How to get from Bali Airport to the accommodation
Most tourists arrive in Bali via Ngurah Rai International Airport, called Denpasar International Airport. The airport is located south of Denpasar, one of the largest cities in Bali.
The procedures on arrival in Bali are quite common: immigration and then checking the bags.
The best alternative to go from Bali Airport to the hotel is to take a transfer offered by the hotel. Contact your hotel, the transfer is one of the best ways to not get stressed.
If this is not possible, the most recommended thing is to go to the taxi cabbefore duty free.
They have a list of places on the island and their prices (per car and not per person), negotiate until you reach half the price listed. Be insistent, because the price is absurd, compared to using a metered taxi.
If the price is still high, there are two options: negotiate at the airport entrance. Maybe the taxi is irregular, but the stress is right.
You can also head to the nearest avenue and take a blue taxi (Blue Bird Taxi), which uses the taximeter. This is the cheapest way to take a taxi in Bali, but with a lot of luggage it is difficult to look for a blue taxi.
we do not recommend use public buses and bemos (local minivans). Chances are you will wait too long and everything can go wrong.
In addition to avoiding public transport, we do not recommend renting a car or motorcycle, because I have never seen traffic as chaotic and with little respect for traffic rules as in Bali.
