What are Roads Like in Bali?

Roads in Bali are in very variable conditions. In the larger metropolitan areas like Denpasar, roads are in better shape than those found in more rural areas. Roads in Bali are generally bumpy, and have random hazards including potholes, gravel piles, parked vehicles, livestock, and religious processions. Driving can be best described as adventurous.

Roads are slippery after rains, and will occasionally flood. Beware of hazards such as landslides, downed trees, and unmarked holes. Streets can be very narrow, and also occasionally unpaved. Larger roads are usually in better condition than smaller ones.
