Flights from Bali (Denpasar)

The Ngurah Rai International Airport, also known as the Denpasar International Airport, is a public airport serving Denapsar in Indonesia. It is owned by the government of Indonesia, and is operated by the PT Angkasa Pura I. It is located in southern Bali, in the Kuta area of Badung. The Ngurah Rai, or so it is called, is the third busiest airport in Indonesia, after Jakarata's Soekarno-Hatta International Airport and Surabaya's Junda International Airport.

The airport was named after I Gusti Ngurah Rai, an Indonesian republican who died in a 'puputan' or death match against the Dutch at Marga in Tabanan, where the Dutch defeated his company with air support during the Indonesian revolution of 1946. Ngurah Rai's bravery and love for country has come at par with many war heroes in Indonesia, and such honor is only well-deserved. Such is the love and care for the airport, that in 2015 it was named as the world's 7th best and as best in Indonesia in Airport Service Quality by the Airport Council International. From up to bottom – security, services, assistance, and availability of flights, the Bali International Airport always goes for the best.

In the recent years, the demand for passenger services from the airport has been growing, and it has been decided that the airport will be moved to a new site in the northern part of Bali. Details for the airport still come in trickles, although it has been identified that the new site will have two runways, to surpass today's airport with only one runway.

Where to go

Jakarta – cosmopolitan from top to bottom with hints of chaos and uncontrollable crowds, Jakarta is the capital city of Indonesia that is full of contrasts. Home to more than a million people from all over the world, it is a mixture of languages and cultures, poverty and wealth, and virtually everything else in between. The city boasts great nightlife scenes, and is known to rank among cities with the worst traffic in the world (part of the culture). When in Jakarta, check out the Istiqlal Mosque, the Grand Indonesia Mall, the Jakarta Cathedral, the National Monument, the Immanuel Church, and many others.

Lombok – Lombok is an island in West Nusa Tenggara province, Indonesia. It is a member of the Lesser Sunda Islands, home to some 3.17 million Indonesians. The island of Lombok is known for its beaches where surfing and diving can be done; its volcanoes, and its hike trails.

Taipei (Taiwan) – Taipei, officially known as Taipei City, is the capital city and a special municipality of Taiwan. It is situated at the northern tip of the country; an enclave of the municipality of New Taipei. Taipei is the political, economic, educational, and cultural center of the country, and one of the major hubs of the Chinese-speaking world. It is considered as a global city, a high-tech industrial area with great transport systems, architectural and cultural landmarks, and a culture that is truly vibrant and fun. When in Taipei, check out the Taipei 101, the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, the Hsing Tian Kong, the Dalongdong Baoan Temple, the National Palace Museum, and Ximending. Try to conquer its night markets too, and its savory street gastronomy that is in tune with many Asian cuisines.

Phuket (Thailand) – Thailand's largest island is an internationally acclaimed beach and island destination, filled with blue lagoons and the best dream-like sunsets and sunrises. Phuket surpasses every expectation of an island haven – and we're just getting started with the waters. Hidden coves, activities, some of the best dive sites, and a culture that is truly Thai, it is one of the most recommended destinations to try via a short- haul flight from Bali. (Compare your Bali notes with your Phuket notes!)
