Bali Tour tegallalang rice terraces holiday

Bali is more than just being a beach and surfing destination, the whole island is packed with tons of activities from water sports to temple visits. If you want to take a tour of the island, it is advisable to hire a driver than get a cab – cheaper and more flexible.

Activities in Bali

1. Visit the temples

The architecture of these temples are really interesting and each temple has a different story and represent a different element.

2. Rice Paddy Fields

One of the most popular rice field in Bali is the Tegallalang Rice Terraces, located just 15-20 minutes from Ubud. Built by the Balinese people using minimal machinery, it was engineered in such a way that the fields would be hydrated all year by the water from the top of the mountain.

3. Mt. Batur in Kintamani

Nestled in the scenic Lake Batur is the Batur Volcano – one of Bali’s active volcanoes.  You can either have lunch and have a nice view of the mountain or choose to have a hike at a pathway on the volcano.

4. Kuta Beach

A trip to Bali wouldn’t be complete without surfing the waves of the vibrant Kuta Beach.

5. Babi Guling

Perhaps, the most popular Balinese dish you could find while in Bali.  Babi Guling or suckling pig is cooked with many spices and leaves inside the young pig’s stomach and roasted until the skin turns brown and crisp. Delicious! 🙂
