Buses are inexpensive and reliable while tourist shuttle buses are more expensive, but comfortable and convenient. Cars, taxis, motorcycles and bicycles are all easily hired. Consider hiring a car and driver. Balinese drive on the left.

If you plan to drive a car, you should obtain an International Driving Permit (IDP) from your national motoring organisation; bring your home licence as well – it’s required to be carried together with the IDP. If not, then be prepared to pay a fine (around 100,000Rp – about AUD11) if stopped by the local police.
