Bali

The South

The last couple of days I wanted to stay closer to the airport, not having to deal with a long drive to catch the flight back to Bangkok.


This time we stayed in Kuta, that met all the cliches: white sand beach, palm trees, surf (well, not real surf, though), surf boards, people offering beach chairs and beer, music, well, you get the picture. I have been reading that the beach at Kuta is dirty, but that must have been a thing of the past. It was spotless clean, cleaned by an army of workers every morning after sunrise.


Our hotel was right on the beach with a room with "ocean view". And it really was ocean view without stretching the neck, sunset right in front. Otherwise, Kuta and similar locations are not really my thing. Apparently it is the more quiet season, even though there were plenty of tourists with a number of bars to match, music and live Australian football. So different from the villages of the interior.
