Bali Budget Travel Guide 2018



WHAT'S COVERED IN THIS BALI TRAVEL GUIDE BLOG?


Visa Requirements


Filipinos visiting Indonesia for tourism do not need a visa to enter Bali. You just need a valid Philippine passport with 6 months validity left. Philippine passport holders can stay in Indonesia visa-free for a maximum of 30 days, and no extension possible. Always make sure to have a return or onward ticket in case the immigration officer asks for it when you enter Bali.

How to get to Bali, Indonesia?

How to get out of Bali airport?


Taxis, Go-jek, and Grab are popular options to get out of Bali/Denpasar Airport. They are relatively cheap and inexpensive. But for safety and convenience, I highly recommend renting a private car transfer from the airport to your hotel - especially when arriving in Bali late at night. It's also very cheap and you can book it in advance via Klook.com for as low as 320 per car good for 4 passengers. This is ideal for groups, and families traveling with kids or senior citizens.

When is the best time to visit Bali?


Bali is a good year-round destination. Being close to the equator, Bali enjoys warm weather year-round. But it has two distinct seasons - wet and dry, just like the Philippines. High season is during the months of July and August when weather is driest and most days are sunny. It also becomes busiest during Easter Holidays, and Christmas and New Year (December till 1st week of January). So if you're a traveler who doesn't enjoy too much crowd, avoid this season. Rainy season is from November to March and the month of April is the driest season. The lean season or the quietest months on the island and when you'll find the cheapest rates on hotels is from March to May.


How to stay connected in Bali?


To stay connected to the internet while in Bali, you may rent a portable travel WIFI that you can share to your travel buddies. If you're traveling alone, your best choice is to buy a local SIM card. Please note that SIM card is very expensive if you will buy it upon arrival in Bali. I bought one upon arrival and it cost me 300,000 IDR or 1,139.00 PHP. You can get a SIM card at a discounted rate of PHP 421 pesos with a consumable data of 5 GB (3G) + 5 GB(4G) or 574.00 PHP for 6GB (3G) + 6GB(4G) + 38GB Bonus. All you need to do is book it in advance via Klook.com.

How to get around Bali?


Although there are public transportation, taxis, Go-jek, and Grab (Car/Taxi), the most convenient way to explore Bali is to rent a private car. What we did during our trip in Bali is to rent a private car for one whole day and just tell the driver where we want to go. With a private car, we enjoyed our tour around Bali at our own time and convenience. But if you're just going around the city, you can just book a Grab Car or Go-jek which are really very cheap in Bali.

Grab or Go-jek?


These two are both safe and efficient way of getting a ride around Bali. Since Grab is more popular in the Philippines, we tend to book more often in Grab than with Go-jek. But there are times that we also book with Go-jek. If you compare their rates, Go-jek offers slightly lower rates than Grab.


Where to Exchange Money?


The currency in Indonesia is called Indonesian Rupiah (IDR) which is 1 IDR = 0.0036 PHP or 0.000066 USD. There are many money changers at the airport or in downtown area. You must bring USD and change it to IDR. Although they can also change your PHP to IDR, it is not recommended because the exchange rate is terribly low.

Another option is to withdraw money from local ATMs. This is a better choice than exchanging PHP to IDR. Before leaving the Philippines, be sure to advise your bank that you will be withdrawing money from abroad to avoid any inconvenience. Sometimes, when banks notice that there's an unusual activity in your account, they block the account which will prevent you from withdrawing from your ATM. So, be sure to call your bank before your travel.
