Is it cheap to travel to Bali? Bikini malfunction
I travel to work from anywhere , bootstrap side projects into open startups and only own what fits in my backpack. I also made 12 startups in 12 months. Follow me on Instagram , Twitter or read my blog. You can buy my book MAKE now. My life at home wasn't really working out. I was browsing Twitter, when somebody sent me the video of Hubud , and I was pulled in again: A coworking space made out of bamboo where National Geographic filmmakers worked from? It was in Bali though. Wait, I despised Bali. In my head Bali was a party island full of Australians in neon tank tops I had to avoid at all costs. Something like an even worse version of Koh Phangan. I wanted to avoid seeing any more neon tank tops. I did my research and it seemed like the image I had of Bali though, the beach party scene, it was true. That was Bali too. But that was just in the south of the island in a place called Kuta. Okay, just avoid Kuta at all cost I thought. So that bamboo coworking space that was awesome? In fact, Hubud was located in Ubud. And Ubud was a hippie village in the center of the island: A little higher in altitude and a little breezier too. Ubud, a place where people with mid-life crises come to find themselves. That was pretty fitting as I was just in an existential crisis myself. Let's go I made a small stop in Bangkok where I stayed in an airport hotel. It was a nice transition. I literally just ate fried rice, swam lanes in the pool and had breakfast by the side of the river. It felt fun being back in Bangkok after 6 months away. I felt home here immediately. Then I made my way to Bali, I landed in Denpasar, Bali's very modern airport and took a taxi to my hotel. The taxi driver was friendly and more so than Thai, most of the Indonesians spoke pretty good English. Whereas the average Thai, well they really don't speak a word of English really. Coffee isn't coffee My driver kept asking me "you want some coffee? I'd expect my driver to stop at the next gas station and we'd get some. Instead nothing happened for an hour. I was like "how about that coffee, huh? So 30 minutes later we park in front of the jungle. He says, "coffee here, go in to the jungle". I'm like, those Indonesian gas stations are deep into the jungle, that must be a cultural thing, but hey cool, why not. I say, "sure you wait here, and I'll get two okay? They must really love their coffee here, because they call their entire gas station after it. I follow a path, and meet lots of people clothed in traditional Indonesian clothes. They lead me to a table. There's 3 guys and 2 girls now pouring me my coffee: I'm like "no no, you don't get it, I need my takeaway coffee! They get it and get me a bag of coffee. They see it's real Indonesian coffee. I'm like, "no like in a cup". Then it hits me. This is a coffee farm, and this is not a gas station. On the way to my hotel after a long flight, I'm suddenly on a coffee tour. I get furious and run out. Back at my driver, I tell him "what the fuck, that's not takeaway coffee". I'm angry because just 15 minutes into my arrival in Bali, someone has been trying to scam me with a stupid tour. As much as it's a funny communication problem, it's also ridiculous that the taxi that your own hotel sent you and you paid for, is trying to upsell you WHILE your bags are in the car with a 2 hour long coffee tour. It's not really okay. That kinda set the tone for the tourist parts of Bali. They're full of sleazy sales people that are trying to make you pay for stupid overpriced tourist shit you don't want. The real locals are cool. But many just want to do whatever to make money off of you. You get good at detecting and avoiding them though: Arriving in Ubud I booked a cute little hotel room in the Indraprastha Homestay in the center of Ubud, well just outside the tourist center I think. Ubud is tiny, it literally consists of two vertical roads and one horizontal road on top: The one horizontal road on top is called Jalan Raya or Ubud Main Road , here's where most tourists go and stay. The left vertical one is Jalan Monkey Forest, this street is very clean and pretty hip. Then there's the right vertical road which is called Jalan Hanoman. This one has broken sidewalks and it's generally a bit less developed, but a lot more real. There's also little cute streets between those two too like the connecting Jalan Dewi Sita, they have lots of little restaurants or Warung's. Yes, Jalan means road. My home I checked into my hotel. Indraprastha was like a big patch of land, with walls around it, some dogs and chickens in it, and then it looked kinda like a temple complex. But every temple was a house or hotel room. I got my room, put my stuff down, showered, and then looked out over my balcony. It's insane how many animals you hear here. Bali is like a constant pretty crazy loud zoo. Waking up in Bali must be one of the best wake up experiences I've ever had: The roosters will gradually wake you up from 7, and then they go full on reggeaton loudness war blasting around Then you add the street dogs barking and yes you'll be awake! It's cool inside my room yay, aircon! I get out of bed and open my balcony doors. There's a soft breeze and it's already warming up. I have breakfast on my balcony which is pancakes, WHY?! Pack my backpack and walk out. On my little daily stroll to the coworking space, Hubud, I see lots of stuff. I started to explore and the first thing I wanted to see was Hubud. That mysterious bamboo coworking space. It was just a 5 minute walk from the middle of Jalan Hanoman to Hubud. They're opposite the Monkey Forest, which is, well, a jungle park full of monkeys. The monkeys get pretty crazy and they go outside the park too. They generally don't bite, but they will fuck around with you. When I was walking next to the park once with my takeaway coffee yes I found a real one this time , a monkey stopped in front of me and started screeching loudly. I was stunned, but everyone else especially the locals around me laughed it off. My first day at Hubud Hubud is even more impressive than the video. It's indeed all bamboo. There's an incredibly relaxed vibe here. Again it's beautiful people. They're all kinda working on their laptops and lounging around. People whisper and they're nice. It's just really a very nice vibe. The view at Hubud is incredible too. In Hubud, I do some work and meet Vitto.
