Bali

8 weeks in Bali? Yes please.

We host our coding bootcamps in Bali for about a million reasons. This little Indonesian island has it all for an awesome course and amazing trip. Bali is an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise with incredible jungles, mountains, waterfalls, scuba diving/snorkeling, world-class surfing and endless wildlife. Bali also has an incredibly rich culture and history, with unique art, traditional dancing and ornate temples.
 

Ubud, the heart of Bali

Our course takes place in Ubud, the cultural heart of Bali. A jungle village dating back to the eighth century, Ubud mixes deep-rooted traditional Bali with a thriving modern expat community. Here you can explore the nearby waterfalls and caves, do yoga, go river rafting, visit historical Hindu holy sites, take a stroll through the Monkey Forest, or just relax and enjoy vistas of rice paddy terraces.
 

Want to zip around like a local?

We can arrange a 2 month scooter rental so you can explore Ubud and its surroundings to your heart’s desire!

 

And when you’re not in class…

There are endless activities and sights to see in Bali when you’re taking a break from coding on the weekends. Head to Mount Batur before dawn to summit the active volcano at sunrise. Take a weekend trip to the beach to catch some surf. Or hop over to Nusa Lembongan for snorkeling and diving amidst Indonesia’s world-class reefs. The possibilities are endless in Bali…it’s truly paradise.
 

Preparing for your trip

Weather

Expect warm days and nights, with highs around 88 degrees (31 celsius), and nighttime lows around 73 (23 celsius). Ubud gets its lush natural beauty from being located in a tropical rainforest! Rainy season is dying down in the March – April timeframe, but you can still expect intermittent rain showers mixed with sunshine throughout the months.

Clothing

When visiting temples or holy sites, sarongs can be rented to cover up your shorts (men included!). Both men and women must cover their shoulders to enter holy sites – save the tank tops for the beach!

Currency

As of writing, $1 US Dollar equals about 13,500 Indonesian Rupiah. Make sure you let your bank know you’re traveling so they don’t put a hold on your ATM card!

Foreign travel requirements

Passport – Your passport must be valid for at least 6 months after the first day of the trip, and have at least 1 blank page for the Indonesian visa.
Visa – You will need a 60 day tourist visa that we will help organize.

Immunizations

No immunizations are required to enter Indonesia unless you’ve traveled from a yellow fever region, in which case you will need to demonstrate proof of your yellow fever immunization. If you have any questions or concerns about your status, just let us know and we can sort it out in no time.
