Travel guide[edit]

Food[edit]

  • Lettuce Salad (Gado Gado)
  • This is an Indonesian standard appetizer, usually with potatoes, tomatoes, boiled eggs, cucumbers and fried soy beans (Tempe) and some vegetables. After the yellow sauce, it was especially cool.
  • Bali cuisine
    Nasi Campur
  • This is also a favorite dish of ours, because it is very like the richness of the signature rice, especially to comfort the hunger and thirst of the stomach. Like the signature rice, each restaurant has its own characteristics. Usually in meat, there will be chicken or satay, served with orange juice, green beans, fried soy beans, eggs and special hot sauce. Awesome!
  • Fruit Salad (Rujak)
  • This is one of the special foods of the Balinese flavor. Usually hawkers slice mangoes, pineapples and papayas, and then add special hot sauce to make a salad. Fruit and spicy sauce, it is a wonderful taste. I heard that it is very effective in losing weight!
  • Fried noodles (Mie Goreng)
  • Mie is the face, Goreng is the meaning of the stir-fry. It is usually made from instant noodles, with coconut milk or a little spicy sauce. A conscience will add a scrambled egg to it, or even a string of satay. Usually the cake is attached. People, sometimes it is inevitable to miss the taste of instant noodles, this time the noodles are correct. The same can be said, Nasi Goreng is the meaning of fried rice!

  • This is a specialty of Bali. Many morning and night markets sell roast suckling pig rice. However, for the Balinese, the best roast suckling pig in the lbu Oka near the Ubud Palace, filled with pig blood, pork, oily crispy pig skin roast suckling pig rice, must hold by hand Eating is a fun!
  • Breakfast Muffin (Pancake)
  • This is certainly not a local Balinese meal. But whether you live in a hotel or a big hotel, the most common breakfast is almost a muffin. Usually they will put bananas in them, and the Kung Fu point is like the restaurant, first coloring, sprinkling coconut silk, and then adding a little seasonal fruit. A beautiful day is here!
  • Roast Duck (Crispy Duck)
  • Another Bali flavor column. The best place to taste is Bebek Bengil, a dirty duck restaurant in Ubud. But in fact, the most orthodox duck meal in Bali is the Bebek Betutu, the banana leaf smoked duck that was booked the day before. The former is crispy and delicious, and the latter is almost imported. Also don't miss it!
  • Bali Fruit (Fruit)
  • The common fruits in Bali are in addition to the Jack Fruit, the durian, the Rambutan, the lychee, and the black hard-shelled mangosteen, Langsat.
  • Markisa: It is a kind of fruit with a surface like a passion fruit, but it tastes like a longan. Very sweet and juicy, not sour, very delicious.

  • Dirty Duck Restaurant
  • Features dirty ducks (in fact, smoked duck, smoke duck). Walking into the restaurant, people feel that its beauty lies not only in the rice fields, but also in the ubiquitous exquisite water features, the blooming trees, the traditional music and the lazy soft couch. All of this makes people feel that the so-called sentiment is what this means.
  • In Bali, the price of a good hotel is between US$8 and US$30 per person, and meals range from US$20 to US$70. Dining at a restaurant outside the hotel can save about 60% to 80%. The most economical is some open-air stalls that can be served for a few thousand rupees. [1][3]

Dietary attention[edit]

  • Remember not to eat the food on the stalls, because those foods have been bitten by mosquitoes, and they have “experienced” the wind and the sun, which is extremely unsanitary. Should be eaten in a regular restaurant. [1][3]

Best time[edit]

  • One month after the end of the rainy season (April) is the hottest season in Bali, and it is cooler from May to September (this is the best season to travel to Bali). The weather conditions in the Balinese region are mostly sunny and hot, except for the slightly lower temperatures in the central mountainous areas and higher temperatures in the seaside areas.

On June 10, 2015, Indonesia officially implemented visa-free policies for tourists from 30 countries including China. In the future, mainland Chinese tourists can stay in Indonesia for no more than 30 days without a visa.

