Holiday In Bali
Things to Do in Bali
Before we start putting together this itinerary, you might be thinking, “Hold up. Where is Bali anyway?” Located east of Java Island, Bali is one of the most popular Indonesian provinces, and for good reason. We’re not just talking about the fresh mango cocktails either. Pull up your bathers, grab snorkelling gear and take a dive at Blue Lagoon near Padang Bai on the southeast coast. The calm currents and colourful coral reef make it easy to forget that Blue Lagoon is neither blue nor a lagoon #semantics. If you prefer to kick it with other primates, enjoy some people-watching and bar-hopping on Legian Street in Kuta, or make new friends at the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary in Ubud. If you have time for just one temple visit, trek out to Tanah Lot on the west coast of North Kuta. There’s a golf club nearby too, since nothing goes together like Hindu simplicity and argyle socks. If you’re wondering how to get around from coast to coast, then check out our awesome Bali car hire options. Forget the title of that classic Bob Hope flick—there are actually three main roads to Bali, and you can cruise down all of them.
Shopping, Dining and Nightlife
If you want to know what shopping till you drop really feels like, stay up late and go on a night market crawl, starting in Gianyar and tasting your way through Kereneng Night Market in East Denpasar and on to the Kuta’s many bazaars. With all this swag, you’ll be glad you scored some sweet Bali holiday deals with lastminute.com.au.
When your stomach growls, go coastal, where you can chow down on savoury vegan fare or traditional pit-roasted pigs. In the larger southern cities, you’ll find plenty of fine dining. If you have a bet about spending an entire holiday in togs and bikinis, you’re going to have to fork over the cash before dipping your spoon, but the smorgasbord of coconut milk-smothered veggies and roasted meats is worth sprucing up for.
The nightlife in Bali gets a little rowdy. If you wanna swing around poles with the party animals, head to Kuta, where the beats are strong and the drinks are stronger. For hipper, low-key vibes, consider Seminyak. Shenanigans don’t come standard with Bali packages, but they might as well, if you know what we mean.
We were hoping you’d ask. It’s time to book Bali holiday packages with lastminute.com.au, that’s what. You’ll find disgustingly good deals on airfares and accommodation, so you can take off to Bali or broaden your scope and book multi-island holidays to Indonesia.
