Travelling tips for Indonesia!
Eat on the road
You can pick up delicious local fare for under 10,000 IDR ($ 0.70 USD). Alligator snacks, soups and noodles will keep your wallet thick and your belly full! The market is your best bet to find seriously cheap food.
Nothing is at face value in Indonesia. Bargain with the sellers, because the price they quote will not be the price you will pay if you bargain!
Save money on alcohol by visiting local happy hours (or buying your drinks at a local store instead). This would be the cheapest way to drink!
Take a free shuttle
While taxis are inexpensive, pretty much every accommodation will provide free airport transfers. Take advantage of these and save yourself some money.
Book online in advance
if you're planning to hit some of Bali's most popular destinations in Indonesia, it's really cheap to show your accommodation (and sometimes tours) in advance online , Not to complete a transaction.
Pay directly to the bus attendant
when you are taking an intercity bus, do not buy tickets from the ticket window. Cheap to pay on the bus!
Bring a filtered water bottle
Bali has a ton of plastic waste. It is so much that a lot of it is just burnt. You will see it during your journey - and smell it. Bring a reusable water bottle with filters to save both money and the environment. I personally like Lifestra and Graele.
