Jaian

Live in Darwin, Australia, looking to make my first trip to Bali, and I don't really wanna tour the place on my own though...

Just had Lasik surgery in July, and looking forward to trying out activities my previously shitty eyesight prevented me in the past eg. surfing, windsurfing, scuba diving, white water rafting etc.

Jaian General itinerary:

Bali: Monday 21-May-12 to Wednesday 23-May-12 (bars, beaches and water sports)

Kuala Lumpur: Wednesday 23-May-12 to Thursday 24-May-12 (basically an overnight stopover, with a day for sight seeing)

Hong Kong: Thursday 24-May-12 to Tuesday 29-May-12 (the highlight of the tour for me, focused around food, Buddhas and bars)

Phuket: Tuesday 29-May-12 to Thursday 31-May-12 (hire a speedboat for a day trip aroudn the best beaches/islands)

Singapore: Thursday 31-May-12 to Saturday 2-Jun-12 (food, bars and amusement parks!)

Bali: Saturday 2-Jun-12 to Monday 4-Jun-12 (last minute shopping before heading home)

Airfares starting in Bali, going through all the countries and back to Bali again came to about USD $250, though I did get the tickets on sale. Guessing the actual airfare prices would be close to double that?

Jaian Hi Walls, if you're in Bali surfing now, I'd like to hear about your experiences, and recommendations! Thanks, Jaian

Jaian How long are you planning to tour Bali for? To be honest I'll probably make the trip near the end of this year if I can find an earlier group, but otherwise I'll keep this trip in mind!
Walls
Walls I am thinking about going to Bali at the end of this year (December)... Let's keep in touch!

Jaian Oh well, booked my trip to Bali for the first fortnight of March, so I guess I can't join your surfing trip.

Jaian I'm planning my first trip to Bali specifically to learn to surf. There's places in Australia (eg. Sydney/Brisbane etc) where I could learn as well, but not only is Bali closer, but much cheaper. I can only go for a week if I go though, maybe 10 days at most. I'd like to hear more details about your planned trip, I might end up going...Bali is only a few hours flight from where I live.

Walls Hi Jaian! The fact is that I do not have specific plans yet. Only my trip dates. I will arrive on December 1 and will leave around mids january...

I have been looking for some info about Bali:
- Accomodation is cheap: Between 10-20 $/night (it is also possible get lower prices). Meals are also cheap.
- Depending on where you stay and where you wanna surf, it is recommendable to rent a motorbike (or a car for 3-4 people)
- Kuta is crowded and good for party but not for relax.
- You have to consider where you are going to surf (Kuta, Sanur, for begginers to intermediates) in order to choose accomodation and/or transport.

What I will do as soon as I get there is to visit a surfshop (I have a couple of contacts there) and ask for some advice about where to surf (and, therefore, sleep), where to get a motorbike (or other transport, if necessary), how to contact a cheap local surf instructor, etc.

Just let me know when you plan to go there. If we arrive on the same dates, we can share some surf lessons (and then go surf together and take a look at each other)

Keep in touch!

Jaian Hey Walls, I got a great discount on airfare to Bali ($137 return) but for March, so unfortunately can't make it on your trip. I'd like to hear how you go with your surfing expedition though, please do share your experiences next month! Regards, Jaian
