern coast (the departure point for ferries heading to the  Gili Islands ), taxis will likely be the best option. For cheaper fares, negotiate a price beforehand. You should also buddy up with some fellow travelers if you can. You're almost guaranteed that someone in your hotel or hostel will be heading to the same place or somewhere along the route.

6. Invest in a water purification device

Drinking tap water is generally not a good idea in Bali. Nor is spending out on ocean-polluting plastic water bottles. Buy a water purification device before you head to Bali instead. The most common types are bottles with built-in filters from brands such as Lifestraw or Brita. Steripen also makes pocket-sized water purifiers, which use UV light to kill harmful bacteria.

7. Head off the beaten path

Kuta is a lot of fun.  Ubud is beautiful. But prices are higher in Bali’s more popular areas. Almost everything costs less in off-the-beaten-path destinations. Try  Sanur , a low-key beach resort with great snorkeling,  Uluwatu , known for its Hindu temples and a growing number of hip hotels, or laid-back  Lovina , which has black sands and rushing waterfalls.

If being close to the action is a priority, avoid staying in the immediate center of the town or the beach resort in question. It is surprising how much cheaper hotel prices are a little further out – and the noise of the nightclub or beach bar is less likely to disturb your sleep.

8. Haggle (within reason)

In recent years, there’s been somewhat of a backlash against haggling, but we’re in favor of it – within reason. If you’re nervous about asking for a discount but suspect the price of that beautiful sarong or plastic “I love Bali” magnet is too high, shop around. Likely, the item will still be in stock when you return. Especially that magnet. You will almost always be able to get a reduction on the listed price. Just don’t offend by being unreasonable.

9. Avoid peak season

The cheapest time of year for a Bali vacation ? Rainy season (October to February). But wait – it's also one of the best times to visit. This is when the island explodes with lush greenery and its waterfalls transform into thundering backdrops for selfies. Visitors also don't suffer from the inevitable heat-related fatigue travelers can experience during the sunniest months. Rains also tend to be short and sweet (January is the month with the most rainfall), so even if you’re caught in a downpour, your clothes will usually be dry in a matter of minutes.

10. Ask for discounts for longer stays at hotels

Negotiating a discount for longer stays can be a useful tactic to save money on accommodation. This works best at hostels and independent hotels – requesting a discount at the Four Seasons or Ritz-Carlton is unlikely to result in a discount (although if you’re staying in either, you’re probably not bothered about saving a few dollars).

It’s much easier to ask for this kind of discount when you’re on the ground, so If you’re worried about ending up with nowhere to stay, consider booking your first night through a website that allows for last-minute cancellations, then try and bag a better deal once you’re out there.

Tourists with their guide at a temple in Bali

There are 17,000 islands in the Indonesian archipelago, but none shine brighter than Bali. 

See the green slopes of Mt Batur to the Bintang bodegas on Seminyak’s main party strip. Bali is a volcano-dotted, beach-fringed paradise that’s serene and sensational by turns. Beyond the mega-resorts and yoga studios, you'll find the essence of Bali, the temples, out-of-the-way mountain towns, local markets and lazy fishing villages. Our Bali tours have something for everyone. Dive the impossibly blue waters off Lovina. Be welcomed into a Balinese family home. Soak in the Banja hot springs or sip smoothies in Ubud’s cafes . As always, when it comes to paradise, the hardest bit is choosing what to do first.

Local culture.

Between the 12th and 20th centuries, Bali has often been treated as a pawn in the games of kings, rajahs and generals. More often than not, its fate has been closely tied to neighboring Lombok with fierce battles between the two islands over the centuries as different rulers vied for regional dominance. This history of varied occupation can be seen in Bali today, with elements of Hinduism and Islam present in modern Balinese society. However, there is no historical animosity between the religions, or even between the islands of Lombok and Bali.

One of the defining moments in Bali’s history took place in the 16th century when the collapse of the Majapahit dynasty encouraged the spread of Islam from the surrounding states into the Javanese kingdom. Rather than live under Islamic rule, many Hindu elites chose to escape to Bali. These elites included many artists, dancers, musicians, actors and court-supported artisans, as well as some more artistically inclined priests. The result was an intense proliferation of cultural arts across Bali, no doubt inspired by rich Balinese folklore featuring epic battles of good and evil, gods and mortals. This reputation persists today, with many travelers falling in love with the island’s intricate temple carvings, dance performances, colorful sarongs and handicrafts.

When you combine a love of arts with world-class beaches and deliciously fiery sambals, it’s no surprise Bali’s tourism industry is soaring. It’s not unusual for someone to ask you whether this is your second, third or fourth visit to the island. Many locals rely on tourism to some extent, either by working as tour operators or running hotels, yoga studios, massage parlors, bars, cafes or restaurants.

The destination’s popularity with  Australians  means there’s a gradual cultural creep in larger cities like Seminyak, where Melbourne-style cafes and international clothing labels are particularly popular. If you escape the resorts and head further north from Denpasar, you’re more likely to encounter traditional warungs (eateries) and villages untouched by tourism sprawl.

One last word of advice: always watch where you put your feet. Locals will traditionally place small offerings on the footpaths outside their homes or businesses up to three times a day. 83.5% of the population identifies as Hindu and religion plays a large part in Balinese life. In fact, there is a small religious ceremony associated with just about every aspect of Balinese culture, whether it’s the beginning of a soccer game, celebrating the full moon or cleaning the house.

