BALI

Bali

Known as the ‘Land of the Gods’, Bali is undeniably beautiful. For a small tropical island, Bali has an amazing ability to provide something for everyone. Each region is so unique which makes it impossible to describe Bali as one destination. Take the time to visit chilled out Canggu, shop in stylish Seminyak or escape to Sanur. Aside from the main attraction of beaches, cruise the water to nearby islands or head inland to the fertile grassy plains, terraced rice paddies, striking lakes and vast volcanic mountains. Dotted throughout the land are historical, cultural and spiritual monuments with some of the most breath-taking natural scenery. Food is available at every turn, there are a myriad of activities on offer and accommodation to suit any traveller. You will be enthralled with every step.



SOME THINGS TO SEE AND DO IN BALI



Dining DINING

There is an overwhelming choice of restaurants on all levels, making Bali a real dining destination. Warehouses have been transformed to modern day establishments, local Warungs serve traditional Balinese food and tea houses are great for that in-between. From cheap and cheerful, authentic Indonesian to fine dining and modern fusion, the choices are endless. Culinary diversity is the dish of the day here, so parents needn’t fret about the fussiest of eaters – western favourites are as commonplace as mee goreng.

Pura Tanah Lot TEMPLE VISIT
 

There are literally thousands of temples across Bali. Small devotional shrines are scattered through rice fields and often in hotel grounds. Some of the larger and more impressive temples, which are well worth visiting include Besakih (the mother temple situated in Eastern Bali), Uluwatu (perched high on a cliff on the southern coastline) and Tanah Lot (the impressive shore temple).

Rock Bar BEACH BARS
 

Nothing is better than watching the sun go down with an evening drink in hand. With an array of trendy beach bars in the upmarket Seminyak precinct, KU DE TA, Potato Head Beach Club or Finns Beach Club are great options and the most well-known.  Option B is to head to the sand and grab yourself a beanbag at one of the many bars that are part of the evening atmosphere.  Feet in the sand, music playing and cold beverage in hand is the best way to finish the day. 

Luxury Spa SPA TREATMENTS
 
You will be amazed at the incredible number of spas available in Bali.  Streets are dotted with them, and being so cheap, it would be rude not to dedicate some time to a daily treatment.  Most hotels also have at least massage facilities, if not an established spa complex with many treatment rooms.
Balinese Cooking Class COOKING CLASSES
 

What better way to take back memories of Bali, than to learn how to cook some of the exotic dishes that make Bali famous. Many hotels offer a cooking class and there are also a number of respected cooking schools operating regular programmes, teaching a range of Indonesian dishes.

Banana boat in Bali WATER FUN

A multitude of activities are on offer involving water.  Dive in the warm ocean and see a marine environment quite different to home.  Surf the beaches or just paddle in the waves.  Enjoy a boat cruise to the islands, and hold on tight on a banana boat ride.  Check out the water parks and speed down water slides or just relax in a lazy river and float around.  White water rafting is also an option – ride rapids and finish off with a great buffet!
