Bali, in Indonesia, has emerged as one of the hottest destinations in the world. It is a proverbial melting pot, with some of the most amazing attractions and surprises up its sleeves.
Here is a look at the top 10 things to do in Bali:
1. Surfing and Diving
Bali is the king of surfing spots. It is also home to some of the most enticing diving spots in the world. If surfing isn’t your regular cup of tea, you can even learn (and master) this art at Kuta. For snorkeling, Menjangan Island is really good.
2. Get on Top of Mount Batur
Mount Batur, with its humble height and friendly climb, doesn’t tax you or put you under any risk while you try climbing it. But the view its summit offers is simply stunning (make it super stunning). Climbing this volcanic mountain is amongst the most exciting Bali activities for adventure-lovers.
3. Drop by at the Jemeluk Fishing Hamlet
Jemeluk is a sleepy little town whose poetic beauty and rustic appeal will tug at your heart. You are strongly advised to visit this village for the spread of natural beauty all around.
4. Check out the Tirta Gangga Water Palace
This attraction features amongst the top Bali attractions. It is religious in tone but the wet lush ambience studded with fountains and statues win your heart.
5. Loosen up at a Spa
When it comes to rejuvenation and relaxation, the Balinese have definitely got it right! From 5-star spa luxury to shady massage parlours, you’ll find the whole line up here. We suggest you pick a place that would make you feel comfortable. Couples Spa options are also available.
6. Soak in the Nightlife
Bali has a holier-than-thou reputation for Bali’s daring nightlife. Places like Kuta and Seminyak are full of pubs where you can party, dance, wine, dine and check out the hot girls and boys with your perverted eyes. *wink*
7. Beach-masti and Dinner at Jimbaran Bay
Jimbaran Bay is laden with some great beachside restaurants. After having your share of fun with the sea, you can dine at one of these restaurants. Having ‘masti’ at the beach and following it up with dinner is amongst the most delicious things to do in Bali. It can be exhilarating to feast with both your mouth and your eyes (if you know what we mean).
8. Admiring the Tanah Lot
Tanah Lot is a temple which is situated right at the nose of the sea. Its desolation, its heritage value, its religious intonation and its electrical atmosphere makes it a must-visit attraction. The sunset is also very good from the beach. To be frank, there is nothing more romantic and pacifying than to simply say nothing, do nothing but watch the sunset from one of the Bali beaches. It is said also one of the most satisfying things to do in Bali for honeymoon.
9. Watch a Barong or Kecak Dance Performance
Barong, Bali’s famous traditional masked dance, is a sight to behold. Involving a lot of masks, costumes and mythical elements, it is an impactful dance form and leaves the viewer spellbound. Another spectacular dance form is the Kecak dance. Catch this enactment of the Ramayana at the Ulu Wutu Temple.
10. Ubud, the Monkey Forest
Visit Ubud and check out what the hype and hoopla surrounding the Monkey Forest is. Once you are done with it, dig into hiking, cycling and exploring the woods, the shops and the culture.
Sure, Bali will live up to your expectations. If it doesn’t, you can always watch a Ram Gopal Varma horror film and curse him to pieces.
