The island is also known for relaxation and with such friendly locals, you will find that nature is not the only thing that will give you a warm welcome. The island is steeped in culture too, with a long history, and lots of fascinating religious artifacts and buildings to look at.
Here are a few things that you really should check out when you take your trip to Bali.
You cannot take a trip to Bali and not sample as much Balinese food as you can. Indonesian meals are similar in many ways to Chinese and Indian cuisines while keeping a unique charm of its own. Mozaic Bali is the best fine dining restaurant and is worth a visit.
Why go to Bali and not spend as much time as possible on its idyllic beaches? Kuta is very popular with holidaymakers, as is Nusa Dua. If you want something that little bit more secluded, you could go off the beaten track. There are plenty of smaller, harder to reach beaches that offer a private paradise to those that can venture out to them.
The Religious Temples
Bali is an island with predominantly a Hindu population and there are many beautiful temples. Some are built right on the edge of the sea. Speak with some of the locals and get to know and understand their beliefs and traditions. Often, Balinese people have small temples in their own homes that they prey on daily.
A Little bit off the beaten track, this amazing waterfall takes forty minutes to get to the bottom of. Once you are down there, you will get the most stunning view. A rainbow forms at the foot and it will take your breath away.
Watch the Sunrise in Munduk
You will never have seen a sunrise like the one that you will see in the Munduk region of Bali. Situated in the north, the area gets a lot more fog and rain than elsewhere, but in all, it adds to a magical view.
Visit the Monkeys in Ubud
Take a trip up to the forest in the middle of Ubud and you will find monkeys running free. They are generally friendly and don’t mind people walking on by them.
Take a Sporting Adventure
With lots of great experiences that you may only get the chance to enjoy once in your lifetime, why not try surfing, or even go abseiling down the sides of the waterfalls. There are plenty of opportunities for diving, and seeing the amazingly beautiful nature that lives on the bottom of Bali’s seabed.
