1.Day 1 (Seminyak and Canggu)
Now just about everyone coming to Bali is flying internationally so you’re probably feeling a little bit jet-lagged. So the key is going to be to take the first day or two pretty easy.
I recommend spending the first night or two in either Seminyak or Canggu but Canggu is definitely my personal favorite.
However, to get to Canggu or Seminyak is going to cost you about RS.1000-1200.
If your flight is early enough I recommend spending the first night catching a beautiful Bali sunset. Grab yourself dinner and get to bed early because tomorrow is going to be a full day.
2.DAY 2 (Seminyak and Canggu)
A lot of hotels will come with a complimentary breakfast. But in my opinion, breakfast is one of the things that Bali does best. Take your pick of the countless restaurants and get yourself an AVO and toast eggs Benny or whatever you’re feeling.
You’re likely not going to be feeling fully energized after what was a long flight. So day two is also going to be about chilling and hanging out by the surf.
If this is your first time ever surfing or you consider yourself a beginner Brava Beach is a really good place to learn. But if you’re more towards the advanced level you’ll want to head towards Echo Beach grab lunch hang out by the pool and for sunset, I’ll give you a couple of options.
As per Bali Itinerary either hit up Tanah Lot which is this beautiful oceanfront temple. But for sunset, there are always crowds or if you’re like me and rather take it easy you can check out one of my favorite Beach bars right here is La Brisa.
Canggu and Seminyak are known for their nightlife and together they have something going on every night of the week. If you’re in Changu then check out Oldman’s and if you’re in Seminyak a really cool spot for a late-night is Lalibela this is just scratching the surface of the nightlife scene.
3.Day 3 (Uluwatu)
As per Bali Itinerary grab your breakfast and get started bright and early so that you can avoid the crazy traffic and let’s head down to Uluwatu. Uluwatu is without a doubt the beach capital of mainland Bali.
Blue water incredible surf and jagged cliff sides and it’s one of the top choices for real surfers who are coming to Bali.
Take your pick of the incredible beaches and just hang out for the day. Even if you’re not a surfer this is definitely a worthy stop but if you’re not the type to just sit by the beach all day this is a great plan B and that is heading to a day club.
My favorite day club on the island is without a doubt Omnia it’s basically a massive Vegas-style beach club sitting up on top of a cliff it’s beautiful. For sunset, you can either stay at the day club or my personal favorite Korang Boma.
This beautiful cliffside is a sudden drop going down to the ocean it’s not just a beautiful photo it’s an incredible place to watch the sunset. However, if you’re looking for a crazy night out one of the biggest parties in Bali happens every Sunday at Single Fin.
Hundreds of people come down to this bar located on the side of a cliff. It can be a really fun night.
4.Day 4 (Ubud – Central Bali)
firstly if you can handle it, get up bright and early, grab a quick breakfast and head up to central Bali if you do not leave early you’re going to be spending twice or even maybe three times longer. Traffic gets really bad.
Secondly once in Ubud check into your hotel for the next two nights. One of the best things about the region is how lush and green it is. And with that, there are countless rice terraces and one of the main reasons to come to Bali are countless beautiful waterfalls all over the central and north of Bali and these are some of my favorites.
Each of these waterfalls is completely different from the last and I definitely recommend seeing as many of them as you can.
Our next stop is to the Monkey Forest home to a thousand plus monkeys that are running around jumping on people. You’re supposed to avoid eye-contact but every now and then you can give it a try.
After chasing waterfalls, hanging with monkeys as per Bali Itinerary you’re probably feeling a little bit tired. So head back to your hotel room get all cleaned off to take a little bit of a break and just before sunset head to Campuhan Ridge, where you have this beautiful walkway and it’s one of the best viewpoints for the sunset in Ubud.
Set your alarms tomorrow morning we’re getting up way too early
5.Day 5 (Ubud – Central Bali)
We gotta get up before the Sun does, make your way to Tegalalang rice fields. One of the most beautiful places to catch the start of the day and if you don’t start your day here other travelers will cover this entire rice terrace.
lining up for swing sets taking photos and the magic of the region is completely lost so far we haven’t had much Balinese culture on this itinerary but a really great spot that’s close to the rice field is Tirta Empul.
Bali is primarily a Hindu Island and this is one of the places that the Balinese come to purify themselves. And one of the beautiful things is they’re more than willing to share their culture and their religion with you come and experience a water purification for yourself.
Naturally, some of you will decide to grab breakfast but if you can hold off your hunger this is one of Instagram’s favorite spots to Tukad Cepung.
which is a waterfall where a certain time in the morning the light rays start to come through and you get this beautiful lighting that makes for an incredible photo or video.
By now it’s probably only mid-morning but you feel like it’s been almost a full day because of that early start. So head back to your hotel maybe take a nap definitely hang out by the pool and get ready because we’re going to need to be talking about a 2-hour drive to get to a place by the name of Jatiluwih and this is actually a UNESCO Heritage Site.
It’s a place where you can see Balinese people still working the rice fields as they have for countless years and it’s an absolutely incredible place that will be catching sunset finish up with a dinner in Ubud and call it a day.
The big difference between a driver and a tour guide is the tour guide actually gets out of their car, shows you around, and helps you experience the places you visit.
