Taxi etiquette in Indonesia?

Yesterday I took a (metred) taxi in Bali. Upon arriving at my destination, I attempted to pay the driver. He said "no sir, no sir" and made me get out of the taxi, at which point I paid him by passing the money to him through the open passenger-side window. Is this some kind of local taxi etiquette? Is there a reason for it?

Is Bali drivable?

We're planning a trip next year and will be staying (for free!) near Lovina on the North-central coast. We'd like to rent a car for the week and day-trip to see the other parts of the island. Is this realistic and/or advisable? How are the roads in reality? [more inside]

What to do for five hours in Bali without much money

I'm in Bali on a work-related trip, but my colleague is jet-lagged and has cancelled the stuff we were meant to be doing today. So what is a good fun or relaxing itinerary for the next six hours, without spending too much money? I'll just hang out in the hotel pool if all else fails, but maybe Metafilter can come up with a better plan? [more inside]

chiang mai to Krabi: what flights options?? air asia to phuket? discover with Thai airways? other?

Thailand travel planning: trying to get from chiang mai to krabi to Denapasar,Bali as effectively as possible. So far I found these options: use Air Asia to phuket from chiang mai and take a cab for a couple hours to krabi. (to and and back) Use discover thailand fares from thai airways, but they dont have direct flight to krabi, so travel takes like almost the entire day :( Suggestions? travel time would be cnx to krabi 02/22 and krabi to bali 02/25.
