Local transportation in Bali centres around the Bemo, or a min-van. Most operate on color-coded routes throughout the island, but there are no guarantees as to the pace of your trip. It all depends on the number of passengers at the terminals and of travellers waiting along the route.

You'll also find public buses, taxis, shuttle vans, and motorbikes for hire. Driving by yourself is possible with an International Driver's Licence, but beware of the narrow winding roads in the hinterland. Many road hazards are marked only with branches, pedestrians may cross your path anytime if they think they'll get to the other side on time, and vehicles going around blind turns may take the middle of the road. Make good use of your headlights and honk your horn when approaching bends in the road.
