The great es­cape

hellobali Guide to Bali - - TABLE OF CONTENTS -

Bali’s pic­turesque beach, curl­ing waves and tran­quil am­biance at­tracted vis­i­tors from around the globe. Though some ar­eas are more fre­quently vis­ited, each of­fers its own unique ac­tiv­ity and at­trac­tion. Here are some of the best places to visit while you’re in the is­land.

SEARCH­ING FOR VIN­TAGE CLOTH­ING is not yet a habit cul­ti­vated in Bali, or in In­done­sia as a whole. But those who take much plea­sure in the adren­a­line-pump­ing trea­sure hunt over vin­tage gar­ments should char­ter a car to Pasar Kodok in Ta­banan. It’s a muddy, swel­ter­ing hot open mar­ket that lures only the cu­ri­ous. Some ex­pats who have lived on the is­land for more than five years of­ten an­nounce their find­ings hap­pily after a day well spent in the roughly trans­lated Frog Mar­ket. Jack­ets, pants, blouses, and jeans are all on sale here, and for only ten bucks you can go home with not just one or two, but three items. That is, as long as you’ve honed your bar­gain­ing skills.
