BEST TIME TO VISIT BALI

Bali’s climate is tropical, as it is only 8 degrees from the equator. The island experiences year-round warm (and humid) weather, with temperatures of 26-28°C on average. Bali has two distinct seasons: a dry season and a wet season.

The best time to go to Bali is during the dry season, which lasts from May through September. Expect beautiful sunny days with temperatures in the upper twenties to mid-thirties during these months. While June through August is the peak travel period, these months give excellent conditions for exploring the island. Water sports such as surfing, scuba diving

The rainy season lasts from October to mid-April. The waves are a bit rougher, the winds pick up near the coast, and it rains cats and dogs during these months. December through February is when it rains most frequently. If you must go during the wet season, April is a good time to travel.

VISA REQUIREMENTS

Depending on your passport and citizenship, you have the following options, when your main purpose is to travel to the island as a tourist:

To enter Indonesia, your passport must be valid for at least six more months from the date of entry.  You also must have an onward ticket when arriving in the country.

HOW TO PREVENT BALI BELLY

The tap water in Bali is of uncertain quality and is often pegged as the cause of many cases of the ‘Bali belly’ (I’m sure you know what that means, I am not going to go into details) Go to the local mini-mart and stock up on big bottles of water to help you stay hydrated (Very important because it’s really hot and humid in Bali and you need to drink lots of water).

I, unfortunately, got incredibly sick when I was in Bali, due to food poisoning. I have written my story down in a previous blog post if interested.

GETTING AROUND IN BALI?

Getting around in Bali is quite easy and cheap.  If you fancy getting local or you are staying just outside of town, then hiring a motorbike or scooter is a great idea. It’s not too hard to drive in Ubud compared to the main roads in Bali, so it’s a great and very cheap option that will prove to be super convenient and efficient for exploring Ubud and the surrounding areas.

You can hire a scooter for around 60,000IDR a day, which is about $5,- AUD.

You do need an international driving license which you have to apply for in your home country. They are usually only valid together with your “real” driving license, so you need to bring both along. You can get a temporary Balinese driving license (tourist driver’s license) from the police station in Denpasar within a day.

Alternatively, you can hire a car with a private driver for 450,000 IDR who will take you to all the local hot spots.

Bali itinerary 7 days
DAY 1 | SANUR AND SURROUNDINGS

The first day starts off with relaxing and exploring in Sanur. Sanur is located about a 20-minute drive from the airport.

Sanur is known for being a quaint seaside town in Bali that offers visitors a quieter slice of the island. This area is not known for its parting like some other parts are. It is located far away from hubs like Kuta or Seminyak. So many holidaymakers travel here for the serenity, making it the perfect place for the start of the trip.

Sanur offers quiet (not surfing) beaches with beautiful soft sand. It has a wide selection of restaurants, pubs as well as resorts and smaller hotels. There are not a huge number of attractions here like large temples, but the few points of interest are fascinating, and the main reason to come here is to take it easy and enjoy the natural beauty of Bali and relax from the travels to the island.

One of the best things to do is spend the day on the beach and then dine on fresh seafood at night, and you will find a few charming bars and live music events if you are looking for something to do in the evenings.  One of the nicest areas of Sanur is its coastline which is flanked by a paved walkway that wraps around the edge of the sea and is the ideal spot to go for an evening stroll.

RECOMMENDED ACCOMMODATION 

If you are looking for a reasonably priced hotel in Sanur then I would recommend Respati Beach Hotel. This understated hotel with traditional, decorative features is 11 kilometers from Bali Bird Park and 18 kilometers from the restaurants and shopping in central Seminyak. The blue-washed rooms have balconies or terraces, flat-screen TVs, minibars, and open doors. There are also cottage-style rooms with sitting areas. Breakfast is complimentary. Other amenities include an outdoor pool, an open-air restaurant and a bar, plus bike and kayak rentals (fee).

Bali itinerary 7 days

DAY 2 | TOURIST HOT SPOT | Kuta, Seminyak and Canggu

For your second day on the island, it is time to visit a bit of a tourist hot spot. You will not encounter typical Bali, but it is kind of a must-see when you are on the island. The hot spot to visit are:
  • Kuta
  • Seminyak
  • Canggu

These three cities are all on the seashore in the southwest of Bali. You can choose to check out all three, hang out at one or choose two different cities to spend some time at.

If you prefer to go to only one city, then I would suggest heading to Canggu. Especially Batu Bolong Beach is lovely. It is the best place for first surf experience, but be careful so many people in the water. 

