BALI, Known for its buzzing nightlife, iconic rice paddies, good food & amazing surf breaks.
A guide below of some of my top things to do, places to eat/drink, how to get around and also a list of things I plan to do on future trips with posts to follow!
TOP THINGS TO DO IN BALI
Now, lets limit this down a bit – Bali is one of my favourite holiday destinations so I rate everything very highly. I will elaborate on my top 10, and then list as many other “things to do” as I can.
Ubud Monkey Forest
Ubud Monkey Forest is one of Ubud’s most popular attractions! A Natural Forest that is home to a loads of wild Macaques.
IDR 50,000 Entry per adult
Buy bananas if you’re brave, but be prepared to be jumped on if you do.
Visit a Coffee Plantation
Tanah Lot Temple –
Bali Dolphins – You can no longer do this as the rescue dolphins have now been released back into the ocean.
Elephant Safari Park
Visit the Rice Terraces in Ubud
Goa Gajah Elephant Cave
Goa Gajah an archaeological site of significant historical value that makes it a special place to visit.
IDR 15000 per person entry cost, and they will provide you with a Sarong on arrival.
Pura Tirta Empul
Pura Tirta Empul is built around a bubbling spring, an interesting place to observe Hindu devotees purifying themselves by means of ritual bathing.One of the most beautiful places of worship for spiritual cleansing with the Holy Water.
IDR 30,000 entry fee, and Sarongs are provided if you don’t have your own.
Located in Ubud, this is a relatively new experience that anyone who has seen my Instagram is just bound to want to do!
Now in saying that, its not cheap… But 110% worth it.
IDR 25,000 entry – this covers Entry Fee & a drink when you arrive.
IDR 260,000 for the Swing… You can swing as many times as you like.
Rp 10,000 entry
The falls are located halfway between Ubud and Denpasar – making this a perfect first stop on our day exploring.
The area on the way down toward the falls is lined with art and souvenir shops, together with small local ‘warung’ stalls selling snacks and cold drinks. We stopped and brought fans after the walk back up the stairs as we were all so sweaty!
Getting down to the falls is only accessible via descending stairs…and quite a lot of them.
But totally worth it – The water volume is impressive at almost any time of year.
And if you are prepared, take your bikini and a towel to cool off in the plunge pool beneath the falls for some insta worthy snaps!And since you had to go down the stairs to get to the falls, this can only mean one thing – the way back up is gruelling in the heat of the day.

Enjoy the Street Food!
I cannot rate “WAYAN BALI TOURS” high enough.
You need to message him on Facebook, but trust me – he is the best !
He is extremely professional, and will go out of his way to make your trip amazing.
He even got me a slot in at the Dolphins when we were told it was fully booked!
I will always choose to use Wayan when I require a driver for any excursions or Airport Transfers etc in Bali now.
