GETTING TO GREEN SCHOOL BALI

The school is situated in the rural village of Sibang Kaja in beautiful Bali Island. The campus can be easily accessed by bicycle, motorcycle or car – it is located about 30-mins from Ubud or Canggu; 1 hour from Seminyak, Sanur and 1,5 hour from the Airport.

I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport in Denpasar, Bali – there are many flights in and out of Bali each day, which makes it easy to get to and from Bali from multiple locations.

For transportation from the Airport to Green School/Green Camp Lodge vice versa, Gojek or Grab apps are recommended. You can download Gojek or Grab apps on your phone and book it there. You can choose to go with a scooter or a car on the apps and pay by cash (it’s like an Uber app). It costs around IDR150,000 – 200,000. (Please note that some areas are listed as red zones, such as Ubud, meaning you won’t be able to get online transport and drivers won’t pick you up from this area, but drop off is okay).

For pick up service, we can help you to arrange it. It costs usually around IDR 300,000 – 350,000 from Airport to Green School/ Green Camp Lodge and vice versa (also depends on the traffic). If you wish to use the service, please drop an email to greeneducator@greenschool.org and provide us with your flight booking details.

Prior and after the course, you can book a cozy place from these websites: Booking.comAgodaTiket.comTraveloka, or AirBnb. There are not many options around Green School for accommodation, but there are Green Village and Bambu Indah

Bali is a very safe place for single travelers and it is likely you will make many friends during the course.