Food and drink

At first glance it might seem difficult to pinpoint Bali’s exact culinary identity. The mishmash of Indonesian and pan-Asian influences means you’re likely to come across menus that sometimes feel part Thai, Malaysian, Indian and Vietnamese. But no matter what you order, the food will always be fresh and bursting with flavor. Dishes are typically made fresh each day, with curries and pastes prepared by hand using traditional methods.

The most authentic food in Bali is usually found streetside at eateries called warungs. Warungs are common in every village and city, and a good place for a quick feed on a budget. Many will specialize in a small menu of popular local dishes.

Top foods to try in Bali

Babi guling:  This is slow cooking Balinese-style. A whole pig is stuffed with chilli, turmeric, ginger, galangal, shallots, garlic, coriander seeds and aromatic leaves and rotated over an open fire. This dish is commonly seen at celebrations.

Satay:  Sometimes spelt ‘sate’ on local menus, Indonesia is famous for its tasty meat skewers (usually chicken) cooked over hot coals and slathered in moreish peanut sauce.

Nasi campur:  Nasi campur feels like a bit of a buffet. Your plate typically comes with a scoop of nasi putih accompanied by small portions of a number of other dishes, including meats, vegetables, peanuts, eggs, and fried-shrimp krupuk.

Nasi goreng:  The old favorite among tertiary students is nothing like the local version. Nasi goreng, literally meaning "fried rice”, is a popular rice dish with pieces of meat and vegetables, and a fried egg added on top.

Sambal:  A fiery paste made using a chili base smashed with secondary ingredients like shrimp paste, fish sauce, garlic, ginger, shallot, scallion, palm sugar, lime juice, and rice vinegar.

Learn more about some of the dishes to try in Bali

Eating vegetarian in Bali

Going vegetarian is relatively easy in Bali as many dishes are already meat-free. Tofu and tempeh are also a standard part of the local diet. Key vegetarian dishes to look out for include nasi saur (rice flavored with toasted coconut and accompanied by tofu, tempeh, vegetables and sometimes egg), urap (steamed vegetables mixed with grated coconut and spices), gado gado (tofu and tempeh mixed with steamed vegetables, boiled egg and peanut sauce) and sayur hijau (leafy green vegetables, usually kangkung – water spinach – flavored with a tomato-chilli sauce).

The abundance of fresh fruits in Bali means you can buy fresh coconuts and juices (or fruity cocktails) almost anywhere you go. If you're looking for something with a bit more punch then you could order a Bintang, the national larger or maybe arak – a local liquor made from fermented rice and coconut palm flowers.

Festivals and events

Many festivals in the Balinese calendar revolve around religious and spiritual occasions marked by periods of prayer or silence, and followed by lots of festivities and feasting. Some festivals might be inconvenient for travelers, such as the Day of Silence, but they’re also a great opportunity to gain an insight into local life that many don’t get to see.

Multiple surf contests are held throughout the year at different times and in different places. Check with local surfing schools for up to date information.

Top festivals in Bali

Nyepi (Day of Silence):  Bali’s major Hindu festival, Nyepi, or the Day of Silence, celebrates the beginning of a new year and is marked by inactivity. Legends say that this is a strategy to convince evil spirits that Bali is uninhabited and therefore not worthy of visiting! Jokes on them. The day involves prayer, meditation and quiet reflection.

Bali Arts Festival:  For an island with a strong history of cultural arts, it’s no surprise the Bali Arts Festival has pride of place in the annual calendar. Based at the Taman Wedhi Budaya arts center in Denpasar, travelers can see village-based dance groups competing for local pride across several traditional dance categories. The date changes each year but is typically held between mid-June to mid-July.

Bali Kite Festival:  From July to October, the skies of southern Bali fill with huge, colorful monsters, critters and imaginative creations. Scores of kites are launched by the locals as part of this special spiritual event. It is believed the kites urge the gods to provide abundant harvests.

Indonesian Independence Day:  Held on 17 August each year, this day celebrates Indonesia's independence from the Dutch in 1945. Expect to see legions of marching school children, flags, kites and fireworks. Don’t expect to get anywhere quickly either on the day or the days leading up to it.

Galungan and Kuningan:  Galungan celebrates the death of a legendary tyrant called Mayadenawa. The celebrations come to a head with the Kuningan festival, which is when the Balinese say thanks and goodbye to the gods. The exact dates of these two festivals vary as they are planned using the 210-day wuku (or Pawukon) calendar.

Geography and environment

Bali is undoubtedly Indonesia’s most popular province thanks to its abundance of beautiful beaches, leafy jungles and impressive mountains. Located just east of Java and west of Lombok, the Bali province includes not only the island of Bali but also a few of the smaller neighboring islands, such as Nusa Penida, Nusa Lembongan, and Nusa Ceningan.

Bali's highest mountain is Mt Agung (3,031 m, 9,944 ft), which is also known as the "Mother Mountain”. One of the other popular volcanoes on the island is Mt Batur. Both of these volcanoes have contributed to Bali’s incredibly fertile soil, which has allowed the rice crop trade to flourish.

Bali is located just 8 degrees south of the equator, which means it enjoys a fairly even climate year-round. The average year-round temperature hovers around 86°F, with a humidity level of about 85%. It's also surrounded by coral reefs and is part of the Coral Triangle, an area with the highest biodiversity of marine species. Over 500 reef-building coral species can be found here, which is seven times the entire Caribbean.

