The Bali Story: Day 1

A smooth ride from KL to Denpasar though there was a slight delay from LCCT. Yes, we caught AirAsia flight from Brune to KL with a four hour transit before flying off to Denpasar (Bali). The air ticket cost roughly below BND300 if I'm not mistaken but we booked it months in advance. So if you're thinking of heading to Bali, you can go fly with AirAsia.

We landed by 7:40pm and there is no time difference with Brunei as I initially thought there was. The airport is quite big and if you haven't got your visa, then you can get your visa on the spot and go through the "Visa on Arrival" queue. I did my visa in Brunei and yea, Brunei ICI passport holders need to apply one whereas Brunei passport needn't one. Ah, the inconvenience.. this is something the immigration department or the Ministry of Home Affairs or the relevant ageny should do something to make it less troublesome for PRs like us who travels a lot.

The area we are staying is at Ubud which is far off from the usual popular areas such as Nusa Dua and Depansar. It took us at least an hour's drive from the airport and the traffic is predictable in a sense that it is more convenient to drive at night because of less traffic congestion. We had a great hospitality service from our new friend who is our driver, Pa' Madi, who also has been chauffeuring our buddies for many years.

We are staying at Natura Village Hotel and wow, I am quite impressed with the architecture, the ambience, the scenery and the facilities of our rooms. A two-bedroom villa with a mini pool and equipped with wifi too. All of these thanks to information provided by where we booked our room and after hours and days of homework, it paid off.

Ok, I won't ramble now and I'm gonna have my breakie soon.. Stay tune for more updates on my instagram @ranoadidas if you want to follow more current updates of me from Ubud, Bali. Have a great Monday ahead, peeps!!!

Enjoying the morning at our stay at Natura Village Hotel
