Banks are open from Monday to Friday, generally from 8:00am to 2:00pm. ATMs (cash machines) work 24 hours a day. All banks close down at weekends and on public holidays. There are plenty of currency exchange offices, banks and cash machines throughout the city.

A variety of excellent half day, full day and overnight tour packages are available from your hotel desk or any of the numerous travel agents and tour operators which abound in Bali. You can also find a car and driver who will also be your guide. Tell the driver your desired route and negotiate a fee. An important virtue to have while on the road in Bali is patience! Although the road system in the heavily populated areas is quite reasonable (condition wise), it can also be heavily congested at peak periods. Ceremonial processions often take up the entire road so if you’re caught behind a procession, enjoy the colourful experience.
