Taxis whenever you want
As our hotel was located outside Senggigi Beach center, sometimes we made it to the center on foot and took a taxi back to the hotel. No problem ! Taxi are always kindly waiting for you and are very cheap. Discuss and fix the price before leaving though.
there are, so far i know, the following trips to arange:
1. 3days-2night up to the summit: very hard, just for people in good condition and for fighters who want to go to their limit. i did it, so you can belive me. I recomend it very much.
2. 3days-2night without summit. also very hard. well, you miss the summit, but you will have nonetheless a veeery nice trek. besides, alot of people who book the summit do not made it up there, because it is realy very hard.
3. 2days-1night. up to the rim, stay for the night and down. you get the amazing view from the rim. its worth it.
Senggigi: Central Senggigi
NOTE: This was circa 2001. Things may have changed since.
If you are staying at Senggigi, then this is where you will be hanging out at least once. All the restaurants, diving centres, nightlife and shops are here. The place was pretty sedated - quiet during the day and even more so at night (save for some guys hanging around with their bikes, the town was pretty much deserted) The town was prepared for a tourism boom that never came. Much of Senggigi Square Complex remained unoccupied, giving the entire area the closest thing to a ghost town feel.
There were plenty of boutiques selling colourful sarongs, cosmetic jewelries and potteries/artefacts, along the street. None of buzz and cries along the streets of Bali. The entire place just felt lazy.
And I recalled there was a post office and an old but functional grocery shop at the northern edge of town.
