BALI QUICK GUIDE

There is no place quite like the 'Island of the Gods' that is Bali. With beautiful scenery, scorching sun, countless waves, and spirituality, it's no wonder that Bali is top of the pops for Australian holiday makers.  This island paradise has something for everyone.  

A touristy destination such as Bali seems an unlikely choice for those wanting to escape crowds, but there is plenty of serentity for those seeking solitude and prepared to get off the tourist trail.  Beyond the chaos of Kuta, the sophisticated shopping in Seminyak and the lounging in Legian, Bali has a diverse culture full of rituals, festivals and ancient culture. 

No matter which kind of Bali experience you're planning, Zoom can cover your trip with a range of plans.  You can minimise your costs with Medical Only cover, or choose to buy Comprehensive Travel Insurance for extra protection to cover things like travel delays and cancellation.

VISAS FOR BALI

The Indonesian Government has introduced a visa-free program for Australians.  If you’re travelling to Indonesia for a leisure holiday for less than 30 days, you do not need to apply for a Visa to enter Bali.
 
However, if you’re intending on staying longer than 30 days, you will need to apply for a visa on arrival (USD $35), this can be paid in cash or on card.  Alternatively, you can apply for this and other visas from an Embassy or Consulate of Indonesia.

It is important to note that your passport must be valid for a minimum of 6 months and your passport must have a minimum of 2 free pages available.

ON ARRIVAL

Ngurah Rai International Airport or Denpasar airport (DPS), is a large international airport located in the south of Bali.   It has become very ‘westernised’ so you can just follow the signs and line up according to appropriate signage at immigration.  You will need to put all your luggage and hand luggage through a scanner, so don’t be alarmed by this.
 
As you step outside the airport, you will see a swarm of drivers and hotel staff holding up name signs. Arranging a driver from back home, before you go to greet you on arrival with a friendly smile and a cool bottle of water is ideal, but if you didn’t pre-arrange a pick-up, just head towards a taxi service counter. Otherwise you'll be hounded by vocal drivers vying for your business, by opting for a metered taxi service, you can avoid rookie ripoffs.  Note that you will need to pay CASH to the driver so remember to have some local currency or get some out from the ATM.

GETTING AROUND

Pre-arranging a driver it is one of the most convenient, comfortable and cost effective ways to travel. Hiring motorbikes and scooters to get around is the most common mode of transport amongst both locals and tourists, but it’s important to keep your helmet on.  It’ll hurt less if you come off and keep your travel insurance policy alive. Getting around by taxi is cheap in Bali, but be sure to insist that the meter be turned on at the beginning of your ride.  Less regulated drivers may refuse to use a meter so put your negotiation skills to the test, just don’t accept the first price.
 

BEST TIME TO VISIT

Unpack your jeans, Bali is hot to trot all year-round with an average temperature of 32 degrees. April, May, June and September are optimal times to go if you want to avoid high season prices and crowds. High season is July and August, during the Easter holidays, and December and January during the Christmas and new year holiday period. The rainy season is typically October to March.
 

WHERE TO GO

As one of the most desired destinations on the planet, this paradise island of gods is diverse and has attractions for all types of travellers.  Choose your base carefully. When travelling to Bali it really is a case of knowing where to go, as each area offers a completely different experience. Colourful Kuta bustles with backpackers on a shoestring-budget; quieter high-end holiday makers tend to style it up at a luxury beach front dig in Seminyak; Nusa Dua offers plenty of water-sports and all-inclusive resort style options for families; while the cultural heart of Bali lies in Ubud for those seeking a richer, much earthier experience.

The choices are endless, so do your research.  Consider your Bali bucket list and who you’re travelling with.   If you’re looking for more than Bintang and beanbags, check out InBali’s bucket list.

MUST KNOW TIPS

You will sweat, a lot.  Play it safe by sticking to bottled water throughout your Bali stay. It is cheap and readily available.  Mosquito repellent is a friend in Bali and can be bought from most supermarkets and chemists. Beachwear doesn’t always cut it in Bali, many top-end bars and hotels could turn you away if you don’t cover up. Haggling and bartering is expected, particularly at markets. Tipping is common but not a must. Keep away from wild and stray animals as rabies and other diseases are a serious risk in Bali.  The legal system may seem confusing and contradictory in parts, but it’s best to just play by their rules.  It goes without saying but having anything to do with illicit drugs is a bad idea.
