On the plane the immigration card will ask your address (do not use for postal) – 8B x Jalan Batu Bolong, Canggu
When you arrive in Bali - it's hot and humid - make sure you have layers of clothes so you can get off the plane with summer clothes on.
Follow the crowd - if you have your visa already - go to right and straight to immigration. If you don't have visa - then go to visa section and pay cash $25us for a month visa. They will give you change in rupiah if you have another currency.
Then luggage – IF you get a porter to assist you and you will go through X-ray and human and then porter will dump you near moneychangers booths (don't change money there). Give him (maybe 2 men) two $2 coins. That is enough in Bali and they will ask for more money and can be quite assertive - but you say "No more" and keep walking with your trolley!! As you come out into open-air turn to the LEFT.
If all else fails here are some phone numbers to call. Ask anyone to use their phone and give them $1.
0818 05470275 Komang / (phone number hidden) Komang
It is around 15km from airport but it might take 1-2 hours depending on traffic.
MONEY – Exchange rate in your country is usually not good – better to exchange in Bali. Travellers cheques no good in Bali. Bring cash and/or debit card (for cash withdrawal) and/or a credit card (limited places take it). Ask driver that he stop at a honest money exchange on the way to Canggu.
Money exchange can drive you nuts but at the moment the dollar is easy for the rupiah -- just take off 4 0's and its nearly right!
So 5,000 rupiah is 50cents; 100,000rp is $10;
So when someone asks you for a million rupiah - don't freak - It's $100 !
To put money in perspective -- most worker Balinese (like staff at Accommodation or the folks working on the building sites) earn about $5 a day. So when you give a tip to a waitress/staff person of 10,000rp ($1) he/she is happy. $2 (20,000rp) and he/she is very happy!
A car and driver is $45-$60 a day (8 hours) depending on where you go. $2-5 tip per trip is good.
Taxi from villa to Seminyak for food or clothes shopping - not cheap but good quality (cheap and not good quality is Legian and Kuta) is around $7-10 a trip.
Actually if going for a serious shop get a driver/taxi to take you so he can pick you up and drop off etc - even if short distance gets hot and tiring
Internet in Bali - make sure your computer/phone has wireless and then you can go to cafes and restaurants – Internet speed in Bali is slow... otherwise buy a local SIM in Bali and put in phone.
You can walk around Canggu but better do it early morning or evening for cool and traffic.
If you are interested in cooking - walk up to small market (Canggu Pasar)- about 300 m from rooms at about 6-630am or earlier. If really interested in markets - hire Pak Komang to take you to Budung Market in Denpasar - early (4 or 5. - over by 6am -- and yes as a westerner they will charge you more than local but hey it is still Very cheap...likely to be the only westerner there...
Just to warn you - Bali is NOT like any other country. It has huge garbage problems, huge traffic problems and is hot! On the other hand is it is visually magnificent and the people are deeply spiritual (Hindu) and very sweet. Tourism is doing good and damage to Bali...
Please be very careful swimming in the sea. However if you are want to have a swim and lie around -- go to HOTEL TUGU (at the end of our road) where you are welcome to use their pool and change rooms as long as you have a drink (water, coffee or stronger). It’s a magnificent hotel and has a museum. Also there is a public large swimming pool just 200m up the road - Segara Madu

thanks for a great time in canggu shirley!:) it's a very nice clean home stay with lots of friendly people around!
Shirley is very informative and helpful througout our stay. The girls in the spa has helped us alot wherever and whenever we need their assistance. We met alot of good friends there.
I loved Canggu Stay! it was very clean, the rooms are cleaned everyday and you get fresh towles. also the ladies from the spa are lovely, they help you wherever they can, if you have questions to changgu, need to organize a ride or treat you with an excellent massage. shirley was very attentive, she replied to my emails very fast and always made sure everything was ok! would definately reccomend it! thanks for everything!
My experience with Canggu Dorm was positive. The place is clean and the stuff is very friendly. The driver, Komang, is great, he was of a great help and reliability while in Canggu and gave priceless recommendations for the further journey.
A bit of surprise: instead of rice fields there is a construction site in front of the rooms. I hope something nice is built there.
Thank you for the stay!

About the Host, Shirley
I love Bali. Love to travel and thoroughly enjoy the abundance of Bali - the delightful people, food, plants, sunshine...Come and enjoy this wonderful island and stay.
"my story - I'm 60....I've been travelling overseas since I was 19... actually we travelled as a family since I was 6 years old. Kruger National Park each year, Mozambique each year around July, and then the sea - like Plettenberg Bay in summer time. Us "kids" all have it in our blood... I love the intertwinings, stories, colours and happy heart I get when travelling. Travelled to more than 30 plus countries and lived in 6 countries. And recently calculated 12 homes in last 12 years :) So at heart - a nomad.
Share my time between Victoria Australia and Bali :)
Travelled to Bali in 1975, and 1979 and now happily call it home. I really like and appreciate AirBNB - as a host and traveller (thanks guys!) - so easy and pleasant :)"
