Thanks for joining me again!
This is the third and final blog related to Bali.
Here, you’ll find details pertaining to the associated cost of activities highlighted in “What to Do-
Overall, Bali was very affordable.
Relatively cheap quite frankly.
While some establishments accept USD, it is best to exchange your currency for Rupiah. It
makes it easier on you and them, taking language barriers and conversion rates into
The Exchange Rate is about 1 USD = 14,449.0000 IDR (Indonesian Rupiah) There are slight
changes made to this rate, daily.
Transportation was the most costly expense. The rate is based on how long you will need your
driver and how many people needing to be transported. While it’s only about 25 dollars per day
for transportation, if you’re crossing provinces that’s additional money. Ideally, you’d want to
schedule your activities within close proximity to your home.
To put this into perspective, from the airport to Ubud (which is pretty far) you wouldn’t pay more
than 20 bucks. If you needed a ride from the airport to Denpasar (no more than a15 minute
drive) you’d pay about 6 bucks.
The total cost of Transportation for 2 weeks in Bali was 400, roughly. Remember, this was split
between 7 people.
If you’d like to rent Mopeds or catch Taxi’s, NEGOTIATE! You can probably get anywhere within
the same province for no more than 5 dollars.
When you go to the boutique/vendor areas to buy souvenirs, NEGOTIATE! These are the
cheapest souvenirs that you’ll ever buy. The goods that my party and I bought were high quality
despite the clearance prices. The owners of the boutiques are very nice and looking for sells!
In regards to activities and food/drinks see below, reflected cost is in U.S. dollars.
The Campuhan Ridge Walk- FREE!
Bali Swings- 35
Monkey Forest- 3
Masons Elephant Park- 7
Royal Kirana Spa 160

Tirta Empul Tampaksiring (Bali Holy Spring Water) - 4
Potato Head Beach Club- FREE! Poolside lounger requires 38 dollar minimum spent on food and drinks
Sundays Beach Club - 28
Kilo Kitchen, Bali- Meals range from 10-30 dollars
Bridges Restaurant- Meals range from 8-40 dollars
Conclusively, it’s possible for you to go to Bali with about 350, USD for spending. You can survive off of
that for a two week span. However, if you plan to overindulge at restaurants and beach clubs, I’d
recommend about 500 USD. This will definitely cover the aforementioned activities and you may even
have left over cash!
