Denpasar is both the capital of Bali and a gateway to this beautiful island, in all its natural beauty and vibrant local culture. Denpasar is an amazing tourist destination in its own right, brimming with ornate temples, fascinating museums and cultural centres. As the capital of Bali, Denpasar is also an important commercial hub, welcoming business travellers all year round with typical Balinese hospitality.
Surrounded by dramatic sand dunes and the vast open spaces of the Arabian Desert, Dammam Airport (known as King Fahd International Airport) is truly vast with six levels housing a huge selection of facilities, check-in desks, lounges and porter services.
Transportation and parking
The airport has a multi-storey car park attached to it. On the roof of this car park, you can find a mosque, which can be accessed from the passenger terminal through two enclosed, air-conditioned bridges and an additional open bridge.
The airport is around 50 kilometres from Dammam city centre, but is well served by frequent bus links and taxis. Carrier SAPTCO runs shuttle buses between the airport and the bus station every hour. The trip takes around 45 minutes. Taxis are available and are located in the rank outside the main entrance. A limousine service is also available.
Arriving at King Fahd International Airport
There is only one terminal at the airport, but it is vast. Departure check-in is located on Level 6, while boarding gates are on Level 4.
Facilities and amenities
King Fahd International Airport was the first in Saudi Arabia to open duty-free shops within its airport. There is a separate area dedicated to shops selling goods that passengers might find useful during their travels, and in the arrivals area you will also find plenty of cafés, restaurants and banks.
ATMs and currency exchange points are available in the departure and arrival areas. For a light meal with a view, head to the fourth floor (above check-in), where you'll find an observation deck and a café serving a buffet selection of food.
The largest city and the capital of the beautiful island of Bali, Denpasar is a stunning blend of ancient and modern. From spectacular monuments and tranquil parks to glittering skyscrapers, it’s a friendly city that welcomes both business and leisure travellers.
Full of temples and palaces, there is plenty to see and do in this busy city. Book a flight to Denpasar with Qatar Airways and you’ll find a city that many tourists overlook as a destination in its own right.
If you pause for a while and explore Denpasar you’ll discover an authentic glimpse of life in Bali away from the usual tourist resorts and hotels, and an incredibly warm and friendly welcome from its people.
At the very centre of the city (quite literally) is the Alun-Alun Puputan square, with its huge, four-faced statue, which is supposed to defend the four cardinal points of the compass. It’s also an incredibly useful landmark if you get lost at any time.
To find out more about the history and culture of the island and its people a visit to the Bali Museum is highly recommended. It is spread across four pavilions, with the main pavilion housing a collection of ancient stone, bronze and wooden artefacts.
The southern pavilion has exhibitions of the country’s textiles, while the northern pavilion focuses on the history of Balinese performance art. The central pavilion is devoted to Balinese spirituality.
The Lapangan Puputan Margarana park is a large open space in the heart of the city. You can’t miss the huge Bajra Sandhi monument, which dominates the park.
Bali’s capital is also full of temples that are exquisitely decorated, including the Palace of Satria and the Royal Temples, and the beautiful Pura Maospahit, which is believed to date back to the 14th century.
