How to explore Bali?
The main form of public transport on Bali is by bemo: a public minibus. Though it is an extremely cheap way to travel around, comfort is not its main focus. Prepare to step aboard a choc-a-bloc vehicle. If you truly want t experience Bali to the fullest, you may want to try a ride or two!
Another more pleasant way to discover Bali is by moped. Feeling uncomfortable with the heavy traffic? Head for the tranquil Ubud region. No mass traffic here and lots of beautiful temples in Ubud and its direct vicinity.
