I am travelling to Bali for a month in May and would love to have some company for part of the trip. I leave on 8 May and return on 5 June.
I am female, age 30, looking to enjoy beaches, yoga, hiking, cooking classes - not that interested in the clubbing/partying scene.
It would be lovely to meet some fellow travellers for part of my trip as it is my first time travelling solo and I am a little nervous!

Hello Laura,

just came back from Bali. Some tips:
- do NOT take a taxi from the airport. They ask for 200.000 IDR. Catch a GRAB car for 40.000 IDR instead. The meeting point for GRAB drivers is the "Solaria" cafe, on the parking side.
- You can safely draw money at the airport ATM
- You can safely buy an internet SIM card at the airport (just 10 m after the exchange office and the ATM, on the left). I bought mine from Telkomsel and was very satisfied. It is really cheap, like 8 USD for 10 or 20 GB. DO NOT buy a SIM card from the street, stands, unofficial sellers. My first SIM was from there and it was good for less GB and for shorter time than printed on the card!!!
- Get ready for some serious traffic jam and calculate 1 hour for any 10 km in any direction. Also from the airport to Kuta is approx 45 min, to Denpasar 1+ hr.

In the time I was there, I hired a GRAB driver to bring me around. I was very satisfied, if you like, I will give you her WhatsApp number.

EDIT: Never pay the price they tell you in the tourist shops. Make an offer starting at 1/3 of the asked price.
If you are a smoker, make a price comparison. Every supermarket has a different price.
