Part comment as somewhat too busy for me, especially 10 August, think traffic!

For example, it took me 10 mins to reach outskirts of Sanur from airport a few days ago then 40 mins last few kms.

17th August is Independence Day celebrations so good that you haven't planned activities for this day, again traffic!

Why are you going from Ubud back to Seminyak, and then planning trips best done from Ubud? So day 3 and day 4 should be done from Ubud to save time in the car. If you wanted a change from Ubud, then Sanur would have been more sensible.

My only other comment is the trip seems way too hectic on travel days and day 3 & 4 sound absolutely dreadful to me. Not only have you got too much listed, you're going to the most toursitic spots. You'll have time to run in and run out of each place but not stop and enjoy. However if that's your way of travel, then go for it.

Agree with cbimages; way too hectic and I think you should have a good look at a map as you're a bit all over the place like a mad woman's washing. Have a look at Google maps and 'get directions' and remember travelling in Bali is slow going due to narrow not so good condition roads, lots of traffic and depending sometimes what time of the day you're travelling. And stop and smell the roses. Have fun; great choice for the birthday venue. Enjoy. Cheers.

Totally agree with above. I would personally cut the entire trip in half, spending more time in each place and plan another trip another time. At least you would have experienced something of Bali without running in and out and definitely wouldn’t go back to Seminyak a second time as suggested by cbimages.

I have come to realize that some people do go on holiday to see as much as they can fit in, then go home exhausted, it’s a matter of opinion and whatever suits that person. I on the other hand prefer to relax and take my time.

Have a great trip and understand it’s not always possible to stick to a tight schedule in Bali.
