We arrived in Bali quite late on the Monday night and after paying the tax to enter Indonesia we decided to head to Kuta rather than staying in Denpasar. We jumped in a taxi which we were sharing with a girl who was travelling to the same area which made it cheaper for us.

Our evening finished off with a wonderful dinner in downtown Kuta at the Kori Restaurant and Bar. The food, setting, and lighting was just was the perfect way to end our time in Bali.
Back to Thailand and on to Krabi!
