    Have a Brewskie with the Locals

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    the locals are very friendly if you are willing to talk to them. we stayed at the beachside stall of our surfing teacher and they have a mini shack at kuta beach too which you can order food, sodas, fruit drinks and beer and while watching for ther sunset, we had a couple of brewskies (beers) with the locals drinking bintang beer bought from them for 20,000 rupiah a pop (not that expensive as a bottle of bintang beer in convenience stores sells for 15,000 rupiah) and engaged in chit chat about bali in general.

    Christmas Tree Made of Beer Cans

    by machomikemd Updated Dec 24, 2013

    if you happen to be walking along Kuta Beach in the Vicinity of the Discovery Mall this December of 2013, you would notice a large Christmas Tree Made from aluminum Beer Cans at the back of the mall made by the San Miguel Beer Company that is 18 meters (62 feet tall) and also a slightly smaller Carlsberg Beer Christmas Tree (16 meters tall or 52 feet tall) at the front of the Mall facing Waterbom Park. and both are made with aluminum cans, truly a sight for sore eyes as you can have your pictures taken with these beer can christma trees.

    address is: Kartika Plaza St,, Kuta, Bali 80361, Indonesia

    Walking through Poppies Gang II, we saw two locals practising their songs which they had written . One of them was pretty good with the guitar. The song written by them sounded melodious and Harry joined in and had a go. It was quite an experience.

  • $1 Haircuts!!!

    There are many barbers around Kuta and especially Denpasar. Although they may not be the most air conditioned or comfortable places on earth they give really cheap and really good haircuts!

    The professionalism is competent, but dont expect any fancy or lastest fashion styles :).

    I advise you to take a haircut in Bali, sort of as a souvenir that you can bring around with you everywhere you go for the next few weeks.

    Fantastic Cuts!

    Motorcycling used to be the best way to travel on Bali but with the increase in traffic it has lost many of its charms and become increasingly dangerous. Be careful and stick to the back roads.

    Driving in Bali is not for the faint-hearted. Vehicles and creatures of every size, shape and description charge onto the road out of nowhere. The traffic is horrendous on the main highways. Drive slowly and carefully and beware of the trucks at night. Road construction sites are not marked and few cyclists have reflectors. The condition of road networks has considerably improved in recent years, however, and driving off the beaten track is one of the best ways to discover Bali. Check your fuel gauge regularly as there are few gas stations away from the main roads. Small roadside fuel shops, indicated by a "Premium" sign, sell gasoline for the bit more than the Pertamina stations.

    Psychadelic Mushroom Omlettes

    by corsakti Updated Jul 26, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I am not here to condone drug use or offend anyone, but this is an interesting and special thing Kuta offers that many members might find appealing.

    While most tourists go to Kuta for the Western style resorts and discotechs and shopping malls, there is much more to the city. One little-known gem is that you can purchase omlettes full of psychlosybin(sp?) mushrooms for very little money. I was in Bali on a tour and it was our tour guide who let us know about this. The group talked it over and unanimously decided we would try them out.

    It might be worthwhile to note that while I was 24 at the time, all the other ladies in our tour group were much older than me. Most were in their 40's and the eldest was 63. So this wasn't just some 'spring break crazy party' type of an experience.

    I don't remember exactly where the omlettes were purchased but natives will be able to tell you. We each ate one and walked together on the most gorgeous expanse of beach I could imagine in my wildest dreams (Kuta is known for its amazing beaches).

    To say the least, the omlettes were extremely powerful and potent, causing extreme hallucinations probably beyond what any of us expected. But there is nothing about the experience that I would change. It was truly amazing. If you are interested in experiencing something like this in a place where it is not only safe and legal but also ridiculously gorgeous, you might be interested in looking into it.