Bali’s problems with environmental pollution are well-documented, and it’s fair to say that the nearly 5.7 million tourists who visit annually are contributing their fair share. In late 2017, Indonesian officials declared a “garbage emergency” after a tide of plastic washed up a 5.8 kilometer (3.6 mile) stretch of coastline. We encourage all travelers to carry a reusable plastic bottle with them, a reusable tote bag for carrying items and to try and minimize their use of plastics wherever possible.

While you’ll find many of the main tourism hubs, like Seminyak and Kuta, filled with international fashion labels, there are also many local boutiques offering a wide variety of hand-made goods. These include traditional wood carvings (and even some famously phallic bottle openers), silver jewelry, colorful sarongs, eco-friendly bags, bamboo satchels, recycled furniture and a near limitless range of body oils and fragrances. Of course, if you’re looking for a traditional ‘I Heart Bali’ t-shirt or Bintang singlet, these are never in short supply either.

Like many parts of South East Asia, bargaining is a big part of the local shopping experience. Getting a good price comes down to how well you can haggle, but it’s important to have fun, bargain in good faith, and remember to smile. You’ll usually find better prices, and more negotiable shop owners, away from the main tourist strips.

Trips from 1 January 2023 onwards

From 1 January 2023, Intrepid will no longer require travelers to provide proof of vaccination against COVID-19 (excluding all Polar trips and select adventure cruises).

However, we continue to strongly recommend that all Intrepid travelers and leaders get vaccinated to protect themselves and others.

Specific proof of testing or vaccination may still be required by your destination or airline. Please ensure you check travel and entry requirements carefully.

When is the best time to visit Bali?

Sitting a snug 8 degrees from the equator, Bali’s climate is classic tropics. There’s a dry season and a rainy season, and not a whole lot in between.

The best time for a Bali tour (weather-wise) is the July to August peak season, or from December to the first week of January.

Although if you’d like to avoid the crowds (and why wouldn’t you) shoulder months like April, May, June and September make an excellent alternative.

The weather is dry and slightly less humid, and the island in general is a lot more relaxed.

October isn’t too bad either, especially if you’re into water sports like scuba diving, surfing or snorkeling (the rainfall is much lighter than in November).

Do you need a visa for a Bali tour?

The short answer is maybe – depending on your nationality. Passport holders from over 60 countries (including the   UK ,   Australia   and the   United States ) can enter Indonesia with a free tourist visa on arrival which allows you to stay for 30 days for tourism purposes. An immigration officer will date stamp your passport when you arrive and you will not be able to extend your stay. If you overstay there are hefty fines of IDR 1,000,000 (approximately 70 USD) per day.

If there's a chance you might want to stay longer than 30 days, you'll need to pay for a visa on arrival or apply for one prior to traveling at an overseas Indonesian consulate or embassy.

To enter Bali, you’ll need to meet the following requirements:

  • proof of onward or return ticket
  • proof of funds to pay for your expenses during your trip
  • completed immigration card (this will usually be given to you on the plane or at the arrival terminal)

Local laws require that you must be able to show your valid passport at any time when required to do so by an immigration office. We recommend taking a clear photocopy of your passport photo page, and visa (after arriving), to carry with you.

This page is for general information only and may be subject to change. It is your responsibility to obtain relevant visa and travel information required for entry, departure and travel to each country or region you visit on your trip. You should confirm these with the relevant embassies and/or consulates.

Should I tip on a Bali tour?

Tipping isn’t compulsory in Bali, or anywhere else in Indonesia. But, like most countries, it’s very much appreciated.

Remember that many Balinese rely on tourism as a main source of income, and a tip is always appreciated.

What is the internet access like in Bali?

In tourist centers like Kuta, Seminyak, Denpasar, and Lovina internet access should be fine, and there will be plenty of internet cafes (or cafes with free internet) to choose from if your Wi-Fi isn’t up to scratch.

In more rural areas, there could be little or no coverage, particularly during homestays. Just remember to plan ahead. 

What are the toilets like in Bali?

Restaurants and hotels in developed tourist centers will have Western-style flush toilets.

In more rural areas the traditional squat toilet will be more common.

We recommend packing a bottle of hand sanitizer if you plan to visit rural parts of Bali.

What will it cost for a...?

Indonesia is one of the world's favorite budget travel destinations. Here's what you can roughly expect to pay for a:

  • Street food snack = 0.15c USD
  • Fresh juice = 0.40c USD
  • Bottle of beer in a bar = 1.50 USD
  • Souvenir sarong = 1.80 USD
  • Dinner in a restaurant = 3 USD

Can I drink the water on a Bali tour?

Drinking water from taps isn’t recommended in Indonesia, but for environmental reasons try to avoid buying bottled water every day. There are a number of filtered canteens you can purchase or bring a supply of water filtration tablets that you can drop into your bottle wherever you go.

If you’re traveling on an Intrepid Travel trip, we always carry with us a large drum of water in our truck to refill your bottles on the road. Our hotel operators will also provide water free of charge to refill your bottles.

Are credit cards accepted widely in Bali?

Major credit cards are widely accepted by large shops, hotels and restaurants in Bali.

T hey may not be accepted by smaller vendors such as small family restaurants, market stalls or in remote towns and rural areas.

Make sure you carry enough cash for purchases since credit cards aren't always an option everywhere in Bali.

What is ATM access like in Indonesia?

