Bali tours & things to do
Fondly referred to as the “Island of the Gods”, Bali is a mecca for tropical island escapees, adventurists and party-goers alike.
Drawing 12 million visitors every year, Bali’s coasts are fringed with inviting white and black sands, as well as enviable surf conditions. Inland, the island houses enchanting volcanic hillsides, ancient temples and sacred sites, and a party landscape that can only be defined as infamous.
Whether you choose to stay in the thick of things or wander the road less traveled, Bali is truly a paradise on Earth.
Once your plane touches ground in beautiful Bali, you’ll still have one more thing to do before you’re allowed to explore the Indonesian island — getting through customs. It may sound like a to-do, but if you get all of your documents in order, you’ll be all set. Here’s what you’ll need to have:
If you plan on staying longer than 30 days, be sure to extend your visa as you’ll incur some hefty fines for overstaying — $73.50 for each day!
You’ll be in a completely different part of the world, meaning you’ll have to adjust to the way of a life so you don’t look like such a camera-touting tourist. Here a few tips to make your Bali vacation a breeze.
First, bring some cash over with you so you can purchase your visa on arrival. Next, you should know that the currency used in Bali is Indonesian rupiah (IDR).
You can either exchange your cash with a bank or money changer, or you could withdraw local money from an ATM with a travel-friendly debit card. Most ATMs will only allow you to take out a maximum of 3,000,000 IDR (roughly over $200). If you prefer spending with plastic, Visa and MasterCard are widely accepted, just make sure you bring a travel-friendly credit card to beat the extra fees. However, having extra cash is always a smart move, as not every location is going to accept credit cards.
