Participants arrange their travel to and from Bali. Dan will use Japan Bali Tours, phone: 03-5747-5652, to arrange his tickets.

Taxis are readily available at the Denpasar airport and it takes about 1 hr. 15 min. to reach the hotel from the airport. There is a prepaid taxi counter at the airport; the cost to the Ananda Cottages is about 95,000 RPS, or about 1000 yen.
