Ubud Area: driving ourselves?

Jump to last reply

Some of you have been very helpful already, so thank you in advance! We're heading to Bali for 3 1/2 weeks with our 13-month-old.
We're based in Lodtunduh, just outside of Ubud for the first 10 days and we're thinking of having our own rental car while there, then hiring someone to take us on to the North and elsewhere. The reason we're considering this: Our toddler's naps are a bit unpredictable and it seems nice to be able to up and go at a moment's notice rather than plan out a day and make arrangements with someone else. Also, there is the risk that he'll cry through an entire ride one day, or the hope that he'll sleep and we'll enjoy having the front seat to ourselves without his seeing us. All in all, we like the idea of having that autonomy.

BUT it's not worth it if it's going to be crazy on the road or very unpleasant figuring out how to park all the time etc. I'm worried we'll regret it. Is it too much to think we'll be fine driving ourselves during that part of our trip?

What do folks think? Can you give me an analogy for the driving conditions or otherwise say what the pros/cons are?

Thank you!
