If you want to visit Bali but wonder what to do there? Well, Bali is like Mustafa Centre in Singapore- you name it, they have it. You can find almost every activity in Bali, maybe except for winter sports, but you can go surfing instead.
The older generation can spend days sailing on luxury catamarans and visiting Nusa Lembongan. But, if you like water sports, there’re plenty of choices to choose from, including parasailing and fly board.
Fishing enthusiasts can try fishing at the open sea, while adrenaline seekers should try rafting on the river. Finally, don’t forget to spare a day for diving or snorkeling. What else can you do in Bali?
Everything depends on your preferences. Do you like nature? Then you can go trekking in the jungle and discover a hidden waterfall. If you feel ready for real adventure, climb the volcano and enjoy the beautiful sunrise from the top. Finally, visit Ubud and discover the cultural centre of Bali.
Go for a bike tour among rice fields, or if you like more adrenaline, then a quad adventure is for you. Go for a motorbike ride around Bali; you can rent a regular bike or an honest Harley Davidson.
If you prefer to relax, you can spend your day at the Balinese spa (for women)
or have a drink at the beach bar (for men).
In addition, there are plenty of half-day activities to choose from, for example, batik, yoga or cooking classes. Also, don’t forget to try Balinese food and have a nice seafood dinner at the beach in Jimbaran.
Visit a local market and discover many tropical fruits and vegetables, then try cooking some exotic food in your private villa. But, of course, no holiday will be complete without exploring the beauty of Bali.
The three pillars of the Balinese philosophy (harmony among people, with nature and with God) are called Tri Hita Karana and influence the daily life of every Balinese.
Bali is a perfect destination for unforgettable holidays with family. But, did you know that every year in March, Balinese people celebrate Nyepi, the day of silence? Nyepi is the first day of the new year, and during this day everyone, including tourist, have to stay at home or in a hotel for 24 hours.
The only person allowed to be outside is pecalang – a community leader who makes sure that no one goes out. The day before Nyepi is Balinese new year’s eve, and people all around the island are organizing the ogoh-ogoh parade. Ogoh-ogoh, which symbolizes evil spirits, are burned during the night so all the demons will leave Bali.
Your private guide will take you for tours around the island and show you the most iconic scenery like sunset at Tanah Lot temple and Jatiluwih Rice. You will learn more about Balinese culture and the way of living.
That’s why Bali has to look inhabited on the first day of the new year so evil spirits won’t come back. Organizing your holidays in Bali is not difficult.
Just book a flight for chosen dates and a place to stay; there’re plenty of options.
If you choose to have a private guide, he will pick you up from the airport, take you for the tours around Bali, and help you book other activities and suggest the best places to eat, shop, etc. Bali is well developed as a tourist destination, and the service is very professional and hassle-free.
There’s no need for any vaccination before visiting Bali, and there’s no risk of malaria; however, purchasing general travel insurance is wise.
You can visit Bali all year round as the weather is always lovely, but it’s better to avoid December as it will be raining almost every day. Also, the end of December is a peak season, and hotel prices go higher for Christmas and New Year.
Bali can offer something for the traveler with any budget. For example, you can have nice lunch in a local place for 2$ or eat at an inexpensive international restaurant. Tours around Bali and visiting temples won’t cost you much, but activities like rafting will be more expensive. However, everything is provided, including transportation, equipment and lunch.
