      Transport for 3 day trip (Ubud, Nusa Dua, Kuta)

      Bali Jan 6, 2015 at 9:29 PM

      Hi all, It seems hiring a private car / tour guide+driver is the best way to go around Bali. I am arriving to the airport early 8am in March 7 and departing about the same time in March 10, so that leaves me with three full days of sampling the island. I have already booked accommodations in Ubud, Nusa Dua and Kuta. My question is with transportation and if it is feasible to get a driver (or at least the same booking serivce) for the duration of the trip, and a rough estimate of the costs? Would be great to get contact details of drivers you've tried so I can start inquiring too.

      My route and estimated travel time is as follows:

      Day 1: Airport (8am pick-up)) >> Tirta Gangga >> Ubud hotel (3pm drop-off)  -- halfday trip

      Day 2: Ubud hotel (10 am pick-up) >> Taman Ayun >> Tanah Lot >> Nusa Dua hotel (4pm drop-off)  - halfday trip

      Day 3: Nusa Dua hotel (1pm pick-up) >> Kuta hotel  (should I take taxi instead, and how much?)

      Departure: Kuta hotel (6:30am pick-up) >> Airport   (should I take taxi instead, and how much?)

      Thanks! Ellie

      Bromo becomes more expensive

      by theo1006 Online Now Mar 1, 2014 at 10:06 PM

      Starting May 2014 visiting Bromo will become much more expensive, according to what we read in the newspaper "Jawa Pos".
      The government has decided to raise the entrance fee for the National Park (not including jeep tour and horse trip) by several hundred percent, and to set a different tariff for weekdays and for holidays.
      For foreign tourists the fee was Rp 57,000 per person; this will become Rp 267,000 on weekdays and Rp 400,500 during weekends and holidays.
      Local tourists (including foreigners holding a residence permit) used to pay Rp 10,000. This will become Rp 37,500 on weekdays and Rp 52,500 during weekends and holidays.
      The tariffs include a Rp 2,500 insurance fee.

      After months of gathering information, I am finally ready to go to Mt Bromo (later this month). I would like to know how cold can it get early in the morning. I presume that I will be on top of Mt Penanjakan.

      A few questions on, what else, Mt Bromo

      by kschew Online Now Mar 14, 2010 at 6:51 PM

      I plan to visit Mt Bromo later this year. I would like to get advice from the experienced members here.

      *I know someone has already posted a similar question in 2005, but I would like to listen to the latest replies*

      I understand that most tourists who visit Bromo leave right after breakfast, but I am considering spending an additional night there. What other activities can I do? Can I visit nearby villages or the Ranu Pani lake?

      Will I need to hire 4WD to get to the lake? Since I will be traveling alone, hiring a 4WD will be heavy on my budget.

      (b) Shall I book accommodation before going to Bromo?

      (c) In case I can't get accommodation in Cemoro Lawang, and instead have to stay in Ngadisari, is there any public transport between the two places?

      Your help is appreciated :)
