What is your best overall travel tip for Bali?

Keep your plans flexible. There's so much to see and do, and each city and area has a completely different personality. You may fall in love with an area you didn't expect and want to spend extra time there or go back later. Make sure you give yourself enough time to explore all the different areas too!

We recommend hiring a local to drive you around for a day! It was pretty inexpensive, and they take you to some great spots including waterfalls, temples, and shops.

Alexandra's Travel Tips for Bali

What is your best overall travel tip for Bali?

If you can avoid the holiday season, do. Many neighboring islanders travel to Bali for vacation around Christmas / New Year, and it was extremely crowded. There was traffic everywhere no matter what time of day (except early morning before 6AM). We stayed in Nusa Dua, and it was incredibly far from everything due to traffic. We wished we would have stayed in Ubud or closer to that area to avoid it.

What is your best overall travel tip for Bali?

We loved the restaurant Opia. Try Blanco Par Mandif for a unique fine dinning experience. See Tegallalang rice terrace, Blangsinga waterfall, coffee plantation, Ubud market, and go to Tirta Empul. Stay at beautiful villas and swim in the ocean. Try all the food and watch all the breathtaking sunsets.

Rent a scooter to ride around the local spots from the market, to the monkey forest and all the spots along the way. It's a sweaty palm experience you won't forget!

Cameron's Travel Tips for Bali

What is your best overall travel tip for Bali?

Find yourself a good driver. Tourism is the main economy in Bali which is supported by drivers. We found an awesome driver who curated tours, acted as tour guide, answered all of our questions, watched after our belongings, and took some additional photos. He was awesome and we recommend you do the same while in Bali.

Again the must-go & see’s are the rice terrace, Bali swing, Bali Zoo (fun & not your typical zoo), coffee plantation, monkey forest, La Laguna Beach Bar (this restaurant is not only yummi but GORGEOUS scenery), Ubud art market, and you must visit one of the temples

BRAD's Travel Tips for Bali

What is your best overall travel tip for Bali?

Ubud is the spiritual center of Bali, but walking around, you'd think it was the food center! There's so much good food to be had in Ubud ranging from healthy vegan/vegetarian to authentic Indonesian.

BRAD's Travel Tips for Bali

What is your best overall travel tip for Bali?

Tegallalang is definitely a farming site and not just a tourist spot. The avenues and walkways through the rice paddies can get tricky to navigate with narrow, muddy pathways and steep inclines. Even Garrett slipped and fell! Unluckily for Garrett but funnily for me, our Flytographer was there to capture the whole thing.

BRAD's Travel Tips for Bali

What is your best overall travel tip for Bali?

These monkeys are total scoundrels! If you go to the monkey forest, absolutely make sure you don't have anything loose on you that a monkey can steal. They will take anything they can get their hands on and constantly try to grab things from you - sun/glasses, water bottles, phones! If you don't keep personal items stashed away or close on you, you can bet a monkey will grab it and run off into the trees. If you're lucky, you can bribe them to return it for food, but otherwise you can wave it goodbye.

Paolo's Travel Tips for Bali

What is your best overall travel tip for Bali?

Spend your time in different cities. If you only spend your time in one area, you'll only get a slice of what Balinese life is like! We stayed in Seminyak for the city atmosphere, trekked to Ubud for the jungle, visited Jatiluwih for breath-taking views, and journeyed to Nusa Lembongan for a true island escape.
