|Kuta Beach, Bali|
Departing from Singapore we took a 7:15am flight to Denpasar-Bali. The flight was 2.5 hours long. We encountered our first scam in Bali at the airport so be careful!
We stayed at Eden Hotel for the duration of our trip and had a good experience there. The hotel is new and clean. There was staff cleaning the place all the time and more staff at the outdoor pool making drinks and food. We were able to easily exchange money at the hotel counter. Don't trust the many money exchange stalls saying they don't take commission because they will find another way to take a portion of your money!
The sand was dirty with pieces of cigarette butts and beer cans. The water was brown and murky. It was not anything like the images you see on the internet but that is what happens to places that have been overpopulated with tourists.
After viewing the sunset at Kuta Beach we walked further to the newest mall called Beach Walk. The mall has clear western influence and were filled with more tourists than locals.
