If you want to have cash, in some tourist places or city area you can find ATM very easy with different limit withdraw. For Bank here in Bali normally just open 08.00-14.00 Monday to Friday. Also for donation and entrance ticket, they are expecting you to use small money just because sometime they don’t have any small change.
Please kindly always change your money in authorized money changer. Because some small shop or restaurant they don’t receive any other currency other than Indonesian Rupiah. Please be aware if you want to change your money in unauthorized money changer because they will ask you for some commission or other dirty trick.

Ride Scooter, Motorcycle or Drive a Car
For Safety Reason, please don’t ride or drive or even try to ride/ drive scooter, motorcycle/ car if you don’t know how to do it. Or even if you know how to do it but you don’t have any International license, please don’t do that. Bali’s traffic is a little bit different compare to other country as we have so many scooter/ motorcycle. And also because of our traffic/ tourist police are really strict about it and some tourists got accident when they ride or drive a car. Many of them also get killed.
