What's included in this trip
Beautiful Bali SummaryAdd to Shortlist
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, meet monkeys in their forest sanctuary or, for the more adventurous, go whitewater rafting. Enjoy a night market visit and Balinese cultural performance in the evening.
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, trek 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 coast for a day of snorkelling or scuba diving among some of Bali's impressive reefs in the Bali Barat National Park. Continue to the beachside fishing village of Lovina - a great base for exploring the north coast of Bali. Take the chance to head out on outrigger boats to view dolphins.
Leave the coast behind and visit Seririt Market and the tranquil Banjar hot springs. Travel inland to the picturesque mountain town of Bedugul.
Admire Pura Ulun Danu Bratan, one of Bali's most beautiful temples, situated in the centre of a glassy lake. Head back to Ubud, pick up some last-minute souvenirs or enjoy a final Balinese banquet before bidding this magical island farewell.
