Well, money is always on your mind whenever you travel, right? Although vacationing does not come cheap to the pocket, still I have listed a few points which will save you a couple of bucks here and there.

  • Take 2 or 3 empty water bottles with you from India. Fill up those bottles at the airport. Be shameless! After all, its your own hard earned money. (Note: Fill bottles only from water fountains or chillers. Do not fill water from the tap because Bali's tap water is famous for giving stomach upsets.

  • Buy 5 litre water gallons from any nearby supermarket. Its cheap that way. Restaurants will NOT serve you water anywhere. Hotels give just about (330 ml *2) i.e less than a litre of water per day for two persons.


  • Buy beer at any supermarket. (Heineken,Carlsberg,Budweiser etc costs less than Indian prices at the supermarket)

  • Keep stock of a few bowls of instant noodles from the supermarket (in case you suddenly find hungry and want a quick snack at the hotel)

  • Choose Hotels with Free Breakfast. Have a late breakfast at about 10:30 am. Hotels generally give breakfast till 11:00 am. In this way you will not feel much hungry for lunch. At around 3 pm or so, you can head out to any Mc Donald’s and have a burger or so (Mc Donald’s is comparatively cheap). But remember to have a good dinner.

  • If you don't want to rent a recliner at the beach, then take a couple of big towels from your hotel and spread it out in the sand and enjoy your sunbath there. You will save a few hundred rupees here.

  • UBER is frowned upon. It may not be available at all places. In case you find one, jump in it as fast as you can. UBER is relatively cheaper than the Blue Bird Taxi.

  • Bargain, Bargain and Bargain. Its accepted !!!
