Good Chinese Restaurants

by peter07

I LOVE Chinese food, and am wondering if Kuta has some good Chinese restaurants.

Hi There! We heard the Golden Lotus has the best Cantonese food in Kuta.You can also try some Chinese dishes at the night market near the post office. Maybe BesarRahasia could add more info for you. Enjoy Your Stay In Bali!

RE: Good Chinese Restaurants

Hi peter,

Food in Bali stinks...either it's expensive and overpriced or it's cheap touristfood and inedible....sometimes it's all the above.

Finding good chinese food here is almost impossible.Certainly in Kuta...a real tourist area.

If you have the money....at the dynasty Hotel there is a good restaurant.When i was there they had a special on lobsters.Was actually cheaper than in Jimbaran...ended eating here quite often.
Anyway food was ok, but very expensive. Can't hold a candle to a good chinese restaurant like in Jakarta.

Travel Tips for Kuta

The Batik of Bali

by venteeocho

The Batik of Bali provides another venue of showing the artistic excellence of the Balinese people. Their beautiful designs, inspired by religious mythologies to everyday encounters, spread throughout the world. Originally stimulated by Javanese motifs, dominated by wayang and other mythological characters, contemporary batik artists have also experienced artistic development that parallels that of paintings. Modern batik artists express themselves through various subjects, from objects of nature such as birds or fish to daily activities such as cremation (ngaben) procession or tourist attractions as well as religious and mythological stories, accompanied by modern interpretation.

The Ikat and Double Ikat are two amazing techniques that the Balinese have perfected. A piece of Ikat cloth is woven in such a way that the ink is 'tied' (which is what 'ikat' literally translates to) in one of the two threads. A Double Ikat recursively repeats this technique; both threads contain ink. The ink will bleed to its neihboring area, and the result is a piece of cloth with distinctive, subtle patterns.

The village of Tenganan is well known for its superb double ikat work. A good piece of double ikat may take months to complete, and it usually belongs to the family heirloom. Certain patterns, such as the black and white, checkered, double ikat are considered to have protective powers against the evil spirits. Thus, they are used a lot to cover or to dress statues that guard the entrance to a temple or sacred masks like Barong.

A piece of ikat shirt or a batik wrap-around, each can be had for as little as a few dollars, are must have. Local garment shops will gladly supply you with these or any other kinds of Balinese garments that might interest you.

pirate dvd

by aalayaa about everywhere in kuta

we know it's illegal but you can find this everywhere in kuta.
selling pirate dvd is a boom now, foreigner buy hundreds of them so it's a big bussiness.
the price is as low as rp 7000 (less then 1 usd) each.
they even give you bonus, like buy 10 get 1 free. the quality is sometimes as good as the original dvd but some of them are terrible. just avoid new movies, they're usually not good quality. dvds rp 7000 (less than 1 usd)

Unique looking home decorative items

by Arfah

Shopping is one of the things to do in Kuta...especially shopping for home decorative items. You can find many shops here selling unique looking decorative items for your home...like the one in the picture.

I'm not so sure what's the function of those colourful plate looking things in the picture...merely placed at home as accessories maybe. They're also sold separately and come in many sizes. I think they can be used as a tray for fruits...candles...and other things. They come in many colours as well.

I found the same thing in KL...sold at RM200...whereas it's only around Rp100,000 (that's about MYR35.00) if you bargain hard enough.

"Beaches Were The Last Thing On My Mind"

Kuta as you may know is the most popular of the Bali beaches and is famous for it's surfing and nightlife. Originally Kuta was small but it's beaches and surf brought thousands of tourists to the area and it began to develop. Before long Kuta had grown so much the area of Kuta had reached Legian and Seminyak and between the 3 of them are the biggest area in Bali.

It is the most crowded tourist resort in Bali and because of this a lot of down sides come with it. When walking on any street in Kuta you will be hassled by people selling taxis, food, clothes etc. This really gets quite annoying. The beaches are just as bad with people approaching you every couple of metres trying to rent you surfboards etc. It is advised to get a resort with a private beach to get a break from this.

Other than this Kuta is a great place with great beaches, a variety of shopping malls, decent food joints and other attractions i.e. bungy ball and waterpark near the centre.

My original perception of Kuta was that it would be similar to greasy Spanish resorts and for this reason I decided on staying in Sanur. After staying in Sanur for a bit I was really glad to get to Kuta as the atmosphere was completely different and there was a lot more to do. I was not in Bali for the beaches and only visited the beaches once in the 6 days to do some surfing (better beaches in South-East Asia). If I returned to Bali I would probably stay in Kuta for the nightlife, shops, restaurants but it is a must to get out and see the rest of Bali and enjoy Kuta when you arrive back from your day trips.
