Kuta is a major hustling and bustling resort town with hundreds of hotels, bars, restaurants and shops. Those in search of a little peace and quiet, tend to head for the more sedate resorts of Sanur and Candi Dasa, on the East Coast, or Lovina in the north. Nusa Dua is another tourist haven that caters for the more upmarket crowd and is home to all five-star hotels.
Shopping in Bali, unless the product is price-tagged or branded, bargaining is the 'norm'. Bargain hard, you will often hear the shopkeepers screaming at you saying, "No, no bankrupt!" but that should not deter you. A definite must for antique lovers is the Denpasar - Ubud road, a 20 km stretch of antiques, stone and wood carvings. If you don't want to wander too far from the beach, Kuta and Legian have more than enough to appease any shopper's appetite.
For night birds, go to "Party Zone". It will take you through some of the best 'hot spots' on Bali. If you like watching the sunset, make your way down to one of the bars on Kuta Beach for that exotic cocktail or cold beer. "Funky Monkey" at Jalan Monkey Forest is a cool, modern bar with live DJs playing the latest dance music. "Planet Hollywood" features American favourites and is the latest addition to Bali's nightlife.

An important event that is celebrated throughout Bali, Nyepi is the Hindu Day of Silence and the Hindu New Year. On the night before the celebrations, it is traditional to clean the home, cook meals and do all the necessary preparations before the silence and inactivity of the following day. On the day of Nyepi, all businesses, restaurants, and entertainments are closed and the whole island stays silent and indoors for a day of contemplation. Although foreign hotel guests are exempt from the strict rules of Nyepi, many choose to participate in the same acts of silence and self-reflection.
Please note: this will be held on the 12th of March 2013.
Bali has a tropical climate. In the lowlands, temperatures average between 21°C and 33°C, but in the mountains it can go as low as 5°C. Humidity varies but is always high, between 60% and 100%.
In general, Indonesia experiences two yearly seasons of monsoon winds: the southeast monsoon, bringing dry weather and the northwest monsoon, bringing rain.
The rainy season is normally November to April, with a peak around January/February, when it rains for several hours each day. The dry season, May to October, is a better time to come and the lower humidity is 60% from July to September.

Most hotels use 220 volts, 50 cycles and a round, two-pronged slim plug. Bathroom shaver plugs usually have a transformer switch. We suggest taking an adaptor for your appliance.
You will find a range of chauffeur driven limousines, self-drive cars, taxis and hotel courtesy cars. Many taxis are not metered so it's wise to negotiate the fare before you climb aboard. Bemos are a unique form of transport. They are a mini-van masquerading as a communal bus. You simply hail the driver and negotiate the fare that suits you both.
If you wish to hire a car or motorbike you must be over 18 years of age and posses an International Driver's License or license from ASEAN countries.
When packing, keep in mind that you will be in the tropics, but that it can get cold in the mountains. Generally, you will want to dress light and wear natural fibers that absorb perspiration.
Australian passport holders require a visa on arrival in Bali.
