Taxi from Ubud

Hello, all.

I've found some posts regarding this issue around the web but there are not many fairly recent posts on the topic. I’d like to spend a day in Kuta but we are staying in Ubud. Is a day trip reasonable? Am I better off hiring a taxi for the ride there and the ride back or should I hire one for the day? I don’t believe I will necessarily need one around Kuta as we intend to walk a lot .

Thanks

I've never used it so I have no idea where the pick-up and drop-off points are, but there is a shuttle bus between the two.

Perhaps you could get the shuttle there and find a driver in Kuta to bring you back if you have lots of shopping or finish late? Presumably you'll want to stay and watch the sunset on the beach?

The Perama shuttle has an office in Pengosekan where the busses leave, but by prior arrangement and a small fee they do pick ups from a few feeder spots around Ubud. Then when you get to the drop off you can just take taxis for short hops around Kuta. Its a good service and no special comforts but economical and safe.

It is entirely feasible to go to Kuta for a day trip from Ubud. If you are intending to do a lot of shopping I would consider hiring a car and driver for the day, this way you can load the car up with bags of goodies as you go.

The driver will be happy to wait for you as he won't be using any fuel and you will have a quick escape route back to Ubud when it all becomes too much for you!

We did this around 2 weeks ago and paid $60 for the day. Its around 1.5 hours each way with traffic. I assume a metered taxi would be cheaper but its nice to have a driver as they wait for you while you shop/have lunch etc. They can also stop off at different places if you wanted to
