Bali, Indonesia is a place full of wonder, beauty, culture and love. The island received plenty of attention after the novel Eat, Pray, Love was released, but those who have visited know that Bali is about much more than just yoga retreats and finding yourself emotionally. Instead, a holiday to Bali is a great activity for backpacking singles, newlyweds, families, and simply anyone else who wants to enjoy some fun in the sun in a wonderful place. As you plan your next trip to Seminyak in Bali, here are some things to keep in mind.
Stay Near The Beach
If you truly want to enjoy your time in Bali, then it only makes sense that you’ll vacation near a beach. Seminyak Beach is one of the most popular beaches in all of Bali and it’s perfect for tourists. What’s great about Seminyak is that it’s right next to Legian Beach, another popular hangout, as well as just a short taxi ride away from Potato Head beach. Seminyak is a well-developed part of the city, so you won’t have to worry about finding something to do. If you have no other desires for your Bali vacation other than to sit on the beach and hit the clubs, stay at the Anantara Seminyak Resport & Spa, or the Puri Saron Hotel. Both of these are within walking distance to a variety of activities that will make for an unforgettable vacation.
Find Cheap Activities
If you are visiting Seminyak from a developed country, such as the United States or Australia, you’ll quickly realize that your money goes much further in Bali than it will back home. Because of this, soak it up and enjoy as many cheap activities as you can. Adventure Scuba Diving provides scuba and snorkeling trips and you will be taken to a variety of great reefs and crystal-clear waters. If you prefer to stay above the water, you can rent a boat, go parasailing or do whatever else you desire. And if you’ve left your bathing suit at home, grab your golf clubs and head over to the Nirwana golf club, which is highly regarded as one of the top courses in all of Asia. No matter what you are looking for, you’ll find plenty of activities in Bali. And the best part may be the fact that they’ll all be cheaper than what you’d expect back home.
Eat Your Heart Out
Bali has tons of local cuisine options that will make your mouth water. Their specialty is foods that are fused with curry and other spices. However, you’ll also be able to find plenty of other Asian influences, as well as restaurants that cater to westerners as well. Come to Bali with an empty belly, and you’ll leave feeling full and in love with the food you just ate. If you want to play it safe, check out Sky Garden in Seminyak, which offers an all-you-can-eat buffet during the afternoon, and it turns into a wild dance club in the evening.
