This is our Bali itinerary for the traveler who wants to unpack only once. Seeing what’s possible on Bali during a series of relaxed day trips. Your Bali itinerary must start with a beachside hotel in Sanur or Kuta area. Both of which have a refined yet relaxed charm.
Bali itinerary, day trip one starts with the short drive to the markets and museums of Denpasar, followed by a visit to the shops of Seminyak. It’s also the center of life for hordes of the island’s ex-pats, many of whom own boutiques or design clothes, surf, or seem to do nothing at all. Home to dozens of restaurants and clubs and a wealth of creative shops and galleries. All those restaurants and clubs combine to give travelers the greatest choice of style and budget in Bali.
Sure there are exclusive boutiques, but there are also workshops where everything is wholesale. And when it all becomes too much, just head to a quiet corner of the beach and chill. Finish up with a sunset seafood grill at Jimbaran. Located just south of Kuta and the airport, Jimbaran Bay is an alluring crescent of white-sand beach and blue sea. Fronted by a long string of seafood warung and ending at the southern end in a bushy headland. Jimbaran remains a relaxed alternative to Kuta and Seminyak to the north (and you can’t beat the airport access!). Its markets are fun to visit and even with some new resorts appearing it should still be a good escape.
Day trip two starts heading to Ubud for a half-day strolling the streets. Looking at the shops, galleries, and museums. Ubud, a town in central Bali, is far removed from the bikini scene in Kuta and is regarded as the cultural center of Bali. It is famous as an arts and crafts hub, and much of the town and nearby villages seem to consist of artists’ workshops and galleries. There are some remarkable architectural and other sights to be found, and a general feeling of well being to be enjoyed, all thanks to the spirit, surroundings, and climate of the place.
Central Ubud has few main streets, but the famous one is at the intersection of Jl Raya and Jl Monkey Forest are Ubud Market, Ubud Palace. Jl Monkey Forest, which runs south through town to the Monkey Forest. Ubud’s popularity continues to grow. Tour buses with day-trippers can choke the main streets and cause traffic chaos. Being the top city in Asia and add to the hoopla from bestselling novel Eat, Pray, and Love. Above all, there’s nothing like a walk through the verdant rice fields to make all right with the world. So don’t forget to buy something from here.
Day trip three follows the wave-tossed beaches along Uluwatu. Uluwatu has become the generic name for the southwestern tip of the Bukit Peninsula. It includes the much-revered temple and the fabled namesake surf breaks. About 2km north of the temple there is a dramatic cliff, which has steps that lead to the legendary Uluwatu surf breaks. All manner of cafes and surf shops spill down the nearly sheer face to the water below. In conclusion, views are stellar and it is quite the scene. Pura Luhur Ulu Watu is perch precipitously on the southwestern tip of the peninsula. A top sheer cliff that drops straight into the ceaseless surf.
Bali’s mythological menagerie crafted on the walls of coral bricks. Only Hindu worshippers can enter the small inner temple that is built onto the jutting tip of land. However, the views of the endless swells of the Indian Ocean from the cliffs are almost spiritual. Be please to visit the dream-land beach on the way back to your hotel. It is one famous beach that provides basic accommodation and cafes for surfers and day-trippers. Known as the most beautiful beaches on the island but it is also renowned for its dangerous shore break. With the high wave, make this place is favorite for the surfers and do sunbathe. At sunset time you should walk around the beach to lose some of the crowd and take a picture and it will be a sweet holiday in your life.
