$100 Taxi Ride

Episode of Popular TV Program Filmed in Bali.


Bali News: $100 Taxi Ride
Click Image to Enlarge

(6/3/2002)

Now in its 2nd season, the "$100 Taxi Ride" - a television program shown on Canada's Life Network and internationally on the National Geographic Channel, came to Bali in late May to film a segment.

A co-production of West Park Pictures (UK) and Great North Productions (Canada), the travel adventure show circles the globe to meet interesting and amusing local cab drivers who take the viewers on a personal tour by taxi for as far as $100 will go.

And in a Bali Taxi, $100 takes you a very long way.

Using compact and highly portable sound and camera equipment, an invisible passenger got "up close and personal" with a Bali Taxi driver, Made Sukra, who covered almost the entire breadth of the Island in what proved to be very much an "off the beaten track" experience. The production team left Bali feeling they had just filmed one of their most successful episodes with a local driver who, in their words, proved himself a one-man "entertainment center, a non stop resource of imitations, dancing and humor."

Their only complaint: How to fit so much excellent footage into a single segment of the program?

Coming soon to a TV set near you? The Journey Continues: The $100 Bali Taxi Ride Part II"

Bali Discovery Tours provided casting, location scouting, and local logistical support to the $100 Taxi Ride during their Bali filming.
