Cool Places to Stay in Bali   by Lek Boonlert

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 other options.
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 way around.
