Central Bali

The weather can vary considerably depending on the altitude. Temperatures will generally be lower than on the coast and rainfall may be substantially higher in places. We advise checking the weather in the specific area you plan to travel in advance.

Getting There

Bali Ngurah Rai International Airport more commonly known as Denpasar International Airport is the most common way for people getting to Bali. International flights are available from many countries including most regional hub airports.

It also possible to travel to Bali by ferry from the mainland and Lombuk and buses are also available from main locations in Indonesia. However the length of the journey and cheap local airfares are likely to make these options less attractive.

Getting Around

Taxi – Available in most tourist areas often cruising around looking for a fare. many of the taxis have meters but if they don’t try and agree a price before the trip.

Bemo – A van or microbus with the seats taken out and wooden bench seats running down each side. Used widely by locals this is non-luxury travel but offers a much more authentic experience. Generally run set routes but you can get on and off at any point.

Shuttle Bus – More comfortable than a Bemo with proper seats and air-conditioning. A wide network links most tourist areas throughout the island.

Car Rental – You can hire a car to drive yourself or with a driver, which may be a much better options to really enjoy the trip. If you choose to drive yourself you will need an international driving license and make sure you are properly insured. Beware of traffic which can seem to make up the rules as they go along, especially the hordes of motorbikes.

Motorbike Rental – Can be a great way of exploring but as always make sure you wear a helmet and drive carefully as the roads can be much more chaotic and dangerous that you are used to.
