No trip to Bali is complete without a taste of the local lager, Bintang, which costs $1-4 depending on where you are, as local restaurants are generally a lot cheaper than bars in the main tourist hubs. Imported beers are a little more expensive and nightclubs tend to be more expensive than bars or restaurants.
You can find a good range of local and Western restaurants in Bali, from cheap eats in Kuta that set you back ca. $2-5 per meal to seafront dining in Seminyak where you can expect to pay $5-10 per meal. The general rule is, the less touristy the restaurant, the cheaper (and often better) the meal.
Taxis are an inexpensive mode of transport and cost ca. $0.80 per mile. Want a private tour in Bali? From ca. $50 you can hire a private driver for the day.