ATMs are found widely throughout Bali, so withdrawing cash shouldn't be problematic in most areas. Some smaller villages and rural areas may not have ATM access, so be prepared for this before venturing too far from a city or major town.

Do I need to purchase travel insurance before traveling?

Absolutely. All passengers traveling with Intrepid are required to purchase travel insurance before the start of their trip. Your travel insurance details will be recorded by your leader on the first day of the trip. Due to the varying nature, availability and cost of health care around the world, travel insurance is very much an essential and necessary part of every journey.

For more information on insurance, please go to: Travel Insurance

What public holidays are celebrated in Bali?

Public holidays may vary from year to year. Find out more information on current public holidays in Bali.

Are Intrepid trips accessible for travelers with disabilities?

We are committed to making travel widely  accessible , regardless of ability or disability. We do our best to help you see the world, regardless of physical or mental limitations. 

We are always happy to talk to travelers with disabilities and see if we can help guide them toward the most suitable itinerary for their needs and, where possible, make reasonable adjustments to our itineraries.

Is Bali safe for LGBTQIA+ travelers?

Homosexuality is legal in most of Indonesia, however, revisions to Indonesia’s criminal code are currently being considered that would criminalize gay sex and same-sex relationships. Advocacy groups fear this would represent a profound setback to human rights in Indonesia as a result. The LGBTQIA+ community has also been known to be targeted and harassed by police.

Bali, with its Hindu majority, has always been more liberal, tolerant and relaxed in attitude, however, public displays of affection are still not the norm for any couples anywhere in the country. Upscale hotels will likely not have any issues with same-sex travelers sharing a bed, however, if you are staying in budget or family-run businesses and are allocated separate beds, you might feel more comfortable not drawing attention to your relationship. 

Because sex, in general, is a taboo subject in Indonesian society, the issue of sexuality is unlikely to arise while traveling here. Indonesia is generally safe for queer travelers, provided you are willing to be discreet and cautious with public behavior.

For more detailed and up-to-date advice, we recommend visiting  Equaldex  or  ILGA  before you travel. 

BALI TRAVEL GUIDE with Sample Itinerary & Budget

BALI TRAVEL GUIDE with Sample Itinerary & Budget

By continuing to read this article, you agree to double check with the authorities or other concerned entities for the latest updates.

When I think of Bali, the first word that comes to mind is “honeymoon”.

After all, in the book and movie “Eat Pray Love,” Bali represents love. And in many other films and TV shows, it is depicted as a romantic setting. Growing up, I always imagined it as a destination mainly for special celebrations. Back then, there were no direct flights from where I’m from to this Indonesian paradise. At least, no low-cost flights. A trip to Bali was a trip that you prepare for, you save a lot for. Of course, a lot has changed since.

Today, most of us know that Bali is not just a lover’s paradise. The island has something for travelers seeking nature, culture, and adventure. It is also an ideal choice for family trips, solo travels, group holidays, and even company incentive tours.

WHAT'S COVERED IN THIS GUIDE?

UNDERSTANDING BALI

Bali is Indonesia’s most famous tourist destination. The tourism industry is the province’s main source of income, fueled by tourism-related businesses like hotels and resorts, tour agencies and operators, etc.

Aside from making up the majority of the province’s economy, tourism also led to the development of more sophisticated arts and crafts. It also revived some of the traditional dances and customs that are otherwise left buried and forgotten. Natural attractions also abound in Bali — both on land and underwater. Rice terraces, mountains, islands, beaches, jungles, caves, waves, and marine life are the draw for the adventurous. All these and more propelled Bali to rise as one of the world’s top destinations.

Essential Information:

  • Language: The most widely spoken languages are Indonesian/Bahasa Indonesia and Balinese. Most people understand and speak English too.
  • Religion: Over 80% of the residents practice Balinese Hinduism, which is unique in Indonesia, a predominantly Muslim country. It is important to be respectful of their way of life, especially when visiting spiritual sites like temples. The island also observes Nyepi Day (Day of Silence), which we will discuss below.
  • Time Zone: GMT+8 (Central Indonesia Time). Bali is in the same time zone as Manila, Singapore, and Kuala Lumpur; and an hour ahead of Jakarta.
  • Currency: Indonesian Rupiah (IDR, Rp). USD 1 is around IDR 14,000; PHP 1 is around IDR 278; EUR 1 is around IDR 15,500 (as of November 2019)
  • Modes of Payment: Most of the stores and restaurants transact in Rupiah, but major credit cards are accepted by most hotels, fine-dining restaurants, and souvenir shops. I noticed that quite a number of establishments have large signs that say they prefer Mastercard. Others like Visa and American Express are accepted too.

WHERE TO STAY IN BALI

Bali Province is composed of Bali Island and other smaller islands clustered on the southeast portion, namely Nusa Penida, Nusa Ceningan, and Nusa Lembongan. The city of Denpasar is the provincial capital.

Bali has the most diverse options in Indonesia when it comes to accommodations. There are guesthouses, inns ( losmens ), hostels, budget hotels, high-end hotels, resorts, and villas.

