ITINERARY
Day 00 | Arrive in Bali
Om Swastiastu! Welcome to Bali. On arrival at Ngurah Rai International Airport in Denpasar, we’ll be transferred to the home-stay / guest-house (check-in after 15:00 Hrs). The rest of the day is free to relax. You can opt to go out shopping or just stroll in the streets.
Day 01 | Ubud
Today we head to Ubud, the artistic and cultural heart of Bali. The charming Julia Roberts starrer “EAT PRAY LOVE” popular Ubud, is surrounded by lush rice paddies and steep ravines setting the stage for breathtaking scenery.
Famous for its historical temples, yoga retreats and cultural classes, art galleries, day trips and more, Ubud, is the right-choice to begin our 7-day sojourn in Bali.
Much of the charm of Ubud lies in the beauty of the surrounding countryside and the unspoiled local villages which are well worth exploring on foot. Wander around the market or get up close with the long tailed macaques’ monkeys at the monkey forest. End the day with an easy straight-forward walk on a beautiful trail through rice fields and scenic grasslands affording gorgeous views of the river valley below.
If you’re a foodie, try the smoothies, vegan or simply try some street food. Known as one of the top places in Bali to experience and appreciate Balinese culture, Ubud has a more traditional, vibrant and laid-back nightlife than the fancier and more hard-partying places in the south.
When it comes to deciding what to do at night in Ubud, you will be selecting from a number of friendly bars and pubs where you can experience excellent live music. If you are looking for some more traditional culture at night, check out a performance of some Balinese dancing. Spend you evenings as you feel like! If these fail to interest you, get a spa done.
Day 02 | Ubud & Around
Go all out on today’s full day experience. We start the day with a trip to an impressive waterfall, unique for its lush green surroundings and heavy water flow, perfect for swimming and enjoying the fresh water. We then visit a stunning landscape that features a waterfall, river and an ancient temple. We then visit a temple famous for its natural spring water which is frequented by the locals for a cleansing ritual bathing.
We’ll have lunch overlooking an active volcano and the glistening Volcanic Crater Lake. After lunch, we spend our afternoon wandering around the famous rice terraces of Ubud, the area’s most well known and frequently photographed.
Have you ever heard of Luwak coffee, Indonesia’s world famous coffee? Learn about the unusual method of producing the coffee at a local coffee plantation, which involves the coffee berries being eaten and defecated by Asian palm civets, then collecting the part-digested beans from the forest floor. After sampling the other coffees and teas made at the plantation, perhaps opt to taste a Luwak coffee too.
Day 03 | Udub – Munduk
Another full day of exciting experiences awaits us. Today, we drive to Lake Beratan, one of Bedugul’s three natural lakes. Admire the views of the peaceful waters and snap photos of the 17th-century temple of Beratan located on a small island on the lake. Continue north, turning off the main road to a small mountain road overlooking the Twin Lakes of Buyan and Tamblingan.
Stop to click photos at the viewpoints and enjoy the scenery before descending to the beautiful remote and wonderfully scenic area of Munduk. Check in to our cozy home-stay with the scenic view of the misty mountains. Interact with the hosts to understand the Balinese culture and lifestyle.
Day 04 | Munduk – Seminyak
Munduk is the perfect location for hiking due to its lush tropical rainforests, stunning waterfalls and relatively cool temperature (20°-25°C) due to its elevation. Because of the exceptional weather and plenty of rainfall, many fruits, vegetables and spices are grown here contributing to its ‘Garden of Eden’ feel.
There are three picture perfect waterfalls around this place that are sure to take your breathe away! We drive to each one of them and yes, two of them require a half hour hike but it’s worth the effort. We spend time absorbing in their beauty. Forget not to carry your swimwear as the blue waters are so inviting to swim and cool down.
We end the day with a visit to the infamous sea-side Tanah Lot, a pilgrimage site and temple set dramatically on a rock in the sea before we reach Seminyak for our overnight stay.
Day 05 | Island Day Trip
Early morning, we leave Seminyak to get the boat to Penida Island, an unexplored gem of Bali. Expect white-sand beaches with silky blue waters, 200 meter high coastal cliff drops and absolutely untouched nature. It’s really surprising!!! How this little wonderland in spite of being just about 30-40 minute boat ride from Bali managed to elude the tourist radar. We explore the beautiful beaches of the island for the whole day. If you’re keen in snorkeling, this is the right place to do it. We conclude the day trip and take our return boat to Sanur and then to Seminyak.
Day 06 | Seminyak
It’s beach time! The lengthy coastline, breezy beaches and bright skies are inviting enough to try the water sport of your choice. Take time to relax at the beach for more fun in the sun, try a traditional Balinese massage or do some souvenir shopping. Post lunch, we drive to the illustrious temple of Uluwatu perched on the edge of a rocky cliff. Built in the 11th century, the temple provides a glimpse into the ancient life in this enchanting seaside setting.
Enjoy a stunning view of the Indian Ocean from 70 meters above sea level and spend time exploring the scenery and befriending the monkeys that inhabit the temple. Enjoy a mesmerizing Kecak Fire Dance performance during sunset. On return to Seminyak, hit the best night-club in town tonight and rock! It’s our last night together, so let’s make the most of the time before we bid goodbye tomorrow.
Day 07 | Bid Adieu!!!
The morning is free at leisure until transferring to Ngurah Rai International Airport in Denpasar for the departure flight. We bid good bye to each other and head home with sweet memories.
