Transportation on Bali
Getting around Bali 'free-and-easy' using alternative transportation methods is generally speaking not that easy. There are loads of taxis and “bemos” (chartered vehicles with drivers) available on Bali, that's not the problem. You should take into consideration that there is almost always the D-tour to the commission paying Souvenir Shop and the same counts for the Restaurant referrals you get from your (taxi) driver which are commisionable to him as well most of the time. If you dare you can try to go by public transport / buses or minibuses, but the latter are usually crowded and you will have to stick to a 'schedule' which isn’t reliable nor convenient and can even ruin collecting beautiful impressions and sceneries from your vacation time.
The best choice for seeing the true spirit of Bali is actually by a rented motorbike or scooter. It is the fastest and the most comfortable way of seeing around. You can discover Bali on your rented motorbike or scooter to visit almost any place. Parks, temples, beaches, rice fields or any other attraction conveniently and really see a lot of Bali in just a few days. To really make the most out of your precious holiday time on Bali hiring a motorbike or a scooter gives you the freedom to enjoy your time on Bali to the max.
