Bali is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world and it’s with good reason! The island is full of interesting sites and locations, some being well worth a trip down here all on their own – here are some of the best places to visit during your visit to Bali.
If you’re on holiday with kids, you should definitely consider visiting this waterpark in Kuta. Waterborn Bali is full of thrilling rides and attractions that’ll make for a great daytime excursion. As the kids play, parents can unwind with a relaxing pedicure or massage at the park’s spa. Getting to the park it relatively easy too if you’re on vacation as most Seminyak luxury 2 bedroom hotel suites such as the Katamama Suites at Desa Potato Head are less than an hours’ drive from it.
The Sacred Monkey Forest
Ubud’s monkey forest is on a lot of travellers’ Bali bucket list – and with good reason! Few experiences can match the wonder and excitement of being able to witness the wily antics of the resident monkey troops. Three 14th century Hindu temples can be found inside the forest as well, often with dozens of monkeys clambering up and down their walls.
Located in the northern Singaraja region of the island, Sekumpul Waterfall – which is actually a series of seven waterfalls – is one of the most stunning and picturesque examples of Bali’s natural beauty. The trek up to the waterfall can be strenuous but should prove to be a worthy challenge for outdoorsy types, and you can always recharge by taking a refreshing bath at the base of the fall once you’ve completed the trek.
The Nusa Islands
If you’re in the mood for a relaxing vacation away from all the crowds and traffic, the quiet retreat of the Nusa Islands is where you want to go. Located about 20km off the coast of Bali, the Nusa Islands’ pristine beaches and azure blue waters make for the perfect island getaway. Enjoy activities like snorkelling, kayaking, and scuba-diving amidst bouts of birdwatching and cave exploring.
