Exploring historical sites, temples, dolphin spotting or enjoying a traditional spa treatment –there are so many activities to enjoy when you are in Bali. This magical island has been a traveller’s favourite for long. But with the incredible choice of activities and attractions, it’s easy to get confused. So, before you book any international holiday packages to Bali take a look at this list of must-do activities there:
1. Soak in the tranquillity at Tirta Empul Temple
Bali is known as the Island of the Gods. And while you will find many temples with jaw-dropping architecture, Tirta Empul Temple is a place with unmatched serenity. This place attracts both Balinese and Hindu visitors. It has a large rectangular pool in the centre of the temple complex. The water is said to come from a holy mountain spring. You’ll find people taking a dip. If you plan to do so, don’t forget to bring an extra set of dry clothes.
2. Explore Gunung Kawi
Gunung Kawi is the largest ancient monuments in Bali. It has 10 candi or shrines that stand in sheltered niches in the cliff. As you walk through the terraced rice fields to reach this place, the beautiful landscape will leave you mesmerised. As you explore the fountains, temples, monuments, and streams in Gunung Kawi, you can feel an ancient majesty in its air. Be ready for long climbs and walks if you visit this place. Wear a sarong as this is a holy site.
3. Visit the Sacred Monkey Forest
This dense patch of the jungle has three holy temples and is inhabited by hundreds of long-tailed macaques. You can enter the sanctuary through any of the three gates. All along the way, the monkeys will be watching over you in the hope to get occasional banana treats. Avoid eye contact or showing you teeth (that includes even smiling!) as these are signs of aggression.
4. A scenic stopover at Mount Batur
Mount Batur or Kintamani Volcano offers a captivating view of the lush green landscape. Nestled in the Mount Batur, the Batur Caldera Lake is a popular tourist attraction. However, if you love adventure, you can take the nearby winding road down to the hot springs.
5. Explore the breathtaking rice terrace
Jatiluwih rice terrace in West Bali is famous for its breathtaking scenery and the cascading hillside topography adorned with green rice fields. Explore the nearby Mount Batukaru to and treat yourself with the soothing serenity, away from the crowded cityscape of Bali.
6. Admire handcrafted Balinese goods
The Ubud Art market is a popular destination for finding the finest handcrafted Balinese goods. From beautiful silk scarves, woven bags, statues to shirts and other handcrafted goods, Ubud Art Market is the place to pick up souvenirs before your return.
