Bali Complete Travel Guide

Welcome to Sakre Cubes! This is your beloved Travel Blogger Sagar. I hope you are planning a trip to Bali and my video on Bali has got you to this blog page. As there are numerous aspects that I couldn’t cover in the video, I have included all of those specifics in this blog article. My objective is to share my own experiences and motivate you to plan your travels more efficiently.


Before you travel to Bali

  1. Use Skyscanner to book the flights. This website gives the cheapest flights and optimal prices. Average round trip cost to Bali is 40k-45k per person
  2. Local currency in Bali is called the Indonesian Rupiah or IDR in short. There are two ways to convert INR to IDR.

    1. Cash: Convert INR ➡️ USD in India, and USD ➡️ IDR in Bali. You can get INR to USD converted at your door step through online platforms. We use bookmyforex (makemytrip subsidary)  which offers good price.
    Tip: Use my referral code SAGAV6TOaFL to get 300 off on your first purchase.

    2. Card: Carry a Zero Forex Card like Niyo Global to make payments and withdraw money at ATMs in Bali. 
    Tip: Signup for Niyo Global (Equitas account) account with my referral code SAGAR3143 to get 250 in your account.

Question: Can we stay in Kuta and Ubud and cover south, central, east, southern east and north of Bali? Or do you suggest different places apart from these? Our stay is for 6 days 7 nights.

  3. Hi! You are doing great service! I have a question. Is December month will be too crowded? We plan to go on December 1st

  4. Hi Sagar, I’m a fellow kannadiga and have followed your YT channel for quite some time now and you are doing really well.

    I’m planning a trip to Bali and your videos are my go to guide. Many thanks. You have already explained many things and have helped me plan my trip through your videos and your blog.

    I have one doubt. I have booked Kana Kuta Hotel for 4 nights and Puri Kobot for next 4 nights. I’m confused about the stay though (Mainly between Kana Kuta and Ramadan Encore) Since you have stayed in Kana Kuta, is it a good place? This is our first international travel and I want a nice place for me and my wife.

    Many thanks!

  5. I appreciate you providing such a thorough itinerary for arranging a trip to Bali, Sagar! Your careful attention to detail, covering everything from needed travel items to suggested lodging, is immensely beneficial for anyone wishing to discover this stunning location.
