When people talk about an exotic holiday, Bali is often top of the list. Bali is an island located in Southeast Asia and is part of Indonesia. Famed for its beaches and landscape, it is a great holiday spot. The multitude of activities that you can partake include world class surfing and diving, sightseeing numerous temples and archeological sites.

Getting to Bali is relatively expensive from the US — here’s what we found on matrix.itasoftware.com for around the Thanksgiving holiday.

Almost $1,700 to fly from New York to Bali. Using the low cost carrier guide, we found the low cost carriers that flew into Bali. The usual low cost carrier hubs in Asia showed up — Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. The price to Kuala Lumpur and Singapore were approximately the same price – $1,150, while to Bangkok, it was $1,200.

The next step was to check with AirAsia who flies from Kuala Lumpur to Bali and JetStar from Singapore to Bali to see their price and then make sure the Bangkok to Bali all in price was not less than the Kuala Lumpur or Singapore option.

From Kuala Lumpur, it was 523 Malaysian Ringgit or $163 USD at 3.19 Ringgit to the Dollar. From Singapore, it was $225 Singapore Dollars or $171 USD at 1.3 Singapore Dollars to the Dollar. In the grand scheme of things, both are the same. To complete the hack, we checked the price from Bangkok to Bali on AirAsia and it was 10,680 Thai Bhat or $340 USD at 31.18 Thai Bhat to the Dollar.

By going via Kuala Lumpur or Singapore, a typical flyer would save close to $350. $350 would go a long way in Bali in terms of accommodations.

Key Takeways:

  • Use low cost carriers in a region when possible.

Background Information:

  • Visa: US Citizens – Visas-on-Arrival are valid for 30 days and cost U.S. $25. The passport must have at least 6 month of validity left, otherwise they will deny entry.
  • Currency: Indonesian Rupiah. $1USD = 9,065 IDR
