Getting to Bali is not difficult,
but is quite an extensive journey. Most international flights fly into
the Indonesian capital of Jakarta. From there, many tourists take a flight
on a budget airline to the capital of Bali, Denpasar, though there are
|For travelers interested
in getting off the beaten path, try catching a bus from Jakarata to Denpasar
now connected by bridge and ferry. The journey takes over 24 hours, but
highlights the intense difference between the neighboring Javanese and
Balinese people. Women should keep to themselves on this journey as any
sort of contact with men may be considered an accidental invitation.
Once in Bali, many tourists
opt to stay in Kuta Beach. Kuta is known for its nightlife. With clubs
open until 2 am and late night rock bands blasting from the local Hard
Rock Café, it is the most obvious place to meet fellow travelers
and see the more youthful side of the island. Your hotel in Bali should
be a suitable place to find out about the local scene as well arrange transportation
for the evening.
Tourists that would like
to stay at a resort in Bali often move away from Kuta to quieter locations
such as Semawang or Nusa Dua. All around the island these luxurious, untouched
beach locations can be found more suitable for those on a romantic getaway
or yearning for time for peace and reflection. Resorts and hotels in Bali
are all very affordable and any location that you choose will be a pleasant
stay away from home.
Travelers that are looking
to escape the fanciness or hustle and bustle of the beach might choose
to stay in Bali's 'other capital' Ubud. Ubud is know for it's art culture
and accommodations in this part of the island offer an endless view of
perfect sunsets over the paddy fields.
Denpasar, the island's capital,
is also an interesting place to make your stay if you are looking to get
a real idea of Bali life away from tourist central. Inexpensive shopping
and authentic Balinese cuisine can be found here without the hassle of
noisy vendors, though it can be a bit more of a challenge to found your
|Seminyak and Jimbaran are
two other locations that are sure to please. With private beaches attached
to fully staffed villas, these Bali destinations are truly made for royalty.
Villa resorts, such as The Longhouse, also offer a spa room, private gym,
cooking classes, Balinese dance lessons as well as an arts and craft course.
Every whim of your desire can be met at the discounted Bali price.
Located in the mysterious
mountain regions of the island is the breathtakingly beautiful Campuhan
River. The heart and soul of the Balinese Aga lies here as well as a number
of accommodating resort destinations. The perfect place for a mountain
view and cooler experience of this equatorial location.
Pools and gardens here are
encased in green richness that both inspire and delight all that come to
visit. It is one of the best locations in Bali to soul search at local
temples or river raft through stunning caverns. Located near Ubud, it is
a only a short drive to many tourist attractions such as the monkey temple
and butterfly farm. Enjoy the slow pace of life here riding a bicycle through
the peaceful streets. The local people will be sure to smile and welcome
you to their island home.
