Going to Bali? No clue where to stay yet? Picking a location can be hard and the areas are quite different from each other. But let us make life easier for you. Here is our ultimate guide of the most popular areas where you as an exchange student can stay during your time in paradise.

Main South

The long black sand beach strip from the south along the west coast from the airport up to Tanah Lot is one of the most popular places to stay on the island. The area is known for great parties, good surf, and amazing sunsets.

Kuta

During these last years, Kuta has gotten a bad reputation as being the party central of the island. This area is full of bars, nightclubs, and small shops. There are plenty of accommodation options here, such as homestays and smaller hotels, for good prices. In Kuta, you can also find bigger shopping malls such as Beachwalk and Discovery mall.

Seminyak

One of the most popular areas to stay at for students. Seminyak is the home of the most fashionable boutiques, fine restaurants, and luxurious villas. The prices are a bit higher in this area than others because of its good location. The surfing is great for beginners and you have plenty of bars and clubs to choose from if you like to go out during the night. In Seminyak, you can get the best of everything in the same place: sun, shopping, and good food. If you are the kind of person who likes lots of things happening around you, Seminyak is perfect.

Canggu

The mecca for hipsters. If you love healthy food, yoga, surfing and a bustling nightlife then Canggu is the place to be. There is always something going on here: skate competitions, beer pong tournaments or flea markets. It is very common for students to rent a villa together and in this area, there is plenty available for good prices. The negative side is that this area is approximately one hour drive to Udayana University and around 30-40 minutes to Warmadewa University.

Kerobokan

 Located inland and surrounded by beautiful rice fields. This is a more quiet place with many local people. There are plenty of stunning villas available. It’s only a 10 minutes’ drive from the busier areas Canggu and Seminyak. You can still find a range of nice cafés and restaurants around the area and also some popular spas.

 

Jimbaran

The bay is located just south of the airport and offer amazing sunsets and is famous for delicious grilled seafood. During nighttime, the area is very quiet. Jimbaran remains very attached to local traditions, especially when it comes to religious activities. Jimbaran is also where the Udayana campus is located and if you like to have walking distance to school then this area is perfect.

You can find plenty of relaxed restaurants here and during night time there are plenty of bars with live bands. On this side of the island, there are no waves which make it perfect for swimming on the beach. The prices for accommodation are lower in this area and there are many homestays available. To use a motorbike-taxi to Warmadewa University will only cost you 1 euro if you don´t drive your own scooter.
