    After the dinner, to those who love shopping, there are many shopping complex for you along Jl Kartika Plaza and Jl Bakuns Sari in Kuta. When walk along Jl kartika Plaza, I spot this donkey cart which carry passengers to have a quick walk around Kuta town. I see they are in good business, most family travellers take a ride.

    Enjoy swimming in the hotel's pools

    by DaHongHua Written Mar 26, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In 2011, all the 4 hotels have their swimming pool as one of their facility and attraction. Some has only one pool and some has more pools up to 3 pools. We enjoy to spend some of our time, leisuring in the water. The pool of the Flora Kuta Hotel is among the smallest but the cleanliness is perfect. The Inna Grand Beach Hotel has 3 pools and among the noisiest as its has too many Chinese guests. The pool of the Meslasti Bungalow and Spa is among the quitest, less guest want to swim that day, we enjoy the whole pool. The Kuta Beach Club's pool is full of laughing, there are parent coached their kids to swim and I had a cup of coffee from the pool cafe.

    ask for stronger WIFI signal location

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In Bali hotels, you can request for the password in order to have the WIFI connection. Remember to ask for a place with stronger WIFI signal, the hotel staff would help to point it for you, it is either at the pool side, the coffee huts or near the staircase. Just follow and you get better result.

    Bali Paintings

    by DaHongHua Written Mar 11, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Bali Art and Bali Painting Studios are scattered around tourist spots in Kuta, Tanah Lot, Ubud, Sanur, Legian and Seminyak. The art piece, is priceless, if you like it, you can bargain for a price you think it worth and have it. If you have enough time, you can shop around as most of the art are based on the same theme produce by different artists, some of if are in fine quality. Travel around Bali, you would noticed that their workshops are at the country side, where the artists can paint in a more relaxation atmosphere.

    Bali FRUIT

    by DaHongHua Written Feb 23, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When I was in Bali in 2011, I have no chance to go to the market but future trip to Bali I would love to plan a visit to have a look at what is local market like and what the fruit and food stuff the vendors offer.
    Travelling along the road in Bali island, I come across many fruit stalls along the road side. The fruits are arrange like many small hills. They are colourful and very attractive.
    The Bali driver felt reluctant to stop, maybe to avoid side effect of the sweeten that attracts insects.
    I do not tried the fruit but for many times, I ordered fruit juice during my meal, the avocado drink is highly recommended.

    Rafting - refreshing adventure

    by Tripack Updated Jan 23, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    I really enjoy rafting since my great Australian rafting expecience on the Tully river. So Bali offer me another opportunity to ride 16km of white water on Telagawaja river with numerous rapids and small waterfall... what an exhilarating and refreshing adventure. No timeout during 2 hours as you will need to paddle, reverse paddle, bump, scream, laugh, fishing some overboard paddler as I did... no worries you will be safe with your experienced and very professional guide. At the end you will be rewarded by a last uphill walk accross rice fields before taking a warm shower at the camp base and enjoying a large buffet to retreive forces.

    So let's go rafting!

    Ready to paddle! Shower time! Rafting in the jungle! The camp base

    Nature

    Bali is a very fertile island thanks to irrigation and volcanic soil. Nature is generous and you will be able to taste some nice exotic sweet fruits as the snake fruit (the scaly skin is like a snake) or the smelly but tasty durian. Enjoy the scenery.

    Dive Now!

    by Tripack Updated Jan 15, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    Balinese underwater world is amazing. Around Bali you will find some great diving spot as Kubu, Tumlaben, US Liberty wreck, Amed, Blue Lagoon, Padang BaiNusa, Shark Point, Candidasa, Nusa Penida, Manta Point...

    Colorful soft coral garden contrast with the black volcanic sand and impressive volcanic walls (called drop off) full of marine life. My great day & night dives let me meet many of locals as anemone, clams, ringed piperfish, scorpion fish, blue spotted stingray, puffer fish, nudibranch, clown "Nemo" fish, lion fish, box fish, pigmy seahorse, trumpet fish, garden eel, bird wrasse, angel fish, octopus, cattle fish, moray, barraccuda, spider crab, orang outan shrimp, arlequin shrimp, humphead parrot fish, napoleon, mola mola (sunfish), manta and even an unexpected swordfish!

    The "cleaning station" at the house reef of my resort was one of my favourite dive... just let your hand be taken care by dozens of little friendly shrimps for a free funny and tickle mancure ;-)

    So Dive now, work later ;-)

    VISIT THE HARD ROCK CAFE BALI

    by DennyP Written Sep 13, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Right across the road from the Northern end of Kuta beach is The Hard Rock Cafe Bali easy to see with the large guitar that stands out front....being a really hot day this was just the place for a cold beer and as I always do my best to visit any Hard Rock Cafe in any city wherever I may be.
    This was on my list of things to do here in Kuta Beach....as usual with any Hard Rock Cafe the staff are always extremely courteous and after a quick chat I exchanged a few spare "Sydney" guitar pins that I was carrying for that reason...The bar here has a huge wooden guitar above the bar and is the standout when you walk in although at the moment under renovation I think the interior is going to be changed somewhat..There is a large amount of musical memorabilia located within the dining and bar area and as is the case with all Hard Rocks, they certainly have their share of some great memorabilia on display here...I took many photos and then visited the Rock Shop to buy my Bali Hard Rock Cafe guitar pin for my collection.
