What are the main Bali airports, and how do I get from them to central Bali?
The only international airport in Bali is Ngurah Rai International Airport. You’ll usually see it referred to when searching for flights as simply the Denpasar airport. The capital city, Denpasar, is about a 30-minute drive away. However, you may also want to spend some time in Kuta, just 15 minutes from the airport and well-known for its surfing and nightlife. Either way, the easiest way to get around is to take a taxi from the airport or rent a car.
When is the cheapest time to book a flight from the UK to Bali?
Prices based on bookings made 60-91 days prior to departure.
Bali universities and campuses
Bali isn’t the biggest study abroad destination, seeing how most students want to slip into relaxation mode the minute they arrive. However, if you’d like to spend a few months studying in paradise, it’s definitely possible! Bali is a perfect study abroad destination if you’re studying oceanography, ecology, art or sociology. Udayana University offers several programmes for study-abroad students and of course, you can always check with your uni at home to see what they have to offer too.
Bali lifestyle and culture
Balinese people are quite proud of their unique culture—and many travellers fall in love, too! Although you’ll notice many differences from Western cultures, locals tend to be open and accepting of travellers and other cultures. In fact, you’ll see how many cultures have influenced Bali, especially in larger cities. Although it’s a small island, it can feel quite international in parts! Balinese people are generally warm and friendly, and a smile can go a long way! Balinese culture has also been shaped by Hindu influences, so be sure to dress appropriately when visiting temples or other sacred sites.
Exploring Bali on a student budget
Exploring Bali on a student budget is easy—while the island is known for being luxurious, you won’t find that you have to pay extremely high to enjoy what Bali has to offer. For one example, Bali’s amazing natural scenery, from beaches to waterfalls, jungle hikes, rice terraces and more are all free to explore. Most of Bali’s main attractions, like temples and historical sites, have a small entrance fee, but are still totally affordable. (Entrance fees are typically 10,000 IDR to 30,000 IDR, so about £1-2.) Food is also really affordable, especially if you enjoy local restaurants.
