Visitors looking to save their pennies will be happy to hear that there’s no shortage of things to do in Bali on a budget. The island’s many free festivals—Sanur Festival, Nusa Dua Fiesta, and Denpasar Festival—are a great way of gaining insight into the country’s rich heritage and local traditions. Travelers can discover more about Balinese art without breaking the bank by heading to one of Ubud’s many ornate Hindu temples, before making their way to Pura Taman Saraswati for a traditional outdoor dance performance played out against the backdrop of the temple’s tranquil pond. Sanur’s bustling night market is a wonderful place to while away an evening, soaking up the vibrant colors and sounds, and filling up on the market’s delicious low-cost local produce. For some cheap and cheerful relaxation, head to Kuta Beach and soak up the sun from dry land as you watch local surfing pros take on Bali’s famous waves.

Where to stay in Bali

When it comes to budget accommodation in Bali, many visitors opt for Kuta, the island’s main tourist hub and center of Bali’s vibrant nightlife. Nearby Legian Beach is quieter but also offers a good range of discount hotels and is lined with stalls offering cheap and tasty eats. Travelers looking to get in touch with nature should head to the picturesque town of Bukit, nestled in the lush Sumatran jungle. Another great alternative for a budget stay in Bali is Ubud. Surrounded by rolling rice paddies, this cultural heartland of the island is a great draw for creative and artistic types the world over.

How to get to Bali

Ngurah Rai International Airport, also known as Denpasar International Airport, is the main airport for international arrivals. Despite its name, the airport is not actually located in Denpasar but around half an hour away in Tuban, between Kuta and Jimbaran. Direct bus crossings are available by ferry from Java and Lombok, a great budget option for those with time to spare. The cheapest option for airport transfer is to flag a Blue Bird cab from outside the airport, rather than booking a prepaid cab from inside the airport. The cheapest way to get around Bali is by public bus or bemo.
