Getting to Bali
By Sea
The main sea route is by ferry from the eastern tip of Java. Ferries leave Ketapang on Java every 15 to 30 minutes, 24 hours a day.

By Air
If traveling by air, your point of entry and exit is the Ngurah Rai international airport of Denpasar (code: DPS). Many international airlines have daily flights to and from Bali. The airport is also well connected to the rest of Indonesia by the country's half-dozen domestic carriers.

If connecting between domestic and international flights, note that the connection will involve getting from one terminal to another, which requires a short 10 to 15 minute walk.

If flying to Bali from Europe, you may wish to consider Thai or Singapore airlines, which will involve a change of planes in Bangkok or Singapore, respectively. Flights from North America typically involve transits of Taiwan, Japan or Hong Kong.
