Things to Do

Getting Around Bali

There are many different ways of getting around Bali. By far the most popular and accessible form of transport these days is the moped. Modern mopeds are economical, automatic, very ergonomical, and should all be fitted with silencers, and hence not make the wretched explosive sound that they would have done fifteen years ago. In general you should pay around 3USD a day for rental. A liter of petrol costs you (at time of writing) 7500 Rupiah, or around half a US dollar. It is cheaper to fill up from Pertamina petrol stations as the fuel sold on the roadside in bottles could be diluted as is always more expensive. A full tank in most mopeds is about three or four liters, and this should be enough to drive you nearly from on side of Bali to the other! Always be sure to get insurance and tick the insurance box on the paper carbon copy of your rental agreement. Without insurance you could be liable for unto 1000 US dollars fees in the event of fire or theft. Also ask your rental man to fix you up with a short term license. These work for some road checks, but to be sure you should try and arrange an International Drivers License from your country before departing for Indonesia. Normally this is just simple paperwork and a cheap fee paid at your local post office. Helmets are compulsory so be sure to ask your rental guy for one, otherwise you’ll get pulled over and fined at the first opportunity.

The second preferred form of local transport is the bemo. This is a small and cramped van that can squeeze over 16 bodies in. You’ll be amazed at how well locals can pack these bemos with people, livestock, agricultural produce, kids, and so on. The ride will be bumpy, surprisingly cozy when fully squished in amongst rotund elderly ibus, probably confusing since it is almost impossible to see anything other than the people packed around you and hence not see out the windows or get your bearings, but it is a valuable cultural experience that should be lived at least once or twice. The bottom line is they are very cheap, but not always easy to figure out the routes or times unless you already know from past experience or from a local. Most bemo drivers upon seeing a bule (Westerner) will immediately try and rent it out privately to you and often ask for more money than it would cost you to hire a car and driver for the day.

Private cars and drivers are the preferred means for those wishing for luxury and who don’t mind spending some money. Simply hire a driver and car (usually in shifts of up to ten hours), and tell them where you want to go. Be thoughtful towards other road users and tell your driver you’ll tip him if he drives pelan pelan (slowly and responsibly), since you are considered to be in an exclusive and executive type of locomotion when using these hired cars, and locals will drive as fast as possible and force other drivers off the road because they think that is what is expected from them – so just remind them your on holiday and you’re not in any hurry, and things should be fine.

Taxis are a good bet for getting simply from A to B and can be found all over Bali. Make sure the driver puts the meter on and you won’t get ripped off. The ride is usually fairly smooth and direct.

Tours in Bali

There are numerous activities on offer in the fun-packed adventure island of Bali. It’s not just beers and sunsets to be had. Why not try out Bali whitewater rafting at the spectacular Ayung river gorge. The experience is truly exhilarating. The river is deep and shallow and winds away lending its way to small waterfalls and rapids. Not only is the Bali whitewater rafting well established, but you will be led by the experienced and dedicated team, who also operate other tours in Bali such as Bali cycling tours and mountain treks. The first ever whitewater rafting in Bali took place along the banks of the Ayung river, and apart from having great rapids, especially after heavy rain, there are spectacular views of the jungle canopy and interesting flora and fauna all along the way.

Bali cycling tours are also gaining popularity and there are some excellent tracks up in the slopes that offer a fun but not too technically demanding cycle. You will be rewarded by plenty of fresh air, great views from the vantage points that you gave to cycle up to first and you will also be away from crowds, traffic, and pollution. The local guides also give you much information regarding Balinese rural life, religion, and customs. Being the Island of a thousand temples, you will no doubt cross some interesting edifices and to your surprise will discover temples perched in all sorts of places, and not necessarily just on flat ground.

Another classic Bali tour that really puts you in touch and perspective with the island is trekking up the slopes of either Gunung Batur or Gunung Agung. Gunung Batur’s summit sits at a respectable 1,717 meters above sea level, and is truly one of Bali’s natural wonders. Gunung Agung’s summit sits at a lofty height and towers over all Bali’s other summits. The climb is not as difficult as it may seem but it takes a certain level of stamina, fitness, and perseverance. The climb starts off at about 2am and you reach the summit around sunrise. It is essential to do the climb before the sun gets too high, or else the going will get tough. Also remember to report to the local police station at Selat before the expedition and that it is compulsory to take a guide with you at all times.

There are many more tour options in Bali. One is the fabulous Menjangan Island tour. This involves venturing into west Bali’s national park, and also taking a boat out to a small coral island surrounded by Bali’s clearest and most marine rich waters. Diving and snorkeling enthusiasts really must try this out as it is also one of the only places in Bali where you can experience a drop-off reef that drops vertically from 3meters down to approximately 30 meters and is alive with fishes and corals.