Visit Tanah Lot

Tanah Lot,

There’s no shortage of beautiful temples in Bali, and Tanah Lot is no exception!

Tanah Lot, located a 30-minute drive from Seminyak, is one of Bali’s most stunning temples and an iconic landmark in Indonesia. It’s on the outskirts of trendy Canggu, close to Tanah Lot Temple.

The Hindu temple is a popular destination for pilgrims, sunset chasers, and Instagrammers, and it’s easy to see why. With an stunning backdrop consisting of a rock that sticks out of the sea, Tanah Lot has an incredible setting.

If you’re not taking a Grab Taxi or self-driving, it’s easy to join a sunset tour or book a private transfer to get there. To enter the temple, you must pay a modest entrance fee (65,000 rupiahs). It will be worth it even if it’s just to see the stunning views. Check the tide timetable before visiting since you’ll only be able to go inside during low tide.

RECOMMENDED ACCOMMODATIONS

If you decide that Canggu is the best option for you, I recommend one of these options as your accommodation.

  • COMO Uma Canggu. The Como Uma Canggu channel’s Bali’s famous surf culture, but with a touch of luxury. There’s a beach club that is chilled to horizontal (featuring seafood feasts and fruit-packed cocktails), an absolutely lovely lagoon pool, and various spacious, soothing sleeping quarters that are equally suited to canoodling couples.
  • Hotel Tugu Bali. The finest lodging in Bali, this exquisite old hotel is 13 kilometers from both the Nirwana Bali Golf Club and the famed water temple at Tanah Lot. Minibars are available in opulent rooms with antique furnishings, as well as soaking tubs. Private plunge pools and 4-poster beds are standard in most quarters; some of the added features.

Bali itinerary 7 days

Day 3 | Ubud Center and Monkey forest

On day three of this Bali itinerary 7 days, it is time to head into the more authentic Bali and we head inland to Ubud.

On your way to Ubud, I suggest you stop at Taman Ayun Temple. This temple is located about a 30-minute drive from Canggu and is simply too amazing to skip. Taman Ayun is one of five sites jointly listed as part of the Bali Cultural Landscape World Heritage Site. It is also one of six surviving royal temples on the island, dating back to the 17th century. Highlights include a huge cockfighting pavilion, an ornate watchtower, a beautiful moat and numerous multi-tiered shrines known as Meru. The entrance to this temple costs 30,000 rupiahs for foreigners. (Which is about $3,-)

 

Visit the Monkey Forest

Another 30-minute drive towards Ubud brings you to the infamous Monkey Forrest.

The Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary, also known as Mandala Wisata Wenara Wana, is a Hindu temple complex nestled in the jungle amid towering ancient trees. There are three temples within the complex, and there are numerous little walkways and trails to explore.

What truly sets this temple apart from others is the cheeky residents! Hundreds of macaque monkeys live in this region, and you’re certain to see troops of them around every turn!

Admission is IDR 40,000 for adults and IDR 30,000 for kids. Which comes down to $4 AUD for an adult and $3 AUD for a child, a bargain for a day out!

Just a word of warning, they might seem cute, but they are super sneaky and can be dangerous! Make sure to follow the safety guidelines and remember to keep a safe distance. It’s also a good idea to bring nothing with you when you visit the sanctuary since monkeys are notorious for stealing objects. They’ll take anything they can get their hands on – from your phone to your watch to whatever else is in between! If you must carry things with you, make sure they’re concealed.

After visiting the monkey forest and you still have all your belongings, cause they cheeky basters do like to steal, head to the Saraswati Temple.

The temple dedicated to the goddess of knowledge and wisdom is a lovely water palace encircled with lotus blossoms. You must go up the steps leading to the front door if you want to visit for free. The temple’s small bridge, which leads to the structure, is lovely with lotus flowers on either side. You may pay to see the traditional dance performed by the temple performers if you wish; however, this will set you back around 50k IDR. If you don’t want to participate in the performance, you can visit and leave within 15

Also check out Puri Saren Agung, better known as the Royal Palace of Ubud. The royal family still lives in this palace, so you can only visit part of it.

In the evening, if you still have some energy left, head to Pura Dalem Temple. A beautiful temple where at night they show Kecak Fire & Trance Balinese Dances.

