Lost in a two-street paradise: padang bai daily

The quiet paradise of Padang Bai

Leaving the boutique-y Seminyak behind, our van arrived in the small fishing town of Padang Bai. After the bags been droppes off, we eagerly paid 50,000 rupiah (that’s five bucks) for a scooter and went out exploring. A quick search on Google maps reveals that the “city” has two streets, well three if you include the mountain road serving as the only way in and out of this beach town.

After a fruitless search for the elusive babi guling – roasted suckling pig, we quickly found a place to eat, which turned out to be absolutely amazing. Puri Rai served up fresh, tasty local and international dishes and it was simply the best food we had in Bali. We proceeded to return to this restaurant every night during our stay!

We stayed for 4 nights at the Padang Bai Beach Resort. Beautiful place, professionally managed with friendly staff. We stayed at a clean and spacious garden bungalow with a large outdoor bathroom (which is refreshing but honestly a bit horrifying if you had to use the bathroom in the middle of the night and was attacked by a giant moth).
