I have now visited Kuta, Bali twice. The first time after arriving from Singapore, and now after Kuta, Lombok. Kuta is busy, touristy, and a bit stifling. I was very lucky to find an amazing guesthouse, Gong’s Corner, that is not only very cheap, but clean and the staff are incredibly friendly. I surfed for a couple of days with the couple I met in Kuta, Lombok before they flew to Yogyakarta and I went to Canggu, Bali.
