If you are someone who enjoys adventure activities, then you will not be disappointed with your trip. Expect a full range of water activities, muck and wreck diving, and a chance to fly through the jungle canopy like Tarzan.

Whatever you wish to do, you will probably find it in Bali. You could spend a month in Bali and still only experience a fraction of the sites. The most difficult part about a trip to Bali is deciding where to go first and what to see.

Surfing in Kuta

Locals and travellers alike gather to watch the sunset, and you may relax on the sand with a refreshing drink while taking in the view.

See some traditional healer

Visiting a traditional healer is one of the reasons why many people choose to visit Bali.

The pricing is reasonable for daily, weekly, and monthly rentals. Simply make sure to wear your helmet and do not try it unless you have ridden a scooter before.

Balinese Massages

Yoga with a view

Hike to the top of Mount Batur

A hike up Mount Batur is something that is highly recommended, not just because of the banana sandwiches you get at the top.

yogThe hike is a couple of hours long and not too difficult, meaning that almost any person could do it. However, It comes with a 3am start to catch the sunrise, but that is all part of the adventure.
