my 5 days 4 nights Bali Itinerary 

No. 1

Warung Babi Guling Bu Ngurah Mambal (Mambal Market)
Located by the Mambal traditional market. if you want your breakfast for Babi Guling, this rated top at the moment as the owner uses wood fire to cook it, hence the flavor will be unique. A small warung in the market area. Be prepare to queue and with the locals. Average finish about 10.30am. (this is the place where i miss it)

Location: search for Mambal Market in google map

Open daily from 5am to 11am

No.3

Warung Nasi Babi Guling iBu Moris
Read over an article as this attracted me that this Balinese warung made it onto the Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list of 2017 from Eelke Plasmeijer, owner of Locavore list that their flavour is still very much localise. Pungent in taste and spices.

Location:
Jalan Bunutan Kedewatan, right across from Kupu-Kupu Barong Villas and Tree Spa resort. UBUD
Operating Hours: Daily 9am to 6pm.

No.4:

Babi Guling Candra

If you are in Denpasar, this place is recommended by many. Decent pricing at 40,000 rupiah per portion and crispy pork skin.

Second choice in the area is at Sanur Denpasar area, that operate a run down area but serve classic food. Have not tried but many recommending this place. Be early to enjoy the first batch of pippin hot suckling pig. As if it hit much later in the noon, it is not that fresh anymore. Recommending to go before 2pm.

Warung Tegas

One of the alternative if you do not prefer Ibu Oka as they are just about 500meters away from Ibu Oka. A place which is well known among locals that buy off to share with families,colleagues and friends. Locals here buy it in stacks as you can see stacks of babi guling stack ontop of each other.

Decided to make a simple comparison for this 2 famous pork ribs brand in Bali. Hog Wild vs Naughty Nuri

For the past 2 rounds when I was at Bali, I only head to Hog Wild for bbq pork ribs as knowing its authenticity. However for my recent trip decided to give Naughty Nuri a try since many of my friends highly recommended it and also we have a few branches in Malaysia.

My simple comparison comes out to as below:
1) Hog Wild Seminyak

Bali (13)

The ambiance still as it is when I was here 5 years ago.
Taste is still classic sticky ribs which is well marinated, meat is soft, tender and juicy. Sauce is fragrant and slightly salty to my liking. Portion is slightly smaller but comes with 1 side dish.

Bali (14)

Location:
Hog Wild by Chef Bruno
Jalan Batu Belig No.41,
Kerobokan Kelod, Kuta Utara, Kabupaten Badung, Bali 80361, Indonesia

Operating hours : 11am – 10.30pm

tel: +62 361 8476722

2) Naughty Nuri Seminyak
Find that the taste of meat is quite porky. Sauce is slightly sweeter which I do not really prefer. Meat is not as soft and fragrant as to compare with Hog wild. Portion is definitely bigger, but no sides.

Bali (23)

Bali (24)

My verdict is Hog wild win. Personally, I felt that Naughty Nuri in Malaysia (Hartamas Outlet) is much better.

Location:
Naughty Nuri Seminyak
Jalan Mertanadi No.62, Kerobokan Kelod,
Kuta Utara, Kuta Utara, Bandung, Bali 80, Indonesia

Operating Hours: Daily – 11am – 10pm

Tel: +62 361 8476783

Others:

A new brand which I saw is Wahaha Pork Ribs. I think worth to give it a try or maybe some of you can let me know how’s the feedback. They have 3 outlets in total with one in Seminyak too.

This will be my fourth time to Bali that makes it the first travel blog after all these while. Well, for instagrammer this is certainly an ideal island for you to shot alot of amazing shots and moments. Here is my first trip of the year and latest findings of how I spend my 5 Days 4 Night at Bali 2018. I will create another blog post for my past 3 trips which makes it a compilation of backlog.

Airlines to Bali: Took AirAsia over for flight at 12.20pm that reach Bali 3.30pm : RM 450 per pax (cheapest I found was RM 329 including20kg lugguage) which I could not make it.

There are 2 tip to share with you upon arriving at Bali Airport.
Tip no 1. (for Malaysians Only)
Change your currency at Bali Airport or only at license money changer at Bali island – those with big shop frontage (I nearly got cheated once before few years back as I change RM 1000 and the guy calculated in front of you then put in envelope and reach back hotel half was gone. Went back and screw the money changer guy and he gave me back remaining balance with agent fee. )

Here is the exchange rate base on 25th FEB 2018.
Mid Valley – RM 1 = 3500 rupiah  (hence changes in Malaysia is better)
Bali Airport : RM 1 = 3300 rupiah

Tip no. 2:
Need not worry on transportation as : UBER, GRAB and GO JEK is available in both android and IOS. Just download that for convenient and also reliable rate. There are oth

With development of ride hailing app, most of the driver could not pick you right in front of the airport as those driver are consider illegal.

