For short distance transportation taxi is sufficient to be used in Bali.There are no trains in Bali Island to be used to reach tourism objects in Bali. Bali has Ngurah Rai International Airport to facilitate air transportation. Bali has some seaports, such as the port of Gilimanuk which connect Bali Island and Java.

The rental fare for regular motorcycles is usually about 35 - 50 thousand rupiah per day and semi-big motorcycle about 60 - 80 thousand rupiah per day. Some of the motorbike rental equipped with a stuff to hang surf board beside the bike’s body. When the travel routes to be visited are just around the coast and the city it’s good to ride a regular motorcycle.
