Are you wanderlust? Are you planning to visit the magnificent Bali? Then you have landed on the right page.
Regardless of the travel destination you choose, your trip will not be a memorable one if you don’t garner new experiences; be it from tasting new delicacies to getting familiar with different traditions and cultures.
Here we present a tailor-made list of things you should definitely do in Bali.
1. Kintamani Volcano and Mount Batur
Relax, we are not talking about a live volcano here. Kintamani volcano (colloquially Mount Batur) is one of the most popular sightseeing spots in the central highlands of Bali. You can enjoy splendid view of the Mount Batur range and Batur Caldera Lake.
Those passionate about adventures can even hit the winding road and visit places like Ulun Danu Batur temple and Toya Bungkah and even the hot springs.
2. Kecak Dance
For making the most out of your trip to Bali, witnessing the traditional Kecak dance unfolding the story of Ramayana is a great cultural experience that you can get. Kecak dance is always performed in the backdrop of the sunset and keeps you captivated throughout the evening until you have a lovely dinner by the ocean.
3. Ubud Monkey Forest
As the name suggests, Ubud Monkey Forest is inhabited by monkeys and involves cultural and spiritual aspects as well. You can take a brisk walk in the peaceful nutmeg forest along paved pathways and you’ll come across guardian statues and ancient temples in between the journey.
You can take the help of the staff and local guides to explore the forest. Also, enjoy a unique shopping experience through the Ubud Art market.
4. Balinese Cooking Class
Don’t just devour Indonesian delicacies in Bali, learn to cook them too! Most cooking classes are arranged by hotels and the learners are required to visit the local market with the chefs. With a proper guidance, you can learn to make mouth-watering Balinese dishes like Satay (grilled meat) and Nasi Goreng (mixed rice).
5. Bali Safari and Marine Park
Bali’s biggest animal theme park, Bali Safari & Marine Park is home to more than 60 different species. The enclosures are designed to mimic a natural habitat closely and therefore the animals roam around freely. You can take a tour around the place via safari bus and watch elephant talent shows.
If you are lucky enough, then you can even catch a glimpse of African hippos, lions, blue wildebeests, baboons, ostriches, camel, zebras, Himalayan bears and even spotted deer.
6. Goa Gajah
Wouldn’t you want to visit an ‘elephant cave’ that dates back to the 11th century? Well, the name (Goa Gajah – elephant cave) is slight misleading as it an archaeological site but of great historical value. While in here, you can explore awe-inspiring bathing fountains/pools, central meditational cave, and rock-wall carvings.
