well, if you are non-Muslim, must try to go to Ubud and try Ibu Oka Babi Guling - Roast Pig. Right across the marketplace. To die for - at least for me

am currently in bali now.

Bali is a big island, in fact bigger than sg so u gotta plan ur trip. If u like diving best to stay in north east side where all dive sites are.
For local handicrafts, visit ubud. And yes ibu okay babi guling sedaap.

I'm heading to Bali in March. Got the tickets from Jetstar's previous promo at $170+ return, all in. Note that Jetstar's departure and arrival times are all in the evening/midnight.

As for the hotel, I picked Bali Rani for its convenience. It's in Kuta. The reviews I've read so far for this hotel has been good.

:Later,

Hotel booking:

Zuji
AsiaTravel
AsiaRooms

I booked mine at AsiaTravel coz AsiaRoom didn't have it on offer.

As for your Jetstartar question... the answer's insurance, fuel surcharge and airport tax. In my case, I was charged S$6~ for credit card fee as well.. Don't ask me why.

thanks for the hotel links.

By the way anyone been to Bali in March before? After some reading I realise that it is the end of the raining season in march. The dry start from April. Do you think going in march is a bad move? No wonder cheaper until March.

hey ts.. wanna share with you my experience there..

if you can wait.. try going on the end of the year period.. i went last november for 5 days and there were lots of places having sales.. i dunno whats the diff lah but i did a lot of shopping though.. if you're in to surf brands, then its a good time coz that was what i was advised by my frens..

i took lionair and it only cost me less than $200.. flight was 6am though.. reach there ard 8+am.. just nice timing to go eat breakfast and walk2.. and return flight is 0030hrs.. i didn't care about comfort of whatever lah.. its only a 2hr flight.. i got my ipod + psp.. enuff already.. at least the food, though not that nice, which is ok to me.. its still edible.. its a budget flight.. what do you expect.. to me as long get there safe, thats what is important..

i stayed @ some budget inn.. it was called suria inn i think.. i only remembered i paid ard SGD$150 for all that 5 days (coz i got a lobang.. hehe) its a budget hotel.. not for those who wants luxurious room.. the room i got was ok ok.. there was lots of tourist as well.. lots of japanese actually..

i wish i can go on but it'll be a composition for you to read.. it was awesome and we promised ourselves that we would come back same time this yr..

hope you will enjoy your stay there. oh yeah.. go for the river rafting!! it was the best highlight for me and my gf thruout the 5 days..

We intend to do this too. Do you still remember from where you got the river rafting package, and for how much? Lastly, any contact number?