RECOMMENDED ACCOMMODATION

  • The Kayon Resort. The Kayon Jungle Resort is a retreat where travelers weary of the fast pace of everyday life may rejuvenate themselves in the beauty of nature. This tropical paradise is just 25 minutes from Ubud’s cultural center.
  • Bidadari Private Villas & Retreat. On a hilly hillside, this luxury resort is 4 kilometers from the Ubud Palace, 9 kilometers from the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary, and 11 kilometers from Tirta Empul temple. The beautiful, 1- to 4-bedroom wooden and stone villas are individually decorated with bright artwork and carved furniture.
  • Kuwarasan A Pramana Experience. This tranquil, luxurious hotel is 10 kilometers from the macaques and Hindu temples at the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary, in rice country. Features include two high-end restaurants (one Japanese), a stylish woodsy bar, and a wine cellar, as well as a spa, yoga classes, and an outdoor infinity pool with swim-up bar.
  • The Sankara Resort by Pramana. This lovely retreat is set in a palm-fringed rice paddies and coconut palms, 3.1 kilometers from the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary and 4.4 kilometers from ancient Hindu carvings at Goa Gajah. Rooms are airy, elegant, and decorated with island motifs like as canopy beds and floor-to-ceiling windows.

Bali itinerary 7 days

Day 4 | Ubud Surroundings and Tegallalang Rice fields

Today we are staying in the Ubud area, as there is still so much to explore!

Get lost in the Tegallalang Rice Terraces

The Tegalalang Rice Terrace is one of the famous tourist stops in Bali. It is stunningly lush and well maintained/touristy rice terrace with lots of vantage points, zips lines and ‘Bali Swings”.  This is probably one of the best Instagram-able moments of your holiday!

The rice terraces for which the fields are now known were originally called the “Ceking rice terraces.” The rice paddies are a beautiful setting for rice fields that visitors can pay to explore and see the swinging rice terraces. They should also be on your list of things to do since they’re one of Bali’s most famous sights.

The rice terraces are located north of Ubud in the cute little Tegalalang hamlet. It is said that the terraces rise 600 meters above sea level, which means spectacular views from there. If you’re planning a trip to Bali, don’t forget about the Ubud rice terraces.

It is located a short 20-minute drive from Ubud and is very easy to find. There is a large carpark just a couple of minutes’ walk from the fields where you can park your car for a small fee. (I think it was around the 10,000 IDR, but don’t @ me)

At the entrance, they will ask for a ‘donation’. So technically the entrance is free, but the locals ask for a small donation to help improve their livelihood and maintain the terraces. They are located throughout the rice fields, so bring a bunch of smaller notes so you can pay each at each wooden shack. The average donation is usually around 10,000 IDR (which is roughly $1 AUD). Depending on how many donations you’re willing to pay you can decide how far into the rice terraces you want to go.

The Tegalalang Rice Terrace Swing

Just like most places in Bali, the swing craze has hit Tegalalang.

There are two options: one that is close to the entrance and low to the ground, and another that is higher up with a wider perspective.

Both offer beautiful views of the rice terraces, but if you only want to go on one, then I would personally go for the one that is higher up.

Tegalalang Rice Terrace Swing Price 150.000 IDR per person. This swing open daily from 08:00 to 19:00.

I spend about 1 hour here, so don’t plan a whole day at these fields. Yes, they are amazing and very cool, but truth be told, once you’ve seen it, you’ve seen it. And there is only so many photos you can take.

In the surroundings, you will find lots of touristy shops and restaurants, which are fun to check out.

tegallalang rice terrace

Goa Gajah

In the afternoon, I recommend you go to the Elephant Cave, Goa Gajah, a must-see in any Bali itinerary for 7 days. This cave is seen as one of the most important Buddhist sights on the island. The temple boasts some spectacular Balinese architecture, intricate carvings, and very detailed statues, along with some well-preserved ancient relics.

Goa Gajah is open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Advise is to go early, cause it gets very hot. The entrance fee to the Elephant Cave is around 15,000 rupiah, or about $1.50,-.

For cheap or traditional clothing,  Indonesian souvenirs and local food, head to the central market on Jalan Raya in Ubud.

Be prepared to bargain, I was told by my tour guide that you should pay around 50% of the initial price. These markets are a great shopping experience and it allows you to take home some amazing mementos.

Bali itinerary 7 days

Day 5 | HIKING

Next up on your 7 days Bali itinerary is  is to wake up to some of the best views in the world, when in Ubud. So I recommend you start your day with a sunrise trek to the majestic Mount Batur and its volcanic top, Kintamani.  You will have to get up very early for this, around 2.30 am. A great site to find the perfect your is get your guide. On this site, you can book private tours for anywhere in Bali. They are pretty cheap and very reliable.

