Planning a two week trip for May 2011. Doing 3 nights Honk Kong and 10 days in either Thailand or Bali. Been to Thailand twice before and absoulutely love it but thought maybe a change with first visit to Bali this time around. Settled on Sanur as an area but our latest research has rather dampened our enthusiasm. We keep coming across various pub names in the area eg Borneo Pub, Trophy Pub, Cat & Fiddle Pub. Don't get me wrong, my wife and I like a drink but we don't want to travel half way around the globe to be met with an array of European/Oz styled places run by ex-pats. I would emphasize that no disrespect is intended with this post but we just can't get our heads around what we might expect. We are not enamoured by places such as Tenerife - is Bali, Australia's answer to Tenerife or are Balinese 'pubs' not as we know them at home in the UK? Maybe we are just looking at the wrong area? We are after nice hotels, weather and beaches with restaurants/bars where local people serve local food/drink. Any advice would be much appreciated.
