Yes, tourism in Bali is very developed. Fortunately, the island is big enough (the World’s 108th biggest island by land area, in fact) to easily get away from the crowds.Bali is a destination everyone can enjoy. It has gorgeous 5-star resorts, rich distinctive culture, sacred temples & architecture, sandy beaches, surf-worthy waves, lively nightlife, mountain views, volcano trekking, exciting shopping etc. Not to mention, it’s also the gateway to the vast far east islands of Indonesia.Traveling to Bali for the first time?

You can fly direct from major cities in Southeast Asia, East Asia & Australia, as well as select cities in the Middle East & Europe.Ferries connect Bali to the islands of Lombok and Java, making it possible to travel to Bali from Jakarta, Yogyakarta & Surabaya etc. on land and sea connections.Find cheap flightsDo I need a visa to visit Bali, Indonesia?Citizens of 168 countries and territories may enter Indonesia without a visa for tourism/transit purposes. Tourists can stay for a maximum of 30 days.Countries that enjoy visa-free entry to Indonesia include The Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, EU Member States… Visit this Wikipedia page for a comprehensive list of countries with visa-free access.For a hassle-free trip, make sure that you are able to provide the following typical requirements at the immigration checkpoint:Valid passport not expiring within 6 months.Confirmed flight ticket/s back to your home country or onward destination that you are allowed to enter.Evidence that you have sufficient funds to cover the entire duration of your visit.Proof of accommodation — Hotel reservations or letter of invitation from your friend/family residing in Bali.Evidence that you are visiting for travel or holiday purposes only.Remember to always check for changes in the visa policy of any country that you want to visit. You can find official visa information at the Imigrasi Indonesia website.Indonesia tourist visa for FilipinosFilipinos/Pinoy tourists do not need a visa to enter Indonesia granting the purpose is tourism or transit. Philippine passport holders get a maximum stay of 30 days.Simply show up at the immigration checkpoint and get your passport stamped.Keep in mind that all countries have the right to refuse entry to any person even if they are eligible for the free tourist visa or have a valid visa on hand at the border.At the very least, have these on hand at the immigration checkpoint: Return/onward ticket, hotel reservations & tours/attraction tickets that you have pre-booked online.These documents will help to convince immigration officers that you are really are visiting as a tourist, NOT for work, and you are able to fund the entire duration of your trip.Philippines-Manila to BaliFrom Manila, direct flights to Bali are operated by Cebu Pacific, Philippine Airlines & AirAsia. Travel time from Manila to Bali by flight is around 4 hours.For more options, try searching flight connections via Jakarta, Singapore, or Kuala Lumpur.There is no time zone difference between The Philippines and Bali.How to get around Bali?The entire island of Bali does not have a convenient public transport system. The best way to get around the main sights is by arranging your own transport or joining a group tour.To travel between the main tourist/urban areas in Kuta, Legian, Seminyak, Ubud, Sanur, Nusa Dua etc., you can go by taxi, Grab/GO-JEK, tourist shuttle, or by local transport, which includes ojek (motorcycle taxi) or bemo (shared minivan).Private car charterThis is the best way to get around the island. Full-day charters are very affordable costing only IDR 448,000 / PHP 1,655 / USD 32. The price includes up to 10 hours full day private car rental, fuel & driver fees. Each car can seat 5 people (or more depending on your choice of vehicle).Pre-book hereGrab and GO-JEKGrab and GO-JEK are the most popular ride-hailing apps in Bali. Use the app to enjoy affordable and convenient rides around the main tourist areas.Get Grab for iOSAndroidHow to get Grab fare estimates in BaliThis is very useful if you want to make a pre-trip budget plan.STEP 1: Open the Grab app on your phone (use the links above to download).STEP 2: Tap on the “Enter pick-up point” searchbox. Then, “Select location from map”.STEP 3: Manually locate Kuta/Legian/Seminyak/Ubud/Sanur/Nusa Dua on the map. It’s a bit of an effort but don’t worry, you only have to do this once.STEP 4: Choose the pick-up and drop-off points.Tourist ShuttleFor transport between the different tourist areas in Bali. Getting from Kuta to Ubud, for example, an excellent