Then, take a trip to the holy spring waters of Tirta Empul Temple near the mountain if you wish.

Tirta Empul Temple

Pura Tirta Empul is a stunning Hindi water temple famous for its holy water used for ritual bathing and cleansing ceremonies.

The temple was built more than a thousand years ago in 926 AD and is dedicated to Vishnu, the Hindu God of water. It is one of Bali’s six most sacred temples, as well as one of the island’s holy water sources. You’ll find a number of courtyards scattered throughout the complex, each housing a water-filled pool brimming with devotees who’ve come to perform water purification. There is also a huge koi pond, a boiling hot spring pond, and several intriguing sculptures spread throughout the area.

It’s possible to add on a cleansing bath for an extra charge, but there are several regulations to follow. Check with your guide or the staff if you have any questions about how to proceed. Remember to bring an additional set of clothes since swimwear is not permitted.

Before visiting the temple, keep in mind to dress modestly and cover up. Rent a sarong and sash at the temple’s entrance instead of forgetting to do so. The temple’s main gate costs 15,000 rupias.

The rest of the day you can chill, get a Balinese massage or join a yoga class.

You can return to the same hotel as the previous two nights or you can treat yourself to Hanging Garden of Bali, one of the best hotels in the middle of the jungle. (And a bucket list hotel for me)

Bali itinerary 7 days

Day 6 | WATERFALLS GALORE

On the penultimate day of your trip to Bali we are heading towards the island’s most impressive waterfall, Gitgit Waterfall. Along the way stop at Kebun Raya Bali, a sprawling botanical gardens with diverse tree, plant & bird species, plus a greenhouse & lake views. And at Ulun Danu Beratan, A well-known lake in a tranquil, lush setting featuring a historic water temple & mountain views. You should see heaps of monkeys on the road near the twin lakes.

Bali itinerary 7 days, must see Ulun Danu Beratan

Then head to Gitgit waterfalls. There is a fee of IDR20K per person when you go down towards the Waterfall and the fees booth closed around 5 pm, so you can practically go there for free after the booth closes. The way has many steps but the path is well maintained with railings on this side for most of the path. There are many small shops along the way. There are quite a few “guides’ around that will ask for a lot of money to entre the waterfall, be sure to not fall for those scams.

Bali itinerary 7 days, must see waterfalls

If there is still time left in the day, drive a bit further and head to Aling-Aling Waterfall. This is a beautiful waterfall and kind of a must-see when in Bali. For $9 (US Dollars) you get a guide, water bottle, and 3 different waterfalls to cliff jump from. 5,10, and 15 meters high.

Singaraja is a nice town to stay the next night.

RECOMMENDED ACCOMMODATIONS

Underneath are just a couple of accommodation options for Singaraja.

Day 7 | BUKIT BADUNG

As this is the last full day on the island, it is time to head towards the airport vicinity. The last day you will be staying in the Bukit Badung area. This is the piece of land that juts out to the south of the island and is known for its amazing white sand beaches, its roughed cliffs, and its incredible luxury resorts.

Some of the most famous beaches are Padang Padang (where the movie “Eat Pray Love” was filmed), Tebing Pantai Balangan, with its wonderful cliff views, and Pantai Tegal Wangi, which hides a cave are located in this area.

In the afternoon, before the sun sets, visit the Uluwatu temple, located on a cliff; you can see one of the best sunsets on the island from here. Green Bowl Beach is by far the best beach in Uluwatu.

Nusa Penida

Another option what you can do on your last day, if you still are motivated and energized to travel around is to take a day trip to Nusa Penida.  This island is simply incredible. Home to some magnificent photo stops worthy beached, such as Angela Billabong, Broken Beach, Klingking Beach, and the Crystal Bay. You can swim in the crystal clear waters our go snorkelling in Crystal Bay, Manta Bay, or Wall Bay and discover the majestic marine life in the area. This is definitely a must for any beachgoer visiting Bali.

There are organized day trip to this island, I recommend checking out Klook for some great tour options.

RECOMMENDED ACCOMMODATIONS

For the last night, I have opted to go for the more luxurious hotels. Of course, if this is not in your budget, then there are quite a few alternative options available:

And that is the end of your Bali vacation. By ending in Bukit Badung, you are reasonably close to the airport, so whatever time your flight is, you know you should be able to make it.  I hope this Bali itinerary for 7 days was helpful.
