More About Flights to Seminyak

When's the Cheapest Time of Year to Fly to Seminyak?

Heading to Seminyak on a budget? If so, visit during the monsoon months, which run from October to April. Flights are cheapest at this time of year, and you'll be able to pick up a bargain if you don't mind a bit of rain. During the monsoon, you'll find the mornings are typically warm and sunny with the afternoons bringing torrential downpours. Plan to spend the early hours of the day surfing and sunbathing, and the afternoons shopping, hitting the spas, or bar hopping along the beach.

Not only are prices cheaper at this time of year, but you'll also find fewer people to contend with. During the high season, Seminyak is packed with tourists. Once October rolls around, the number of tourists declines, and you'll be able to find a quiet spot of sand for yourself. 

How do I Get to Seminyak From the Airport?

If you're heading to Seminyak, you'll most likely arrive at Ngurah Rai International Airport, 10 kilometers south. Ngurah Rai is Indonesia's third biggest airport, with hundreds of flights arriving from Australia and Southeast Asia every day. 

Getting to Seminyak from Ngurah Rai is a simple process. Your first option is to rent a car from from Europcar, Hertz, Thrifty, or Toyota Rent-A-Car. Alternatively, taxis are affordable in Bali, even from the airport. Walk outside the airport gate (a five-minute walk from arrivals) and flag down a Blue Bird Taxi. Blue Bird is the safest and cheapest taxi company in Bali, and they always use the meter. Expect to pay 30,000 Indonesian Rupiah for a ride to Seminyak. Public transportation is hot, uncomfortable, and unreliable from the airport, so avoid the minivan and bus options. 

Which Airport Hotels are Best in Seminyak?

As Seminyak is only 10 kilometers from the airport, you're in the perfect location for getting to the airport, and many of the Seminyak hotels offer an airport shuttle to and from Ngurah Rai International Airport. Bliss Surfer Hotel is great for budget-minded travelers, offering clean and modern rooms, a fitness center, swimming pool, and a round-trip airport shuttle. If you're looking for something a little more upmarket, how about the Eden Hotel Kuta Bali? It's perfectly located for access to the Discovery Mall and Waterbom Park, which gives you lots of opportunity to relax before your flight.

Where Can You Fly to and From Seminyak?

A large number of international airlines serve Ngurah Rai International Airport, so you'll be able to find a cheap flight in. It's worth taking a look at AirAsia if you can find a cheap flight to Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, or Singapore -- they're not usually included in airline aggregation sites, and often offer the cheapest flights in Southeast Asia. From the United States, you'll be looking at connecting in Europe or Asia with airlines like KLM, Cathay Pacific, China Airlines, Jetstar, or Qatar Airways. 

Direct flights are available from Ngurah Rai International Airport to much of Southeast Asia, including Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Singapore, Ho Chi Minh City, and Siem Reap, as well as Eastern Asian nations like China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and South Korea, to name a few. You'll also find dozens of direct flights to Australian cities, such as Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, and Perth. 

What Can You Expect From Ngurah Rai International Airport?

Passing through Ngurah Rai International Airport is a crowded and chaotic experience, but shouldn't be too stressful if you've traveled in Asia before. At the airport, you'll find everything you'll need, including ATMs, duty-free shops, and restaurants. You should aim to arrive for your departing flight with three hours to spare, as queues at immigration are often long. Remember that you'll have to pay an airport departure tax when you leave, which is 200,000 Indonesian Rupiah for international flights and 40,000 Indonesian Rupiah for domestic flights. 

Seminyak is a fantastic destination for a budget traveler, with lots of cheap flights, affordable accommodation, and fun-filled activities on offer.
