You are dreaming to visit Indonesia and you want to know all the best places to visit in Bali? Read on!
Top 5 places to visit in Bali
Ubud is one of the most authentic places in Bali. You can really feel the presence of the Balinese culture there. Meeting the locals and spending time with them is amazing. I have learned to cook a Balinese meal and it was an amazing moment! You can also learn more about their culture and visit Temples. Also, there are beautiful places to visit: Tegalalang rice terraces, the monkey forest, Campuhan ridge walk, and beautiful waterfalls as Leke Leke (that you can see on the photo at the right) or Tibumana.
2. Nusa Penida
Nusa Penida is a small island near Bali. You can get there with a speed boat only 45 minutes for around 30$. This island is a gem! There are dreamy beaches, cliffs, and points of view! My very favorites ones are Kelingking beach, Diamond beach and this treehouse with an insane view! I would love to stay there one day. This simple wood house has no electricity or water but it has the best view! And you, would you stay there? Read our full Nusa Penida travel guide!
Munduk is a beautiful place located in the north of the island. It is way less touristy and the landscapes are to die for! If you make it to Munduk, you need to visit Munduk waterfall (on the photo). This waterfall is absolutely incredible. Also, we stayed at Munduk Moding plantation and we had a wonderful stay. This small boutique hotel has so much charm.
4. The Gili islands
Next, let’s talk about the beautiful Gili islands! Yes, this really look like the Maldives! The Gili islands are not belonging to Bali but to Lombok. It is an island near Bali. There are three islands: Gili Air, Gili Meno and, Gili Trawangan. I have visited Gili Meno which is incredible and not so touristy. I have done an amazing diving with turtles there. Also, I have been to Gili T, which is more touristy but it is really fun: more hotels, more restaurants, bars etc. The Gili you will choose to visit is depending on what you are looking for! Read our post about which Gili island is the best for you?
5. Seminyak & Canggu
Concerning Seminyak and Canggu, it is part of Bali that is totally different from the previous ones. These places are located in the southwest of the island. There are more places to surf, enjoy the beach and hang out to the restaurant or bars. But it definitely is a cool place to stay in Bali, especially with friends!
