Quite a few people ask this question, from feedback I've heard for someone not wanting to watch their dollars $100 aussie dollars a day seems to be the suggestion. Guess everyone us different with their spending / eating / drinking habits & it can vary.

You can easily get by on under $50.00 a day unless you plan on lots of eating, drinking, shopping. In your case I would budget for 100-200 per day.It is better to bring money home than not have enough.

Drinks range from $2.00 for a beer to $10.00 for a cocktail.

Food can be as low as $2.00 for a simple Indonesian dish to $200.00 for top class. Mid range meals will cost around $10-25.00 including a couple of drinks.

Your breakfast will be included and you may not want a big lunch every day.

To hard to say as all people spend differently. Shopping and eating can be inexpensive, however the nightclubs can cost a bit, especially if you like spirits or cocktails. I agree with the previous suggestion, I have seen on numerous threads $100AUD a day is ok.

You will not be going to any bars on March 23rd. This is the day that you will have to stay in the hotel.

LOL I was just coming to say just that, cempaka. The 23rd will be a very cheap day.

Mick, did you realise that you will be there for Nyepi Day? If not, you had better do some reading about this day.

transport , food, clubbing (depending on club). the last one can vary a lot. allow $150AUD per day. cash 1/2 your notes at bank in bali. see how you go from there. if you need more use the atm.

dont forget departure tax 150 000 rupiah.
