Ize Seminyak Hotel Bali, Indonesia- September 2017 Summary
From Wikipedia; “Bali is an island and province of Indonesia. The province includes the island of Bali and a few smaller neighbouring islands, notably Nusa Penida, Nusa Lembongan, and Nusa Ceningan. It is located at the westernmost end of the Lesser Sunda Islands, between Java to the west and Lombok to the east. Its capital, Denpasar, is located in the southern part of the island.
With a population of 3,890,757 in the 2010 census, and 4,225,000 as of January 2014, the island is home to most of Indonesia’s Hindu minority.
Bali is a popular tourist destination, which has seen a significant rise in tourists since the 1980s. Tourism-related business makes up 80% of its economy. It is renowned for its highly developed arts, including traditional and modern dance, sculpture, painting, leather, metalworking, and music. The Indonesian International Film Festival is held every year in Bali. In March 2017, TripAdvisor named the island the world’s top destination in its Traveler’s choice award.”
Though every country has its own specialties you must definitely try before you hit the bucket, did you know that you can actually find dozens of unique attractions just in Bali alone?
Yes, and this hinges on Bali’s fascinating culture, and a penchant for harboring some of the strangest things in the world.
VISIT THE BEACHES
Bali’s beaches are world famous and cater to almost everyone. The white and black sands that line each beach are as iconic to Bali as the waves that crash into them. Each beach in Bali has its own perks, and tourists of all varieties can find one to fall in love with.
Surfers travel from all over the world to Bali in order to get in on the action and challenge their skills. For die-hard surfers, Balangan Beach’s waters can get so rough that non-surfers are often warned to stay near the shore. Also, the nearby cliffs offer a breathtaking view to boot.
Adventurous travelers will be happy to learn that there are plenty of hidden beaches waiting to be discovered. Both Karma Beach and Nyang Nyang require hefty hikes through rough terrain, but the end result is worth the effort. Both beaches are largely isolated and left unattended throughout the year, so it’s almost like having your own private beach once you arrive.
The more romantic will love beaches such as Jimbaran and Karma Beach, where restaurants serve sunset dinners on the sand and under the stars. Also, Padang Padang Beach may prove to be a good luck charm, as it’s widely known as the beach where Julia Roberts’ character falls in love in the Eat, Pray, Love movie.
BIKE AROUND THE RICE FIELDS
In Ubud you can find an abundance of tour companies offering bike trips around the island. The typical tour is a 40 km mostly downhill bike trip that includes breakfast at the top of a mountain, a visit to a coffee farm and a traditional Balinese village on the way down. You’ll stop at a restaurant before heading back, but this meal is not included in the tour price.
TAKE A STROLL THROUGH TEGALALANG RICE FIELDS
Bali’s most charming feature is without doubt its rice paddies. If you stay in Ubud, you will have easy access to a walk through the terraced fields. The most popular ones are Tegalalang and Jatiluwih which are in the same area. On the latter, the vast expanses of green rice paddies are stepped along an entire mountain, from its peak to where its foot meets the sea. Plus Jatiluwih Rice Terraces is a UNESCO site. It’s truly stunning.
EXPLORE BALINESE TEMPLES
Bali is enriched with temples. The island has over 20,000 in total and although it’s not necessary to visit them all, a handful of them are definitely worth a visit, especially Taman Ayun which is a UNESCO site. Some temples can be seen within a single trip while others may need a little more advance planning.
INDULGE IN THE HEALTHY FOOD OF UBUD
Ubud is a food mekka and no matter where you look you’ll find lots of amazing vegan, vegetarian, raw food and microbiotic restaurants. This healthy food is worth going all the way to Ubud for.
JOIN A BALINESE COOKING CLASS
Discover the secrets of authentic Balinese cooking by joining a cooking class. The classes are often packaged with early morning market tours that let you explore the variety of fresh tropical vegetables and aromatic spices before you learn to make your own traditional dishes from satay to spicy sambal sauces.
GO ON AN OUTDOOR ADVENTURE
If you find yourself restless after spending time at the pool or doing yoga all day, then get your adrenaline pumping with some outdoor adventure sports! ATV beach rides, elephant trekking, tubing and buggy tours are some of the popular options.