Currency[edit]

  • beach
    Most of Bali uses rupees and US dollars, and the local renminbi for the purchase of souvenirs is generally also common. One dollar can be exchanged for 12000Rp (April 2013) and one RMB can be exchanged for 2000Rp (August 2014). Generally, the US dollar and the renminbi are exchanged with the tour guide for the rupee, and the exchange rate is almost the same.
  • Note that the banknotes must be intact, and the local banknotes are not wrinkled, worn and stained. The exchange rates for the old and new versions of the US dollar vary greatly. Exchange rates for airports, hotels and markets vary widely. The exchange rate at the airport is very low. It is recommended to carry the US dollar on the body, then go to the island and replace it with the official currency shield. There are many places for currency exchange, such as the most direct airports, hotels, banks and some higher-level restaurants, as well as some sightseeing spots and exchange points. [1][3]

Folk Culture[edit]

Faith[edit]

  • Bali Island
    Due to the influence of Indian culture and religion in history, most of the residents believe in Hinduism and are the only places in Indonesia that believe in Hinduism. But the Hinduism here is not the same as the Hinduism in India. It is a combination of Hindu teachings and Balinese customs, called Bali Hinduism. Residents mainly worship the three gods (Brazil, Vishnu, Shiva) and Buddhism's Sakyamuni, and also worship the sun god, water god, fire god, Fengshen and so on. There are temples in the homes of the believers. The family consists of temples with temples and village temples. There are more than 125, 000 temples on the island. Therefore, the island has the reputation of “the island of thousands of temples”. The most famous temple in the temple is the Baishaji Mausoleum, which has a thousand-year-old history. The mausoleum was built on the slopes of the Agung volcano called the “navel of the world” to dedicate the volcanic god of this intermittent eruption. The hierarchical stone sculpture of the Mausoleum is similar to the Angkor Wat in Cambodia. [1][3]

Characteristic customs[edit]

