Ubud 1st or Kuta 1st

Hie everyone,

Would need some advise here. Going to Bali for my honeymoon this coming september (5days4nites)

Wish to stay 2nites at Kuta and 2nites at Ubud. Kuta first or Ubud first ? as I am not sure to go where first

Have chosen Taman Harum for my 2nites at Ubud and J Boutique for Kuta. Is both hotels ok ?

Need to know the taxi fare to Ubud from the airport? and from Ubud to Kuta?

Advise is very much appreciated.

Tks in advance

well I would not want to leave Bali coming from Ubud to airport....so i would go to ubud first.

Also you will probably shop alot more in Kuta so you wouldn't have to lug it around ubud with you.

So ubud first in my opinion :)

Purely personal opinion, but same as PLtt, I'd do Ubud first so you don't have that long trek back to the airport.

kuta first as there are shops and it is an urban beach area. so the area is a less tranquil than ubud, beach

then ubud which is more relaxing and tranquil. ricefields.

only an hour to the airport from ubud.

taxi airport to kuta about 60 000 rups. about 150 000 to 200 000 kuta to ubud.

I always finish off staying in ubud. It is more relaxing so we get the shopping out of the way first in Kuta/Legian and then head up to Ubud. No problems leaving from ubud you just have to allow an extra hour and a half to get to the airport. Drivers galore in Ubud so easy enough to arrange one the day before.

I'd also vote for Ubud first....go there and relax after the wedding and then head to Kuta. And I second the lugging the things around and the travelling back to the airport. I tend to head for Ubud first.

What time is your flight from Bali? Maybe that might influence your decision as well?
