Journey from Ubud to Amed

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.

  3. chiangmai eco holidayWe have thoroughly enjoyed our years here in Thailand's "Rose of the North". The temperature here is comfortable enough to wear a single layer of light clothing.There is a cornucopia of things to discover in one of the World's best cities to visit (Travel and Leisure 2010) certain to cater to WANDERLUST.
