1. Separate Funds
You have to separate your budget for accommodation and ticketing from budget for meal and entrance fee. Just bring some necessary money in your wallet and let the rest of your money in your bank account. You can just simply withdraw your money using ATM. It is important for your own safety and no need to worry of robbery.
2. It is not recommended to go to Bali in holiday season or weekend
Holiday season maybe fascinating for some tourist, but they have to be prepared that everything might be more expensive including food, hotels and also plane ticket. In addition you cannot enjoy your holiday due to the crowd place. It’s recommended for you to go to Bali on weekdays because it is saver and you can easily find hotels with cheaper price. When you choose your flight, it will be better to choose night flight compared to morning or afternoon flight due to its cheaper price.

The area around Poppy Lane and Legian Street are famous for its affordable and cheap accommodation. The room price is start from IDR 100.000 to IDR 350.000 per night and you’ll even get cheaper price if you stay for 3 consecutive days.

4. You can rent a motorcycle
When you are in Bali it’s okay you want to explore it just by foot, but it can’t be when the destination that you want to reach is faraway. We would like to recommend you to rent motorcycle instead of using taxi or rent a car. It is lot cheaper especially if you rent it for more than 1 day and you can get out from traffic jam easily. Always remember to bargain and get yourself the best price.
