Things to do
Whatever scene you’re looking for, you’ll find it in Bali. Party all night in Kuta and Seminyak, relax alongside temples and nature in Ubud or indulge at five-star resorts in Jimbaran. For a day of peaceful reflection, wander through the lush green rice paddies of Jatiluwih or take a walk along the palm tree-lined beach of Lovina dotted with traditional outrigger canoes.
More than just its beachside resorts and pampering spa treatments, Bali is covered in fascinating culture, religious sites and otherworldly landscapes. An immersion into Balinese culture wouldn’t be complete without visiting at least one of the ancient temples found around the island, such as Uluwatu Temple and Pura Besakih. For a postcard-perfect photo of Bali, visit Pura Tanah Lot at sunset and glimpse this unique wonder perched on a rocky islet.
Water-based activities, such as snorkelling and diving, are always rewarding in Bali, where colourful reefs offer an adventurous day of exploring unique marine life. Try white-water rafting along the Ayung River, catch a wave in the surf town of Canggu, or reach new heights at the active volcano Mount Batur, where you’re spoiled for choice with beautiful landscapes.
End your days dining on a variety of traditional fares such as chopped coconut with pork or duck stuffed with spices, or head to a market for fresh, local seafood and gourmet eateries along the coast. For a perfect escape from the traditional tourist areas, start your day with a sunrise dolphin-watching cruise or watch the famous surf breaks on nearby Nusa Lembongan.
The best way to get around Bali is via a hired car and driver. With its chaotic traffic and affordable taxi prices, visitors can have the freedom of roaming the country without the stress of navigating its streets themselves. Scooter rentals are also available, in addition to bicycles, for traversing shorter distances.
