Customer Travel Tip: barter at all of the shops and investigate prices before you buy anything, some items differ between £25 and £2.50 depending on how you haggle in the shops. taxis the same, always agree a price before hand, taxis are dirt cheap if you do it properly. if a taxi driver offers you his number take it as he will give you cheaper taxis for the rest of your trip if he knows you.

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year Beach / sunbathing Partying / nightlife Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: Don't buy anything at the shops unless you're confident in your haggling skills. Wait until you get to a less touristy area.

Liked: Good for a night out and spending some time on the beach. But Bali offers much more in the way of sights and culture outside of Kuta.

Disliked: Way too packed and crazy. A bit dangerous as well, but any time you have a large city center with lots of tourists it's going to attract a shady bunch of characters.

Customer Travel Tip: Be sure to visit the Bali Sea Turtle Society on Kuta beach. They do fantastic work to help maintain the sea turtle population.

Liked: Everything is very easy to access. You can walk to most places and dont need transport.

Disliked: Too many motorbikes. Which mount pavements and drive at you. Just because they are too impatient to sit in some traffic.