The island can be split into four regions: South, North, Central/East, and West Bali. Although it is possible to stay in other regions, the southern portion is the most popular tourist hub. The majority of the accommodations, restaurants, cafes, bars, shopping areas, and attractions are located here.

bali cheapest tours

As you can see on the map, most of the island’s tourist attractions can be found in the South. Most visitors choose to stay in the south because of the tourist-friendly services and amenities. Furthermore, it’s accessibility makes it a good base and jump-off point to other tourist destinations in Bali. For me, the most ideal places to stay in the south are the following:

  • Seminyak. Seminyak is located further north of Kuta. It is like the high-end version of Kuta. Seminyak has plenty of luxury hotels, villas, and spa resorts.
  • Legian. Legian is a suburb located between Kuta and Seminyak. It offers the best of both worlds — budget and luxury. This area is tamer compared to both Kuta and Seminyak.
  • Kuta. Kuta District in Badung Regency has the highest concentration of accommodations in Bali. Although there are high-end hotels here, the town is known for its budget- and backpacker-friendly accommodations.

But if you’re after peace of mind or a more cultural experience, Ubud in Central/East region is also a great choice. It’s not as accessible as the beach towns, but it offers a relaxing Balinese getaway.

We’ve discussed these areas in detail in a separate article: BEST AREAS TO STAY IN BALI!

How to get to bali.

The primary gateway to Bali is Ngurah Rai International Airport, also known as Denpasar Airport or Bali Airport. It is situated in the southern part of the island near the capital, Denpasar, and located between Kuta and Jimbaran. The airport is one of the busiest in Indonesia and connects to major cities and airports, both domestic and international.

Manila is directly connected to Bali. The travel duration between Manila and Bali is approximately four (4) hours.

Travelers arriving in Bali are requested to fill out two forms: Custom Declaration Form and the yellow Health Declaration Form . No need for Arrival Card. If you are arriving as a family, you need to fill out only one Custom Declaration Form. Our forms were given to us onboard.

Bali Airport to Kuta, Legian, Seminyak or Canggu

A majority of tourists choose these four areas as their bases: Kuta, Legian, Seminyak, and Canggu. All of them are located north of the airport on the southwest coast of Bali. Estimated travel duration:

  • To Kuta – 30 minutes
  • To Legian – 1 hour
  • To Seminyak – 1 hour
  • To Canggu – 1.5 hours

Here are your options for the mode of transportation from the airport to any of these tourist areas:

  • Arranged Transport Services (Example: hotel service and tour operators)
  • Airport Taxi
  • Metered Taxi
  • Ride-sharing Apps
  • Public Transportation (Example: Angkot/Bemo and Trans Sarbagita)
  • Tourist Shuttle (Example: Kura Kura Bus and Perama Bus)
  • Online Booking

For the detailed post on how to get to Bali and its tourist centers, we created a separate article for that. You may read it here: Bali Airport to the Tourist Centers.

If you’re a group, a convenient option to consider is a private transfer. An indication that it’s one of the most trusted airport transfer options is the significant number of Klook-affiliated drivers waiting at the Arrival Lobby. All of them, wearing the orange Klook uniform, are clustered in one area. Some transfer packages on Klook also include data SIM cards.

HOW TO GET AROUND BALI

bali cheapest tours

There are choices aplenty for the modes of transportation to get around Bali. Here are your options:

  • Joining a group tour. Most tourists prefer to join group tours to get to famous attractions. These tours are offered by hotels, travel agencies and tour operators. You can also book the tour ahead online through Klook. We will tackle more of this later on the Things to Do in Bali section of this guide.

bali cheapest tours

  • Tourist Shuttle. Well, from the name itself, this option is more tourist-friendly than the regular public buses in Bali. These shuttles cover the main tourist destinations in Bali. Kura Kura Bus and Perama Bus are popular among tourists. To contact them, you may check their official websites and social media accounts. Kura Kura Bus has a mobile app too!
  • Regular Bus. Trans Sarbagita is Bali’s bus rapid system that serves mainly Denpasar and the southern Bali area. It has fixed routes but no fixed schedule. Other regular buses normally cover long-distance routes. The fare depends on your destination. However, this is not recommended to take if you are pressed for time.
  • Bemo or Angkot. These are local minivans. They are normally open and non-airconditioned. They look like vans but they work like Philippine’s jeepneys.
  • Taxi. For short-distance travel, tourists hop on a taxi. Taxis are relatively cheap in Bali compared to other countries. The meter starts at IDR 7,000 (PHP25/USD.50/EUR.45) and IDR 6,500 (PHP24/USD.46/EUR.42) per succeeding kilometer. As a rule of thumb, always insist on using the meter.
  • Ride-Sharing App. Or a ride-hailing app. This should be the most convenient option BUT it’s a bit tricky to use ride-sharing apps like GoJek and Grab in Bali. There are certain streets that don’t allow these vehicles to pass and certain hotels that discourage their guests from hailing a ride using the app.
  • Motorcycle or Car Rental. Some travelers who like to be in total control of their time and itinerary opt to rent a car or a motorcycle. A motorcycle is the main mode of transportation used by both locals and tourists. The tourist hubs are bombarded by lots of motorcycle-for-rent ads/signboards. The rental rates range from IDR 70,000 (PHP250/USD5/EUR4.5) to IDR 150,000 (PHP540/USD11/EUR10) per day, depending on the type of motorcycle.

POCKET WIFI RENTAL & LOCAL SIM IN BALI

bali cheapest tours

There are many available local SIM and pocket WiFi rentals in Bali. You can also get your SIM card or pocket WiFi from Klook!

bali cheapest tours

Having a reliable internet connection while traveling is beneficial. It will help you save time and money as you explore. You can access Google Maps, a language translation app, and the currency conversion app. And should you decide to book tours or private car with a driver, you can communicate with the local drivers, tour operators, and tour guides via online messaging apps.

