Tips for Bali-Indonesia Holiday- Part 1

 I just back from Bali- Indonesia 2 weeks ago and had a great time throughout 3 days 4 night annual company trip. It took 3 hours flight depart from Singapore- Changi Airport to Bali- Denpasar airport. Since my company covered air fare and accommodation for the trip, I just prepared 200SGD for the this trip and everything just nice (*cough* well planned)
My Itinerary for 3 days 4 nights:
Arrived Bali on 14 March-9.30pm
15 March- Day trip to Bali Central region
16 March- Day trip to Bali Southern region 
17 March- Free & Easy at Kuta Beach. Departed to SG.

The hotel I stayed called Legian Paradiso Hotel which located at Central Kuta-Bali, 10mins walking distance to Kuta Beach, Sky Garden (happening night life place in Kuta city).
Tips 1: The hotel rate is quite reasonable and can get more discount rate from www.agoda.com .

The hotel provides free wifi services and you can stay connected with your friends. If you are staying here, grab a chance to try japanese sashimi at 福太郎 located beside the hotel. 
The sashimi really fresh with reasonable price. 
Overall is good and I would rate 7/10
 

Tips 2: If you first time been to Bali and wish to visit most of the interest places, minimum you need 2 days.
 Day 1 :for Bali Central region- Ubud, Kintamani, Besakih and more
 Day 2 for Bali Southern region-  Tanah Lot, Uluwatu, Nusa Dua

Tips 3: Find and get a tour packages in advance before travel to Bali. It much more cheaper than you get at Bali Airport.

First interest place- Pura Tirtha Empul located at Ubud and was built on 926 AD, entrance fees needed.

Third interest place Kintamani- the active volcano of Mount Batur.
