GOING AROUND BALI :
- Unlike my other out of the countries trip, going around Bali is thru a private car or van (*if you are in big group)
- There was no MRT or train system around, no jeepneys, nor tuktuk that would take you easily from one place to another.
- The best option would be hiring a private car that would tour you around Bali. You may contact my driver : SATRIA of BALI TOURS via Whatsapp +62 812-4675-3054
- The standard car rate is (IDR 450.000 / PHP 1,700 / USD 32 ) for 10 hours, this includes the driver, gas, toll, parking fees + a bottled water. See !!! it is super cheap! max per car is at least 4 pax (so we get to manage our expenses with almost just P450 – P500 per pax on this or USD 4.58)
- Your itinerary for the day depends on your liking and where you’d want to plan it
We’ll keep this updated on my next set of Bali Adventures. Let me know what stroke you the most? What type of traveller are you when it comes to accommodation?
