You must have gone through the first half of the top places to visit in Bali. Well, if those had you excited for the place, be ready for the rest of them. These places are guaranteed to bring out the traveler in you.
The Kuta beach is without doubt the most popular beach in Bali. And what that means is that you can be sure that you will find some life and party scene at this famous beach. If you are looking out to socialize and party, and basically have a good time, you can always head out to Kuta beach. Ranging from the Hard Rock Café, to a number of local neighborhood cafes and pubs, you will definitely find the party that suits your needs as well as your budget.
Nusa Dua Beach
The Nusa Dua Beach is more for people who are looking to spend a little more. With a bit more of a budget to spare, you can splurge at the Nusa Dua Beach, which is dotted with some higher end hotels. Private and pristine beaches are available (especially a good idea for honeymooners) where you can soak up the sea and the sun at your own leisure.
Far away (not too much) lies Kintamani, up in a highland in the East of Bali, and at Kintamani, you can find the beautiful Mount Batur caldera. This summit is about 1700 meters above sea level and is an amazing experience for active travelers. Wait! Did we mention that this is an active volcano as well? The hike to the summit is a relatively easy hike and the paths to follow for the trek are well marked. For enthusiasts, a good time to begin is around as early as 4 am in order to reach the top by 6 am, just in time for the sunrise. From the peak of the mountain, you can also see superb views in all the directions that are more than enough to take your breath away.
Ayana Bar on the Rocks
We’ve told you about the temples that perch on cliffs in Bali; now it is time that you have a couple of drinks at a bar that is perched on top of yet another cliff. Ayana in Bali is possibly one of the best bars in the area, so much so that almost every day it has a long line of people waiting to get inside to enjoy a few drinks as well as the surprisingly good food that the bar offers. While you relax at the bar, you are treated with a spectacular view of the sea crashing on the rocks below. The sea forms an amazing show of nature while you chill, relax and maybe even dance a little atop a cliff.
The Coffee Plantation
Whether you are a coffee lover or not, you cannot miss out on a trip to the coffee plantation at Bali Pulina Agro Tourism; where you can sit back overlooking the coffee plantation as you are served with various kinds of coffees and teas for tasting. See the process of making the famous Kopi Luwak, or meet the civet cats, while you enjoy the completely zen feeling of the plantation.
And there you have it. Ten new reasons to visit the amazing Bali and these are just a few of the highlights of the place. Be sure you come with an open heart and see how the islands make themselves a part of you.
