ano bang pwedeng gawin sa bali? sabi nila di daw ganon ka-ok ang beach...
^The beach is underwhelming. It's for surfers by the way, malakas ang alon. We definitely have much better beaches here in the Philippines. Maganda ang kultura ng Bali. I enjoyed the place a lot actually. Very different and yet very similar to our own culture.
temples in bali are magnificent.. tanah lot and uluwatu both have great views of the sea.. and TravelBug is right, sobra ganda ng culture nila.. It's a a tourist spot talaga sa dami ng tourists na makikita mu! Would love to go back there someday, if time permits
here in Bali now
nice weather here now
havent tried going a lot yet
i stay around Kuta with many shops, restaurant and hotels..ill try to visit the beach here later...
try to experience the kecak dance. we watched it at uluwatu during sunset, very2 nice!
if you're not in a honeymoon, don't go here na lang. mag bora ka na lang at nandun na lahat.
Tanah Lot during sunset is also nice. Try to see cultural shows, and shopping in Ubud.
thank you for the info guys
i havent got around here a lot since im just alone and my friends who lives in Bali are too busy working..hehehhe
ive been to dreamland and padung padung..very nice solemn beach...i had sun bathing there topless and no one cares..hehhehe
so many shops in kuta
and so many also try to hassle the tourist here
the place that had been bomb here before already has its monument
by the way Bali is like a big Puerto Gallera to me kaso mas sosyal, wala masyadong pokpokish girls and most of all it has a very unique culture.
hey alyssafox! just got back from bali for 5 days! super nice ang bali, and sa may kuta area din kami stay. sa may kuta square kami, which i think is one of the best locations kasi malapit sa shops, restaurants, and the beach! nag-hire kami ng driver and paid 450,000 IDR per day. we went to besakih, tanah lot, uluwatu, falls, batur volcano, and kung saan-saan pa! nag-white water rafting din sa telaja river. super saya, for only 235,000 IDR!!! highly recommended!!!
we went to bali to attend a convention a few months ago. It wasnt sponsored so I had to look for the cheapes deals. I got the Mla-Jakarta via cebupacific. I booked AirAsia Jakarta to Denpasar with the hotel through their "create your own package" option via their website. We stayed at Club Bali Mirage hotel in far Tanjung benoa because although it may not be adjacent to the convention site at nusa dua, it is still near and far cheaper and it was very nice and we were quite satisfied. There was a dropout among the attendees whose room was paid for at Westin already so we ended up having 1 room at 2 different hotels. Westin was very luxurious. May free drinks anytime at the lobby pa.
2 points though, if you'll travel via cebupacific, you'll arrive after midnight and will have to wait mga 8 hours for the air asia, There is a free shuttle from the international to the domestic terminal though. Good thing we knew someone in Jakarta who gave us a room for the night and quick tour in the morning. We took the late afternoon flight to Bali.
we had no problems with the Jakarta-denpasar flight as well as the accommodation which was booked through air asia. Be careful though! We were supposed to leave Bali at 7 and arrive after 1 hour of travel and considering the time difference, we still have around 5 hours in between flights. Pero Na delay and AirAsia ng just that 5 hours! and though we complained about missing the connecting flight for Manila, it fell on deaf ears. True, madaming clauses ang nakasulat sa website re improbability of rebooking but it was clearly stated that they should provide alternatives. They had another flight which apparently was not delayed but was originally later than our flight which they could have offerred us and we could still have made the connection.
We ended up buying ticket from Mandala air. It surely spoiled an otherwise great time in Bali. Kainis talaga AirAsia!
Walang direct flight to Bali So it has to be Mla-KL-Bali Mahaaal!
planing to go to Bali this april, but based in the comments here, baka ma-dis-appoint lang ako...my purpose in going to Bali is the beaches, if its not that nice...i have second thoughts now..please advise if i'll pushthrough with my plan in going to Bali, thanks
Piex have you been to Pangansinan specifically Alaminos area - yon kasi ang kamukha ng Bali- basta malawak ang beach tapos malakas talaga ang alon and nice sands naman but - you wont miss anything really. Sorry. I mean sige para masabi mo sa sarili mo na nakapunta ka ng Bali - try it pero dont expect too much. I mean mas maganda pa siguro Dakak or ang beach na malapit sa Cagayan de Oro - Camiguin. 4 kami nagpunta ng Bali - we enjoyed pero ayaw na namin bumalik. Mababait naman ang mga tao and the place Hard Rock etc Kuta is nice too. But to fly 3 hours to Singapore and then another 3 hours to Denpasar? Not really worth it. I suggest watch mga shows sa Travel Asia about Bali para makita mo or check out the pictures.From the pictures at least mas makakapag decide ka. I would rather go to Boracay Shores anytime. Not really that interesting. Mas maganda pa din beaches sa atin.
thanks for the advice @jay, i guess Bali its not really that nice, so i'd rather go back to Boracay this summer, sayang ang airfare, its' about 25k....thanks again...
If you are after the beach alone, I suggest you go somewhere else hehe. I was also disappointed with their beach. Malamig pa ang tubig brrrr. Anyway, there are quite a lot of things to do in Bali like seeing cultural shows and visiting their other tourist spots. I enjoyed those a lot. I particularly loved the sunset Kecak performance at Uluwatu temple.
Back in 1997 kasi parang super sosyal pag nakarating ka ng Bali - i guess siguro kasi nabasa ko sa papers before si then Vilma Santos the actress na nagbakasyon doon tapos may free stopover and 2 nites kami sa Singapore kaya siguro pag dating sa Bali - ok this is it- but the people are really nice para kang nasa Bohol very respectful sila. Ang ganda pa ng hotel namin sa Singapore - Orchard Hotel - but that is a different thread na.
the reason why i like to go to Bali because, its the #1 best island in Asia, i thought that its realy nice there....ang based on some reviews, baka nga di ako mag-enjoy....
