Any tips please? I want to stay nearish to the airport. Kuta looks good. I am flexible though
I am looking for a backpackers atmosphere where you can chill, meet people and lounge around.
Someone mentioned The Bounty Hotel Bali - anyone been there?
ive been going to Bali since i was 9, i am 20 now.
Kuta is def the place to go if you want to meet other travellers but it is slightly ruined by tourism. If you want to see natural Bali start in Kuta but travel around when you feel settled because it is so gorgeous!
also if you can go white water rafting Sobek is the best company to go with. i would suggest you go to Poppys 1 or 2 (in Kuta) its a street name and its packed with cheap places to stay and other people in the same situation as you. If you want to meet other travellers go to Jalan Legian of a night time theres plenty of people hanging around two clubs, Paddys 2 and the Bounty Ship. if you want to you'll meet people in no time!
ps Jalan means street or road in Indonesian
that's great. thanks sally!
