Sanur was nice I have to say, with a real mixture ranging from luxury boutique low rise hotels to obviously the first, seen its heyday, high rise property with peeling paint but still popular for packages and with an air of faded decadence
Ready for our flight, we headed to the airport, with the thought of possibly overstaying our visa in the back of our minds. After check-in we preceeded to the departure lounge, through customs and then we were hit with it. Excuse me but you are 1 day over on your visa. With that, we were ushered into the customs room with stern or was it ignorant, customs officials hanging around. Eventually, we were shown into another room where they demanded $20 each for overstaying. We explained, time and time again, that if you work by the 24hr clock as we arrived in so late, then it really is 7 days. More and more people were sent to see us but still nothing was being resolved, pay or suffer the consequences. As neither of us fancied being placed in a Balinese jail, we coughed up the dough and before Tilly handed it to the rude, irate customs clerk, she told him that it was the last time we were ever to visit Bali. As if he was bothered! As we exited, the room was crammed full of people in the same position, a long night ahead boys as Tilly smiled!
- Wreck diving
- Being constantly hassled (understandably though)
- The knock-on affects of the bomb on tourism
- Customs and Seven Day visa isn't 7x24hrs!
