Just recently I came back from a little escape to Bali with some friends. We were lucky to find a promotional fare for the tickets so we’ve bought the tickets since May for a trip in August ;).
We left Bandung on 19th August, the flight was at 5 PM so we decided to leave home around 1 so we wouldn’t be late for the check-in. But until 12.55 the taxi that was supposed to take us to the airport hadn’t arrived yet and not everyone was really ready with all their luggage. I got bored waiting and took some pics with my friends.
We arrived in Kuta at around 7 PM so there wasn’t much to do other than taking a bath, looking for something to eat, and taking a rest at the hotel.
On the next day, we started our vacation in Bali by hitting the beach. Seriously, nothing feels like it when your feet touch the sea!!
The rest two days, I didn’t take any photos since I spent all the day on the beach and in the water so I didn’t wanna risk my camera.
I borrowed a body-board and body-boarded all day! I did it so good I think I can go pro in body-boarding LOL!!
On the last day I spent all the day struggling to get tanned but I didn’t succeed coz I couldn’t stand the heat!
Long story short, I had a splendid holiday in Bali without costing me a lot of money and that was the point of the trip! Here are some good deals we made (or found?) :
- We stayed in a low-budget hotel named “Arthawan”. The rate was extremely low (RP 50K per night including breakfast). It’s not really clean but we didn’t mind since it’s located just by the road of Poppies Lane II, the center of backpackers in Bali and also a connector lane from the beach to the monument of Bali Bombing.
- We rented a motorbike for 36 hours and we paid only for 24 hours (Rp 100,000)! Plus, the bike was rented full-tanked! Hmmm…
- We rented a surf board for Rp 70K for 2,5 days. Normally they rent one for Rp 50K per day on Poppies Lane II or for Rp 20K per hour on the beach. Yikes!!
- And the most amazing thing was : Balinese people sell porky menus really cheap!! My love of pork has finally find its home!!
Can’t wait to be in Bali again!!
