Whether you're looking to relax and rejuvenate or a place to party after the sun sets, Bali's got you covered. You'll wish your time in Bali will never end.
They say Bali is always a good idea. With so many tropical islands in the region, why Bali? Besides the fact that Ngugah Rai International Airport, Denpasar Bali is built to service some 20 million passengers per annum, here are more reasons that can justify why Bali should be next on your travel list.
Bali is just Beach Perfect!
Bali rose to fame because of its white sandy coasts that allow you to choose from countless beaches around the island. These don’t include the nooks and crannies that you might have found while exploring the shores on foot. Each beach presents different kinds of lure factors that allow every type of visitor to find something to his or her liking – whether you are the party animal, a family of fun-loving children or a couple who just wants to have a romantic getaway – there is a beach for you.
In Bali, R&R stands for Restaurants & Relax
You can get a decent, satisfying meal at a warung (local eatery) or dine at a fancy hotel for Michelin-star cuisines at a price that will not cost you another holiday. Bali adapts to the appetite of tourists – if you are a clean eater, or vegan, or a buffet warrior – there are options. It is highly recommended that you try their local cuisine, but if that doesn’t go so well with your stomach, you can find out what your belly agrees with from their international food options. They have Mexican, burgers, pizzas, Japanese, Chinese, Korean – you name it, they’ve got it. And when it all gets too much, there are many cooking classes that will teach you a recipe or two, so you can take Bali cuisine with you wherever you go.
Do The Bali Local Motion
Could it be that everyone is just in a good mood when they are in paradise? Maybe that’s stretching it a little, but Bali is relatively safe and enjoyable for the 99% that visit, so why shouldn’t one be in good spirits? The locals see tourists and foreigners all the time, so they are approachable when you need some help or directions. Simple English is not a problem for most areas!
It’s Bali, Go Figure
Bali is called the Island of Gods for a reason. It has an intangible force and energy that just magnetizes and mesmerizes. Investigate Bali’s religious roots by visiting the Hindu temples. You can start with Pura Besakih, the Mother Temple of Bali. There are also many ceremonies and celebrations throughout the year, and many of them can be enjoyed by tourists. These include the Omed-Omedan kissing festival and the monster parade before the day of silence (Nyepi).
When in Bali, Eat, pray, love yourself
Pamper yourself at the spas that are available islandwide. From hot stone massages to body scrubs, there are plenty of packages to choose from. Foot reflexology is a popular and affordable way to wind up after a whole day of walking. You can also get your nails and hair done. Otherwise, reading a book by the beach while listening to the sound of the waves doesn’t sound bad at all, does it?
Bali rhymes with Samadhi
Many visit Bali on yoga-holidays, and they do nothing but yoga all day long! That must mean that you will not only be guided by Yogis that are very experienced, but you will also never feel out of place doing a Vrksasana in serenity. If you just want to pop into a class for a short session, that’s easy too. Many yoga schools have one-time classes that you can join. Classes range from classic hatha to meditation groups. Take your pick!
If chilling on the beach feels too unexciting for you, it’s time to get on those wave riders and get the adrenaline rush from water sports. How does kite surfing sound? If you are up for something drier, look to the forests and mountains. Take a trek up Mount Agung (Check the volcano alerts first!) or go trekking at the Jungle of Twin Lakes. After that, you can go white water rafting at Telega Waja River.
