Bali Holiday Packages
Things to Do in Bali
You could spend your whole getaway sipping mango martinis and working on your tan, but if you’ve killed enough brain cells for one holiday (or lifetime), there are tonnes of other things to do here. Make an evening pilgrimage to Tanah Lot in South Bali. This centuries-old temple to the sea gods is built into the rock, giving it a castle-like appearance. It’s also rumoured to be guarded by sea snakes, but don’t worry—the only true danger is missing the sunset due to excessive selfie- taking.
Adventurers should make their home in Ubud, in south central Bali. It’s the perfect base to explore the jungles and mountains of this diverse island. Discover hidden waterfalls and brightly coloured kingfishers as you raft down the Ayung River—you can even go for a swim! If you want to see even more, book a Bali car hire and take a trip to Mount Batur, the island’s only active volcano. Make the drive early and hike up at daybreak to see Bali’s storied sunrise from the best vantage point on the island.
Shopping, Dining & Nightlife
Bali holidays are the perfect opportunity to indulge your inner shopaholic. You’ll find tons of vibrant craft markets in Ubud, known as an artists’ haven. If you’re more fashionista than bargain hunter, head to Nusa Dua in the south, home of the best upscale shopping. This is also where you’ll find 5-star dining, so bring your fancy pants (or buy new ones!). Got low-maintenance tastes for fashion and food? With Bali deals in secluded Candidasa, on the west coast, you can shop at beachfront huts, then eat like a local at family-owned warungs. Channel your inner Anthony Bourdain and fill up on sup kepala ikan (fish head soup), or play it safe with spicy fried rice.
Candidasa is great for those seeking a laid-back retreat, but if you want nightlife, there’s only one place to go: Kuta. Along with the surrounding towns of Legian and Seminyak on the southern peninsula, this is where you go for strong drinks and DJs spinning ’til dawn. Seminyak holidays are somewhat quieter, but still bumping with oceanfront lounges, day clubs and gorgeous beaches. You can dance until sunrise, then sleep on the beach—but be sure to check out our Bali packages and book a hotel anyway, at least for changing your outfit.
