Your Ultimate Guide to Having the Best Holiday In Bali




Are you planning to explore Asia for your next holiday? We totally recommend you consider taking a trip to Bali. Also known as the “island of the Gods”, this beautiful country with its mouth-watering cuisine, diversity and lovely weather will surely hold a special place in your heart. It has something in store for all kinds of people, be it quaint coastlines, yoga retreats or crazy parties. No wonder tourist from all over the world flock to Bali all around the year. While it is a favourite with honeymooners, it is also equally possible for backpackers and tourists on a budget to have a fabulous time in Bali.

When is the best time to visit Bali?
This is one of the best things about this country. Due to its beautiful weather, you can visit it any time all round the year. Temperatures remain at a constant almost all round the year. It rains from December-March. Most of this rain falls in the afternoons, which leaves your mornings and evenings free to explore outdoors. We also recommend witnessing the beauty of the lush greenery during the monsoon. Overall, whether you choose to visit Bali during its dry season or the monsoon- you will surely be amazed by its beauty.

What to do in Bali?
To begin with, hit up the Sanur beach. This beautiful and long beach has beautiful places to swim, restaurants, and hotels. You can take your pick of places to stay in or just keep exploring. Don’t forget to hit up the Sanur Night Market!
If you have travel insurance and an International Driver’s License, we recommend renting a moto and exploring nearby beaches. It will not only save you the hassle of public transport but is also a fun way of seeing places.
If you want to have a laidback and chill holiday, head to Uluwatu without a doubt. The coastline is amazing, the parties are wild, the food is delicious, and the sunsets are unbelievably gorgeous. What more could you ask for?
After you are done with the beaches and parties, we recommend you head to Ubud to see a different side of Bali. This region is blessed with lush green landscapes, rice terraces and yoga studios, which makes it perfect for a zen holiday. Ubud has many options for cheap accommodations, so travellers with all kinds of budgets can soak in this experience. The vibrant night markets here make it a shoppers’ paradise.

What is the best way to get around in Bali?
While we recommend renting a moto for an adventurous and fun way to explore Bali, in case you want a more comfortable mode of conveyance, take an Uber. Uber is really cheap here. Another interesting thing you could do here is to hire a private driver. It will cost you around $40 U.S.D and is a great way to explore Bali if you can split the cost with your friends. The drivers are all super friendly, and will take you to wood-cutting, temples, shopping, waterfalls, and wherever else you’d want to go. 

Where to stay in Bali?
There are plenty of accommodation options in Bali for you to choose from, depending on your budget. If you don’t mind splurging a bit, private villas are the best places to stay in Bali as they are usually very well maintained, comfortable and well serviced. They usually include a shared pool and a beautiful garden. Or you could book a villa in the middle of a forest and enjoy the greenery. All these options are great value for money. If you are on a budget, there are a plenty of budget hotels and backpacker hostels to choose from.
With plenty of delicious local food like Satay (grilled meat skewers), Betutu (stuffed duck or chicken), Nasi Ayam (fried rice), Urab –(mixed vegetables) and the famous fried noodles Nasi Goreng to choose from, you can be assured of a great gastronomic journey in Bali without a pocket pinch!
So, what are you waiting for? Get packing and live the Bali life!
