Introducing the Bali Mandara Toll Bridge

This morning I went to Nusa Dua from Denpasar.  I drive via the toll bridge. That will save me about 45 minutes. Instead of going for one hour drive, I could cut it into 10 minutes.

If you are in Bali, you may want to use this toll bridge to save time whenever you go on tour provided that your hotel is located in Nusa Dua or Jimbaran.  If you stay in Kuta, Legian or Seminyak, there is no need to use this toll it does not connect to that places.

Going on the toll, you can see quite beatiful scenery of the Benoa harbor and the mangroves along the toll. In certain area of the sea, you can see fisherman boats, and people going fishing on small boats. Maybe there is no time to capture that with your camera, because you can not stop. But this scenery is great alternative to the traffic jam you may encounter when you drive through the normal route.

Besides Nusa Dua, one end of the toll bridge is the Ngurah Rai statue which is close the airport. This means if  you're just arrive at the airport and wishing to go a quicker way to Nusa Dua or Sanggaran or Sanur, you can use the toll bridge. You can save lots of time.

Payment to go to the toll is only around USD 1 at the time when I wrote this post (or rp 10000). Use the 10,000 rupiah note to pay, it will be quicker that way.

As you can see from the photo, there is not much traffic on the toll bridge. There is no traffic jam there, maybe for the next upcoming few years. Who knows?
