    Is it easy to rent a motorbike for a few days to explore Bali?

    Yes, it is very easy to do. As a guide, you will pay around $10usd a day for a basic car (like a Jeep Jimney) so aim to pay at least half this per day for a motorbike and be prepared to haggle. Ask your hotel reception for who they recommend neaby to arrange a rental. You do not require an international drivers licence in INdonesia, HOWEVER, if you are stopped by the police they may ask you to pay them a "fine" for not having one. Not a problem, pay them 50,000-100,000idr and be very polite and friendly! If you're heading East, the landscape is spectacular. Be sure to follow the coast road through Amed and jump out for a snorkel, it is very good in this area. Enjoy!! almost 9 years ago

    Best places to see in Indonesia (aside from Bali)?

    Consider checking out Lake Toba in Northern Sumatera. There is an island inside the lake which is inside a volcanic crater. The weather is cooler here, it is clean, not too touristy, nice to swim in the lake, plenty to see around the island. i highly recommend staying at Catalina in traditional batak houses, from a paltry 6000idr per night! almost 9 years ago

    Whats the best pre paid sim card for 10 days in Bali ?

    Telkomsel simPATI sim cards have worked well for me the last few times in Indonesia. When I call Australia, if I enter the code 01017 before the country code etc the call rates are insanely cheap (a few cents a minute). almost 9 years ago
