Travel to Bali and Sunset on the beach

Flew on Virgin 10.10am flight to Denpasar which took 6 1/2 hours. First time on Virgin and not impressed - no TV and 2 toilets for the whole plane. The line for the toilets never shortened!! Cost $35 USD for my visa on arrival. Bali has a massive new modern airport. Outside I haggled over the taxi price and paid 80,000 rupiah ( $8 AUD) for 20 minute ride to Kuta Beach. There was absolutely nothing I recognised about anything at all. I was last here in 1978.

I was just here for 2 days to buy clothing stock to take back for work. What I couldn't fit in my suitcase I mailed back in 2 boxes . My hostel was totally awesome - clean and very modern and boutiquey. Privacy curtains around the bed , own light and a big locker under the bed. There was a media room , cafe and plunge pool. It was only 1 block from the Bali bombing memorial and would have been flattened from the blasts. It was about a15 minute walk down to Kuta Beach to watch the stunning sunsets.

I shopped far and wide down to Legian Beach and either caught a taxi back to the hostel to drop off the shopping or had an owner drop me back on her motorbike.

Shops, restaurants and massage places are right outside where I stay and it is totally safe to walk around until late. Each afternoon I would sit on the beach to watch the sunset

It was a successful shopping trip and clothes were very cheap and much cooler than in Thailand or Cambodia
