My husband and I will be spending 3 nights in Bali during off season (October,2014), as a side trip from Hong Kong. We arrived at 6:30 pm on our 1st day, and our flight departs at noon on our last day. I'm debating if we should stay 1) 1 night in Kuta and 2 nights in Nusa Dua or 2) 1 night in Kuta. 2 nights in Ubud or 3) stay 3 nights in one place, but which would be a good base? We are not beach people and would like to experience the culture, go to a Balinese dance show and try local foods.
Based on our very short time, and consideration for traffic what do you think is best or better plan? We do intend to hire a private car & driver. Could you also please include in your reply approx. travel time from airport, and between KUTA-NUSA DUA-UBUD. BTW, I like to plan in advance to have more choices and find better price.
Thank you so much in advance.
