Days 3-4 Pangandaran

A small fishing village popular with visitors looking for a coastal escape, Pangandaran offers fine-sand beaches, cottage industries and an impressive green canyon.

As Bali's main arts and cultural centre, Ubud is a wonderful place to experience the magic that has made this such a popular travel destination.

Day 16 Sidemen

Set in the foothills of Mt Agung, the peaceful and friendly village of Sidemen is proof that Bali has pockets completely away from the tourist trail.
