Local beers including the iconic Bintang Lager cost between £1 and £3. Expect to pay a bit more in Seminyak's swanky bars or if you want imported beer.

In Bali you can treat yourself. Stay in a 3* hotel for around $50-70 per night.
The best time to head to Bali is during the dry season between June and October. The shoulder seasons of May and November are also a great time to travel and are a little cheaper and less busy whereas the wet season is - as you can expect from the name- rather wet. The tropical rainfall is what makes Bali so lush, so it really is an all year round destination.
Bali is the perfect place if you are travelling on a budget as the cost of transport, taxis, hostels, drinks and meals are so much lower than in the UK so you can easily get around the island, stay in your favourite places, enjoy local cuisine and make the most of the nightlife.
