Yes it’s true! In the next few years tourists will be able to travel easier across the island by train. Provincial government signed an agreement with the related ministries to begin developing Bali’s first ever railway in early December.
The project will require approx USD666 mil and it will be used only for tourism. After the completion of the project, it will take 6 to 8 hours for visitors to make a round trip across Bali, avoiding the super-crowded roads.
