Its just been few weeks since we are back from Bali and we cant help but miss it so badly! We have been totally mesmerized by its beauty and also the kindhearted people.
A week was too less to explore and unravel the beautiful Bali, but we tried our best to explore the best possible places.
If you are in Bali, you definitely have to hire the scootsy which is like our Indian Scooty to travel and explore the different localities. Its the best and cheapest mode of transport if you want to explore the remotest corners and the hidden places in Bali. We paid around 250,000 IDR (approx. INR 1100) for 5 days for Scootsy which is pretty much a great deal.
TIP: Please dont act like a typical Indian tourist and hire a car just because you dont want to get tanned ???? Whats the fun in travelling around in a car, you will get stuck in traffic and cant go and park near the beaches too!
We had a gala time travelling around on a scootsy all 5 days, long and far exploring the town, google maps being our best friend.
Disadvantages: Damaged bums and swollen back. But a good night sleep cures it all
So here is the travel itinerary we sketched, changed, revised and ultimately finalised on these few places only on the day we had to travel (Being Spontaneous :P):
We landed in Bali around 3 pm and took us about an hour to reach our Hotel. We were very tired and sleepy but still very excited for our journey to unfold ahead!
We freshened up and around 5 pm, we decided to walk upto the nearest beach, Double Six Beach. We were hungry too and couldnt wait to pounce on the local cuisine. We definitely under-estimated the distance of the beach from our Hotel, because it took u a good 20 mins walk to reach the beach only to be welcomed by drizzles. The precious sunset that we came for was nowhere to be seen..phew!
