Bali's largest Hindu town, Ubud, is also its artistic and cultural heart. There’s plenty of free time to browse the many craft shops. Enjoy a visit to the Gianyar night market.
Take a guided walk through local villages, and in the evening enjoy a Balinese cultural performance.
Take to the backstreets of Ubud and beyond on a bicycle. Stop and admire some of the intricately carved temples along the way. Afterwards, head to the hills and the peaceful, scenic village of Sidemen, set against the backdrop of Mt Agung, Bali's highest peak. This friendly village is a great place to chill out and meet the locals.
Learn the art of songket weaving at a local workshop before enjoying a traditional bungkus (take-away) lunch. Afterwards, travel into the mountains for wonderful views of Bali’s volcanic landscape.
Rise early and venture out into the cool, eerie darkness to climb Mt Batur. From the summit, take in the spectacular sunrise. For a sea change, head down to the coastal town of Lovina.
Head out for a day of snorkelling among some of Bali's impressive reefs in the Bali Barat National Park. Lovina is a great base for exploring the north coast of Bali.
Leave the coast behind and visit Seririt Market and the tranquil Banjar hot springs. Discover a hidden waterfall before travelling inland to the picturesque mountain town of Bedugul.
Pay a visit to the enchanting Bali Botanical Gardens in Bedugul. Travel through impossibly green countryside and past countless rice paddies on to Sanur, where you will spend the evening.
Travel by minivan from Sanur to the port of Padang Bai (approx 1.5 hrs).

Take a ferry from Bali to Lombok (approx 4-7 hrs). The ferry is a huge multi-level boat busy with food hawkers offering interesting snacks, as well as plenty of local passengers to meet. Although the journey is long, this ferry ride and the arrival into Lembar port can be quite an eye opener as both the scenery and culture of Lombok are very different to that of Bali.

Take a bus ride to Tetebatu (approx 3-4 hrs). The hill retreat of Tetebatu, situated in the centre of Lombok at the southern base of Mt Rinjani, provides spectacular views.
Visit a local village and learn about the traditional pottery industry before a delicious group feast for lunch.
Wake before dawn for great views of sunrise over Mt Rinjani. Take a short cidomo (horse-drawn cart) ride to visit the market and local villages known for their craftwork. Travel onwards to the small village of Senaru and spend the night nestled between Mt Rinjani and the steamy jungles of Lombok.
Stretch the legs on a walk to Sindang Gila Waterfall before a boat trip across to gorgeous white sand beaches of Gili Air.
Laze on isolated beaches, and spot turtles and reef sharks while snorkelling. Before leaving this idyllic tropical paradise, perhaps go island-hopping to nearby Gili Meno or Gili Trawangan.
Head back to the mainland to Senggigi. You might like to go for a group dinner to mark the end of this relaxing Lombok adventure.
Your Bali & Lombok adventure comes to and end today. Perhaps extend your stay in Senggigi, or pre-book a departure transfer to Lombok Airport.
