Must do and See Attractions in Bali – A Wealth of Atrractions

Vacationing in Bali? There's plenty to do in this Indonesian town as you are soon about to find out. So what're you waiting for? Check them out for yourself first-hand!

1

Testing the Waters in Amed

Bali is a world-famous tourist destination full of folks who'd love nothing better than to soak up all the sun and surf that they can get. Counted among the world's best snorkelling spots, the waters of Jemeluk Beach in Amed are cool, inviting and full of wonder. Snorkellers will find a myriad of aquatic creatures and colourful coral beneath its shimmering surface. The curious snorkeller may also come across a shipwreck partially buried in sand and engulfed by coral; these are the ruins of an old Japanese ship that lie forgotten under the sea, except by the fish who flit in and out of the wreckage there, having the time of their lives.

Roaming the Countryside of Ubud

This town is known for lush, rolling country sides, wet paddy fields and verdant rainforest vegetation that border it. Whether you are staying within the town itself or at a resort such as COMO Shambhala Estate, Bali which is in an area nearby, attractions and activities in Ubud are aplenty and quite easily accessible for those who appreciate the serenity and splendour of nature, as well as foreign customs and cultures. Spend a day cycling past quaint villages and picturesque rice paddies; arrange a short home visit with a local family; be adventurous and take your yoga mat out with you on your walk outdoors in order to take advantage of the peaceful setting and clean air; visit the many holy sites and temples that are close by. The choice is yours.

Surf's Up in Kuta

Bali is a surfing hotspot that is renowned globally for its excellent waves; famous surfers from Australia are known to visit its shores often in order to hone their skills. While some beaches in South and Southeast Asia tend to be rough on the skin due to either sharp-edged coral or coral shrapnel that is hidden beneath the waters (the latter of which came about due to the destruction wreaked by the tsunami of 2004), the sand and waters at well-known Kuta beach are smoother and perfect for surfers to test out their moves on.

Scaling a Mountain in Batur Village

Mount Batur, located in its namesake village of Batur, towers over the surrounding landscape at close to two thousand metres tall. It is a destination that trekkers flock to due to the beautiful sunrise views that can be seen here, and is also considered a sacred mountain according to local Hindu beliefs. Trekkers can reach the top via two routes, the easier of which is the sunrise path route which is around eleven kilometres long; this is the one recommended for and favoured by those who are new to trekking or who are not at the peak of physical fitness. Climbing this mountain may also provide quite a thrill for some owing to the fact that Mount Batur is currently classified as an active volcano.
