Much of the following advice given about money has been learned through the school of hard knocks. I recently provided these tips to a friend, then it occurred to me the list might be helpful for some of you and your friends.
A Quick Visit to Bangkok for Temples and Buddhas
Since it is such a long flight from Bali to the US, we opted to do a stopover in Bangkok. We decided to stay a few days to break up our trip back to the US, even though we have been to Bangkok a few times, we really like the city.
Scuba Diving and Good Eats in Bali
During our five-week stay in Bali, we spent a fair amount of money and time diving. While we mentioned that we didn’t go to Bali for the food, we did spend some time at restaurants and we even took a Balinese cooking class.
Great Deals and Visiting Balinese Temples
With five weeks in Bali, we had time to catch up on life stuff including medical, dental, exercise, and of course laying around the pool. We also had plenty of time to visit some interesting and unique Balinese Hindu temples.
Learning About the Balinese People and Generally Checking Out Bali
For people based in the US or in Europe, Bali is a real challenge to visit. Since we were in the area we figured this was our chance and we weren’t disappointed. We really liked the vibe, the people, the food, and the prices of everything in Bali.
