: 3 alternative ways to travel to Bali without flying

Although Mount Agung in Karangasem, Bali, spewed lava during its latest eruption on Monday night, the other parts of the island are still safe to visit.

At the time of writing, Ngurah Rai International Airport remains open. However, if you are worried that the airport is closed, fret not, as has compiled three ways to visit the Island of the Gods without flying.

By train

Trains are among the alternative methods of transportation. When compared with buses or car, the train journey is shorter, making it more convenient for travelers.

Travelers from Jakarta can choose between the Jakarta-Surabaya-Banyuwangi or Jakarta-Yogyakarta-Banyuwangi routes.

By bus

Those who want to go directly to Bali can opt to take a bus from Pulo Gebang bus station in East Jakarta.

Pahala Kencana, Kramat Djati Jakarta, Lorena and Safari Dharma Raya are among the bus companies that offer a Jakarta-Bali route. Priced at Rp 500,000 per person, the journey usually takes more than 25 hours.

Travellers can expect cooking lessons in a bamboo-clad centre designed by Elora Hardy and Sacred Nap relaxation treatments…