way to go is by booking transfers with Perama Tour & Travel, which serves a wide range of destinations in Bali. Their service is affordable and quite reliable.Go to websiteFor transfers between Kuta, Legian, Seminyak, Jimbaran, Nusa Dua, Sanur & Ubus, check out the Kura-Kura Bus. The one-way fare starts at IDR 20,000 per person. They also sell 1-Day, 3-Day and 7-Day passes (unlimited rides) for IDR 100,000 / IDR 150,000 / IDR 250,000 respectively.Go to websiteGetting from the airport to Bali centerLocated on the west coast of South Bali, the airport sits between Kuta and Jimbaran. Despite the short 5-7 km drive to most hotels in Kuta, travel time usually takes 15 minutes or up to 30 minutes because of heavy traffic. To Legian or Seminyak, travel time is usually 30 minutes to 1 hour. To Ubud, travel time is around 1 hour and 30 minutes.The most convenient transport from the airport to the main hotel areas/tourist centers is by taxi, private car transfer or Grab/GO-JEK (ride-hailing apps). If you are traveling light, you can also get an OJEK (motorcycle taxi with driver).By private car charter — Enjoy hassle-free transfers with hotel drop-off/pick-up, refreshing towel and mineral water included. The one-way price to Kuta starts at IDR 90,000 per car (seats up to 4 people). To Legian, Seminyak, Kerobokan or Sanur, the price is IDR 146,000. To Ubud or Tanah Lot, the price is IDR 224,000.Pre-book hereBy taxi — Fixed fares are posted on the ticket counter found at the domestic and international terminals. The taxi fare to Kuta costs IDR 80,000 per way.By public transport — The public bus service, Trans Sarbagita, is the only bus company allowed to enter the airport. There are 3 routes that operate at the airport. Unforutnately, none of them are convenient because they stop at major road and intersections, away from the main hotel areas. Here are the bus routes: Airport-Tabanan (Fare: IDR 7,000 per person); Airport-Nusa Dua (Fare: IDR 3,500 per person); Airport-Batubulan (Fare: IDR 3,500 per person).What currency to carry when traveling to Indonesia?Indonesian Rupiah (abbreviated as IDR or Rp) is the official currency of Indonesia. Thus, you’ll need Indonesian Rupiah for your expenses in Bali. You should be able to change your USD, GBP, EUR, AUD, CAD, SGD, MYR & other major currencies easily at most banks/money exchange stalls. Try to avoid changing huge sums at the airport because branches found in the city usually offer more favorable rates.Better yet, withdraw IDR bills at an ATM when you arrive in Indonesia. I use my ATM card a lot when I travel because it’s way more convenient than to worry about what currency to bring and exchange. Because banks charge a fee (usually USD 5 or more) per withdrawal, I make sure to withdraw large amounts instead of doing multiple smaller transactions.A great way to minimize bringing/exchanging cash is by using a credit card and pre-booking hotels, tours, transport etc. online. I opt to pay in my home currency, if available. That way, I know exactly how much is charged to my account.Exchanging Philippine Peso to Indonesian RupiahYou can get the best rates by withdrawing from ATMs or finding a way to exchange your pesos to Indonesian Rupiah before leaving the Philippines. Try to avoid carrying large sums of Philippine Pesos when traveling abroad. According to BSP rules, a person may only bring out a maximum of PHP 10,000.Another option is to bring USD or any major currency instead.Remember to check if your bank requires you to activate your card for international withdrawals. Your card might be useless otherwise. For example, Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) requires me to call their 24-hour hotline to activate my Cirrus ATM card before I travel abroad. On the other hand, My Unionbank debit cards (Visa and Mastercard) does not need activation to withdraw money abroad.How to book cheap flights to Bali?If you are flying to Bali within the next 2-3 months, the general rule to spend less on flights is by booking sooner rather than later. In case you are booking well ahead of your trip, keep a lookout for airline promo fares & seat sales.The easy way to find cheap flights that you can book right now is to use flight search engines.

Aside from what’s listed on the guide, you can check out the tours listed on Klook and GetYourGuide. Get a private car if you want less hassles planning the trip. For packages including airfare & hotel, I don’t have any recos. You may want to check packages offered by the airlines.Reply Start A TripSee travel guides and blogs about the Philippines and beyond.
