Other useful information
If this is your first time to Bali, beware of people at the airport trying to carry your bag for you. They are very persistent and demand money as you exit the airport, which is not a nice way to start your Bali Holiday and certainly not the right impressions of the locals!
Bali has one international terminal and one domestic terminal in the same location.
