Also known as the Land of the Gods, Bali is a luscious green paradise, a food lover’s dream, a romantic escape and the ultimate destination for a fun trip with friends. Its sheer natural beauty of looming volcanoes, lush greenery and spectacular flowing waterfalls make Bali travel a must on any adventurer’s bucket list. If you’re thinking of booking your next Bali holiday, it is important to do your research and plan ahead to ensure your trip is a memorable one.
Choosing the location for your Bali holiday is perhaps the most important factor that will determine the enjoyment of your stay. Every destination in Bali is unique and each appeals to a different audience depending on their interests. If you’re drawn to experiencing authentic Balinese culture then Ubud, located in the centre of the island, is home to a vibrant arts scene, Balinese dancing, lush rice fields and extravagant temples.
With thousands of accommodation options to choose from, Bali has something to suit everyone. Visiting reputable travel sites and blogs such as Conde Nast Traveller, TripAdvisor and Booking.com will provide you with a large range of reviews and blog articles detailing other travellers experiences at hotels and resorts all over Bali. They provide information on price, location, customer service and local attractions to help you find the best accommodation for your needs.
Unless you love the rain, visiting Bali during the dry season is a must. From April to September, you are likely to experience sunnier, tropical weather which will enable you to get out and explore! With such warm and humid conditions, it is important to pack clothing that is light and breathable. If you plan on visiting one of the island’s sacred temples it is local custom to ensure your knees and shoulders are covered. Sarong rentals are available at most sacred sites however we recommend packing some long sleeve shirts and pants to ensure you don’t miss out.
Most importantly don’t be in a hurry to chase around tour groups or race around the bustling main streets looking for landmarks. Relax, take a Balinese yoga class and give your body the rest it deserves. Perhaps a massage is enough to convince you! The Viceroy offers traditional Balinese massages using local techniques that have been practiced for centuries by members of the community. The perfect remedy for those long-haul flights, a Balinese massage will help you relax and rid all the tightness and stress from your body.
