Top Places in Bali

Sip on cocktails from the comfort of the colourful bean bags in Seminyak as you listen to live music and watch the sun set over the ocean. Kuta is THE place to party and awesome for surfing whilst Nusa Dua is ideal for some relaxation by the beach. Or visit to the lush inland, marvel at rolling rice terraces or head to Ubud and find your inner zen at a yoga retreat.

Bali Travel Costs

Beers

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.

Meals

You can find meals for as little as £1-5 in Bali or treat yourself to seafront dining in Seminyak where you can expect to pay £5-10 per meal. The less touristy the restaurant, the cheaper (and often better) the meal.
