###What to expect when hiring a car from Bali The roads in the heavily populated areas in Bali, including Denpasar, are mostly in reasonable condition. However, the roads can be quite narrow, especially due to the heavy pedestrian traffic on each side. In an effort to regulate traffic flow, there are many one-way roads. Always be alert when going through the one-way roads as if you miss your turn off, it might be a while before you are able to find your way back. Watch out for heavy congestion at peak periods. In addition, keep in mind that red traffic lights are often considered to be 'just a suggestion', and it is not unusual for cars or even bikes to swerve all of a sudden into your lane without warning.
###Getting to your destination
Kuta is Bali's best known tourist resort area. It is established as a surfing paradise thanks to its long sandy beach with little to no dangerous rocks or coral, perfect even for beginners. Kuta also has plenty of spas, although it is more of a party zone especially at night.
The former fishing village can be reached by the main Jalan Ngurah Rai bypass.
While Ubud seems to be like one small town, it is actually made up of fourteen villages in central Bali. Famous as a hub for arts and crafts, it is widely regarded as the cultural centre of Bali. Much of Ubud and the neighbouring villages contain artists' workshops and galleries, as well as some impressive architectural gems and other sights. In fact, Ubud has so many attractions and interesting sights, including museums and galleries, temples, and other historical sites. You'll also want to just stop and admire the beautiful landscapes in Ubud.
When driving to Ubudu, keep in mind that the town is in Gianyar regency, so some of the road signs will only indicate Gianyar.
On the east coast of South Bali is the town of Sanur, the oldest upscale resort area on the island. It generally has a calm and relaxed ambiance, despite the abundance in restaurants and accommodation for tourists. Sanur is home to several attractions, like the International Kite Festival, Le Mayeur Museum, Mangrove Information Centre, Serangan Island Turtle Conservation Centre, and several diving spots.
The main Jalan Bypass Ngurah Rai is the western boundary of Sanur, on which there are plenty of signposted exit points that lead to Sanur. From Denpasar, the drive takes about 10 to 15 minutes.