If you are taking UBER, GRAB or GO Jet, here are the guide for the pick up location:
1. Head to domestic airport which is just 3 minutes walk from the international airport entrance.
2. Borrow FREE Data from Aiport to order your ride, text your driver and tell them what you wear and meet them at Alphamart.
3. Upon walking out the exit after the duty free, turn left at the exit and walk directly across which you will come by a car rental pick up spot, thru a nice Balinese gate, then cross a small road and just walk another 30 steps you will see Alfa mart. There is where most of the ride hailing pick up area.

4. If you feel uncomfortable or do not want either above, you can opt for private arrangement services for airport pick up

Or map as below for your reference.

If you do plan to take taxi to your hotel or town, do only take BLUEBIRD taxi as they are more safe and reliable, even in any part of Indonesia. Other taxi brand is at your own risk. If you decided to take any driver right at the entrance of the airport, most of the driver will ask for 150,000 rupiah to Seminyak and 100,000 to Kuta which is very expensive. The rate to bargain if you are taking taxi for are as below:
1) Seminyak 80,000 – 100,000 still reasonable
2) Kuta 50,000 – 80,000 still reasonable.

Ride hailing :
GRAB : Airport to my hotel The Aswana, Seminyak 58,000 rupiah. That is nearly 50% savings from what the airport taxi guys are asking for.

** do note that if you are ordering ride hailing, do not say that you have hail GRAB, UBER or GO JEK. Just say that your friend is picking you up.

To move around Bali, there are 2 options.
Option 1. If you are in group of 4 pax and above, then you got no choice but to go with a driver. a driver and car rental comes about 400,000 rupiah (rate which is 3 years ago and if I remember correctly – a car sort of Avanza.) and petrol to be top up upon returning which is an 8 hours rental. To include meal for your driver is at your own generosity which we did buy both meals for my driver which he was highly recommended by my Jakarta friend. Indeed awesome guy.

Option 2: rent a bike and move around which is more convenient if you are in smaller group. Rental is about 60,000 -90,000 depending which area you are in. Kuta the most expensive at 90,000 which you can bargain to 80,000. Averagely is around 70,000 rupiah per day. (or to pre-arrange for quite reasonable price)

Day 1

Arrive at the airport and head to our hotel to check in. Accommodation in Bali for first 2 nights to stay cheap. The Aswana at Seminyak was chosen because of its strategic location and highlight no.1 was also the budget pricing. Upon my booking 2 weeks before the trip, the room was only @ rm 95 per night. Certainly no complain on this, as the room is big enough and service for such budget accommodation is top notch.

Bali (21)

I miss out my sunset because of luggage got stuck.

Day 4

Laid back
chill:
final night accommodation in Bali change to 5 star Bali Hotel to The Stones Hotel – Legian Bali, Autograph Collection
Reasonably price and if you do have the budget, worth to stay as it comes with private bath tub at the balcony and love their swimming pool. Just 10 minutes walk to Kuta main area. Kuta beach is just right at door step which is 3 minutes walk.

3pm: Heading downsouth to Uluwatu Temple  (I was indecisive to do either sunset watching or to do the famous Cultural Kecak Fire Dance performance)

Bali (33)

5.30pm : Laid back at famous Rock Bar at Uluwatu to enjoy sunset drinks

8pm: Head over to Jimbaran for seafood dinner
there are alot of stalls here and the most famous is Manega Cafe, which my friend say is overrated and the rest of the stalls taste nearly the same. So randomly pick this cafe (New Bayang Cafe) and turns out to be good. Love their seasoning and less pack.

10.30pm :
Party at Motel Mexicola which is also a famous Instagram venue. If you are born in the 80’s and listening to your ABBA, Moffats, Micheal Jackson, Black Eye Peas, this place played the right note for you. Give me a good remembrance of my party times back my teenage days.

Day 5:

chill at hotel area
Lunch at famous Babi Guling Pak Malen beats Ibu Oka which is way overrated and I did not finish my meal last round.
