Road trippin' in a cabriolet

Blessed with breathtaking natural wonders scattered all around the region, including along the roads that lead to its numerous picturesque destinations, Bali is a fitting place to take a road trip - preferably in a convertible.

Fortunately, options are readily available for doing just that. One of them is from rental car provider PT Golden Bird Bali, which offers the sophisticated Mini Cooper S Cabriolet as a self-drive for both domestic and foreign tourists.

With prices starting at Rp 1.8 million (S$180) for the minimum 6-hour rental, which includes a full tank of gas, the service has also been used as a wedding car by couples celebrating their nuptials on the island.