THINGS TO DO IN BALI

The good news is, Bali has a lot to offer. A LOT. You’ll never run out of things to do and places to discover even if you stay for weeks. I have friends who are now based in Bali and they still haven’t explored many parts of the island.

The bad news is, well, Bali has a lot to offer. With so many options, it can be quite challenging to pick attractions and activities, especially if you have limited time. If you’re building a Bali itinerary, it will help to look at them as tour packages. Many tours bundle tourist sites according to proximity (attractions closer to each other) or according to your interests. You’re in Bali to see the temples? There are tours for that. Food? There are tours for that. Beaches and waterfalls? There are tours for that. Instagrammable spots? You bet there are tours for that, too!

Important! If you’re booking multiple pre-arranged tours, compare itineraries first and check if there are repetitive items. You probably don’t want to visit the same attraction twice.

Bali Instagram Tour

bali cheapest tours

For Instagrammers, Bali is the promised land. Its every nook and cranny has an Insta-worthy spot. No wonder a lot of Instagram tours have sprouted over the past few years. If you’re the type who always wants the most memorable photos from your trips, this may be for you.

Klook offers a tour that will take you to the island’s most Instagrammable spots with a professional photographer to ensure you have pictures worth sharing. The tour package includes hotel pickup and drop-off, English-speaking driver, entrance fees, parking fees, and service fee for the photographer. My only request is, take some time to appreciate each of the spots you will visit and experience them fully, not just as a backdrop.

Anyway, you can choose between BALI IG TOUR, NORTH BALI IG TOUR, and UBUD IG TOUR.

Lempuyang Temple and East Bali Tour

bali cheapest tours

You might recognize Lempuyang Temple by its iconic, Instagram-worthy Gate of Heaven , which frames the majestic Mt. Agung in the background. But this temple, more formally called Pura Penataran Agung Lempuyang, is definitely more than just a selfie spot. Standing on the slope of Mount Lempuyang, it is one of the six holiest places in Bali, which are believed to maintain the spiritual balance in the island.

If you want to take the photo at the Gate of Heaven, prepare to wait for a long time, unless you’re visiting early. You can book a private SUNRISE TOUR on Klook, which also includes a stop at Virgin Beach and Asah Hill. Sunset tour is also available.

If you’re not the early morning type, you can also book a regular DAY TOUR with stops at Tirta Gangga and Taman Ujung water palaces. Join-in and private options are available for this.

Important! If you’re also going to book the BALI INSTAGRAM TOUR (see above), these tours might feel repetitive because they both make a stop at Lempuyang Temple. It’s best to choose just one.

bali cheapest tours

Ubud and Central Bali Tour

bali cheapest tours

Ubud is the heart and soul of Bali. Although it has become busier as more tourists flood in over the years, it remains the island’s cultural core. It has a lot to offer: breathtaking scenery, nature, temples, and the traditional Balinese way of life. Although it is possible to stay in Ubud, most tourists visit only on a day tour. Klook has a lot of Ubud offers, but the two with the best itineraries are the following: a join-in shuttle service and a private tour package .

JOIN-IN SHUTTLE SERVICE The shuttle service includes only the transfers for the full day, driver fee, and insurance, but NOT the entrance fees. It does not include hotel pickup or drop-off. You will need to meet up with the driver. There are meetup locations in Kuta, Seminyak, Nusa Dua, Ubud, and Sanur. This is a join-in tour, so you will be sharing the vehicle with other tourists.

Here are the stops and the corresponding entrance fees (which you will need to pay for at the site).

  • Tegenungan Waterfall – IDR 15,000
  • Sacred Monkey Forest – IDR 80,000
  • Ubud Art Market or Ubud Royal Palace
  • Tegalalang Rice Terrace – IDR 20,000
  • Swing at Alas Harum – IDR 150,000 to 300,000

PRIVATE TOUR PACKAGE This is a private tour that includes hotel pick-up and drop off, transfers and driver fee, all entrance fees, and a bottled water. What’s not included is the optional swing fee. The places to be visited are the same as the shuttle service but with additional stops at Tirta Empul Holy Springs and Elephant Cave (Goa Gajah). Here are the usual stops:

  • Tegenungan Waterfall
  • Elephant Cave
  • Tirta Empul Holy Springs
  • Tegalalang Rice Terrace (optional jungle swing experience)
  • Ubud Monkey Forest
  • Ubud Art Market

Because it’s a private tour, the price per person depends on how many you are in the group.

bali cheapest tours

Nusa Penida Tour

bali cheapest tours

Nusa Penida is a breathtaking island off the southeastern coast of Bali. It is best known for the dinosaur-shaped Kilingking Beach, which is just one of its many spectacular sights. Nusa Penida tours are categorized into three: West, East, and South. Here are the main stops per tour:

  • West Tour: Kilingking Beach, Angel’s Billabong, Broken Beach, Crystal Bay
  • East Tour: Teletubbies Hills, Thousand Island viewpoint, Tree House, Diamond Beach, Atuh Beach
  • South Tour: Tembeling Beach, Banah Cliff

If you don’t know how to drive, you have two options. You can travel on your own to Sanur Harbor, where you’ll catch the boat to Nusa Penida. Once on the island, you can charter a private car with driver. You can book with Klook. See link below.

