Known for its arts and traditions, Bali is rich in culture and helpful, friendly locals who will make your trip a special one. Located between Java and Lombok, the Indonesian island is home to many of Indonesia's Hindu minority. Its capital city of Denpasar is constantly visited by tourists, making it the number one tourist destination in Indonesia.
Ngurah Rai Airport is the main hub for international flights to Bali. 15 kilometres from Denpasar it has a number of facilities that will cater to the needs of a first time Bali traveller. Facilities include:
After enjoying the food and shopping within the airport setting off to your accommodation is relatively simple. It is advised if choosing to drive in a taxi to use the pre- paid taxi service at the airport. Buses run between Denpasar and the airport if you are looking for another transport option. However, if you stay at the resort of Kuta you can always walk 2.5 kilometres to your hotel.
There are a number of other accommodation options which will ensure you stay close to the airport but only minutes from paradise.
There are so many reasons to visit Bali. Whether it is the Galungan festival in May and November or the Balinese New Year – Icaka, there is something for you to experience in this humid locality that travellers just can't get enough of.
