How long does it take to get from Ubud to Amen


I am finalizing my trip and wanted to get an idea how long it takes to get from one city to another.

How long from Ubud to Amed?

How long from Amen to Nusa Dua?

How long from Nusa Dua to Jimbaran?

Any estimates would be helpful. I assume we'll likely be traveling via a taxi/cab.

Hi there

Bali doesnt really have cities. It is all quite small,

Denpasar, the capital, is really the only place you may say is a city.

Ubud to Amed is a 2.5 hr drive

Amed to Nusa Dua is 3 hours

Nusa Dua to Jimbaran is 30 to 40 mins.

Cabs are generally small sedan cars. It is better to hire a driver, who will have a larger/higher vehicle for the longer jouneys. You will get a much better view of the countryside. Private drivers are usually more educated about the culture. If you choose a driver from the T/A list, they will also have some english.

There is only one city and it is Denpasar, the rest are more like villages.

Kabirgirl was pretty accurate with the driving times, in my experience that is how much time it takes me when I'm driving.

On that subject, if you want to experience Bali and enjoy the view while driving around, do take a driver. Driving in Bali requires 150% focus.

I do kind of enjoy it though.

A driver will not get lost, you will certainly as there aret almost no road signs.
