Me and my friends are in a tight budget travelling to Bali. We are very much interested in observing and blend in with the local culture, which is better? Ubud or Batubulan considering the budget factor. Which temple should we visited to experience the richness of culture in Bali? We thinking of staying for three nights. with one day at the beach. This is our first time there and is public transport or tourist shuttle bus is available to go to these places?
The initial itinerary as follow; first day in Kuta(pantai Kuta)/South Kuta(padang-padang beach) for the beaches-second day to Uluwati for the beaches,temple and GWK-third day and fourth to either Ubud/Batubulan for the cultural sightseeing.
I know I am Missing a lot of thing but any suggestion for the itineraries? We are very flexible but on tight budget(sorry for mentioning it again and again...lols)
How long does it take to get from Kuta to Ubud. 2 people travelling. What is the best mode of transport and what will the cost be
Many thanks travellers.

1. What beach is good for snorkeling? I did some research and seems Blue Lagoon and Amed are good?
2. The beaches that are good for snorkelling seem further away than the usual Kuta, Nusa Dua etc. How do I get there? Any idea of cost of driver and car hire? Is it possible to get a driver and car from the airport or do I have to pre-book?
3. Is it a good idea to travel from this seemingly out of the way beach to Ubud?
Thanks for replies!

Can anyone suggest a reputable, serene, and safe spa resort providing Ayurveda (panchakarma) and yoga therapies for a girl travelling alone. She is an acquaintance of mine and is looking for an extended stay for 2-3 weeks at a same location. She is a US citizen and will she need a visa?

just wondering whether anyone had any advice on travelling to Bali as a single mother with a 7 year old. I was looking to travel to Ubud and then Sanur, for around 2ish weeks (maybe 3). Does anyone have any tips, advice or recommendations on "must do" activities?. I want my son to experience as much of the culture as possible, without boring him, as well as a fun beach holiday. Plus, I would like to know if it is safe. I have read the Balaniese people adore children, but would like some feedback from someone who knows their way around or may be a single parent that has travelled with a child themselves.
Hi all, after viewing the helpful answers to my previous question, I have decided to still visit Kuta beach for a try since it is only nearby my booked hotel.

Thanks (:
Hi all, I will be visiting Bali, Indonesia in December 2014 and my booked hotel is nearby Kuta Beach. I Googled on Kuta Beach and found countless reviews terming Kuta Beach polluted and dirty.
