Just politely refuse their services, do not pay attention even if they become aggressive yourself looking for the correct bus and pay the cost of the driver, and only after the bus is going.

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. ...

Everyone knows that Bali is a Paradise. But few people know that in this Paradise there is another small Paradise. Or rather three small Paradise in Paradise. This is the Gili Islands. But in this story we will talk about only one of them is Gili air.
The majority of tourists vacationing in Bali, do not even suspect that there are some very interesting small Islands with no cars, go carts and horses and power outages. We subtracted the island before the trip and included it in your itinerary. It was two wonderful days of our Bali holiday.
Transfer to Gili can be purchased at any local travel Agency. Prices vary from RS 350 000 to infinity. The average asking 500,000 rupees per person. As we traveled to Gili air from Ubud, we, of course, needed for the transfer. Boats to the Gili Islands depart from the pier of Padang Bay and runs a huge number of them from various travel agencies. We went to a couple of such travel agencies and, of course, chose the cheapest option. But if we knew what lies ahead for the economy. Looking ahead, say: "do Not take transfer of the company Hangari!". On the appointed day and time, we, with all the suitcases and enthusiasm, waiting for your Shuttle and here it is! Chic minivent, appearance survived a nuclear explosion, which in addition to the four of us were only a couple from Korea and all. Gone with the wind, but got stuck in traffic and the driver decided to go round a roundabout way. Jungles, villages, roads and then the door of the trunk open and suitcases Korean couples fall on the road, and we continue to go. Of course after a few meters, the driver stopped and loaded them back, but the situation repeated itself two more times and it was fun. Upon arrival at the port we were met by a local de ...

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.
