Bali: Jimbaran Bay…

by on Jul.29, 2013, under Life, Photography

No trip to Bali is complete without being totally ripped off with a dinner on the beach at Jimbaran Bay 🙂

Basically the drivers bring loads of tourists here so you can sit at dodgy tables out on the beach (which was very nice) and watch the sunset (we mostly lucked out here) and pay astronomically exorbitant fees to select and eat “freshly” cooked (totally overcooked grilled to death) seafood. Yes it’s very expensive and yes you’re getting pwned by your driver who’s guaranteed to be getting kickbacks from the restaurant but you’re paying for the view and the experience of having a musical act come and play at your table (which you have to pay for mind you :)) and eating out on the beach near the water.

If you’re not up for wasting one million (Rupiah) on overpriced seafood on the experience then stay away otherwise just go with the flow 🙂 The girls had a very good time and they don’t really care so much about the food 🙂 – and if anything the guys selling freshly cooked corn on the beach for 10,000RP (about $1) were a much tastier item
