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 on routes 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.

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. ...

Hi all. When I was going to go to Bali a lot, watched and read and wondered about the food. You can eat food for local or not? In the end I went to the local market and together with the residents ate. Was very tasty and not expensive. With stomachs too, all was well.

Bali 2019, just struck us with its beauty. For the first time in Bali, we never have been. But in this journey through Bali, we have experienced off the island and filmed a huge number of interesting places. A separate line of this Bali trip was the waterfalls. Every waterfall in Bali is unique and not like the rest. Nature, which is simply beyond words.
In this issue, we decided to go to the waterfalls of Bali near Ubud. Who did not know, Ubud is the center of Bali island, around which a great number of waterfalls, jungles, monkeys, temples and everything you need for relaxation and tranquility.
First visited the falls Tucked Cheung. A very beautiful place. Made my way to him through the gorge, under a light rain, but when he went away from there in the pouring rain Balinese! On the second waterfall came all wet and it was a real adventure! In the pouring rain, with umbrellas, four tourists going to the falls. The sight of something else! In General, see, don't forget to put the huskies, subscribe to the channel and be sure to write a review about the walk to the waterfall with umbrellas))))))
Of course, where do without food. Food in Bali is different, but in this issue, we dabble a bit with the oysters and that's a real buzz.
