Budget vacation in Bali

This paradise island attracts travelers from all over the world. However, many people believe that a trip to the island is only available to wealthy people.

We'll tell you if this is true below.

Flight costs

Tourists spend the largest amount of money on travel. And unfortunately, there is no way around it. The most common way to get to the archipelago is by air. To get from Warsaw to Denpasar (the main city on Bali, where the island's only airport is located), you need to fly with a stopover of 15 hours or more. Prices start from $850 to $1070 one way.

If you plan your trip in advance, you can save a lot of money on tickets. Some airlines offer discounts (up to 50% or more) for tickets booked several months or even a year in advance.

Accommodation

Bali offers a wide range of accommodation options: from budget hostels to luxury hotels. The cost of a room can vary from $6 to $50 per night, including breakfast. For one bed in a dormitory, you can pay from $5 to $20, in a guest house - from $2 to $8.

Villas are perfect for a group of friends or families. They provide more privacy and space and often have their own pools and jacuzzis. A day will cost from $100 to $1000.

Food

There are many cafes and restaurants here. For lunch in a good restaurant you will have to pay $30, for dinner for two - $25. A cappuccino will cost $2.30, water - $1.20.

We also recommend trying local fast food. The most popular dish is pisang goreng (banana cakes). For dessert, we recommend enjoying local fruits: passion fruit, mango, rambutan. In the supermarket, a budget set of products costs about $7: bread - $1.70, milk - $1.90, 12 eggs - $1.70, a kilogram of bananas - $1.60.

Transportation

Buses are the main way to get around. A trip from the airport to Denpasar costs $0.44 and takes 15 minutes. You can find out about the arrival time of the bus from the locals or find information on the board. Usually, flights run from five in the morning to nine in the evening with an interval of half an hour.

You can also rent a scooter. This pleasure is inexpensive, only $5.50 per day, and a motorcycle costs $27.40. However, if you still feel insecure behind the wheel, it is better to give up this idea. After all, traffic is chaotic and few people follow the rules.

For a family or company vacation, we recommend renting a car. A car will cost from $39 to $55 per day, depending on the brand. For reference, a liter of gasoline in Bali costs $0.90.

Vacation

Be sure to visit Ubud. The city is built in a mountainous area, surrounded by rice fields, jungle, and rivers. Here you should visit the Ubud Palace, Galleries of Jewelry and Women's Art. For those who enjoy active leisure, we suggest surfing. Renting a board will cost $10. The best places to surf are Kuta (for beginners) and Uluwatu (for professionals).

Be sure to visit the Pura Besakih temple, the island's main shrine. By the way, this pagoda is one of the largest in Indonesia. To relax, sign up for all possible procedures in SPA centers. They are famous for special programs that help relieve stress and improve blood circulation.

You can feed elephants and watch performances with them at Taro Safari Park.

Results

The largest amount of the budget will be spent on the flight (round trip from $1700). You can spend $25 per day on a vacation in Bali. For this money, you can rent a hotel, buy food in a local store, and visit the most popular places. If you expect a comfortable room in an apartment, dinners in a cafe, excursions and beach activities, you will have to pay $130 and more.

By the way, in the off-season, from May to October, prices for flights, accommodation, and other services are much lower. And housing far from popular tourist areas is much cheaper.

Our advice: plan your trip in advance. This will help you get the desired vacation for a reasonable price.
