5 PLACES YOU MUST VISIT IN BALI
Dreaming of crystal clear water, tropical bliss and having a jungle of a time? If that’s the case then read on.. because you’re heading to Bali and here we are giving you the ins and outs of the best destinations you cannot miss while you’re out there! First up..
If learning about Indonesia's culture is what you're after, there’s no messing around, Canggu is the place for you! Did you know that it’s home to two of the most famous temples in the country? We’re talking about the Royal Temple of Taman Ayun and Tanah Lot, which is actually only accessible by boat or by foot at a very low tide. Not only that, but here you’ll find yourself in what's best described as the ‘surfers paradise’ of Indonesia! From beginners to pros, there's waves for everyone. So spend your days riding those waves and your nights at one of our absolute favourites, Finns beach club ready to dance the night away with a Bintang or two in hand. Surfs up, you’re going to Caggu!
Where do we even start? Whether you want to chill, party or a mixture of both, the Gili islands are the place to go. There's not one, not two but three tiny little islands that will all provide you with different experiences you definitely do not want to miss on your next trip to Bali. First up we have the party island of Gili T where you’ll spend your days snorkelling, cycling around and catching the sun go down at the epic sunset swings before hitting the strip right on the beach. Sounds like a pretty epic way to spend the day right?
Next up, we have Gili Meno, the smallest of the three, that's best known for its beautiful beaches and sensational scuba diving spots. You can spend your time here relaxing, without a care in the world and visiting the Sea Turtle Sanctuary where you’ll learn all about the importance of these beautiful animals.
Last but definitely not least, we have Gili Air, where (we’ve said it already, and we’ll say it again) exploring the underwater world of the island is a MUST! You know those underwater sculptures that you’ve probably seen hundreds of times on instagram? Well, this is where you’ll find them! Taking part in a local cooking class to learn how to make Indonesia’s national dish Nasi Goreng is also an experience you will definitely want to try!
Enough monkeying around for now! It’s time to explore the Insanely beautiful Indonesian Jungle that is Ubud. Full of temples, terrace rice paddies, waterfalls, the tastiest smoothie bowls and of course, lots and lots of monkeys, this is the perfect place to wind down and let it all hang out. Start your trip nice and early to head out on a Mount Batur sunrise trek that will leave you lost for words. Continue by visiting the famous Tegenungan Waterfall that offers beautiful scenic views and swing straight into the next insta famous location in Jalan Raya Ceking where you’ll undoubtly enjoy rice paddy views from high above.. You see what we did there?
It doesn’t end here. You can’t miss a day trip to the famous sacred Monkey Forest where things get a little cheeky to say the least.. Spend your time feeding monkeys all day long and enjoy watching them hang out in their natural habitat but remember not to keep food in your bags because monkey business is REAL out there!
Grab your GoPro because you're heading to Nusa where things can get a little bit wild.. If swimming with enormous manta rays, Mola-Mola sunfish and dolphins is on your bucket list then Mangrove point is where your dreams will come true! And whilst you’re there, you may as well tick off yet another sensational spot which is Nusa Penida. Trust us.. You won’t want to miss this one out!
