This is one of the things to know before you go to Bali.
As I said that the value of Rupiah is low against Rupees. Here are some denominations to look at. They have a note for 1 Lakh as well, in red.
WHERE TO STAY IN BALI?
Stay near Seminyak beach or Kutta beach, Seminyak beach has a good atmosphere with a lot of bean bags, seating under an umbrella. Even if you don`t stay near it, atleast visit it once. Nearby you will also find shopping square with brands like DC
Kutta beach is calm, not as happening as the one mentioned above BUT it has a wonderful mall, right across the road, surrounded by the street market and restaurants/cafes.
Both the beaches are good for surfing. If you want to do diving then stay in the Southeastern area.

ATTRACTIONS IN BALI
It is the volcano which recently erupted, I visited the place and found it mesmerizing.
Before you think that I have googled this pic, I must tell you, I am the one who clicked it. 😀 All the black part is the area till where the lava has reached during the previous eruptions.
Apart from this beautiful view, you can also enjoy trekking on the volcano. The trek starts early morning around 4 am and the trek takes approx 2hours. Once you are on the top you can enjoy unparalleled beauty during sunrise. The entire trip from hotel pickup to hotel drop takes approx 11hrs and costs approx 60USD. You can find more information here.
– Ubud (Market)
When I am the writer, how is it possible to miss out on malls n markets..haha,, So Ubud is a nice market, you will find some local clothing shops, restaurants, home accessories etc.. Out of everything, I found home decor products really attractive n cheap. You will find a good Indian restaurant as well there, it is called Queen`s land of India.
– Coffee/Tea farm
If you are fond of tea/coffee then this is the place for you. While returning from the Mt. Agung, this farm is on the way back to South Bali.
You can watch the coffee beans being extracted or being MANUFACTURED naturally! Yes, I`ll tell you how…
These little cats like animals eat the coffee beans, digest it and POOP them out n that poop is used to make THE BEST COFFEE of the world!!! known as Kopi luwak.
So coffee lovers let me know if you want me to get some poop for you, lol..
You can also buy some spices, they are really beneficial..
Visit any temple to know the culture of the island and the fun part is that you will have to wear a lungi before entering the temple, even if you are a girl…Yes, you read it right… Even better, let me show it to you..
– Beaches (Watch people surfing, I wish I could do it!)
++ Seminyak beach
++ Kutta beach
++ Beachwalk mall
(As mentioned above)
– Brands to look for(Brands priced cheaper than in India)
++ Mango (Very cheap, almost half prices)
++ Body shop
– Good brands(Good collection)
++ New look
++ Pull n Bear
– When somebody passes away in Bali, the entire house is decorated. The gate is decorated with a butterfly-like structure. So don`t think that any happy function is going on.
– Good exchange rates are available behind beachwalk mall. Just count the money twice before leaving.
