Good To Know Before Going To Bali

  • Shop in supermarkets at fix prices (like Hardy's in Sanur), if you do not see any fix prices on the products (e.g. on the markets) bargain, if you have white skin they could say 10x prices, which is almost impossible to bargain the the normal price
  • Restaurants (even smallers) are good next to the beach and main streets (in Sanur and Kuta), choose Indonesian specialties, if you like world kitchen, Nasi Goreng (at price 35k Ind. Rupia) could be a good choice (just a an example in Sanur area is Randy's)
  • Choose a personal tourist guide, if you travel with your travel agency it cost about 90 EUR/day but if you contact directly (via e-mail) a guide it costs only 65 USD for a whole day, a tourist guide includes travelling on the island (like a taxi) and guidance (our personal guide was “Ketu” – his english was quite good, and he is a really trustworthy guy)
