7 Tips for Driving in Bali

If you are going to Bali for a holiday, it is important to choose good accommodation so you can really enjoy your stay. Instead of the usual hotel room, why not choose one of the many luxury Bali villas to stay in. You will get a place that is not right in the middle of the city, but this can be a good thing when you are trying to sleep.

Once you get settled it is time to look around and see the amazing sights that Bali has to offer. You can catch a taxi or hire a car with a driver for the first few days. Then you will get used to the traffic and decide to hire a motor scooter or even a car if you have a family. In this way you can get around independently for an affordable amount. So what do you need to know before driving in Bali?

  • Driving in Bali is not like any other country. Bali is unique and you have to learn to accept this. One of the main things to know is that you are responsible for whatever vehicle is in front of you, even if it cut in illegally, which is quite likely. You have to slow down and make room for it.
  • If you want to overtake – not recommended – you need to blow your horn loudly to let those ahead of you know you are coming. Otherwise they may decide to move across the road with no signal – this is normal practice in Bali and it is up to you to notice them.
