Our recent trip to Bali as part of our round the world trip was a different one. We were travelling on a budget. This meant watching every penny and keeping a record of what we spent money on. These are our tips on visiting Bali on a budget- especially for families. Even though this country is affordable, there are still ways to make it more economical.
While in Bali we visited many eateries but Warung Indonesia became a firm favourite and one that we wished we could go back to once we had moved to different parts of the Island.
Warung in Indonesian means little shop. Many locals put Warung at the front of their restaurant names and that way you know they are local. Warung Indonesia is located off Poppies 2 in Jalan Benesari close to Legian Street. As we stayed on Legian Street while in Legian it was only a five-minute walk from our hotel.
The restaurant has an array of local dishes on offer and also has a buffet style offering. This seemed to very popular with locals as well as tourists, however we did not get around to trying this but everyone seemed to be enjoying their choices.
Nusa Lembongan is an island located 30 minutes from Sanur Bali. In addition to the local villages there are hotels, guesthouses, and restaurants so a stay on the island is possible; otherwise many companies offer day trips from Bali.
We decided on a day trip to the island to see if it was somewhere we would want to return to at a later date for a longer stay. The tour included a return fast boat to the island, a mangrove tour, village tour, visit to several beaches on the island, lunch, and time at the Lembongan Beach Club Resort.
