HI FRIENDS !!
I know this is a very general question.
I have 12 days in Bali. And the lonely planet says too many things. I would love to kno everything from the people they have travelled to bali and lombok.

How long does it take to travel from kuta to:

North East
Batur
Besalik...

I also would like to know which air lines flight to Lombok, because we booked the hotel for the 12 days in Kuta, so i would love to arrive early and do as many things as possible in Lombok, for one day... or two if the plane ticket is not to expensive, anyone knows?

I alsowould like to know if it's easy to pay by credit card ( I suppose that in the big areas it is, but smaller places it's hard, like everywhere)

As you can see it's my first time going to bali, i'm going with my husband and 4 more friends.
we are celebrating our 3rd wedding anniversary, any place very romantic, or special thing to do?? ;)

I also would like to know if it's worth it to buy there any games for psp, xbox, or it's around the same price.... the same for big digital cameras(like Nikon D50 -d70)

I think i'm asking too many things, but i already said it's my first time!!! hehe

I will appreciate any tips...

Thanks for your help

ops! i forgot to ask what kind of clothing we need to wear, as we are leaving this friday....
But i have to say that we are only carrying a small bag, to fit inside the plane... we don not want to risk anything flying from Australia, after the bali 9 and Schappelle Corby's incidents....

Anyways perfect excuse for more shopping!!!!

Thanks guys!

Light clothing, have a light jacket as it's cooler in the hills

It takes a long time to get anywhere in bali. It your staying in Kuta. Anywhere south is within an hour and anything north of the city a minimum of 1 hour. Lakes are 3 hours and north coast about 1/2 to 3/4 hour more. Average speed in bali is 40kph

Go to Tanah Lot at low tide. Go to Uluwatu in evening and stay for dance. Go to temple of the lake.
Check out the waterfall at tegenungan, you can swim there The north coast is a two day trip so find a hotel in Lovina and check out the dolphins

Kuta is crowded. Learn to say just looking. And the going rate is 1/2 what they ask max.
All the touristy things are expensive to do. Waterbom, safari and marine park elephant reds etc. will set you back $100 adult roughly. And be prepared to fork out $2-$5 dollars to go into temples, waterfalls etc.

For something different, google map 'abandoned aircraft. There are 3 that I've found (737 type things..just in a vacant block) one is a restaurant

Gotta recommend getting a driver. Will cost about $60 for 8 hour day But easiest and safest way to get around. Your hotel will know someone... or anyone whose been there will have a recommendation

Balinese are the friendliest people you'll meet and will go out of the way to help you...

Thank you in Balinese is Suksma and in Indonesian Terima kasi

I'm back there myself 23/4 for 2 weeks
