Trip Report Indonesia, Hello Bali

Jump to last reply

About four hours after leaving Bangkok some of the islands of Indonesia come into view as we make our initial descent into Bali. What a beautiful tropical sensation as I make my first trip this far South in Asia.

On the walk to Immigrations and Customs I load up all of sort of things to do brochures and I can see already that my time here will be too short. A US$25 cash or payment by credit card with a 3% surcharge and it is not long before I am handing over US$40 cash for a two day car rental. The easiest car rental process that I have ever completed.

The fear of driving in Bali is not as difficult as predicated just more motorcycles to deal with. I am use to dealing with them in Asia even on the sidewalks.

My Bali adventure begins!
