Different Modes of Transport to reach Bali

Bali by Air :

Bali is well connected with many parts of the world. The best, cost-effective choice is to fly to Bali and land at the Ngurah Rai International Airport, located on the southern side of Bali. Some of the major airlines operating between India and Bali are Malaysian Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Emirates, Qatar Airways, Malindo Air, Scoot Airways, Air Asia, etc. The region is more accessible from all airports in India, making it the easiest way to access Bali.

The Ngurah Rai International Airport also called the Denpasar International Airport is located at a  distance of 13 kilometers from the city center. Once in Bali, there are several local taxis plying in and out of the cities, helping the transport to and from the airport easier. All major Indian cities have flights operating to Bali.

For road trippers, those who are excited to live the gypsy life, Bali cannot be directly reached via road. The route starts from India, takes you to Thailand via Myanmar, then takes you to Malaysia. From Malaysia you can choose to drive till Singapore. However once you reach Singapore, there are only ferry options available towards Jakarta. From Jakarta, steering 1200 km down, you can reach Bali. Although there is a lot of pleasure in road tripping, it takes almost 2 weeks to reach Bali, which is not recommended at all. Make sure that you carry a valid visa and International road permits with you. It’s important that you carry the permits with you as you are crossing international borders on your trip to Bali. To highlight, road trips can be really expensive compared to other means of travel, it is also tiring as there is really a lot of driving before you reach your vacation spot.
