Itinerary: Day 1

We check in Teba house about 3pm. After rest and shower we went for evening walk at Ubud area and took dinner at Bebek Bengil dirty duck diner. The sunset in Bali was very early. The day was turn dark around 7pm. I love the evening walk in Ubud. Not so hot and not so cold. It was just nice.

I got to know Bebek Bengil Restaurant was famous for their Bebel Bengil Crispy Duck which only in Ubud from online search. We try it out on the 1st day. The place was huge, with an outdoor garden nicely lit to achieve a great ambiance, with lots of running water and flowers. You can sit in traditional booths and make the experience a bit more "local". The walk through the garden towards the various dining rooms was delightful. The table we chose gave us a great view of the rice fields. Too bad the day was turn dark when we arrive there for dinner. Not able capture the rice fields view. Check more detail in

We order the BBQ ribs and Bebek Bengil Crispy duck. My husband and I love the BBQ ribs compare to the Bebek Bengil Crispy duck. The ribs portion was big. The price was reasonable cost less than RM60 including the drink.

We stay at Teba house in Ubud for 5 days 4 nights to avoid check in and check out with our luggage. You can check out the details under We book the Superior room(Twin AC Bed) and it cost Rp.200.000.which less than RM80 per day. The rates include the daily simple breakfast and wifi internet access which I think worth for the price for short stay. The breakfast is rotating everyday. I personally like the banana pancake toping with desiccated coconut.

Teba house was beautiful decorated with natural garden and close to the great spots for dinners and shops. I like the view just outside of our room.You can easily find shuttle bus, travel agent around the area too.

Flight booking

We found out no direct flight from Penang to Bali and vise versa. A few options were available which from (1) Penang to Kuala Lumpur then Kuala Lumpur to Bali or (2)Penang to Singapore then Singapore to Bali. We only book our air ticket end of May 2010. We were lucky able to book it as very hard to get available slot from Penang to Bali and Bali back to Penang when it close to peak season. The peak season for Bali is the months of July, August, and September (this the main holiday season in Australia and New Zealand). The weather is most dry in these months, and it is likely to rain very rarely. We took Airasia on 28 June (Monday) at 7.10am and reach Kuala Lumpur at 8am. Then connected Airasia at 10.55am and reach Bali at 1.55pm. The timing gap is just nice as we don’t need to wait too long in the airport.

Plan your trip early to avoid expensive flight cost and long waiting time in airport.

Transportation in Bali

There were a few options you can choose for the transportation in Bali. You can took shuttle bus which cost cheaper but you will share with at least more than 6 passengers. Also normally the shuttle bus company have  defined the tour destination. I prefer to have private driver and own plan tour destination. Besides i can choose my own lunch/dinner destination along the way. I started search online and ask for driver contact from friend who visited Bali before. Finally i am able to get most cheapest and good condition car from online. I manage to get 350.000rupiah/day with Toyota Kijang/Toyota Avanza  for 2 persons. You can find out yourself under . Tour cost includes car with AC, fuel, car parking fee and English speaking driver.Tour excludes meal and entrance fees. No deposit needed, payment can settle in the end of day trip by cash in Rupiah. We visited bali for 5 days 4 nights and we book the private driver for 3 days. We call blue taxi on the rest of the day which use car meter. The price is reasonable. It cost 30.000 rupiah for 2 persons from Kuta Square to airport. Always ask the driver to use car meter except on the airport where prices are fixed.
