“Millions are not needed here, that's for sure,” a couple of Russian travelers said when they visited the paradise island of Bali – tourist dream of many compatriots. In their Yandex.Zen channel, they calculated the cost of living on a resort island and were surprised that you can live there on a budget.
“Most of the stereotypes about this place are about the fact that it is necessary to live in a villa here, eat in restaurants, take a taxi, and only spend, spend, spend – otherwise nothing. But, most likely, many do not even quite understand what a big island it is, and, for a moment, it is 145 by 80 kilometers. Well, and, accordingly, there are quite different places here,” the traveler said and added that in the tourist environment, such villages as Ubud, Kuta, Canggu, which are all located in one place, around the capital of the island, are mainly “promoted”. – Denpasar, where the airport is located.
According to the Russian, the island of Bali can hardly be called an island, because. being there, people definitely don’t have such a feeling. In a short time, a couple of tourists managed to live in five different places. “At first we spent the night with a local student, and then visited 2 hotels and 2 guesthouses. In the first case, we lived for free at all (couchsurfing helped us), and then we rented both a cheap place and 10 times more expensive to compare, but now we are staying at a local guesthouse in Ubud. The whole problem here is that a variety of places to live – you can just get lost, well, there are too many,” he explained.
In addition, the tourist added that a hotel that is not always expensive and presentable in pictures will be the same in reality and warned against blindly trusting photos from booking applications. “Therefore, it’s better to ride a little first and see different options, and then stop for the night,” the author advised. in a guesthouse – 2,000 rubles per week
< li>Laundry – 28 rubles for 1 kg of clothes
“This is not the cheapest, even if you look for more, you can live cheaper, we have so far stopped in a place that is more- they liked it less,” the Russian noted, adding that so far they are quite satisfied with their temporary place of residence, tk. everything is nearby.
