How to Make the Most of Your Visit to Bali
If you can imagine it, you can probably do it if you plan a visit to Bali on vacation. Do you prefer to relax? If so, there are a variety of resorts found throughout Bali that will be more than happy to have you as their guest. More than likely these resorts will reside on an exotic beach, have a fantastic view, and provide a variety of dining options. If you’re more interested in adventure, Bali offers terrific temples, a safari park, and many other opportunities to get lost in this luxurious location.
While visiting Bali, you need to make a stop by Gili T. While you may not have an extended length of time to visit, a trip over to this island is worth it. No motorized vehicles are permitted on the island, and you’re sure to find Gili T. to be one of, if not the best place you know to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Gili T. is a great place to watch for dolphins, and the bright blue waters make them easy to spot. Take a tour on a bike around the beach, enjoy the incredible food and marketplace, or spend an afternoon fishing with the locals. This island is a must-do on anyone’s visit to Bali.
Bali is an amazing to spot to snorkel or scuba dive as it provides clear blue water and amazing underwater marine life. It’s the ideal place for a novice to begin learning to scuba dive, as it offers a safe atmosphere with diverse aquatic animals. Be careful though, because once you start exploring, you may find hours passing by without realizing it!
It wasn’t so long ago that Jimbaran was a peaceful and quiet village primarily known for fishing and a simple shoreline. This is no longer the case as one of the first sights guests are greeted with is the Four Seasons Resort at Jimbaran Bay. Because of this, Jimbaran is now considered a destination spot for luxury and comfort.
In addition to the amazing resorts and shops now residing in Jimbaran, visitors will enjoy the incredible seafood along the beach. This is the perfect spot for a romantic dinner as you watch the sunset with your significant other, but keep in mind that this area is not known for being cheap.
Traveling nearly halfway around the world should be exotic and exciting. The Elephant Safari Park in Bali will provide just that, as guests can get up close with elephants and see them how they so rarely can be seen. Located just south of Ubud, the Elephant Safari Park doesn’t let guests see elephants in their natural habitat, but it does include a trail which the elephants follow for rides, a museum for gifts, and a quaint restaurant. This magnificent park is home to around thirty Sumatran elephants.
Tanah Lot Temple
Guests who see this temple for the first time can hardly believe their eyes. The unusual architecture of this incredible religious building is situated atop a massive jagged rock, which rises from the pristine waters of the southern coast of Bali. Unfortunately, guests must wait until low tide to make the trek to the temple.
Those that have visited say it’s worth the wait, suggesting that the best photo opportunities come at sunset. Guests may also see vendors nearby selling their wares, which could include anything from souvenirs to food or drinks. Keep in mind, however, that the temple is a tourist attraction, and that it can get crowded.
This fantastic temple boasts incredible architecture alongside its cliffside location. The waves crashing nearly two hundred feet below only adds to this dramatic religious edifice. Unfortunately, like its counterpart, the Uluwatu Temple is heavily visited by tourists…and monkeys. Travelers are warned to be wary of the monkeys, as they have been known to snatch anything that isn’t held down, like glasses, purses, and hats.
Last, but not least, on this list, is Waterbom, a must-do for those traveling with their children. This waterpark offers heart-stopping rides and slides of all varieties scattered throughout. Guests can also relax on the lazy river if the mood strikes. The great thing about Waterbom is that it is great for guests of all ages since it includes a great mixture of water features and slides.
As you can see, there is an excellent variety of opportunity for fun, excitement, and relaxation when visiting Bali. This tourist location offers a little bit of everything for everyone. Whether you’re traveling on a budget or expecting to relax in luxury, your expectations can and will be met in this exotic land. Snorkel with the marine life, take in a romantic sunset and explore elaborate temples, all while visiting Bali.
