Our Flashpacker style is for those who want to experience our bucket list activities, but with a little more comfort and style. We've included all the best bits of our Classic tours but with higher standards of accommodation, transport and activities. Done the hostel vibe? Then this is your natural progression. It still has the epic backpacker vibe, but a bit more boujee. We like to call it ballin’ on a budget. From backpacker to Flashpacker.
You made it! Prepare yourself for the next 10 days of pure Bali Bliss! Fly into Denpasar Airport, we’ll meet you there and take you to our hotel in Seminyak. Check-in any time from 2pm to our stunning hotel and have the afternoon to spend as you please. Chill by the pool, explore Seminyak’s beautiful beaches and cafes or hit up some of Asia’s best beach clubs for a mojito or two. Whatever you fancy, it’s the start of an unforgettable 10 days, so enjoy every minute. In the evening we meet up and get to know your new TruFam who we’ll be spending the next 10 days with! Start as strangers, leave as TruFamily.. And so it begins! We head out for a welcome dinner and see where the night takes us..
Wake up you’re in paradise, no really you are. The hotel is stunning, the views? Beautiful, the company? Couldn’t be better. This morning we’re heading off to the famous Uluwatu cliff temple to learn about traditional Balinese culture before heading to one of the most Instagram worthy spots for lunch. Strike a pose, snap those pics and you’re in for at least 100 likes or so. You’re welcome. After lunch, we head for afternoon cocktails. Located 50,000ft on a clifftop you’ll most certainly have your head in the clouds, maybe it’s the back to back cocktails or the high altitude. Who knows. We arrive back to the hotel around late afternoon to chill out, grab a shower before heading out for a group dinner.. Did someone say more cocktails?
This morning we bid farewell to our tropical dream, Seminyak, it’s an early check out as we head to Ubud. We’re doing Bali big, like big big. So, of course, we have to visit the iconic rice terraces on the way, if you’ve ever researched Bali you would have seen layers of emerald green, pristine rice terraces in the background of every photo so of course, it’s an Instagram must visit. We travel in style to Ubud so sit back, relax, play a game of Uno or eye spy on the way. The afternoon is free to explore Ubud, visit the world-famous monkey forest, explore the local markets or even grab a stress-reducing massage! Ubud is a small zen kinda town with good vibes and unbelievable food. Grab an early night as in the morning, we’re climbing a volcano for sunrise! Yeah, we’re coming in HOT!
Rise and shine, It’s an early one, grab a large coffee, and we’re on our way. You may not be a professional mountain climber or volcano hiking pro, but sunrise at the top of Mount Batur is like no other. It’s around 2 hours to the top where we’ll stop and watch the golden orange sunrise break through the clouds. In the words of Leonardo Dicaprio in Titanic - I’m on top of the world! How can we make this epic moment any better? Well, a glass of prosecco wouldn’t go a miss! We’re popping bottles at the top as we raise a glass to celebrate our climb! An absolute bucket list ticking experience, afterwards we head back down to our stunning hotel and arrive around 10 am. Have some free time to catch some zzz’s in the afternoon before we have a well-deserved massage.
Today we take the Bali experience to the next level. What do we love in the world more than travelling? FOOD! For all you foodies today will be a dream. Yeah, that’s right we’re taking you to the local cooking school where we’re dicing, slicing and cooking up a storm as we learn to master traditional Balinese cuisine. Gordon Ramsey eat your heart out. Delicious. In the evening we’re heading OUT OUT to see traditional Balinese Kecak fire dancing, so loosen those hips, bring your dancing shoes and see where the night takes you!
Next stop Nusa Lembongan! Never heard of it? Well, we’re about to blow your flip flops off! Nusa Lembongan is a part of 3 small Islands off Bali’s coast with blue ocean views and golden sandy beaches, so some might say Nusa Lembongan is bliss and well, we’d have to agree. We leave the hotel early and catch the ferry over to our next destination. Take some time to chill in the hotel before we try our hand at stand up paddleboarding, we don’t do average, so we’re paddleboarding through the mangroves! An unforgettable experience, let your troubles melt away as you immerse yourself in rich greenery and calming waters. Views on views. In the evening we catch the golden-orange sunset before enjoying a group dinner at one of Nusa Lembongan’s best restaurants.
Today we’re jumping on our very own private boat, yep, we fancy. We’re island hopping around the Nusa’s. We’re snorkelling the crystal clear waters. Grab that GoPro because this is an experience you don’t want to miss. Swimming with gentle majestic manta rays. These friendly giants can reach a wingspan of up to 29 foot, wild right? Well yeah, it is pretty wild. Although big in size, they’re harmless and swimming amongst them in their natural habitat is up there with bucket list experiences. Go Manta Rays! We spend our day swimming in the crystal clear waters under the glorious sun. Perfection. We head to Nusa Penida and Kelingking Beach Viewpoint, home to undoubtedly one of the best viewpoints in all of Asia. Look out at shimmering blue oceans, luscious distant greenery and the white sandy beaches below. If you’re looking for places to caption on insta ‘ All you need is a change of scenery or another day in paradise’ well you’re in the right place. We head back and have some time to chill and explore Nusa Lembongan some more before grabbing cocktails and a group dinner.
We heard seawater cures any and all hangovers? Right? Well, today we’re riding some waves! We’re having our very own surf lesson just off Lembongan! Shakas up, time to ride some gnarly waves. Well, unless you're the Tony Hawk of the seas, you may not be riding the waves, but if you can stand up for more than 2 seconds, well, that’s pretty impressive. After a morning of living our best surfer life we will chill by the pool and recover and reflect on our new surfing super powers!
Goodbye Nusa we’re heading back to Seminyak, where our wanderlusting story began. We catch the ferry back to Bali where we have the afternoon to do as we please. Hey, you’re practically a local now, so hit up the beach clubs, check out the markets for a snazzy shirt or watch the world go by on the beach. Whatever you fancy, it’s our last full day, so it’s only right we go big. We meet up in the evening for a farewell dinner, hey we’re not crying you are. One last night to paint the town red, well not literally but we may order a few too many espresso martinis with dinner.. Whoops. The evening is ours for the taking.. So whatever you fancy doing, your travel ninja is on hand to go with the flow.
Today we part ways, au revoir, adios. But although all good things must come to an end, you’re a part of the TruFam now which means the memories will last forever. Have a chilled checkout and relax before we hug and sob uncontrollably in sadness at the end of our tour. If you’re travelling on further, your Travel Ninja is on hand for any help you may need. It’s been an unbeatable 10 days. Bring it in TruFam.
