Bali has always been a heavenly destination to visit. Though, recently this piece of heaven on earth has gained lots of attention of tourists. Bali has been on the “Must-Travel-To” list of a lot of people this year. So we took it upon us to tell you about the best things to do in Bali, so you make the most out of your trip there!
1. Hiking during Sunrise at Mount Batur
Suggested by Love and Road
Doubtlessly, one of the best things to do in Bali is to go climbing Mount Batur during sunrise hours so you can watch the majestic sunrise from the mountains as if it were coming out of the volcano.
Make sure that you have confirmed about sunrise time with the local folks. And wear a comfortable tracksuit and good grip joggers. Take a torch with you since you might have to leave around 3 AM for it’s a 2-hour ascend. Don’t forget to keep a jacket in your backpack, because as you reach higher up the mountain it tends to get cooler. Once you are at the top, you will want to freeze the time because you would have never felt as close to nature as then.
2. The Monkey Forest in Ubud
Suggested by Getting Stamped
If you’re an animal lover, the Ubud Monkey forest is a must place for you to visit in Bali. Even though taking bananas to the forest is not recommended but you might want to take a few if you want to take pictures with the monkeys real up close! Traveling is all about making memories, what would be a better way of making fun memories than spending an afternoon with the cute monkeys?
3. Experiencing Sunrise at The Sanur Beach
Suggested by A World to Travel
Even though Sanur is a public beach, it’s mostly really quiet and peaceful here during sunrise hour. Thanks to the fact that most people are not morning people. You might have seen the sunrise or sunset at many beaches but this particular sunrise you will remember for the days to come! It will be one of the best highlights of Bali.
4. Enjoying the Gigit Waterfall
Suggested by Singapore n Beyond
If you are a nature-lover, visiting the Gigit Waterfall will leave you speechless. It will fill your heart with serenity and make your soul ecstatic. Yes it is true – this prepossessing waterfall that is found in the north of Bali is a place you don’t want to miss out on.
You can get a snack before you start climbing those stairs. It’s going to take you almost 20 minutes to reach the waterfall but once you reach there, you won’t be disappointed. Don’t be afraid to take that refreshing dip. It is heavenly.
5. Partying at the Potato Head Beach Club
Suggested by Foodie Flashpacker

This amazing beach is situated is Seminyak and there are exquisite restaurants located there with a few cool bars too. It is said that the best, most exciting parties happen at the Potato Head club in Bali. We know that you have already jotted this one down on your pad. Good going!
6. Pemuteran Snorkeling Experience
Suggested by Survive Travel
You visiting Bali and not going for snorkeling at Pemuteran would be doing injustice to yourself. Seriously, this place is great since there are two sites for snorkeling just a little off the beach. One of them is natural reef and the other one is man-made, regardless though, both are amazing! One of the best things about Pemuteran is that it is never too crowded here and also, it’s not even that expensive. The sea is even great for swimming i.e. if you are not a fan of snorkeling. Also, there is this monkey temple nearby that you must visit if you have time!
7. A Walk in the Rice Fields
Suggested by Finding Beyond
The town of Ubud is also famous for its rice fields. It is a liberating experience to say the least. You can hire a guide to help you through your walk in the rice fields or you can just guide yourself. It’s really not that difficult since there are only two main routes in the rice field.
While you are at it, you are going to walk past the hardworking farmers and the beautiful terraces of baby shoots of rice. You can pick a spot for yourself to sit down and just admire the natural beauty all around you. It is very calming – away from the hustle bustle of the city life; worries, the stress of your daily life problems. Just close your eyes and sink your heart in the serenity of the milieu.
