When you hear about Bali, you may think of Seminyak resorts, Chedi Club in Ubud, or Viceroy Villa. They are all high-end destinations for big-budget tourists. And because of the rich cultural heritage, and ample entertainment facilities in Bali, you may also think that it will be impossible to enjoy them with low-budget. But the truth is, you can grab your favorite backpack, book a plane ticket right now, and spend a week there with no more than $50 a day.
Finding a Budget Villa
To enjoy the exotic view of Seminyak, you do not need to stay in a resort. Although many people associate the region with luxury hotels, you can easily find a budget room by typing, “1 bedroom Seminyak villas,” on your search engine. They are plenty of them, and it will be okay if you look for a stay once you arrive at Ngurah Rai Airport.
You do not have to worry about the Internet connection. Most villas in the big regions (Kuta, Denpasar, Nusa Dua, Seminyak, Jimbaran, Tanah Lot, Ubud, Canggu, and Legian) have wi-fi connections. You can even find local convenience stores and ask for the wi-fi password. You will not get lost in Bali.
Working Space Services
If you are a mobile worker, then Bali will be a perfect destination. For instance, a co-working space named Outpost, which has branches in Canggu and Ubud, costs only $187 for one month of unlimited access and a designated desk. And other co-working space services also follow that price range. They will not cost you more than $200 per month.
Imagine working near a beach or surrounded by rice fields. Wouldn’t it be refreshing?
Renting a Bike
Both car and bike rents are everywhere in Bali. But considering the traffic and narrow roads there, renting a motorbike is the best choice to explore the city.
An international driving license is mandatory. But if you have not had one, you can ask for the rental service’s clearance for around $30. Or, you can apply for a temporary license in West Denpasar City Police Headquarter for $25.
After you get a deal, you should check for the bike’s condition first before riding them. Scams are common there. And the way the scammers take money from unsuspecting foreigners is by claiming the pre-existing scratches or dents on the bike as the user’s fault.
If you want to cut your meal budget, it will be better if you eat local street foods. Fried rice, fried chickens, satay, and pork dishes are everywhere in Bali, and they are all cheap. To avoid getting overpriced foods, go to restaurants that display fixed prices on their menu. Otherwise, they can overcharge you after you eat the foods.…Continue Reading
