[quote=“Europa”]The Rough Guide 2002 edition says the peak time in Bali is from mid-June, and that prices go through the roof over this period. After the Bali bombing, is this still the case? I thought business may have slowed even to now.
Also, could anyone give me an idea of room prices with fan, both in cities and in smaller places near interesting things to see and do?[/quote]
In my recent experience on Bali, everything is negotiable. In Kuta, you should be able to get an air-con room for 20,000 Rupia. It is the rainy season now, so the waters are a little muddier. On the plus side, you will be treated to the most spectacular lightning storms each and every night.
The Bali bombing has severely affected business. We dealt with lots of very knowledgable local guides and they confirmed this fact.
Make sure to visit Ubud. And, if you can, Menjangan Island (NW corner).
