FLY BALI HELI - ENJOYING BALI FROM ABOVE | Finally, after the long-awaited two years full of uncertainty, fears, and a lot of emotions during the pandemic, although we are still in the fight, I decided to fly to Bali and I said to myself  "Surprise me".

For this trip, I spent more than a month in Bali, still, the charm of Bali excites me like the very first time, even though the travel industry has been hitting and struggling so hard, the buds of tourism life begin to squirm, in some area the business open as usual, people come to the beach every day, brunch every weekend in a newly open restaurant, and I thought let's try something new, and more adventurous this time.

I checked my bucket list, and went on a road trip chasing waterfalls, but how do I make this trip more than nature, cocktails, and beach clubs, more memorable? and then "Helicopter Tour In Bali" come to my mind, and I was wondering, what it feels like to fly a helicopter in Bali and see a view of some of the iconic landmarks of Bali a little closer from above.

I decided to fly with @flybaliheli, with its stunning black helicopter (Robinson R66 turbine helicopter), and the helipad is in Sawangan, Nusa Dua and the flight is one of my trip highlights, so amazing from the first time you arrived at the base, follow their instructions (mostly for safety) to the when the chopper is taking off, flying, and landing, your adrenaline will excite you along with the flight.

I choose the morning schedule around 10 AM to be on the location, because I already had a plan for the afternoon, and of course took a lot of photos. It was quite a queue that morning, so you make sure you can take photos while you are not interrupting other passengers' schedules. We signed the document for insurance and watched safety instructions for what Do's & Don'ts for about 5 minutes, but I think the flight is so smooth and utmost safety, which makes you excited and pump your adrenaline because it's the small plane you can feel the movement of flying for about 10 seconds and the view are amazing, watching it by your own eyes, especially in the front seat next to the captain, it was so amazing. You can take photos or video, but see the view like that in real-time, I can't really describe it because I was also speechless, although it was 12 minutes helicopter ride, still and all I was enjoying the ride and views so much.

For 12 minutes, the captain took us around the south coast of Bali, the #Uluwatu area. The captain was friendly enough to chat with us and not only explain about the views and the beach, but also how he operates the chopper, he also mentioned all the luxury resorts we passed by, the warm chat, and the breathtaking views that make 12-minutes gone just like that (30-minutes with maneuver? maybe you should try)

The flight is also fun with friends, this helicopter by Fly Bali Heli can accommodate 1-4 passengers or up to 370 kg with luggage. So I invited my friends to join me, or if you are a couple it will be a nice romantic gesture to take your other half on a helicopter tour ride in Bali.

You can choose the tour starts from 12- minutes to enjoy the "Taste of Bali" flying through the GWK statue (Garuda Wisnu Kencana), Uluwatu Temple, Nyang-Nyang Beach, Melasti Beach to even 70-Minutes "Volcanoes & Temples" above Bukit Peninsula Mount Batur, Kintamani Lake, Jatiluwih Rice Fields and Tanah Lot Temple. For more information about the tour packages and prices, you can check their website

A pleasant experience you should try with your friends, family and even as a couple who wants to enjoy the side of Bali in a different way as you usually do and believe me, to see the view and experience it by yourself is nothing like you see on photos even in a video, it will be a completely a different impression.
