Bali riding an scooter

Ubud to Amed, Bali

Our accommodation in Bali was a paradise an as all good paradises it was far away from everything. Ok, not so far away but far enough to need our own transport.

The motorbike (50cc scooter) is the best way, and sometimes the only option, to move trough the small and crazy streets of Bali. With a car could be impossible and always dangerous, all the paths are narrow and local people use to turn around the corners occupying the whole space. So, we took an scooter.

With less than 5€ per day we rented an old Honda SFX, the same scooter that Ana used to have when she was a teenager! Small and easy to drive discovering all the little Balines towns.

Our first big excursion was going from Ubud to Amed, a tiny fishing village in the North-East of the isle.  It was a long journey, 4 hours with to stop overs to see the Goa Lawah temple, famous because on its cave full of bats (they say is sacred, we found it a little bit scary) and the second stop at  Tenganan, the only village remained from the ancient Balines culture.

  1. Hi there!
    Me and my girlfriend will travel to Bali in a couple of weeks. We would like to rent a scooter there, but we cannot find any rental places with scooters smaller than 100cc. Since neither of us has the right license for large motorbikes, we would need a scooter with 50cc or less. So my question is: where did you rent that 50cc Honda SFX? I would really like to know!

    • Hi Thomas!
      We had almost the same problem as one of us had the license for bigger motorbikes and the other one hadn’t. We took this 50cc Honda SFX at Ubud, we didn’t book it before. When we arrived we just asked to the boys working on the place where we were sleeping and the recommend us how to find the moto. Sometimes they can also bring you the moto. It’s realy really cheap and easy!! You won’t have problems! The most of the motos running around Bali are 50cc. Have an amazing time there!!
