    If your finances are limited, it is cheaper at times you can catch a taxi outside the airport. A very common taxi "Blue bird" (Blue Bird Taxi) usually carries the counter and cheaper public. It is possible to agree on a fixed price. A fixed price can be more profitable if you're new to the island and don't know the specifics of the road, and can make use of dishonest taxi drivers. But to agree on a fixed price before a trip, better agreeing a price on a piece of paper so that everyone can understand. On a motorcycle taxi, you can get even cheaper.
  • By taxi: coming from the airport you can the street network in taxis, called Public bemo. BEMO is followed in different cities of the island. Price depends on distance.

Transport in Bali. How to travel around the island?

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.

Riding without a meter are also possible, but the cost of the trip must be arranged in advance, even before the trips. Even better to negotiate the price by writing it on a piece of paper. Usually first named driver the price is two times higher than the real, so you should bargain.


Бемо на Бали BEMO in Bali

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.

Tourist buses

For visitors to the island organized movement between the main tourist centres on air-conditioned buses or minibase (tourist shuttle bus). For traveling long distances it is the most convenient form of transport. Routes and rates are fixed and the tickets should be bought a day in advance.

To obtain detailed information about itineraries and fares, book your trip you can travel agencies on the street, which is usually marked by the sign "Tourist information"

Rent a car or motorcycle

The traffic in Bali drives on the left. Rent-a-car is not the most sensible choice, given the style of driving local and wide roads on the island. If you decide to rent a car, check carefully and note at the conclusion of the agreement, all existing damage to the vehicle. Do not take a car without insurance. The cost of renting a car modest old car from 90 to 170 000 Rp 000 Rp per day. The alternative rent may be the rent a car with driver. But in this case you will have to pay about twice as much.

Renting a bike will cost you the sum of 50,000 rupees to 100,000 rupees.

How to control the car and the motorcycle, you must have the right (driver's license) international standard and the domestic Russian rights! In the car with you, their maybe no one to ask, but that doesn't mean they shouldn't be. When meeting on the road with the police in the absence of rights you can get rid of the "fine" at $ 15.

Assessing the scale of the disaster, and to be more precise, the size of the island, I realized that it is easier to live in different places for a few days, than each time to spend half a day on the road to dobirat where necessary. The solution was not quite correct because worn out to pack your bags every 4 days. But it was possible to identify the optimal place to stay.
All the same, the area Seminyak the most comfortable. But it is better he stays not in Seminyak, but a little above it, that is. There is chudestny village with very affordable housing and to Seminyak's doorstep, no more than 7 minutes on the bike. The biggest plus that this location allows partly to avoid the Balinese traffic jams during rush hour and saves a lot of time on the road, in whatever direction you are moving. And the place is calm, there are inexpensive, non-touristy, restaurants. Shops with nice local not tourist prices. And, of course, the district of Seminyak and Kuta are close enough that it was absolutely not boring neither day nor night. And Jimbaran is not something that would be right so far with location. 30-40 minutes maybe.
The truth is this location is suitable only for those who have already settled in Asia and is not afraid to ride a bike.

But if more and Northern part of the island you want to visit - it is necessary for a few days to stay in Ubud. All the same, road to Bali because of the traffic and exhaust fumes of hell. It is better to optimize the logistics and less time to spend on the road. ...
