What Are Driving Times Between Destinations?

Driving times in Bali vary depending on where you are going, time of day, time of year, and any number of random road conditions (construction, religious processions, etc.) - all of which create traffic.

Speed limits are rarely observed, but in general, maximum speed limits on highways or tollways are 60–100 km/h (37-62 mph). On all other roads, it is 40–80 km/h (25-50 mph). The minimum speed limit is 20 km/h (12 mph) lower than the posted maximum. In practice, outside of highways and tollways, you will rarely be able to exceed 40 km/h (25 mph) due to traffic and road conditions.
