Kuta is the busiest city on Bali.
Nightlife, shopping and social life are the main things here. And they are never ending.
Kuta, Bali.. Only a few minutes from the airport you’ll have everything you need to have a perfect holiday. If you are looking for something besides relaxation and undisturbed “me-time” that is.
Keep a look out for the streets “Poppis 1” and “Poppis 2“. There are plenty of cheap and reasonable accommodation there.
Sights & Attractions
Kuta does not have any marked attractions it is more a city of self fulfillment. Clubs and bars fills every street and they are opened to late at night. Grab a few shots or drinks and then eat out at one of the many fast food chains or foodbars.
One popular place is Skygarden. No entry fee for foreigners and several floors with different music pounding on each floor.
Go to a fish footmassage and have tropical fish eat your dead skin off your feet making them soft and silky.
Or you could spend a day at the beach, attend a surfing (good waves for beginners) lesson or go shopping.
Kuta is a surf city and the shopping is dedicated to it. You’ll find shops like Quicksilver, Ripcurl, Hurley, Surfer Girl and other big brands. But also smaller brands crowding the streets. There is something for everybody in Kuta.
Taxis are cheap and come in plenty. They will honk the horn for your attention asking if you want transport somewhere even though there are a hundred taxis passing by. You can ride a horse and carriage that will get you anywhere in Kuta. just make sure the horse looks fed and healthy. Some horses look very mistreated and miserable. Not something worth supporting.
Rent a scooter but be aware that helmets are mandatory and the traffic can be heavy and hard to manoeuvre in.