  • Bali
    Bali is not only beautiful in its natural scenery, but also rich in its cultural and social customs. The Balinese classical dance is elegant and unique, and it has a unique position in the world of dance art. It is also a vivid flower in the Indonesian national dance. Among them, the lion and sword dance are the most representative.
  • Bali's carvings (wood carvings, stone carvings), paintings and handicrafts are also known for their exquisite craftsmanship and unique style. Exquisite statues and reliefs of wood and stone can be seen everywhere on the island. Therefore, the island has the reputation of “the island of art”. Mas is the island’s famous woodcarving centre. Bali's paintings are unique, mostly painted on burlap or white canvas with glue and mineral pigments. The theme is based on pastoral scenery and people's living customs, with a strong local color. Therefore, Bali is known as the "island of poetry" and "the Greek of the East." Located in the middle of the island, Bird Mu is a painting center, which houses many historical relics and huge paintings.
  • In the vicinity of the bird, there is a square-shaped ancient cave, the elephant cave. The depth of the cave is only two or three meters. The cave is filled with vivid statues. There are four famous stone statues on the Kawei Mountain, and five other gods are placed in front of the big stone statue. On the mountainside, there is a pale Brazilian cold presidential palace.
  • A statue of Buddha in the Elephant Cave Temple in Bali.
  • There are nearly 200 religious festivals held by Balinese residents every year. Every festival, songs and dances are mixed. Due to the variety of styles in Bali, the scenery is very beautiful. Therefore, it also enjoys a variety of other names, such as "Island of the Gods", "Island of the Devil", "Romans Island", "Island of the Isles", "Island of Paradise", "Island of Magic" and so on. In the natural sciences, in 1869, the biologist Wallace also discovered that Bali is the "tip" of the Asian continent. The typical Asian animals are distributed so far, and in the east it is only separated by the strait of Lombok, which is less than 40 kilometers wide. The animal is of the Oceania species. So, Bali is
    Bali
    A famous tourist attraction.
  • Due to the deep religious atmosphere, almost all cultures in Bali are related to religion from form to content, and a representative introduction is made.
  • Religion : There are many ways to understand religion. The most intuitive way is to look at the temple. There are many temples on Bali, and it is said that there are more than 10, 000. Many people go to Bali to see the temple and go to the Tanah Lot (TANAHOT). It is said that Bali has a volcanic eruption (three active volcanoes on the island, Batu, Pekin Mani, Agung). One of the seven temples was built, and it is famous for its combination with the land due to its rising tide. In fact, the history of the Temple of the Holy Spring is more than 700 years old, and there is a palace of Sukarno on the hill next to it. In addition, the Bukitsa Temple, located next to the Agung volcano (the holy sacred mountain of Bali, also the center of the universe), is known as the mother of the temple and is the representative of the temple on Bali.
  • Music: Bamboo percussion is heard every day in a Bali hotel, but this is not a complete Balinese music. Gamalan music fusion copper music, drum music, bow string music, it is said that there are Chinese ancient music!
  • Shadow Play: Piwayang, the most representative form of entertainment, the story is taken from the two epics of Hinduism, with Ramayana. Views can also have a deeper understanding of their religious stories.
  • Dance: It is represented by two kinds of tribute and Baron. It is similar to our distinction between the white spring snow and the lower Liba people. It is still the subject of Ramayana. The dance movement is very monotonous and is mainly expressed by hand and eyes.
    Bali landscape
  • Engraving: Stone carving is mainly concentrated in BATUBULAN, wood carving is in Mas (MAS), silverware is in Jelu (CELU), among which wood carving is the most famous, mainly the village is precious (mostly sandalwood, ebony) Wood, and teak) are mostly mythical characters.
  • Painting: Mainly in Ubud (UBUD), the ARMA Art Museum is very beautiful, worth a visit, and the Naga Art Museum has many treasures. The art of painting in Bali has a profound influence on the development of the world's painting art, such as the impression master Gauguin, and the Mayor of Belgium, who came to the island in 1932, stayed and married the locals, his with Bali The style of the work caused a great response in the West.
  • Handmade: The handicrafts of Bali are very distinctive in weaving and batik. Maybe many people think that there are many batik in China.
    Batik
    It’s not surprising, but Bali’s “Rencinco” is woven from the world’s only latitude and longitude dyeing. It takes a few years for a piece of clothing, but it’s rarely seen. It’s an identity person. Only worn during major sacrifices.
  • In the middle of the island, there are famous monkey temples in the middle of the island. Monkeys are in groups. There is a beautiful Lake Biduku in the north. The famous Jingtai Mani has a cool climate, so you can look forward to the volcanic Badu volcano that peaks in the whole year. The Batu Lake under the Badu Mountain is also known for its beautiful scenery. The Giron Palace in the southeastern part of the island is home to the famous ancient Balinese court. The palace is magnificent and has a moat on all sides. The roof is painted with portraits of prisoners. Tanah Le, on the southwest coast of the island, has temples built on the shore highlands. Because of the erosion of the waves for many years, the area is 25 meters away from the island, forming an island. When the tide rises, Zhou Yu seems to sink in the waves, like water. palace.
