While one cannot travel to Bali by road, there are ferry services that make travelling to Bali possible. Bali is connected to Java and Jakarta by several bus services. There are regular buses that ply between Jakarta and Bali. These buses are operated by private companies like Lorena, Pahala Kencana and Kramat Djati. These are all long journeys (15 to 24hr), so it is recommended to take an air-conditioned bus like the Lorena buses, which are comfortable and have a bathroom attached. These buses are used by locals on a regular basis so be prepared for crowds and noise.
Journey Suggestion: Since the journey is very long, air-conditioned and deluxe buses are preferred for travelling into Bali.
There are no railway services in Bali. Travellers can take a train to Banyuwangi and later catch the ferry to Bali. From Jakarta, Yogyakarta or Bandung there are trains to Surabaya's Gubeng Station.
