Hi i am thinking of going to Bali in a few months can anyone tell me
the price of food and drink and day to day living
All depends. Which area and whether you want to eat like a local or need luxury. You can spend £25 and more per person on fish easily in Jimbarran or 80p on a meal of stir fried cumi cumi (squid) in Lovina. If you are reasonably modest in your tastes and are prepared to eat more local dishes, you can get an evening meal for under £2.50 in Warungs in most of Bali although the trendier types of cafe it will be much more expensive. Soft drinks are cheap. Beer comes in 640 ml bottles and is 5% they cost a little over a quid although you may find happy hour deals as low as 60p or 70p.
Sanur has a mix of expensive and more resonable places to eat and drink. Lovina in the north is cheaper although its black sand beach is not for everyone.
Place a further query if you need more info
Sorry forgot to mention wine is reasonably costly. Local made such as Hatten will cost about £4 to £4.50. Ausie wine is at least double depending which brand you buy.
Thanks for that sounds good to me
As we are in Sanur in next few weeks
any reasonably priced restaurants you would recommend?
thanks a lot
Map to help with location
Try these reasonable priced places all have good Bali food:
Jl. Danau Tamblingan #106 (map4)
Ketut’s Warung (Blanjong Warung)
Jalan Danau Poso 78, Blanjong (map 6)
Jl Danau Tamblingan #39 (map4)
Jl Danau Tamblingan #97 (map4)
And if you want snacks and Jazz
Jln. Bypass Ngurah Rai
If you want the very best of Indonesian cuisine (at a price 80, 0000 per head up) take to a taxi to Kuta to Ketupat on Legian, it is truely superb. Not sure about this time of year but in July/August you must book a day ahead to be certain of a table.
Try balieats.com for international restaurants.
I am sure you will have an excellent time in Bali, as I will in July.
