Pack your bags, book your tickets and follow this itinerary to make the most of your 4-day Bali trip.
First thing first – you might have a hard time finding English speaking locals in Bali. A tour guide or a travel agent might come in handy to solve this problem. Post the hotel check in, you can head to the Uluwatu Temple which is better known as rock cliff temple. The sunset at the backdrop of the majestic Indian Ocean makes for an unparalleled setting. The Kecak dance performance next to the temple must be next on your agenda. This would be followed by a visit to the Jimbaran beach where some of the most scrumptious seafood is on offer at the beach itself.
The day would begin with a Barong Dance performance which is an indispensable part of the local culture. You can then head towards the Celuk village to witness local gold and silver art. The next place on the itinerary would be Kintamani village which gives a splendid view of the active Mount Batur volcano and Lake Batur. Before ending the day and returning to the hotel, you can also pay a visit to the Ubud monkey forest to witness thousands of playful monkeys.
You can dedicate this day to water sports. Tanjung Benoa beach is a great spot for indulging in water sports of different kinds. Once you have satiated your hunger for water sports, you can head to the Tamam Ayun temple and enjoy its breathtaking surroundings. Next on the agenda would be the Tanah Lot Temple which is famous for a spectacular scene of the sunset and Indian Ocean. With this sunset, you can end your Day 3, unless you wish to indulge in some club hopping in which case you can go back to the hotel, dress up and soak in the nightlife of Bali.
Day 4 would begin with a visit to the Dreamland beach which is as beautiful a beach as you would ever come across. If you wish to spend some time here, you can take an umbrella from the umbrella vendors roaming around. Rest of the day can be spent at the Kuta beach and strolling around the Kuta shops which offer loads of local stuff.
Many of these places and performances would have entry charges which must be included in the overall budget to avoid any last minute crunch. Should you want to plan an Indonesian holiday right according to your taste and budget, just click here. So just go on, live Bali!
