Where else should I go in Bali?
« on: February 04, 2013, 06:55:52 PM »
Hi all. I'm new to the forum. Hopefully someone might have some suggestions for me.

I'm travelling to Borneo and Bali in June this year. We plan to spend a few days in Borneo, then on to Ubud for about a week. Then we'd like to explore somewhere else in Bali - perhaps somewhere coastal. Are there any places that are not overly commercial and crowded (like the south/Kuta area)?

I've read about Lovina Beach up north, and Padangbai on the east coast. They sound inviting. Where else should we consider for a laid-back coastal town that is friendly, has a few restaurants, maybe some local craft and beautiful scenery? We are not after nightlife or rowdy bars. We're looking to rest and relax!

Thank you

Susie

I think sanur is a nice area to relax too, spent a couple of nights there and it was relatively quiet but with a nice mix of activity going on at the same time .

Bali is not only great topsite destination. In fact bali is home to the world class diving destination. If you are not into scuba diving - snorkeling is another excelent activity.
These sites is typically not crowded and limited night live - not all has white sand beach, but underawter is different story.
We travel to Bali practically every year - mostly to enjoy the underwater beauty.
Nusa Lembongan is only 30 minutes fast fery from Sanur. A lovely hideaway, nice beach and best dive sites 5 - 30 minutes away by boat.
Amed, small vilage 2.5 hours from Sanur is another lovely place to relax. Not far to the most popular dive destination in Bali - Tulamben.

Don't miss the Dolphin Tours at Lovina during the sunrise.

The early tourist catches the worm (= best experiences)!  :P

Check out Bali Reptile Rescue, a mini NGO. If you are interested in wildlife, I recommend joining the night tour they offer - to see snakes in the wild.

If you're not set on staying on Bali, you could spend a few days on one of the nearby Gili islands? We spent a week on Gili Meno and loved it! Photos here! http://www.worldlynomads.com/index.php/castaway-on-gili-meno-island-indonesia/

Hi :)

I have done a few posts on wanting to travel by myself to Thailand in the summer 2013, got some great info on that. But I have come across Indonesia: Bali  and I really like the sounds of it so far. I will only be able to travel for 2 weeks due to working commitments and I think I'd be able to get a real feel for the place as it is a small island. I am considering this as a destination and I'd like to know why you like it so much and hopefuly why Id think it was a great destination.

One reason why I want to visit Thailand is becuase I love the english version of Thai food, and I would love to taste the real thing.Go to http://www.tourhq.com/indonesia-tours-guide to know more about Indonesia.

I think you should visit Ubud as it has rich cultural heritage, also the weather is really awesome there. Not as hot as in Seminyak.

I stayed in this villa -> http://indahindonesia.com/villa-bayad/ and it is quite amazing because I can withness the nature of Ubud and even experience sunrise. :)

Totally recommended for you.
