Starting from its amazing landscapes to its mystic heritage.
A trip to the island of Bali in Indonesia is the best replenishment you could provide your mind and body. All the features of a naturally beautiful landscape- from volcanoes to oceans- are present here, awaiting the appreciation of enthusiastic travellers. The scenic beauty of the place also makes it a popular holiday destination for new couples on their honeymoon.
When you’re in Bali, here are some of the best things that you can see and do:
1. All the natural attractions
A short ride from Gili-Trawangan-Lombok-to-Padang-bai-Bali will take you the most wondrous attractions in Bali. The landscapes- both terrestrial and marine- draw a lot of attention from visitors. While the beaches are perfect for relaxing, the centre of the island has a mountainous region that can be explored on foot or cars and bikes.
2. Get the authentic Balinese experience
At the heart of Bali lies Ubud, the centre of the Balinese culture. Here, you will find Balinese dances, Balinese food, and a chance to visit all its temples and sanctuaries. Mention must be made of the Monkey Forest Sanctuary. You could also take a walk around the city to the terraced rice fields, another attractive feature on the island.
3. Balinese cuisine
Bali does have a lot of restaurants serving all sorts of international food. But if you’re in Bali, it would be blasphemous to not try the delicious Balinese cuisine. Balinese cuisine uses a lot of meats and fresh vegetables, with most dishes being served with a side of hot chillies.
4. Experience the rocking nightlife of Bali
Most of Bali is quiet after dark, but it’s impossible to rule out the iconic clubs that come alive in Kuta, in the southern parts of Bali. The nightclubs of Bali are replete with merrymakers, with some even spilling over into the streets. If you are not that fond of loud music, you can visit one of the many well-stocked bars in the area to enjoy a quiet drink with your friends, or yourself.
5. Witness the creativity of the Balinese
There are a lot of unique things about Balinese art. Wood carvings and sandstone art from Bali is well known all over the world, and the religiosity that goes into the making of each piece of work is worth looking out for. You can even watch the artists at work and purchase it too at many of the small workshops around town.
6. The Tanah Lot Temple
One of the most iconic landmarks of Bali, the Tanah Lot Temple is located on a hilltop amidst waves that are constantly crashing on its shore. Although you will not be able to enter the temple, just watching the temple and the waves from afar can be the experience of a lifetime.
There are plenty of things to love about Bali. Starting from its amazing landscapes to its mystic heritage. Most importantly, a visit to Bali can rejuvenate your mind and spirit like nothing else.
