Anyways, now the realpurpose of today’s blog is to actually show you how far you can stretch 100 US dollars while traveling to a beautiful tropical paradise, such as Bali, Indonesia, soto start off today’s blog.

traveling to a beautiful tropical paradise, such as Bali, Indonesia

we’re gonna be startingit off, where you will be, at the Denpasar Airport, so let’s go ahead and cut right to the video. (rhythmic music) I don’t know how many ofyou guys are millionaires, I definitely am not, until Icame to Indonesia, where for about $70 US, you canbecome a millionaire. So now we have exchanged our 100 US, we are now holding 1.41million Indonesian rupiah. My goal is to make thislast three days, enjoyably. We’re not gonna starve ourselves. So this right here is stage one of taxis, and unless you’re spending the big money then you’re not gonna be coming here. Just as we exit the terminal,this is like phase two of the taxi drivers, and thisis when they typically like to swarm, they can be quitegood salesmen, and sometimes I do take this method toget home, because it’s quick and convenient, but the bestprice I’ve ever got from here to Canggu is about170,000 Indonesian rupiah or about like 14 US dollars. That’s quite expensive, soI’m gonna show you a way you can do it for literallyone third of the price. Taxi, how much to Canggu? – It’s 500. – [Christian] 500? – Yes. – [Christian] What’syour best price though? – That’s the normal price. – [Christian] That’s normal price? – Yeah, it’s around one hour from here. It’s high season in Bali this moment. – [Christian] High season right now. – Yeah.- Can you do 150,000? – 150, that’s not possible. – [Christian] Notpossible, what about 170? – Sorry.- No can do, alright thank you. – [Taxi Driver] Hey boss, hey. – [Christian] Yeah? – [Taxi Driver] Three. – [Christian] 300, can you do 170? – 170, impossible boss. – [Christian] Not possible, that’s okay. – Excuse me 250 okay, let’s go. – [Christian] 250, nothat’s still too much. – No too much, around $20, boss. – That’s a lot! I was driven for 170,000just three days ago. – Yeah, I know, I know. – But you can’t do that? – Follow me. – I know you. – Do you? – Tom Cruise, do you remember? – [Christian] He’s my taxidriver, it’s Tom Cruise. What’s up man? – Yes, welcome to Bali. – He actually drove me lasttime and he has a subwoofer in the back of his car, Iwould pay extra for him. But if you’re on a budget,like we are in today’s video, you’re gonna wanna walkstraight outside of the airport, you’re basically notgonna be able to miss it, right out here, you’re gonnacome outside the parking, you’re gonna get to theend of this crosswalk and turn left. Hello. – [Women] Hello! – Can you do meter?- Yeah. – You do meter?- Yeah. – And literally already wehave found a Blue Bird Taxi that has offered us meter rates at the end of it turn rightto the final crosswalk just like this one here, walk downthis area, were almost there. This is the unregulatedarea where GO-JEKs can come and basically GO-JEK is just like Uber, it’s a very affordable way to get around, you can spend even less money if you’re willing totake a motor bike taxi, but you’ll need to have just like one bag like I’ve got right now. They’ll be wearing this beautiful, beautiful green jacket.- My name is Anto. – Anto?- Anto. – Once you leave the airportterminal, you no longer have that free WiFi access, and sounless you bought a SIM card in the airport, you’rewithout any internet here, which by the way, theSIM cards in the airport are extremely overpriced,do not buy it there. My number one recommendationis just go chat with those GO-JEK drivers, the guyswearing the green jackets, the taxi drivers, andnegotiate your own price. (upbeat music) (cash register dinging) Alright guys, so I’ve just arrived here at the front of thehostel, and I booked it on Hostelworld, not sponsored,but they’re one of the ways that you can find hostelsall over the world. So, I found one that had the lowest price, but yet still offered higherratings, I think this place had like a 9.2, greatstaff, great cleanliness. It came in at 120,000 Indonesian rupiah, which is like which islike nine US dollars. Let’s go check it out. Hello, how’s it going? Okay, so I’ve just checked into the room. If you need me you canknock on bunk number three. Climb all the way to the top with me. It’s an ACed room, so I’m happy. This is my living quarters. That right there is one of my lock boxes, so I can put any valuables in there. And something that I used to do a lot because I traveled with myfilm equipment and it was like my most valuable asset, wasI slept basically next to it. I like cradled it in my sleep. Hostels are so safe, butit can happen anywhere, so I like to keep my mostprecious possessions close to me. Already I’ve met threepeople and we’re probably leaving here to go thebeach in about 10 minutes. This is what the bathroom looks like. Got a couple of hammockshere for reclining, and we’re now heading down to Echo Beach. The reason I choosethis hostel was actually because of the high rating, but also because it’s probably no more than a five minute walkaway from the beach. So, this is probably onethe best budget restaurants that you’ll find, like thebest value in all of Bali. So, 60,000, I got a chickenbreast, a corn on the cob for an extra 20,000, a beerI got myself the Bintang. And by the way, thisis the must-have drink when you first arrive here in Bali. You can help yourself to thepotatoes, the corn, the salad. It’s such good value, probably one of the best in all of Bali. So, just before I checked into my hostel, I actually was stoppedon the side of the road by these guys right herefrom the Netherlands, – Hey what’s up, man.