Joining Instructions

When arriving at Denpasar Airport in Bali you will want to exit Customs into the arrival hall. Once here, there are money changers but they do not offer the best rate, so its best to wait until you arrive in Sanur. There are ATMs available that distribute Indonesian Rupiah (the local currency).

For travellers with a transfer arranged through G Adventures:
Upon arrival to the Bali Ngurah Rai International Airport (Denpasar International Airport), walk out of the arrival terminal, turn left and walk through the Duty Free Shop. Once you come to the exit, you will see a sign for the toilets and the domestic terminal (pointing left). Please turn left immediately towards the toilets as indicated on the sign. After around 50 meters you will pass WH Smith Express just before the toilets. Please continue around 10 meters further, where our driver will wait near the entrance of the toilets. If you cannot find your driver within fifteen minutes of arrival, please contact our local transfer operator:

Local Transfer Contact Number :+62 81 138038 20

For travellers arranging their own transport:
Once you have stepped outside, there is a taxi stand with set rate taxis to various destinations on the island. The prices are listed on the wall and can be paid in Rupiah or in US Dollars (your exchange rate will be slightly lower than what you will get in Sanur) Here you book and pay for your taxi and receive a voucher. They will then show you to your taxi.

The drive to Sanur is approximately 30 minutes, but can take much longer if the traffic is bad.

What to Take

What you need to bring depends on the trip you have chosen and the countries or regions you are planning to visit. We suggest that you pack as lightly as possible as your are expected to carry your own luggage. As a rule we try not to have to walk more than 15-20 mintues with your bags which is why we recommend keeping the weight of your bags between 10-15kg/22-30lb. Suitcases are not recommended for G Adventures trips! Most travellers carry a backpack or rolling bag of small to medium size (no XXL ones please!) as they need to fit with you in buses or on trains. You will also need a day pack/bag to carry water, cameras and other electronics like ipods and mobile phones. If your trip involves overnights in homestays, villages or camping then you usually have the opportunity to rent sleeping bags if need be instead of bringing them with you.
