Transport on the island is quite developed, and you will not have any problems to get to any point of the island. If you are a budget traveler, then you will have many inexpensive modes of transport, combining which you will be able to travel around the island very inexpensively.


Usually it is recommended to use taxis with a meter. Even if you take an official taxi, make sure the driver turned on the meter, otherwise at the end of the trip he could disappoint the incredible cost of the trip. Before boarding tell the driver "Taxi-meter", and if he says that the meter is not working, it is better to find another taxi. The cost of planting and the first two kilometers of 5,000 rupees, and 5000 rupees for every additional kilometer.

The most popular and reputable taxi BlueBird. It is a blue car with a white bird on the logo. White taxis are best avoided – they are notorious.

Taxi or Public bemo, it is similar to our gazelles. The movement in them is very cheap. The cost of the trip depends on the length of the route, and within the city ranges from 5 000 to 15 000 Rp. Taxis ply including between cities, and by combining the routes, you can get them at any corner of the island, but to travel for a long distance it is better to use a tourist bus.

The BEMO drivers are always trying to extort money from tourists. Often the question about the route they perceive as something that you hire them as a taxi and will take you wherever you need. Of course you will have to pay as per taxi. So if you are really talking with the driver about the route, then be sure to check the price of the trip.

On the island of Bali not so much exotic fruits, especially during their off-season ripening, and the prices are quite high. How do local justify such a high price: the island is small and there is almost nothing growing and all imported, so expensive. But I am inclined to them a little do not trust and think that high prices probably because of the desire to earn more money. If you search well away from the tourist places on the stalls and markets, you can find cheaper, but still prices are higher than in Thailand. For example, in may, I failed to find in Bali mango cheaper than 40000 rupees per kilogram, which is about 175 rubles, in Turkestan take even more expensive. And in Bangkok, at the same time in the supermarket and on the street local mango is from 25 baht per kilogram, which is 50 rubles. ...
