In major areas like Kuta, Seminyak or Sanur, you can walk around by foot quite easily. The distance between one touristic area to another can be quite far at times, and the heat, traffic, and sidewalk conditions can be stressful. If your hotel or villa is not very near to the beach or restaurants, then you need some form of transportation to get there. Almost everywhere on Bali, you will be continuously asked if you need transport. Be prepared to hear, ‘transport? transport?’ very often. It sometimes seems, as if every Balinese is a driver, who owns a car or a motorbike. Even though, it can get a bit tiring to constantly say “no thank you”, it might be a blessing in disguise. Almost anywhere, at anytime you can, in fact, get a transport service.


Transportation – Transportation around Bali is very cheap. You can get taxis for around 65,000 IDR ($5 USD) and private mini vans across the island for around 200,000 IDR ($14 USD). Flights from Bali to most of Asia and Australia can be found for as little as 1,000,000 IDR ($75 USD), one way. Scooter rentals are available around the island for as little as 135,000 IDR ($10 USD). Bicycles are also available for rent, usually costing around 60,000 IDR ($4.50 USD) per day for a basic bike



Motorbike – Motorbikes are quintessential to the Bali experience, and it’s not uncommon to see whole families riding one together! Motorbikes are so common here because they make it easier to weave in and out of congested traffic. You can order a motorbike to get around just like you would order an Uber — all you need is the Go-Jek or Grab app. Like Uber, you use the app to request a driver and they’ll come pick you up at your destination. They’ll even bring you an extra helmet (for motorcycle rides) and a hair mask if you’re worried about hygiene. Trips are cheap. Short journeys like from Seminyak to Canggu can cost around 14,000 IDR ($1 USD), while longer journeys shouldn’t cost more than 28,000 IDR ($2 USD). If you want to rent a motorbike yourself, a rental will cost about 60,000 IDR ($4.30 USD) a day. You should be an experienced driver for this option though.
