OUR MEETING LOCATION , KUTA BEACH, BALI

The rich and diverse culture of Bali plays out at all levels of life, from the exquisite flower-petal offerings placed everywhere, to the processions of joyfully garbed locals shutting down major roads as they march to one of the myriad temple ceremonies, to the otherworldly traditional music and dance performed island-wide. Almost everything has spiritual meaning.

Bali is an Indonesian island known for its forested volcanic mountains, iconic rice paddies, beaches and coral reefs. The island is home to religious sites such as cliffside Uluwatu Temple. To the south, the beachside city of Kuta has lively bars, while Seminyak, Sanur and Nusa Dua are popular resort towns. The island is also known for its yoga and meditation retreats.

Kuta Beach is one of the best places to enjoy Bali’s famous sunsets. Located on the island’s southwestern coast, you can enjoy sunbathing, surfing, swimming, and beach soccer throughout the year. 

Kuta’s main beach roads, Jalan Kartika Plaza and Jalan Pantai Kuta, are dotted with resorts, hotels, entertainment spots, shops, and a mix of restaurants and bars. Shopping options include Discovery Shopping Mall and the colourful Kuta Art Market. If you’re planning to surf in Bali, the waves at Kuta Beach suit beginner to advanced surfers.  

I highly recommend reading up on Bali, as its loaded with history, culture and points of interest. I can recommend the DK Eyewitness Travel Guide on Bali and there are many other to choose from. You may also want to check out online sources like wikitravel.org, lonelyplanet.com, and tripsavy.com.

Getting Around in Bali

The best way to get around in Bali is to either take public taxis (Blue Bird) which are quite safe and use a legal meter system or to rent a car.

Indonesian Currency: Rupiah

An essential travel tip to Bali is the official currency of Indonesia. Indonesian Rupiah denominations are in Rp1,000, Rp2,000, Rp5,000, Rp10,000, Rp20,000, Rp50,000 and Rp100,000.

Bali electric plugs are type C, F, and G. You will need a voltage converter and plug adapter in order to use U.S. appliances. We recommend getting a universal adapter and converter kit.

Balinese, Indonesian and English are the most widely spoken languages in Bali, and the vast majority of Balinese people are bilingual or trilingual.
