DO MANY PEOPLE TRAVEL ALONE?

Yes. Lots of people on our trips are travelling solo. But by doing our trip you’ll instantly be part of a group, so it’s a great way to meet others and make friends! Most of our accommodation is twin or triple share, so we will put you in a room with someone of the same gender.

CAN I CHAT TO MY GROUP BEFORE I LEAVE?

You can start chatting to people in your group and other travellers before you leave. Just go to our Facebook page, click on ‘Groups’ and choose your country.

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO VISIT BALI?

The great thing about Bali is it’s usually quite hot all year round, so it’s great to go at any time. There are generally 2 broad seasons in Bali. April to September is usually dry and hot. October to March is slightly cooler with a slightly higher chance of rain, but this rain is often only for an hour or so, which can be a nice relief from the heat.

HOW MUCH SPENDING MONEY WILL I NEED?

All your activities, accommodation, transport and most meals are included, so you’ll just need money for any extra meals, drinks, shopping and any onward travel. We recommend you bring at least £300 / $500 spending money.

HOW WILL I ACCESS MY MONEY WHILE I’M AWAY?

It’s best to take a Visa or Master Card debit, credit or travel money card. There are ATM’s available throughout Bali so it’s easy to get access to cash. Some places accept credit card but not all.

IS THERE WI-FI THROUGHOUT THE TRIP?

All accommodations we stay at have free Wi-Fi available. Indonesia’s network quality is often lower than you’re used to but you can generally connect and do basic stuff.

WHAT LUGGAGE DO YOU RECOMMEND?

We always recommend travelling with a backpack and packing light! 10-20kgs of stuff should be plenty. It’s generally quite hot in Bali so dragging around a huge suitcase is not much fun. There is luggage storage at the airport or at some accommodations if needed.

WHAT PLUGS DO THEY USE?

Bali and the rest of Indonesia generally use a round 2 pin socket the same as most of Europe. It’s always best to grab yourself an appropriate adaptor if needed before you go.

IS THE TAP WATER SAFE TO DRINK?

Don’t drink tap water in Bali, stick to boiled or treated water. Don’t worry about ice as it is made using purified water. INTRO Travel has installed refillable water stations at almost all of our overnight stops so you will always have clean water and don’t need to buy plastic water bottles. You can also buy a reusable INTRO water bottle!

SAMPLE ITINERARY

ARRIVAL INFORMATION

It’s best to arrive on the actual start date. There’s no activities on the first day, so you can arrive at any time. If you do arrive early, we’ll still pick you up from the airport and will book you into our Kuta guesthouse – Bendesa from the day you arrive. Extra nights will be approx. £25 / $50AUD per night for a twin room and can be pre-paid with your agent or paid on arrival.

 It’s also recommended to have onward travel booked out of Bali before travelling there, as you may get asked for proof of this before boarding your flight to Bali. 

*From Jan 1st 2020 onwards the tour will start with 3 nights in Canggu instead of 2 nights Kuta, 1 night Canggu.

VISA AND INSURANCE

Most nationalities including the UK, Europe, Australia, NZ, Canada, US, Scandinavia and Brazil will usually receive a 30-day visa on arrival in Bali. This visa will be free for most nationalities and at a cost of approx. $35USD for others. We recommend checking with your local Indonesian consulate for up to date visa requirements and costs. If you need any further help with visas just contact us.

Travel Insurance for Bali is compulsory to join Bali Intro. Your Group Leader will ask to see proof of your cover before your trip begins. You can organize your travel insurance here.

DON’T WORRY WE’VE GOT EVERYTHING COVERED!

Everything is fully organized for you, we will pick you up from the airport, look after your accommodation, all transport and take care of all the little things it takes to make sure your trip is awesome.

ABOUT BALI

Bali, the famed “Island of the Gods”, stakes a serious claim to be paradise on earth. Its diverse landscape of mountainous terrain, rugged coastlines and sandy beaches, lush rice terraces and barren volcanic hillsides provide a picturesque backdrop to its colourful, spiritual and unique culture. The cultural landscape of the Bali province has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list.

With world-class diving and surfing, a range of natural, cultural and historical attractions, and plentiful accommodation options, it is one of the most popular island destinations in the world. Bali offers something to almost every visitor from the backpacking youth to the ultra-wealthy. Its majority-Hindu population also stands in contrast to much of the rest of majority-Muslim Indonesia.

Bali is one of more than 18,000 islands (based on a satellite view) in the Indonesian archipelago, and is just over 2 km (almost 1.5 miles) from the eastern tip of the island of Java and west of the island of Lombok. The island, home to a little over 4 million people, is about 144 km (89 mi) long from east to west and 80 km (50 mi) north to south.

The word “paradise” is understandably used a lot in Bali. Friendly, hospitable people; a magnificently visual and spiritual culture; and spectacular beaches with great surfing and diving have made Bali the top tourist attraction in Indonesia. The vast majority of international visitors to Indonesia go nowhere else but Bali.

This popularity is not without its bad sides—once paradisical Kuta has degenerated into a congested warren of concrete, scammers and touts extracting a living by overcharging tourists. The island’s visibility also drew the unwanted attention of terrorists in 2002 and 2005. However, Bali has managed to retain its magic. Bali is a marvellous destination with something for everyone, and though heavily visited, there are spots where you will be able to find serenity.

At peak season, more than 400,000 foreign tourists flock to Bali, in addition to a huge surge of domestic tourists during school holidays (middle and end of year) & around the Ied season where it is practically quiet elsewhere in Indonesia. Fortunately, they can all be absorbed by a severe oversupply of hotels, which experts predicted will occur for at least a decade. Because of this however, a 4-star hotel room in Kuta, Legian and Seminyak can be reserved for just above US$20 per day, and last-minute deals can produce rates of less than US$20 per day!

As more travelers visit, especially due to the visa-free regime introduced by the Indonesian government, this small resort island has been striving to provide more modern attractions and facilities to travelers of different interests, while retaining the exotic traditional culture & spotless natural beauty that has always been the point of interest for visitors. Highly frequented areas such as the beaches in central Bali have been gentrifying.

Bali has many narrow streets and traffic jams are common in Bali throughout the year, especially Kuta, Legian and the Seminyak area, Central Denpasar city, Gatot Subroto Timur, access to Gianyar and access to the east. Streets in Kuta and Legian and Seminyak have been made one-way. For a 500-m journey in the opposite direction of a one-way street, walking can get you there in 15 minutes; if you take your car, it might take up to a half hour. Please take care to allow enough time to catch your plane.
