How much did you pay for flights? I just check flight prices randomly sometimes and I noticed Bali is on the higher end compared to other budget travel destinations for some reason.

It was a package deal with STA for Ubud and Kuta, the total package was R32000, I don't know what portion of that was the flights though.

Kuta was boring, much preferred Ubud.

Flights now are indeed mental, especially on Qatar which we flew both in 2016 to Thailand and 2019 to Bali.

Is Thailand a better place to visit or is Bali?

The Rand stretches further in Thailand that Bali we found.

We plan on going back to Thailand next year, not Bali any time soon. Although, having watched Paddy Doyle on Youtube's tour of Northern Bali, that is less explored than Southern Bali where all the tourists go.
 
I suppose if I were in Europe I would just get a cheap coffee for breakfast im sure there are ways of not spending to much money. If you don't eat breakfast normally then why do it in some of the most expensive places

I think you are missing the point, cheap or normal to them is expensive for us. A cappuccino in Starbucks for example, which is I suppose an average price place in the UK, is 4.50 GBP, which is R105. And fast food is also way more expensive than us here. I had a quarter pounder medium sized meal in Finland last week which was 11.50 Euros, that's R230.

Been to both. Was in Thailand last year.

It really depends on you as a person I would say.

Certain areas in Bali is very touristy, liked it nonetheless. Traffic is hectic in those areas but again it ads to vibrancy of the area. You obviously get areas less travelled by tourists. The same is true for both Thailand and Bali.

We were in Phuket (Patong) and Krabi. Patong speaks for itself however Krabi is more laid back and naturally beautiful. Thailand beast Bali on natural beauty.

We are planning a trip for next year and we are conflicted between Bali and Thailand. We like both for different reasons.

The motorbike (scooter) trips we had in Bali was a standout. The freedom we had to do and go as we please was amazing.

Accommodation in Patong and Krabi seems to have doubled and tripled in price since last year with the inverse happening in Bali.

This.

Was talking with the wife about going to London to go watch a couple of Arsenal matches. The flights are cheap but after checking the costs once there......we decided to buy a bigger tv.
