Welcome to Bali Island. Bali island is one of the island that combine between the beauty of nature and culture that preserved by local people. The beauty of nature that was served are mountains, volcano and for sure beaches with surging surf for any surfer level also variety of sea animals in the deep down the sea. A traditional culture of community who upholds Hindu by prays is interesting to watch. To enjoy it we need easy and cheap transportation. If you are budget travelers, then a scooter/moped is the right choice.
When you arrived at Bali, you can start exploring Bali Island driving around by scooter/moped with asking the scooter/moped rental staff to deliver it to you in Ngurah Rai airport. Make sure the scooter/moped rental that you hired can install Phone/GPS holder at your scooter/moped for free, so you can ride along to Kuta or go straight to Canggu, a hectic place that been choose by young traveler or maybe just find your hotel/villa that you already booked.
My experience riding a scooter/moped to Canggu at 4 pm, start from Seminyak because I already know it was busy hour. The Journey took 30 minutes till I arrived at Batu Bolong Beach. Domestic and International tourist spot for seeking surging wave and enjoying the sunset in the restaurants, bars beside the beach.
Along the way, I've been said to myself, rent a scooter/moped is the best choice because the traffic jam and the road itself is not big enough make the traffic is inevitable. Torrid of the sun and tropical breeze make me feel the difference climate with other big cities.
if you want to go to Ubud, Lovina, Amed, Tulamben, Virgin Beach, Dreamland, Gunung Batur, Tanah Lot, Kintamani by riding scooter/moped is not something impossible, you can search for remote area that car can't pass through instead. For an example like in Ubud, there some short cut that just only by cycle and scooter/moped can pass it.
Kuta, Legian, Seminyak, Canggu Beach are favorite spot for sun bathing and surfing for beginner and middle level. If you want to bring your surf board, install surf rack in your scooter/moped is the best option. Make sure that your scooter/moped rental have surf rack. If you are a professional surfer, Uluwatu Beaches is must visit places. You can feel the different atmosphere that served in Sanur and Nusadua Beach. You can enjoy remarkable sunrise, Kitesurfing, Cano, Surf paddle and another water sport likes banana boat, sea walker, Parasailing, Jet Ski, Fly board, Flying fish and many more in Tanjung Benoa Beach, Nusadua.
Before you riding the scooter/moped make sure that it is decent to ride. Just test the scooter/moped by riding it before you agree to hire. Furthermore, choose the scooter/moped rental who provide insurance, fast chat respond will make the transaction easier and warm assistance if you need help also existence of scooter/moped rental shop.
If you are solo traveler, or travelling with your friends, couple, even your children, driving scooter/moped in Bali Island will give you adventurous memory. Moreover for you who travelling with your family, you can use scooter/moped for stand-by vehicle for buy some groceries in the nearby mini market or just for driving around.