The second option is to join a group tour from your hotel in Kuta, Denpasar or Seminyak. They will pick you up at your hotel, transfer you to Sanur Harbor, get you on the boat to Nusa Penida, tour you around the island, and take you back to the hotel at the end of the day. It’s more expensive but hassle-free because you don’t need to worry about anything.

If you do know how to drive and you have a license, you can also rent a motorcycle or car on the island.

Uluwatu Temple

bali cheapest tours

Pura Luhur Uluwatu is a Hindu sea temple that sits atop a cliff. It is one of the six key temples that make Bali’s spiritual pillars. The main temple is open only to worshipers. However, visitors are treated to a spectacular view of the sea from outside the temple.

The temple ground is visited by monkeys dwelling in the forest that surrounds it. These monkeys are known to snatch things from visitors so take care of your belongings, especially your accessories like sunglasses. There’s a cliffside pathway also that gives visitors different viewing points of the Indian Ocean, the tides, and the sunset. You need to wear sarong and sash to enter the temple ground. These are provided at the temple for free. The best time to go is early afternoon, just before the crowd thickens, as it is one of the best places to see the sunset on the island. In fact, the famous Kecak Dance, a Balinese art form, is performed daily starting at dusk, affording the audience to watch two beautiful masterpieces — the dance and the sunset.

At around 6 PM, Kecak (pronounced “ke-chak”) Dance is performed daily on a cliffside open-air venue within the temple grounds of Uluwatu Temple. It is based on the epic Ramayana, focusing on how Rama and his brother rescued his abducted wife, Sita, with the help of the monkey king and his troops.

Kecak Dance is characterized by the chanting and dancing of 75 men while the performers re-enact some of the scenes from the epic tale. It is recommended to go there early at least an hour ahead to secure a good spot. You can purchase your ticket in advance too.

  • Admission Fee: IDR 30,000
  • Kecak Dance Fee: IDR 100,000
  • Opening Hours: 9:00 AM – 7:00 PM; 24/7 for worshipers
  • Kecak Dance Schedule: Starts at 6:00 PM daily

Lines can be too long. But you can book your ticket in advance through Klook. You can also join a tour which includes a Kecak Dance ticket via Klook. The tour package includes roundtrip transfers (hotel pick up and drop off). If you’re a private group, the itinerary also includes a stop at Padang-Padang Beach .

Ulun Danu Beratan, Jatiluwih Rice Terraces, and Tanah Lot Tour

bali cheapest tours

This tour features three of Bali’s most iconic sites:

  • Ulundanu Beratan Temple. Located on the shores of Lake Bratan in Tabanan, this is a major Hindu Shaivite water temple. Just like the other water temples Uluwatu and Tanah Lot, Ulun Danu Beratan offers a dreamy tableau when the tide is high and the lake water borders the temple on all sides.
  • Jatiluwih Rice Terraces. Bali’s map is striped by a lot of terraced hills, but this is one of the best representations of Bali’s Cultural Landscape, which was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
  • Tanah Lot. One of the icons of Bali, Tanah Lot is a temple perched on an islet, 300 meters off the coast of Beraban, Kederi in Tabanan. The actual temple is open to worshipers only, but visitors can enjoy the scenic setting. Best enjoyed at sunset!

Bali Food Tour

One of the ways to immerse yourself in the culture of the place is through the local cuisine. Indonesian food is generally spicy; Bali is not an exception. Here are some dishes to dig into when in Bali.

bali cheapest tours

  • Ayam/Bebek Betutu. This is a spicy smoked chicken or duck seasoned with bumbu betutu (spicy paste) served with mixed veggies, rice, and sambal.
  • Bebek Bengil/Goreng. This is a crispy duck marinated in Indonesian spices, then steamed, and finally fried.
  • Sate. Pork satay or chicken satay are common, but lamb satay is also available.
  • Babi Guling. This is like Philippine’s lechon . Also called Balinese suckling pig, Babi Guling is usually served with stewed vegetables, rice, crispy pork skin, and pork sausages. The pig is seasoned with local spices so it’s spicy.

You can join organized food tours not just to have a taste of Balinese food but also learn about them. There are 2 foodie tours available on Klook: a more general food tour and a street food tour.

Other Places to Visit in Bali

bali cheapest tours

Here are other tourist attractions in Bali.

  • Seminyak. Seminyak is Kuta’s less popular but cleaner, calmer and classier seatmate. It is lined with high-end shops, chic bars, and trendy spots. Like Kuta, it is a surfer’s paradise. It’s also located along the same coast, so they share the same view of the sunset.
  • Kuta Beach. Also called Sunset Beach, it has fine cream-colored sand where tourists laze around or watch the sun go down. It’s also a popular surfing place and the epicenter of the island’s vibrant nightlife.

bali cheapest tours

  • Taman Ayun Temple. Taman Ayun means “Garden Temple in the Water”. The living legacy of the Mengwi Empire, this family temple is also one of the six royal temples in Bali. Admission Fee: IDR 20,000 Opening Hours: 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM (Daily)
  • Saraswati Temple. Located in Ubud, Pura Taman Saraswati is another Hindu water temple. The most prominent feature is the foyer with lotus ponds. During the evening, a traditional dance performance is held at the open stage. Admission Fee: FREE Dance Performance: 7:30 PM, IDR 80,000/pax Opening Hours: 8:00 AM – 6:00 PM
  • Di Kubu Strawberry. A fruit farm in Tabanan Regency, where you can pick your own strawberries. The place also has a relaxing ambiance and presents a view of the lake too. Opening Hours: 10:00 AM – 9:00 PM
  • Sukawati Art Market. Locally called Pasar Seni Sukawati, it is said to be the most established art market in the island. It is where both locals and tourists shop; locals for their everyday needs, tourists for souvenirs. Opening Hours: 6:00 AM – 6:00 PM

