tips from Bali for first time goers

Indonesia is a dream destination for a lot of people, and among its more than 13,000 islands, Bali is number 1 on the list 's wish list , so we have prepared here a list with several tips from Bali for those starting to plan a trip for there.

Bali Tips

1. How to get to Bali?

There are no direct flights from Brazil. You can go via Europe, Dubai or South Africa. Regardless of which route you choose, be prepared to spend more than 24 hours in the air and lose 2 days only on the way, since in addition to the flight time, you still miss at least 8 hours because of the time zone.
For those who are already on a trip through Asia, a good option is to abuse the low cost airlines that have there, such as going to Asia (best of all in my opinion), Lion Air, Jet Star, etc ...

2. Visa for Bali and Immigration

For Indonesia it is not necessary to apply visa in advance. Earlier, when you got off at the airport, before you went through immigration there were a few counters where you bought the visa. It cost $ 35 for those who will stay for up to a month and had to be paid in cash. But it is no longer necessary to pay this fee . 
Immigration does not have any bureaucracy, it's very quiet! The only thing that matters is having the passport with at least 6 months of validity, the international certificate of yellow fever and round trip ticket.
When we went, at the time of leaving we had to pay a fee of Rp 150,000 in cash and local currency. At the moment this rate is not being charged anymore, but it seems that they return to charge again, so when landing there, check this soon, to reserve the money.

3. Care in landing

In the luggage area it is common to have uniformed employees that you swear working there. They volunteer to help you and take your bag, but only return it if you pay. Do not let anyone take your bag.
Another thing is trying to offer transportation to your hotel, and of course, much more expensive. From the outside there is enough supply and always have to negotiate, a lot!

4. Getting around Bali: rent a car / motorcycle or hire a driver?

Well, in our case we chose to hire a car with a driver. Because? Simply because it is very cheap, something between $ 30 or $ 50 per day (12 hours). The cars are great and the driver is still the guide.
What is not lacking in Bali are places to hire this service and there is still the possibility of negotiating with some taxi driver.
We do not get excited about renting a car or a motorcycle, because the traffic in some parts is very wild, the roads are very narrow and precarious. In addition, we would have to spend a lot of time looking for things, so we gain time and quality.

5. main tourist attractions of Bali?

Besides the beaches already mentioned above, Nusa Dua, Sanur, Jimbaran and Legian are also well known. If you are in bali then you must do bali herbal walk which is very famous here. You will feel really cool in this place. 
Temples are hundreds, but the highlights are on behalf of Pura Uluwatu, Pura Tanah Lot and Pura Ulun Danau Bratan (the temple of the lake)
