Bali, Legian Beach

Jump to last reply

Traveling in early November and staying at Bali NIksoma for 3 days on Legian Beach for some R&R. Have a few questions about the area:

1. About how much USD should a taxi cab ride from airport to Legian? Is it necessary to bargain for the fare? tip or no tipping?
2. Any suggestions on maybe one day trip that's not too far by car to get a feel for the
country? Would prefer not to ride more than an hour away.
3. Suggestions for an area nearby for diving for my daughter or snorkeling? Is it easy to arrange a boat trip to a nearby island or would it be better to hire a driver and go to another part of the island; and about how much should it cost?
4. Nearby restaurant recommendations, or street food?
5. Good shopping? (and I don't mean boutique shopping).

As always, appreciate all the advice of fellow fodorites.
