So many places to stay in Bali and it depends on where you like. It happened that we found a place in Denpasar which the airport was near. It was cheap with a swimming pool for 2,500,000 IDR. Communication is through WhatsApp so I was able to directly post my concern.

Additional Bali Travel Expenses

You need gasoline for your transportation and I can tell that the price of gasoline was not that expensive in Bali compared to the Philippines.

As I mentioned earlier, we sometimes splurge in a restaurant and a good Warung. A Warung is a local eatery in Bali that you can see in the streets.

You can also book at Klook for your Bali dining experience:

Visiting temples is a must in Bali so you need to pay entrance fees or give some donations.

How We Travel Around Bali?

Everyone has their own way of traveling in Bali. Since we spent 30 days on the island, we don’t stress ourselves following the must-visit tourist destinations in Bali.

Everything was DIY (Do-It-Yourself) as we had our own motorbike. This way, it’s easy for us to get around. We are more water enthusiasts so almost every day we go to different beaches and swim with our snorkels, masks, and fins.

What to Bring in Bali?

Our intention in Bali is to go to the beach and go snorkeling or free diving. So bringing things in Bali is simply going to a summer destination. Bali has a tropical weather so get ready with your beautiful dress for females and t-shirts and shorts for males.

  • Mask and snorkel
  • Swimming fins
  • Swim wears
  • Dresses and underwears (females)
  • T-shirts, trousers and shorts (males)
  • sun block lotion
  • International driver’s license (for motorbike rental)
  • Open line smartphone with a Waze app (GPS app)
  • Toiletries
  • Hats and sunglasses

What’s the Budget for Bali Travel?

As a solo traveler, I always bring US$500 or at least PHP20,000 with me and it depends on where I stay the cheapest way possible. As a couple, US$1000 to US$1500 is good. But it all depends on how you splurge your money. At least, we experienced living like a local in Bali, Indonesia.

Other Reminders

For Filipinos who go to Bali for a short-stay vacation, it’s preferable to take tours with a van transportation as each tourist spot are far from each other. It’s more convenient and more comfortable to get a good sleep while traveling. You can rent a motorbike if you have more time in Bali.
