Top 5 tips for visiting Bali

  1. On Transportation: Transportation is cheap in Bali, and the most convenient mode of transport is by car.  If you have the Grab app, you may book rides using the same app in Bali. An alternative is Gojek, another multi-service app providing transport.
  2. On Accommodation: Select an accommodation location based on your itinerary. ICYMI, Bali is a province with multiple cities within its vicinity. While transportation is cheap, it’s best not to waste time moving from one place to another. Into partying? Seminyak and Kuta is home to the nightlife in Bali. Planning daytrips? Ubud is located in the heart of the city, perfect for travelling. Into surfing? Canggu is the hub for this activity.
  3. On Food: Beware of your allergy triggers. Balinese cuisine is guaranteed to satisfy your hunger after a long day of exploring Bali. Just ensure to ask your server about the ingredients if you’re allergic to anything. Nuts or chili may be mainstays in Balinese and Indonesian cuisines.
  4. On Nature: Bali is home to active volcanoes, lots of nature, and animals that inhabit the island. Do not interact with wild and stray animals who may carry diseases or even steal your belongings. Let nature live on its own, and you should be fine.
  5. On Activities: Bali is rich in culture and destinations to visit, but don’t forget to relax during your stay! The island is also home to the best villas, yoga classes and massage services, so allot a day or two to just indulge in self-care. You’ll sure come back home rejuvenated from the trip!
