If you’re planning on staying a little longer, hire a guide
We recommend hiring a guide for a cost of $40-$150 per day depending upon how far they drive you and how big your group is.
Find an odalan or a cremation ceremony
Bali has endless festivals. Each little village has a village festival (odalan) every 210 days so there’s probably one happening nearby. Better yet, ask around about whether there’s a cremation ceremony occurring any time soon (usually known a couple of weeks in advance) as this is one of the more unique and visual spectacles you’ll see in Bali.
Flying into Denpasar, Bali
It isn't difficult but it can be quite a distance for those in Europe and the Americas. Beware that once you start making the approximate one-hour trek (minimum) from the international airport, you may be shocked by the dizzying traffic. This doesn't feel like paradise—but be patient—it soon will. While the first two-thirds of the trip may be congested and not all that beautiful, you'll start seeing some rice paddies and some of the beauty that inner Bali has to offer. There are a variety of ways to get there. We don't recommend renting a car, but would suggest either taking a taxi or shuttle bus.
