What currency to take to Bali?

In tourist areas you can pay in US dollars, but will take them from you at not very advantageous rate, therefore it is always better to have a local currency. Preference is given hundred dollar bills issue after 2000, but a hundred-dollar bill series AB and CB of issue 2001 are practically not taken, series CA, CD and CF (2001) as well as DX and DH (2003) are accepted at significantly less favourable exchange rate (for fear to get a fake). On the banknotes with a value of less than $ 50, or having the traces of long use, the rate is also considerably lower than new banknotes. It is most advantageous to carry with them 50 or 100 dollars or euros, because the rates on them are more profitable than "trifle".

The Euro and refuse to accept (but not to the exchange). Exchange currency everywhere, as well as dollars.

Where to change currency in Bali?

Problems to exchange dollars or euros in Bali and in other tourist areas of Indonesia will not occur. The exchange offered by banks, official exchange offices, as well as an informal exchange in any shops.

The most favorable real exchange rate (without cheating) in cans. Banks are usually open from 08:00 to 15:00. Not to be deceived (or, rather, to reduce the probability of fraud to a minimum), we recommend you change money at a Bank or official exchange offices, working at or from banks.

A very popular exchange in the official or unofficial exchange offices which can be found at almost every step. But in such places there is always a chance to be deceived, and he is very big. If you change money in the exchanger informal, you are there almost certainly try to cheat. Prerequisites to the hype is inflated exchange rate. Usually in such overvaluation include a Commission that can reach 30%, but it is not advertised to tourists, as your money will not be in the hands of the money-changers. Then cancel it and get your money back is almost impossible. But even if you make sure that there are no hidden fees in the exchange rate no, you try to cheat during the process of transferring money. Here popular the traditional "folding" money, and sometimes there are even calculators that consider wrong, of course, in favor of the money-changers.

To keep cheating to a minimum in exchange, never give your money up front, even for supposedly checking for falsity, count the money in front of money changers right on the table, double check the amount of exchange on your calculator.

Each exchange office should give you a check. If not given, ask. A check will need when leaving for a reverse exchange.

Plastic cards

Plastic credit cards American Express, Visa, Diners, Visa Electron, Master Card, JCB are used widely. They take hotels, restaurants, supermarkets and shops. Money when the card is removed without a fee.

Withdrawing money from a plastic card at the "profitability" is not inferior to exchange cash dollars or euros if you withdraw cash from ATMs in banks. ATMs are quite common (especially in larger cities and on Bali), but still better to use the ATM in a large international Bank. Commission for cash withdrawal there is, but ATM it is different from RS 50 to 100. In the ATM small and unknown Bank money it is better not to remove, as you can get to the extortionate Commission. Usually in one operation, you can withdraw not more than 1 500 000 rupees and often even less.

Traveler's checks

Traveler's checks are quite common and you can use them on the trip, especially in tourist areas, including Bali. The most common, American Express, are accepted almost everywhere. Chickens on them a little less profitable than the exchange of cash, but more secure.


Officially, in Indonesia no tip and service charge is almost always included in the bill. But traditionally, if a service you like, it is customary to tip and thank the staff, leave a little extra over the bill in a café or restaurant, leave a reward to the taxi driver.

Usually in restaurants, the tip can range from 5 to 10 percent of the total bill, but do not leave more than 3 dollars. The porter can give 500 - 2000 rupees, the driver 3000 rupees, guide 4000 - 5000 rupees. In a taxi with the trip meter can round the cost up to thousands in a big way.

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. ...
