One of the surprising factors about Bali is the lack of public transport. This makes travelling around quite expensive, as you either have to pay for a taxi or shuttle busses and these are not as cheap compared with public buses/trains in other countries we had visited.
We checked out a few tour operators and were quoted 185,000IR each for a bus and 370,000IR for the both of us in a taxi. Thinking we could get a better deal elsewhere, we asked a few of the taxi drivers on the street and bartered one down to 300,000IR.
We were picked up at 11am from our home stay and arrived in Amed at 1:30pm.
