Bali

Dear all - greetings from the Netherlands!

We will be staying in Bali for 5 days - at Tanjungbenoa.

Our trip is to rest and enjoy the sun , but only in the afternoons.

The mornings are to see Bali, interact with the locals and learn more about their culture.

Can someone give us advise on which areas, temples and sites to visit?

Thanks so much,

Sierra

we have compiled a list of things to see and do in bali and you will find this on the bali forum home page (right hand side), there is also a number of lists which we have compiled and they contain helpful information for first timers such as recommended drivers to book for day trips, currency exchange and other tips. Five days is a very short amount of time to explore Bali, there is so much to enjoy.

You would be better off considering doing a couple of full day trips as only doing a morning trip then returning to the hotel for the afternoon will limit you. Even though things do not seem far away on a map traveling time is much longer than you think due to the slow roads and other factors. to get to some of the lovely temples and sites you wish to explore. there are some closer places which you can do in a half day but a full day trip will cover a lot more, you could for example have a full day trip then spend a good portion of the next morning relaxing around the pool / beach / local area around your hotel and then perhaps go somewhere like tanah lot or uluwatu for the afternoon sunset tour.

check out our lists first and see what appeals to you and contact a few drivers to see who is available and ask for some examples of their popular day trips.

As you are in Tanjung Benoa I would say Uluwatu is a must but it is better in the afternoon and evening. There is a Kecak and fire dance that starts at 6 and finishes at 7. You can have your photos taken next to the dancers in traditional costume and the sunset is usually very good.

As others have mentioned doing a trip just in the morning is almost impossible. From Tanjung, apart from Uluwatu, other places are at least an hour or more away.