  • Bali
    Balinese people are philosophers of life, work hard at work, eat joyfully during meals, sleep peacefully while sleeping, live in peace with all things, and live every minute, life is naturally happy, and life is of course happy. The cliché of "money is not omnipotent" is to say that it is a idiom that is only a sentence, and that everything is measured by the value of money. It is the standard of humanity.
  • Banjar autonomous peace
  • Balinese people not only have their own set of cognitions in religion, but also have a different version of the official management.
  • Although the government has clearly defined the administrative system in the county and city villages, it is "Banjar" that really promotes the operation. "Banjar" is a small unit that is one level below the "village". It consists of a hundred households and belongs to the autonomous organization of Bali. It is not on the files of government agencies, from the wedding and funeral celebration of each household to the reward and punishment of individual behavior., through the monthly monthly meeting resolutions. The rigorous autonomous organization makes the households speak like each other, and the dogs and dogs meet to form a strong moral binding force. Therefore, although Bali is as beautiful as a paradise, it is impossible for you to have a unique hermit life.
  • Aristocratic civilians sit flat
  • Originating from the religious class system, it exists in Bali, but like the Balinese people's religious attitude, the Balinese people who are all in harmony with the class system are not as harsh and serious as the Indians, in Bali 4 The class is not only on the same level, but the words are not limited to high-level words or low-level words. With the penetration of economic power, the class title that was previously listed on the business card has gradually been replaced by the proud academic experience. However, entry into the country is the basic common sense. These four classes still have to be kept in mind, so as not to miss the taboos in special occasions such as sacrifices and other functions that focus on identity.
  • Class name I male title I female title
  • Brahmana Priest I da Bagus I da Ayu
  • Ksatriya Noble I Cokorda I da Cokorda
  • Waisya Craftsman I Dewa I Desah
  • Sudra (Jaba civilian) I No I
  • 沧海桑田 does not change color
  • The Balinese people do not ask their own family members, and the foreign visitors are indifferent. The pure and easy-going attitude makes Bali a resting place for people to trust and place their hearts. What is valuable is that Bali receives millions of visitors a year, but it still does not change its color. The Bohai Sea is still the Bohai Sea, and the Sangtian is still Sangtian.
  • The rules of bathing in the morning and evening and the habit of bathing have not changed for a hundred years. Although the tourists are holding the V8 group, the Balinese people still seem to have their own days, and the terraces you have seen are still waiting for you to return today. Only rice and grass varieties. More than 90% of Bali's farming area has been replanted with new varieties. Rapid growth and strong disease resistance are the new varieties to capture Bali's ability, but excessive use of pesticides is the price paid by the Balinese people, and the ecological changes lead to frogs and squids. The number is sharply reduced. The frog is the main theme of the Bali Serenade. Will one of the familiar movements be changed one day? The Balinese people have begun to ponder over this issue.
  • Work hard and concentrate
  • Happy days are the attitude of the Balinese people, but this does not mean slackness. In fact, the genius is bright, the men of Bali are working hard under the fields, and the women’s homes are cleaning up the preparations to take care of the animals, waiting for the sun to rise and the earth to change. When the heat is over, the men will pause their work and return home to look at their beloved cockfighting. At this time, the sleepy tourists have just left the door and saw the Barry men who are holding the cock and chatting in the street, and they are considered to be a group of people. The lazy person who produced it, over time, this unfair prejudice has become a negative impression of Balinese men passing through the world, as if the delightful terraced fields grew out of their own.
  • In fact, the Balinese men are very honest, taking care of the work they do, and they are dedicated to keeping pet cockfighting. Their expectations for cockfighting are all placed on the festival of sacrifices, which is a recognized occasion for betting. The cockfighting on the court was tied with a sharp blade. After a burst of dust and chicken feathers, the winner was judged, the winner received the gambling and the dying chicken, the gambling was put into the purse, and the dead chicken was on the table.
  • Bali cremation ceremony
  • Balinese cremation ceremony: The oxen-type coffin represents status and identity and can only be enjoyed by nobles and monks.
  • The flames turned the offerings together with the coffins into ashes, and people wished the souls of the deceased to sublimate at this moment.
