Nusa Dua

Nusa Dua

This is what Nusa Dua looks like. It's very Singapore, but without the excuse of being the business capital of Asia run by a much loved despot. If you're enjoying this blog, you won't like Nusa Dua. It is the most manicured place in the world. It's planned tourism, everything Kuta isn't. You look at it and you think "The Indonesian Government is just taking rich suckers for a ride". Guidebook writers have to be more accommodating of the people who stay there. I don't. It's a huge place which is 100% hotels. Who wants to stay in a little world which is nothing but expensive hotels (and, a beach)? Yuk. I knew all this but was completely unprepared for how utterly dreadful it is. There are so many good hotels in real places, you really don't need to stay there. Trust me.
