No matter whether you are interested in the history and culture of Indonesia or want to just indulge in diving and surfing, Bali is the place to be. We know that planning your first trip to Bali can be confusing, which is why we have listed down the things you must see and do.
Head to the temples
Hindu temples in Bali are extremely popular and should be on your must-see list. The temple in Besakih is the most popular. Tanah Lot is the most iconic and visited temple of the island, located on the top of a rock and surrounded by sea. Expectedly, watching the sunset here is a thing you wouldn’t want to miss. Talk of the sea temples, and you have Uluwatu, which is located in Bukit peninsula – a great place for sunsets. Make sure that you are appropriately dressed for temples. People in Bali are extremely proud of their culture and religion.
Enjoy the resorts and hotels
The luxury romantic design hotels in Bali offer something for every budget. The resorts here are particularly amazing, with bunch of facilities that are extremely desirable and yet pocket-friendly. Some of the resorts are designed for honeymooners and families, with assured privacy. If you are tired doing other things, enjoying at the hotel by the infinity pool isn’t a bad idea. The good thing is most hotels accept advance bookings.
Have fun with surfing and diving
Regardless of how much you know about surfing, you can enjoy and learn in Bali like nowhere else. Uluwatu has some nice beaches, or you can also head to Canggu, where the best surfers show their tricks. Instructors are usually available on the beach and learning surfing doesn’t have to be expensive. The same is true for diving. You can get packages in most places, but if you need assistance, just check with the hotel.
Check for massages and yoga
Bali is one of the best places in the world to learn and practice yoga. If you need the best choices, head to either Ubud or Seminyak. Balinese massage is famed across the globe, and it’s quite relaxing, with long strokes like the Swedish massage and mix of essential oils.
We also recommend scuba diving in Nusa Penida. Ubud River Rafting is also a good activity worth enjoying here. Plan things in advance, so that you can make the most of the time.
