Hello all, My girlfriend and I (2 single girls in our late 20's from Canada) are thinking of setting up a trip to Bali for Mid-October. I know that in 2002 and 2005 a bombing has happened in Bali during October. How has Bali recovered since? Is October very quite during this period? We are thinking of staying at either Kartika Palace in Kuta or Padma Hotel in Legian which would you recommend in terms of being able to meet other travellers? Any other tips and suggestions would be great. Oh and we are looking at staying in Bali for a week and then heading to Lombok for 5 days and staying at the Sheraton Senggigi. Thank you!
