Denpasar, the capital city, is the main hub of the Indonesian province of Bali and is situated in the southern part of the island. It also acts as the major hub that connects many tourist destinations within Bali Island. Bristling with temples, palaces, and museums, the locals are accustomed to tourism and are naturally friendly. It is a notable shopping city with many options for even the most jaded of world shoppers. Denpasar also holds the seat of government in Bali and is home to the provincial Governor's office and the administration of the Regency of Badung. It is in Denpasar that the famous Bali Arts Festival is held annually. Denpasar may at first seem ill-adapted for international tourism, but actually, it is home to several historical, multi-cultural, traditional, and religious gems and definitely allures the tourists that step into its proximity.

Cleanliness-Medium , Efficiency-Low
Riding a taxi in Bali works the same way it does everywhere else: you hail a taxi from the curb; a taxi stops to pick you up, and off you go.
The blue taxis marked "Bali Taxi" (known as Blue Bird Taxis).
• Range: Limited to within South Bali and Ubud
• Cost: the Flag-down rate of IDR 5,000 (about fifty cents in U.S. currency), then IDR 2,500 (about a quarter) for every added kilometer.
If you have the cash to spare, you can hire a car in Bali, with the option to drive it yourself. If you rent from a reputable car company, you can have the benefit of driving your own vehicle to Bali's less-traveled destinations, with your range being limited only by your gas budget.

• Cost: Daily rates range from about $20 for a small car to about $60 for a large van, gas not included.
Motorcycle & Scooter Rentals
We've mentioned Bali's notoriously bad roads before, which should give you pause before you consider striking out on your own with a rented motorcycle or scooter. If you're a really good rider, then, by all means, rent a motorbike and try riding through Bali's roads.
• Range: Anywhere in Bali, as far as your gas budget will permit
• Cost: Daily rates range from about $4 to $10 depending on the engine displacement, gas not included
Rent a bicycle if you want to see Bali in the most earth-friendly way possible. If you choose to ride independently, you can see the Balinese countryside first-hand on your own schedule. Bali's bike track come in many forms, from paved roads to off-road tracks.
• Range: Generally limited to country roads in and around Ubud and Lovina—stay off of the highways in the south to be safe
• Cost: Tour operators may rent out bikes for about $2.50, or IDR 25,000 a day; package costs for day tours of certain Bali areas may cost more.
Tourist Shuttle Buses
Bus travel is not very well developed in Bali; most of the buses you'll see belong to bus charters set aside for tourist groups jaunting to places like Uluwatu. Bus options are not entirely absent, though.
Tourist shuttle bus services allow tourists to travel from point to point with the least amount of expense and hassle.
Public Transport: Bemo
To get around Bali with the least expense, try riding one of the minibusses called bemo that run on set routes around the island. Despite the low prices, drivers will still charge more for foreigners, so break out your haggling skills.
• Range: Everywhere in Bali
• Cost: Starts at about IDR 5,000 for short distances, but you'll be charged more if the driver knows you're not from around town.
Small dokar (pony carts) are still seen in parts of Denpasar and Kuta, but they're uncommon. Treatment of the horses is a major concern and there is no good reason to go for an expensive tourist ride.
Formal ojek is less common now that anyone with a motorbike can be a freelance ojek (stand by the side of the road, look like you need a ride and people will stop and offer). Fares are negotiable, but about 30,000Rp for 5km is fairly standard. Go-Jek is a popular mobile application that allows you to order on-demand motorcycle rides.
Pull up your Uber app while in Bali and have your ride come to you. Prices are published right in the app.
Travel between Bali, Lombok, the Gili Islands, and Lembongan is available through Bali Ferry with frequent departures during the day.