6.Day 6 (Ulun Danu – North Bali)
On day number six as per Bali Itinerary, we’re going to head up north to go to Ulun Danu. Ulun Danu is this beautiful waterfront temple where if you get up nice and early you can catch a beautiful sunrise.
However the next stop is just for a quick photo at the Handara Gate. In reality, this is the entrance to a golf course so there’s nothing culturally significant about it. But it definitely has a way of getting some likes if you don’t get here early there will be a line.
After our quick stop let’s carry on all the way to Sekumpul Waterfall. Because it’s a massive set of waterfalls you kind of need to have a guide you can hire a local guide and they’ll give you a pretty good experience.
There are some of the most incredible spots in Sekumpul Waterfall. From incredible Rock Slide a place to do a bit of cliff jumping and a perspective of the waterfall that I had never seen before this is by far my favorite day trip in Bali.
We can head back to Ubud but we’re going to end our day in a region by the name of Sidemen.
7.Day 7 (Sidemen- Eastern Bali)
Sidemen located in the eastern region of Bali. Sidemen is incredibly laid-back you still see the local culture preserved.
People working the rice fields locals wearing the traditional clothing it’s a must experience. Especially if you’re travelling as a couple a few really awesome activities that you can do on day 7 are going to be visiting samsara living if you want to get a fully Balinese cultural experience.
Hit up the river rafting which is actually so fun and one of the best ways to view the beauty of Bali. And one of my personal favourites making some jewellery with Agung Silver.
However, it’s such a cool experience to be able to craft your own silver jewelry and take home the memory of Bali with you. And your day with a relaxed and laid-back sunset by the pool wherever you’re staying probably overlooking a rice terrace.
however, no matter where you go on the island it’s 100% safe and the biggest smiling faces always meet you.
8.Day 8 (Sidemen- Eastern Bali)
It is day eight and as per Bali Itinerary, it’s been a full week of fast-paced travel trust me you might not think this right now but you’re going to want to take a day off.
You’re going to want to relax and that is why I’ve chosen to put you in Sidemen. Choose your hotel well and you’ll have somewhere you can comfortably hang out all day whether you have a private pool a communal pool just make sure you have a view of that beautiful rice terrace.
9.Day 9 (Gili Trawangan)
We’re going to check out of our hotel and take a minivan to Padangbai. This is where the ferries lead from to go to the Gili islands so we’re going to go to Gili Trawangan.
Which is the main of the Gili islands it’s the largest it’s the party island but it also has some incredibly relaxing spots to it. so by no means are you forced to go out check into your hotel or guest house stroll around the island by bicycle.
Because there are no cars on this island. Only horses and bikes and then from there go and do some snorkeling.
The entire island is surrounded by beautiful perfect blue water and on most days the visibility is incredible. For sunset you’ll see many of these beachfront bars serving drinks but I really love hanging out by the swing set makes for a good photo and some video and it has some half-decent drinks being sold nearby.
Have your dinner at the Gili local market. And lastly, it wouldn’t be a full visit to Gili t without a proper night out so go and enjoy some live music and probably a very late night.
10.Day 10 (Gili Meno and Gili Air)
As per Bali itinerary is going to be an island-hopping day pretty chill. You can start off your day whenever you feel like it but most of the boat trips will take you to Gili Meno and Gili Air the other two Gilley’s and these are some of the really cool snorkel spots they’ll take you to.
11.Day 11 (Nusa Lembongan)
Check out of your hotel take a fast boat to Nusa Lembongan. Check into your hotel and rent a bike for the next couple of days take your bike around the island and go and explore there are so many things to see from dream Beach Sandy Bay mushroom Bay and you have to catch the sunset at Devil’s tier.
12.Day 12 (Nusa Ceningan)
On day 12 as per Bali Itinerary if you haven’t already you can head over across the yellow bridge to Nusa Ceningan. Which is basically the twin-island from there you’ve got the Blue Lagoon cliff jump you’ve got sunset at Mahana Point and so many other cool things to do.
Like all literary should we’ve saved one of the best things for last for
13.Day 13 (Nusa Penida)
On day 13 as per Bali Itinerary we’re going to get on a local boat and head to Nusa Penida. Which is no more than 30 minutes away we’re going to check into a hotel and again rent a bike for the next couple of days start off your trip by exploring the east side such as Angels Billabong, Broken Beach, Kelinking and if the Sun hasn’t totally burnt you yet go for sunset at Crystal Bay.
14.Day 14 (Atuh and Diamond Bay)
Finally, let’s not waste our last chance at a beautiful sunrise in Bali. Wake up bright and early and head to the Molenteng Treehouse on the Atuh and Diamond Bay beach cliff side you could easily spend two to three hours here in the morning or more.
If you decided to walk all the way down Diamond Beach. But one thing to keep in mind is if you’re going to make it back to Bali you don’t want to miss the last boat which as I last checked is around 4:30 p.m.
I should also mention that there are certain points on the island where you can snorkel and dive with manta rays. And I definitely would suggest that if you have time.
Finally, That’s it from our side. Guys that is how you travel to Bali. However, you can make changes in this Bali itinerary according to your choice, budget, and duration of travel. But all that you should cover is mentioned here hope you will find it handy and sooner you will be posting your awesome clicks on Instagram.
