5 Money Saving Tips for your Bali Vacation

Article by Anwar H

Despite what you may hear about global commodity price increases and inflation, Bali can still be a very inexpensive place to visit, provided you do your homework. While bargains may be increasingly hard to come by in the overdeveloped tourist oriented south of the island, the remainder of Bali remains a price-conscious traveller’s dream come true.

Here are a few tips for the frugal traveller in Bali:

Learn to bargain with shopkeepers! Expect to haggle at most open air markets and shops outside the upscale fixed-price stores in the South. Haggling is common for the locals of Bali, and there’s no reason why you shouldn’t join in the fun!Learn to love your local warung. Warungs are simple food stalls found all over Bali. They can provide an excellent dining experience at a fraction of the cost of your average meal at the hotel.Hiring a car with a driver can be very cheap in Bali, just make sure you hire somebody trustworthy who has been recommended by your hotel. Other inexpensive forms of travel in Bali include buses and rented motorbikes.If you look outside the few tourist dominated cities in Bali, you can often find great deals with smaller boutique hotels in less crowded parts of Bali.Not everything you do should cost money! There is no shortage of relaxing and rewarding activities you can take part in that won’t cost you a cent. These include taking in the sights, sounds and smells at the local open air market; observing (respectfully) a religious ceremony; going for a walk in the lush countryside; or just lazing about on the beach, soaking up the sun.

If you’re looking to invest in international property in Bali, then you should seriously consider Lovina Beach Resort in north Bali. Much more affordable than Bali’s tourist saturated south, Lovina Beach in the island’s north shore is a region with tremendous growth potential. A great Bali property investment opportunity right now, Lovina is a peaceful, quiet and green place to live with the added advantage of a low cost of living.