MORE TIPS FOR THE POOR TRAVELER

  • Try a warung in your area for authentic and delicious but budget-friendly meals. A warung is a local food stall, usually serving traditional Indonesian cuisine. You can have a tasty dish for only Rp15,000. Some dishes are more expensive, some are cheaper.
  • When paying using credit cards, note that most have 3-5% surcharge. Always check with the restaurant or the business establishment you are transacting with.
  • Indonesians are friendly and hospitable. Most can speak and understand English, so don’t hesitate to ask if you get lost.
  • Have enough cash on hand, especially if you are traveling to remote areas or the southeastern islands. You might have a hard time finding ATMs or even transact using your credit card when you go to these far-flung places.
  • Purchase travel insurance. As we always recommend our readers, this is something you won’t need to use but you’ll be grateful you did in case something happens.
  • If you are staying in Ubud, keep in mind that some taxis will charge big because, by certain regulations, they are not permitted to pick up passengers, only drop them off. Also, ride-sharing service is not allowed in Ubud. You might want to book your airport transfer to and from Ubud through Klook.
  • Always insist on using the meter when riding a taxi.
  • It’s best to carry small bills with you should you decide to take the taxi so you can pay the exact fare and not fall for the rampant no-change excuse.
  • Wear sash and sarong inside the Hindu temples. These are normally provided by the temple management.
  • Strict observance of Nyepi Day. Nyepi Day or Day of Silence is an important public holiday in Bali, celebrated every Saka New Year. It is observed by fasting and meditating and doing less or nothing at all. The observance period is 6AM – 6AM (the next day). During this time frame, locals AND tourists are expected to follow the restrictions such as no working, no lighting of fires, no lights (or used rarely), no traveling, and no entertainment. For some, they can even go with no talking. Even Bali Airport is closed the entire day. No one is allowed outside the streets except the security people and when there’s an emergency. Nyepi Day usually happens in March.
  • Galungan. It happens twice per year (every six months). It is characterized by bamboo poles with offerings attached at the end.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT BALI

When is the best time to go to bali.

April, May, June — just before the peak season.

The peak or high season is from July to early September. These are driest months. But it’s also the busiest, most crowded. It coincides with Australian winter, and many of them escape the cold to Bali. Late September is also a good time to visit, when the crowds start to thin.

bali cheapest tours

Christmas and New Year seasons (December-January) are also busy months for Bali. Expect airfare, hotel rates, restaurants, tours, and other services to skyrocket.

Lean months are February to June and October to November. Prices are cheaper and the tourist attractions are less crowded, but these months also record the highest rainfall.

Bali has a tropical climate; hot and humid all year round, especially in the coastal and low areas. Elevated and mountainous Central Bali area has a cooler temperature.

Do I need a visa to visit Bali?

Indonesia is one of the most open countries in terms of visa policies. Citizens of 170 countries and territories, the Philippines included, can visit Indonesia VISA-FREE for stays of up to 30 days.

To be sure that your country is included in the visa-exempt countries, check the website of the Indonesian Embassy where you are or contact them.

Do I need polio vaccine to visit Bali?

Recently, Indonesia has required a Polio Vaccination certificate from certain nationalities who wish to travel to Indonesia.

For travelers from the Philippines, you only need to secure a Polio Vaccination Certificate IF you are planning to stay for FOUR WEEKS or longer. If you fall under this category and you don’t have said immunization requirement, Indonesia’s Port Health Office at the port of entry will give you polio vaccination. A fee of Rp45,000 (PhP165) will be charged.

What plug type is used in Bali?

Types C and F. Most establishments have two-pin round plugs at 220 V and 50 Hz.

bali cheapest tours

Where can I exchange my money in Bali?

Our preferred method of securing local currency is by withdrawing from the ATM. Most ATMs, however, have a withdrawal limit of Rp2 million to 2.5 million.

For tourist hotspots like Kuta, Seminyak, and Ubud, money exchange kiosks in Bali are plenty. You can also exchange at banks. Some hotel fronts also have money exchange stalls installed.

If you transact with money changers, check their online reviews first and check the rates carefully because some establishments have records of scamming tourists.

Where can I find ATMs in Bali?

ATMs abound in Bali, particularly the most visited areas. Choose the safest place to transact, usually well-lit areas like malls and commercial complexes or those attached to the bank establishments. Bank Central Asia (BCA), Bank Mandiri, and Bank Negara Indonesia (BNI) are some of the most trusted ATMs to withdraw money from. Other shopping malls provide international ATMs like HSBC.

ATMs in Bali dispense Rp50,000 and/or Rp100,000 notes. The withdrawal limit is usually Rp2 million or 2.5 million.

Is it safe in Bali?

It is generally safe in Bali. Just like in other foreign countries, there are scams so you need to be aware of the correct rates and prices. Be mindful of your surroundings and keep an eye on your belongings as always. Bali also has world-class yet relatively inexpensive hospitals and medical services. Know the local emergency services contacts such as the ambulance, the fire department, and the police.
