10 tips / things to do if you are staying in Kuta (Bali-Indonesia):

Tip 1: Things to do in Bali - Activity Guide Kuta – Go shopping in Kuta.
Kuta is a shopping paradise that offers so many opportunities, from small family businesses with low costs at Kuta Market to High End Shopping at the luxurious Beachwalk Shopping Mall or Discovery Kartika Plaza Shopping Mall. Obviously, the products you will get on the street are fakes and bargaining is a part of the game. In shopping malls you should probably ask for a license if you are not sure about the quality of the product.

Tip 2: Things to do in Bali - Activity Guide Kuta – Enjoy the sunset at Jalan Pantai Kuta, the Kuta Beahc Road
Jalan Pantai Kuta, the sunset strip of Kuta, offers plenty of nice locations to enjoy the sunset. Go to Beachwalk or The Stones (3rd floor) and enjoy sunset cocktails. Cocktails make you hungry! After the cocktails enjoy one of the dozens of restaurants on Jalan Pantai Kuta!

Tip 3: Things to do in Bali - Activity Guide Kuta – Learn in Kuta how to surf from a local.
If you take this tip seriously, don’t choose a big surfing school. Support the local businesses and you can find plenty of them at Kuta Beach. The price is cheaper, the service is probably better, the training is more personal and you can support local businesses in the process.
Disadvantage and Warning: Unfortunately there probably won’t be any locker facilities available with the small businesses. Make sure you don’t bring any credit cards to the beach, and only carry the money you want to spend!!!

Tip 4: Things to do in Bali - Activity Guide Kuta – Play Pool or go Bowling in Kuta
At the opposite end of the Discovery Kartika Plaza you can find Paradiso Bowling. It has about 15 bowling alleys and some pool tables. It is the perfect thing to do in the event of bad weather conditions. Also it is a nice family activity and very family friendly.

Tip 5: Things to do in Bali -  Activity Guide Kuta – Kuta Theatre
See the magic Show at Kuta Theatre

Tip 6: Things to do in Bali - Activity Guide Kuta – Bali Shell Museum Kuta.
Bali Shell Museum is a must see place for shell lovers and has simply a very nice shell collection. In case you would like to buy some products, Caspla Sea Shell is highly recommended.

Tip 7: Things to do in Bali - Activity Guide Kuta – Horse-Drawn Carriages.
Taxis you can find and use everywhere in Kuta but what do you think about a Tour through Kuta in a horse-drawn carriage? It is obviously not as romantic as it would be in a traffic limited area, but it is something special and unique which you probably you can’t find at home.

Tip 8: Things to do in Bali - Activity Guide Kuta – Release a Sea Turtle at Kuta Beach.
This family friendly activity is highly recommended as it helps to protect the sea turtles. To be a part of the project, please contact:

Tip 9: What to take care of in Bali - Things you should be aware of in Kuta – Kuta Money Changers – make sure you get the full amount.
Money changing is partially a dirty business. Make sure, even when you think you have received the correct amount, you actually have the right money in your pocket. Recount the money twice. Put it directly in your pocket after you have agreed! Don’t forget to ask for the changing fee first.

Tip 10: What to take care of in Bali - Things you should be aware of in Kuta – Legian Street (Jalan Legian).
As with everywhere else in the world, party places contain some level of crime. This is especially the case for Legian street, in particular on Jalan Legian you should follow these hints:
1. Don’t have too much money on you when you go out on Legian Street.
2. Don’t bring any credit cards if you plan to jump into the Nightlife scene.
3. Keep Bags close to your body.
4. Don’t put your wallet in the back pocket of your trousers.
5. Don’t get too drunk and lose control!!!
6. Don’t buy any drugs! Magic Mushrooms are not illegal but should be steered clear of.
7. Be aware of local gigolos. Their charm is lovely and their pilfering skills are too!

We have to face the fact that Jalan Legian is a place for crime. Jalan Legian does NOT represent Bali and its people. Nearly all of the crime is caused by Indonesians, living illegally in Bali.
