Biku res­tau­rant My hus­band and I never miss break­fast or high tea at Biku res­tau­rant on Jl Petitenget in Seminyak. High tea can be Asian-style or tra­di­tional English and the break­fast is the best. See - Julie Puri Bali In­dah Puri Bali In­dah is my favourite res­tau­rant in Le­gian. It’s con­ve­niently lo­cated near the beach on Jl Me­lasti. The crab and corn soup is de­li­cious and the seafood fresh and pre­pared in an open kitchen. Make sure you leave room for the ba­nana pan­cakes. It’s hard not to go back ev­ery night. - Ju­dith Pizza Ba­gus Deli Pizza Ba­gus, on Jl Raya Pen­gosekan in Ubud, makes the best wood-fired piz­zas in Bali. Next door, the Pizza Ba­gus Deli has freshly baked baguettes, sour­dough, salami and a great range of cheese. We bought grissini sticks, baguettes, ham, olives and cheese to take back to our home­s­tay. We ate all of the Ba­li­nese food they had pre­pared and they ate all of the deli-style food we bought. Great fun. - Mark brand-new Beach­walk shop­ping cen­tre, on the beach­front be­tween Kuta and Le­gian. There are 200 shops and restau­rants that are open un­til mid­night. It also has Bali’s first mu­si­cal foun­tain and if you’re into fish and chips like me, eat at Fish & Co. - Ju­dith Delta Mart Delta Mart is a huge su­per­mar­ket on Jl Ray Adong in cen­tral Ubud. Ev­ery­thing you need is here in­clud­ing fresh fruit, veg­eta­bles, poul­try, meat, toi­letries and gen­eral gro­cery items. Delta Mart also has a tem­per­a­ture­con­trolled room for wine and spir­its. - Mark


Med­i­cal care If you re­quire any type of med­i­cal care while in Bali, go straight to BIMC. There are two hos­pi­tals, one in Kuta and one in Nusa Dua. Both cen­tres have highly ex­pe­ri­enced pro­fes­sion­als and are equipped with mod­ern tech­nol­ogy. Visit the web­site and take the contact num­bers with you. See Bim­ - Elisha Tax Make sure you have $US25 a per­son (must be in US cur­rency) to cover the cost of your visa on ar­rival in Bali. You will also need $RP150,000 ($A15) a per­son for de­par­ture tax. - David Trav­el­ling with kids If trav­el­ling with kids, don’t for­get to pack in­sect re­pel­lant, sun­screen and parac­eta­mol suit­able for chil­dren, teething re­lief and Aquaear. - Sally-Ann
