Denpasar-Bali Island, Indonesia (ID)
Bali's Ngurah Rai International Airport (also known as Denpasar Airport) is located near the town of Kuta, 13km south from the capital, Denpasar. It has undergone extensive renovations in the past few years, and is now a modern, airy, more efficient transport hub.
The airport has two terminals: Domestic and International terminals, that share an Arrivals level. Between the two terminals, there's a 'Festival Plaza' with shops and restaurants. The new L-shaped International Terminal, with iconic Balinese-style, wave-shaped roof, has three levels:
Note: Arriving passengers are separated by visa status. Those needing a visa on arrival will be required to pay USD 35 at customs. Departure taxes are now included in the ticket price.
There are no water fountains after security check.
Taxis and buses are available for getting to and from the airport. We recommend a taxi as a cheap and comfortable option.
Prepaid vouchers are available at the airport in Arrivals, with Ngurah Rai Airport Taxi. You take a slip of paper and pay the driver on arrival. Rates, based on distance zones, are fixed and are generally higher than meter rates. Prices are per car, not per person. (If you want to save money and pay by meter, we recommend Blue Bird Taxis. The light-blue taxi fleet has a reputation for honest drivers.)
Beware: Illegal taxi drivers may try and solicit your business outside the Arrivals hall.
Cost: IDR 70,000-90,000
Location: International Terminal, Landside, Arrivals - exit through doors after customs, turn left and the ticketing booth is on your right

Bus is a much cheaper option, and there is a good connection available. An air-conditioned bus service called Trans Sarbagita runs from Batu Bulan to Nusa Dua.
Cost: IDR 3,500 one-way
