With a little know how you can make the most of your trip to the Island of the Gods. From navigating the crowds to monkey-savvy tips, we’ve got you covered.

Editors note: During the COVID-19 pandemic, we recommend checking local health advice before travelling to any destination.

Getting around in Bali can be a challenge as it doesn’t have public transport or bus services, but that doesn’t mean you are limited in your options. There are plenty of apps like Grab and Go-Jek that can get you from A to B at a fraction of the cost. Another option is to rent a moped which you can easily do in any major town or city on the island. Just remember that if you plan on driving you must always wear a helmet. Failure to do so can result in a fine of 300,000 IDR. It might not be the most flattering headgear but it’s a requirement that you should always follow for your own safety. You can also hire a private driver for the day which is the quickest and most convenient way to explore the island. It’s easy to find drivers through personal recommendations or reputable online platforms like Klook.
