Bali Warnings and Dangers

  • Airport Shops -overpriced

    Ok, the guidebooks are correct. Get all of your shopping done in town prior to leaving. While the airport is not the dump that I had read about, they probably try and keep it clean by trying to sell you overpriced gifts here. The food was reasonable for an airport but the gift shops had some scary prices. Like most other airports they guide you...

The official cab has a blue...

  • Hotel Prices in USD and Paid in...

    The biggest game, which all the hotels play is the setting up of the USD rate very far apart from the offical exchange rate , while charging your card, finally you end up paying not the USD price, but atleast 10% higher price on exchange manipulation. Never buy the hotel in USD, but always in the local currency and pay in the local currency. Best...

Top 10 Paddleboarding Beaches: Bali

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

In the middle of Indonesia, Bali has long been known for its lush vegetation and temples, but it also has a growing following as a surf destination. While many tourists flock to the Kuta area near the airport, we suggest some of the slightly calmer, but much less crowded, beaches to the north, like Balian and Medewi. On the opposite side, Sanur is a great spot to check out for SUP.
