How to visit Bali ?

To get to Bali, you will need to fly into Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS), also known as Denpasar International Airport. It is well connected to major cities around the world, with direct and connecting flights available from various airlines. Once you arrive at the airport, you can hire a taxi or arrange for a private car or shuttle service to take you to your accommodation.

It is highly recommended that you book some activities and attractions in advance, especially if you plan to visit during the high season (June-September). Popular activities to book ahead include guided tours, cooking classes, and tickets to cultural events or performances. Additionally, if you want to climb Mount Batur, secure a guide in advance to ensure a smooth experience.

The costs of traveling in Bali can vary greatly, depending on your preferences and budget. In general, Bali is an affordable destination, offering a range of accommodation, dining, and activity options to suit different budgets. Meals can range from $1 to $20, while accommodations can range from $10 to over $100 per night. Expect to pay around $50 to $100 for guided tours and activities, depending on the duration and inclusions.

Some of the best things to do in Bali include visiting the iconic temples such as Uluwatu, Tanah Lot, and Ulun Danu Beratan, exploring the cultural hub of Ubud, relaxing on the beaches of Seminyak and Kuta, and trying out water sports in Nusa Dua. For a more immersive experience, join a cooking class to learn how to prepare authentic Balinese cuisine or take part in a traditional dance workshop.

When it comes to dining in Bali, there are countless options to choose from. For an authentic Indonesian meal, head to Warung Babi Guling Ibu Oka in Ubud, known for its delicious suckling pig dish. Another great option is Made's Warung, which offers a variety of Indonesian and international dishes in a relaxed setting. For something more upscale, try Mozaic, which serves a fusion of French and Balinese cuisine in a beautiful garden setting.

Accommodation options in Bali are varied and cater to all budgets. For a luxurious stay, consider booking a villa at the Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan or the Viceroy Bali, both located in Ubud. For more budget-friendly options, try the Puri Garden Hostel & Hotel in Ubud or the Dash Hotel Seminyak, both offering comfortable rooms and a range of amenities.

Off the beaten path: For a unique and unusual travel experience in Bali, consider visiting the abandoned Taman Festival theme park in Sanur. This eerie, overgrown park was once set to be a major tourist attraction but was never completed due to financial problems. Now, it has become an offbeat destination for urban explorers and photographers keen to capture the haunting beauty of the decaying structures and encroaching jungle. Remember to exercise caution and respect when exploring this area, as it is not an officially sanctioned tourist site.

Bali, the Island of Gods and Pearl of Indonesia is the country top destination.

The Island of Gods, better known as Bali, is an Indonesian island located between Java and Lombok. Separated from these two by the Bali Strait to the west and the Lombok Strait to the east, its total area is 5,637 km2. Bali is the most popular and well-known tourist destination in Indonesia.

Denpasar, the largest city on the island, administers the province and has a population of over 3.8 million.
The most important cities are Kuta and Ubud. The latter is the main cultural and artistic center of Bali.

The island is divided into several regions: Bali Utara (West), Barat (North), Tengah (Central), Selatan (South), and Timur (East). In addition, three small islands in the southeast of Bali are under its administration: Nusa Penida, Nusa Lembongan, and Nusa Ceningan.

The Balinese are mostly Hindu, but there are also Muslim and Protestant communities on the island. Although they speak Bahasa Indonesia, the Indonesian national language, the population also has its own Balinese dialect which has its origins in Austronesian languages.

The inhabitants live mainly from tourism and agriculture. They grow rice, fruits, vegetables, and coffee. Fishing is also an important resource for them.

Bali, between ocean, mountains, and rice fields. The beautiful landscapes of Bali are known throughout the world: rice fields, mountains, white-sand beaches, and turquoise waters. They are very diverse and interesting to discover each other. The highest mountain of the island is Mount Agung, which rises to 3,142 meters. The island is thus famous for its volcanic activity and its high mountainous plateaus.

There are many animal species on the Island of the Gods, the most famous of which are the Bali starling and the crab-eating macaque. Many national parks are accessible to visitors such as West Bali, located in the west of the island.

The Balinese culture is one of the richest of the Indonesian archipelago. Punctuated by traditions and religious ceremonies, music, dance, and handicrafts are the centerpieces of life on the island.

Visiting the temples gives a good idea of the importance that the Balinese give to spirituality and their beliefs. In addition to all these discoveries, there are many activities: scuba diving, snorkeling, surfing, hiking and trekking, volcano climbing, shows...

It is recommended to go inland to immerse yourself more easily in the Balinese culture, and thus avoid the influx of people on the most touristy sites of the island.
