We spent the last three nights in Ubud, and also the last three nights together, in a different location than Jati Homestay. So the morning of March 26th, we packed our bags together for the last time, checked out of the homestay and walked out of the alley. After checking in at Suwar Bungalows, we decided to walk the Campuhan ridge walk. We also went to probably the most famous rice fields of Bali, and unfortunately my sisters had to go back home. So I'm now a solo traveler!
So we have been to Seminyak, Amed and Lovina, and next up is probably the most touristy place of all of Bali. People come here for shopping, vegan food and yoga. I'm talking about Ubud of course! We saw a lovely temple, the famous market and went to the monkey forest of course. Read more about it here!
Life in Bali is cheap. I'm sure you've heard that before. And I'm definitely not here to tell you otherwise. Of course it depends on where exactly you stay and eat and shop, some places are more expensive than others. But overall, everything is less expensive than in the West, so Europe and America. Now I'm sure you're wondering what exactly things will cost you. Good news! I've got a whole list of what exactly everything costs in Bali, because I've kept all of the receipts I was given. Included in this article: groceries, entertainment, random, transport and restaurants.
After staying in Amed, on the east side of Bali, for 3 nights, we travelled to Lovina. A place on the North side of the island. Took quite some hours to get here, but it was worth it. Here, we also stayed for 3 nights. Which I feel was more than enough for the bungalow we were in. Why? Read it here!
The first thing we did after checking in, was getting some food or course! When we got back home after dinner, we suddenly heard this loud noise from a frog. Or so we thought. Upon further exploration, turned out it was a gecko! Other things that happened in Lovina: beach and a tour day with temples and monkeys.
Where to stay in Bali? I think this was our biggest search of the whole 'planning our trip to Bali' thing. Searching for the best flights didn't even take this long, lol. The first place we stayed at, we booked through Airbnb. My Airbnb experience in Japan was lovely, so that's why. The place was called Sunset Bungalows Bali.
