Your Itinerary for an Unforgettable Holiday in Bali
The countless things you can do and see in Bali means that the island has something to offer for everyone, whether you are visiting for a weekend, 5 days, or a week. Here we’ve created two itineraries to suit your trip length.
If you’re staying in Bali for the weekend…
Start your weekend right at the iconic Kuta Beach. The buzzing beach beckons you to recline and sun bathe, swim, surf to your heart’s content, or relax on the beach as you get your hair braided. Then venture down the road for the local beachside markets offering plethora of food, arts and crafts or souvenirs. For more shopping options, head to the Kuta markets or the breezy Beachwalk Mall. For dinner, sample the exotic Balinese cuisine at Feast, where our chefs use only the freshest ingredients to highlight the superb local flavors.
The next day, unleash your inner child at the Waterbom Park, ranked the best water park in Asia by TripAdvisor. Enjoy splashing in the water and go down over 10 slides spread over the 3.8 hectare area. Then spend the afternoon recovering from your adrenaline rush with a traditional Balinese massage at Shine Spa, before ending the night with a scrumptious indulgence at one of the beachside restaurants at Beachwalk Mall.
If you’re spending 5 Days to a week in Bali…
Those staying in Bali for 5 days to 1 week can experience more aspects of the island beyond the above. Making your way North and hiking the majestic Mount Batur is a must have on your itinerary. Join one of the many tours that start in the middle of the night and take you on a guided hike to reach the peak of the mountain exactly at sunrise. The view is sure to leave you speechless.
Next, visit the artistic side of Bali in Ubud. Drop by many of the art galleries and visit the workshops of up and coming artists. Demonstrate your skills with a paintbrush or sculpting tools with an art class at the workshop or simply pick up a unique piece for yourself. Then traverse the area, where you will find many eclectic coffee shops and family-owned organic restaurants, some of which overlook the visually stunning rice fields of Ubud.
Add a dose of culture to your holiday itinerary with a visit to the Tanah Lot Temple, a stunning Balinese temple built atop a cliff overlooking the ocean. While you’re in the area, stop by the neighboring Pura Batu Bolong, and enjoy in the sea breeze as you take in the raw beauty of the temple that has seemingly risen from the sea.
Sports enthusiasts and adrenaline seekers should most definitely have Nusa Dua Beach on their itinerary, where a plethora of water sports await. From banana boating and jet skiing, to windsurfing and parasailing, enjoy the exhilarating feeling as you glide on or above the water.
Families visiting Bali are recommended to fit the Bali Safari and Marine Park on their itinerary. The enormous park includes a zoo housing animals in natural surroundings, a water park, a theatre displaying Balinese art, as well as Ganesha Park, which features a 30 feet tall statue of Ganesha and several bathing elephants.