- Ativa, and Isla. (upbeat music) – Cheers. – Nice meeting you.- Alright, man. – We just finished an hour long dinner, probably even a bit longer, just chatting, because we had so much in common. Honestly, that’s the crazything when you travel, you quickly meet people that just have the same passions, same ideas. My friend, you have Bintang! – Yeah you know. – [Christian] This guy’sthe man for Bintang. How much for the big one? – 35. – [Christian] 35, that’s a deal. – Thank you. – [Christian] Thankyou very much for that. Oh you wanna take, okay here we go, there we go, okay, three, two, one cheese! Oh it’s beautiful, and howdo I find you on Instagram? – What do you of this? – [Christian] Do you have Instagram? – Oh no no. – [Christian] Oh man, you’re missing out. – Instagram, I have Instagram. – [Christian] Oh you have? – Yeah I have, Instagram? – [Christian] Yeah. – Yeah I have.- What is it? – Rezaafzaikan. – Just got back to theroom, and by the looks of it I’m the only one here, so no complaints, I’ll be the first one to go to sleep. And then from there, I’llprobably be woken up, one, two, three, four, five times before I finally get to bed. To bed number three I go,and I’ll see you tomorrow. So, I’ve just arrived here at a restaurant that I wanna show you guysbecause it consistently serves really affordable food, and it’s good. These are a couple friends of mine from the hostel, morning guys! – What’s up? – [Christian] How wasyour night at the hostel? – Hostel life, yeah! – [Christian] Good morning! – Morning!- Hello. I gave the cashier 100,000, she gave me back 31 so, this whole mealhere is around five US dollars. – Hey can I borrow 31K? – [Christian] No I’m trying to make a $100 last man, you can’t just. (giggling) I’ll be honest, it’s not likethe world’s best breakfast, but it’s a good one, and it’s cheap. (laughing) So I just organized withone of the locals here to have a scooter dropped off. This here is my ride overthe next two more days. It’s gonna be costing me 60,000 a day. I know you can get them as low as 50,000. But in this case to have the convenience of it being dropped off,if you want it for a week you can get it around 250,for a full month you’re looking at roughly 700 to 750. Hello, good morning! – Bagus! – Bagus! Bagus, by the way you needto know this if you’re coming to Bali, it’s like good vibes. If you just had the bestnasi goreng, and it only cost you a dollar, that’s bagus. If you’re surfing and you just hit the perfect wave, it’s bagus. When you rent a scooter, andit comes with a bit of gas, an extra bar, that’s bagus. There’s a few things weneed for a great road trip, and the first thing is a scooter. The next thing, you’regonna need is some friends, And the most important thing,we’re gonna need a Latina. (rhythmic music) So, we now have a one anda half hour scooter ride to get us to the center of Bali. Were going to a place bythe name of Leke Leke. (motor bike revving) So a slight unforeseen,expense for today’s travels, but this is what happens whenyou travel, you can’t predict every cost, the scooter, well let me show you. (scooter revving) It doesn’t go anywhere anymore. Update, we have just calledGO-JEKs to take us all the way. – Two minutes away! – We got motor bike GO-JEK’scoming, so they’re here to save the day, but the amazingthing it the local people have been so helpful, especially this gentleman here, heoffered us his own bike. Literally like, just people offering a bike to strangers, it’s crazy. When they ask you what you wanna do in five years from now, this is it. This is my dream job,just look at them all. There’s so many of them. See this is the treat that we wouldn’t have gotten if our scooter hadn’t broken down, so always take the positive. Thank you very much,kindest people around. Oh my gosh he’s taken likehalf an hour out of his day just to make sure we were all set up and our day trip continues. It’s now two p.m. so we gotta hurry up if we’re gonna see LekeLeke, and then finish it off with the beautiful UNESCOsite known as Jatiluwih. My homie. We’re following GPS to gethere, and there’s like one path. This is the path. (upbeat music) Bye bye! (rain dripping) Here goes 20,000, thank you very much. – Thank you very much. (speaking foreign language) – It