Situated about two hours flight from Singapore, the Island of the gods as it is also known, is easily accessible through an international airport at Denpasar.

Arrival and getting around will not be a problem even if you will be visiting Bali for the first time.

When traveling overland, vehicles are used as the main mode of transport.
