Getting Around Denpasar - Denpasar Survival Guide

Walking

Exploring a new place on foot is the best way to do so. Bali has stunning beaches and rice terraces, but it also has relatively shoddy roads and cracked sidewalks. The countryside does offer guided walking tours that go to places like Ubud Monkey Forest.

Bus

The longer routes between the regencies of Denpasar, Singaraja, Gilimanuk, and Amlapura are connected by buses, anyhow they are less preferred transportation These long-distance buses have at least one terminal in each town. The top fare is 10,000 IDR. However, there are more costly shuttle buses for visitors that are operated by businesses like "Perama."

Ojek

Ojek is a private motorcycle taxi that accepts paying customers.  You'll simply have to stand across one side of the street and wave your hands to signal that you need a ride, and an Ojek will halt for you. Before a few years ago, it was difficult to guarantee the safety of this service, but Ojeks has significantly improved in reliability with the introduction of smartphone apps like "Go Jek" and Uber's "UberMOTOR." The least expensive fare is IDR 30,000 for a 5-kilometer trip.

Taxi

In Bali, taxis are the most reliable mode of public transportation. These taxis are abundant and impossible to miss due to their striking blue color and the bluebird emblem. The drivers speak fluent English, and the prices are frequently about IDR 70,000. The costs are often approximately IDR 70,000, and the drivers are proficient in English. Avoid using taxis with damaged or nonexistent meters since you can be taken advantage of. Uber is also accessible in Bali and frequently has prices of around IDR 40,000, making it more reasonable than radio taxis.

Transport By Sea

You can go to the sister islands of Bali via local cruises. Because they are a part of expensive vacation packages that also include meals and a brief stay, they may be rather expensive. Conventional, inexpensive boats can be utilized for shorter distances, albeit their safety features are dubious.
