Transportation To Pura Dalem Agung Padangtegal Ubud
After you see the location of Padangtegal’s great temple of death, you need to know the best way to get to the temple of Dalem Agung in terms of transportation choices.
Mainly there are two types of choice for transportation in Bali, public transport or private transport. However, for public transport, the only option is a taxi meter. For taxis, it is more appropriate for you who would like to visit a place close to your hotel. Doing this will save your travel budget. Therefore, I recommend choosing a taxi meter if you pick a hotel in Ubud and would like to visit Padangtegal’s great temple of death in Ubud.
However, suppose you want to visit more than one place in one day. In that case, I recommend getting private transport, as private transportation is more affordable for the whole day and the cost is counted by hourly or daily usage, not by a meter. For private transport, you can get a self-drive car rental or a driver if you are not confident about driving in Bali.
Suppose you decide to drive a car or want to ride a motorbike. Please ensure you have an international driving license issued by your country. Otherwise, there is a high chance you will get fined by the Indonesian police.