wouldn’t be a trip to thenorth without a bit of rain. It’s a day of unexpected charges. Fried chicken and rice, 45,000. Fresh young coconut, 30,000. The view, priceless, just kidding it was 30,000 to get in here. But it was worth everydollar in total like $10 to get all of this, this incredibleview that gives us access to the waterfall, and myfriends don’t wanna be near me. – You left us! – Okay guys, this is thething that we’ve traveled hours to come see, we’verisked out lives, our limbs, just to experience thisone moment, right here. Let’s do it. Pretty cool. (groaning) Oh my, oh my, Cathy go try it out. This thing is definitely falling apart. Follow me, it’s this way,follow me, it’s this way. (leaves rustling) (upbeat music) I don’t know if were gonnamake it to Jatiluwih. We might have to find a replacement, but we’re running back to our bikes, our GO-JEK’s are hopefullywaiting up there. So tonight’s sunset was a fail,it was a complete gray out, There was no color, not much to see, but we did get a coupleshots over the rice terraces. With that being said though,like I’ve had so many incredible day trips in thesouth of Bali, in the north, even some of the more hidden spots that one of my best friends, Pancha here in Bali has taken me to. If you guys wanna learnabout all those hidden gems and more, the best restaurants,I have a full video guide to Bali, and there’s a freevideo to it just linked down below to check it out and Pancha, the best tour guide inBali, I’ll also have him linked down below, like he’sthe best way to see Bali. Now, we’re gonna enjoy somedinner, and tomorrow I’m excited because we’ll be showingyou the other side of Bali, we’ll be going down south. So we’re her at SavageKitchen, and I’m super excited because I love their chickenburger, it’s so good, and tonight is buy onecocktail, get one free. Cheers guys! – Cheers to an epic day! (cash register ringing) – It is day number three let’s go! (water swooshing) ♪ We’re not thinking ♪ ♪ About the way I use to ♪ Good morning my dudes. It is the start of a brand new day and another day to save some money. So, I wanna show you whatwere starting out day with, because for a very, very modest 85,000, we have gotten ourselves,eggs benedict, a cappuccino, at one of the restaurantsI give a big thumbs up to. I’ve eaten here a fewtimes, and I really like it. It’s called Coffee n Oven. I’m also joined by acouple of locals here. What’s up fellow traveler friends? – Hi, that was super awkward. – Alright guys, this right here is a travel hack to eat for free. If you smell the fumes that are coming off these bags right here, thatis the smell of free food. Come on over. Where we going? – Uluwatu.- Alright. – Is that where we’re going?- I don’t know. ♪ We’re not thinking ’bout ♪ ♪ The things I took from me ♪ ♪ I know that I am ♪ ♪ So much ♪ ♪ Better ♪ Alright guys we’ve madeit down to Uluwatu. Were right outside of aplace called Single Fins. Getting here, it was pretty much free, aside from a bit of gas. We probably spent at most 20,000 in gas. To get in here was 5,000. So as far as Bali’smainland, I have to say Uluwatu’s probably the most beautiful, because it has thosedramatic drop-off cliff side, onto incredible waves,they have internationally renowned surf competitionshere all the time. Uluwatu, is a little bit expensive, especially in this areahere, it’s quite touristy. What we’ve done, is we’vecome down some of the stairs, and we found ourselves a local warung. Three, two, one. – On Christian! – Let’s save money. 32,000 Indonesian rupiah, roughly two and a half dollars US. So, Cam’s a big surferand this is apparently one of the gnarliestpaddle outs you can do. Essentially, during high tide,the water will be as high as like well above my head right now. So you have to startsurfing from there and wait for the lifeguard to giveyou a whistle that you’re slightly safe to make yourway out, and you have to get through this cave while thewaves are crashing in here. Bagus. Show us your newest tattoo. (whistling) What did you pay for that? – 20 bucks, 25 bucks. (cheering) – [Christian] Yo what’s up dude? (monkey rustling) Okay, okay, okay, we found a local, hi. Picture! (chuckling) What’s his name? – Leo. – Leo!- Leo. – Check this out, this is unbelievable. – And do you know how muchthis cost us, it’s free. (inspirational music) So we have no idea what thistower is, but it’s pretty cool and the best thing, it’s free! At least we got here before they charge for the haunted tower. King of the castle, up to the top we go. Oh my gosh, look how tightit is to get through here. We made it! This is incredible. (upbeat music) About 15 minutes left of sunlight. It’s a beautiful sunset tonight. Now it’s not a completesecret because there are a few people here, but this is one of the quieter spots in Bali. (rhythmic music) – [Woman] I’m not a part of the band! (audience cheering) – Fast forward a couple ofdays, and welcome to Hong Kong. Now that’s a video for another day.
