This is the first video of the Bali travel video series. I travelled from Delhi to Bali with Malaysia Airlines. The itinerary is divided into two legs. The first flight MH191 was from Delhi to Kuala Lumpur and after a layover of 2 hours, the next flight MH715 finally took me to Denpasar, Bali. Watch the video – ‘Malaysia Airlines: Delhi to Bali via Kuala Lumpur’ to more about my experience with Malaysia Airlines, Visa on arrival in Bali, etc…
Delhi to Kuala Lumpur: Malaysia Airlines- MH191
Just like most of the international flights, MH191 was also a late night flight from Delhi. We took off from Delhi’s IGI Airport to reach Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia. It was a comfortable flight of 5 hours. The aircraft was Airbus A303, a widebody aircraft. I enjoyed the in-flight entertainment, comfortable reclining seats and relished the vegetarian food. Although it would be better if the flagship carrier of Malaysia can offer more variety of food for vegetarians. The aircraft landed at KLIA (Kuala Lumpur International Airport) in the next morning.

Kuala Lumpur to Denpasar, Bali: Malaysia Airlines- MH715
After a layover of 3 hours, my next flight was MH715 to Denpasar (Bali) in Indonesia. It took another 3 hours to reach Denpasar, Bali. Unlike the previous one, It was not a widebody aircraft. The leg space was relatively less. But rest all the services were same.
Bali: Visa on Arrival
After reaching Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport I met all other group members with whom I was going to travel for the next 3-4 days. The first formality after landing was to get the visa. Indonesia offers visa on arrival for Indians. The best part is it does not cost anything to get the visa. Unlike Thailand, where until December 2017 the visa on arrival fees was 4000 Indian Rupees (2000 Baht), Indonesia visa is totally free. So it was a simple process of getting the visa. We just stood in the queue and got our passport stamped. So no need of getting Indonesian currency, Rupiah (IDR) before coming to Indonesia. After getting the visa and customs formalities done, you can use the ATMs or the Money exchangers to withdraw IDR.
