Getting Around Bali

The best way to get around Bali is with a hired car and driver. This option gives you the freedom of roaming around the country without the hassle of having to drive yourself. Biking is another option, just be prepared to weave through chaotic traffic. Boats are great way to get to neighboring islands, but they are not frequently used to get around Bali.