  • Under the influence of religious beliefs, Balinese people have their own understanding of death. Their custom is to celebrate death. After the death of the Balinese, cremation is carried out according to custom, and the souls of the undead who are not cremation are filthy and will bring disaster to people. If the cremation is not held for the deceased for a certain period of time, the soul of the deceased cannot rise to the sky and become the devil of the night. Therefore, the cremation ceremony here is very grand and one of the wonders on Bali. The cremation was held on the 42nd day after the death of the people, because the Balinese believe that after the death of the person, the soul will take 42 days to leave the body. Before the cremation, the body should be treated. First, the body is soaked with liquid made from various spices, then wrapped in cloth and placed in a bamboo basket. One day before the cremation, the relatives of the deceased wear the most beautiful costumes. The men also need to wear swords, gather together to carry out the parade, and hold a grand cultural evening in the evening, perform a pipa, dance a variety of joyful dances, people singing and dancing waiting for the next day.
  • On the day of cremation, under the accompaniment of music, the nearby men rushed to pick up the body, and each of the women brought a bottle from the neighboring temple.
    Bali
    The holy water that comes, and a group of live chickens that lead the soul of the deceased, are placed in front of the funeral. The priests prayed and issued the bow. The funeral lined up. The priests held the red crown and guided the body. The team had to bend the course to avoid the evil spirits road. Entering the crematorium, the close relatives of the deceased first cut the shroud, the priest climbed the platform of the bamboo tower, read the prayers aloud, and sprinkled many ancient money on it, which was a bribe to the ransom of the god of death, and the holy water that the women would bring On the corpse, the bottle of Sheng Sheng Shui was crushed. Then, the body was moved into the animal-shaped raft, and when night fell, it began to set fire to the fire. Under the light of the fire, the celebration ceremony began, the band played music, and the audience began to revel. One of the main activities is the tug-of-war competition. The two sides compete for the coffin with the body, the angel on the one hand and the demon on the other. The two sides compete for the soul of the deceased. There are many repetitions, and finally the angel victory. All activities run through the booze and sing. The family of the deceased in the entire funeral was not sad. The Balinese believe that if you are too sad, it will hinder the soul of the deceased from ascending to heaven. The body gradually became ashes, and the people watching it gradually dispersed. The relatives packed up the ashes and placed them in the coconut shell. Under the priest's prayer, throw the ashes into the sea. The entire funeral was declared over.
  • The grand cremation ceremony is very expensive, sometimes as high as tens of thousands or even millions of yuan. 12 years ago, the king of Ji'anya District died, and the funeral cost up to 5 million US dollars. Large-scale cremation often has thousands of people to carry heavy bamboo towers and coffins. The height of the bamboo tower depends on the identity of the deceased. Some are as high as 20 meters, 11 to 2, and low to 3 or 4. The coffin is in the shape of an animal. The coffin of the monks and the rich is carved into a cow shape, the warrior is a flying lion, and the ordinary person is half-fish-shaped. The size of the tower-shaped bamboo frame and the grandeur of the ceremony are all based on the identity, status and financial resources of the mourner. However, the high cost of the funeral can not be afforded by many people. Therefore, the locals who are financially strapped will first bury their deceased family members. When they have enough money and have a good time, they will dig up the body and hold a cremation. This waiting time may be two to three years or more.
  • In Bali, every 10 years or so, a large-scale collective cremation will be held, and everyone will share the cost. At this time, the Balinese people cleaned up all the tombs on the island, concentrating all the bodies and cheekbones, and letting those restless souls rest in peace.
  • Balinese language
  • Bahasa Indonesia is the official language of Indonesia and Bali, while Bahasa Bali is the dialect of the local people. English is also widely used, especially in lively sightseeing areas, where English is the most commonly used language. In addition, Dutch, German, French, Japanese and Chinese are also used in some places. In particular, the number of tourists visiting Bali in mainland China and Taiwan has increased rapidly in recent years, and as a result, there are many businesses with quick brains. The restaurant or the hawkers in the sightseeing area have also begun to learn Chinese and Ho-Chan. Because there are many old overseas Chinese who immigrated from southern Anhui, they often speak Minnan and Chinese. A little bit of the gap, but communication is absolutely no problem. Often in the sightseeing area, you will hear and say: "The circle of the 10, 000th...the yiyi (all 10, 000)!" "How much?" The hawker can't help but feel more cordial and stop. Talk to it... However, when you stop, it actually means that a large group of hawkers are coming around to "trade" with you! Haha... At this time, you have to use some methods to get away. [1][3]

Travel guide[edit]

  • Bali is a veritable honeymoon and holiday destination. The entire itinerary should be based on leisure and vacation, with tropical beaches and cultural and artistic landscapes being its biggest selling point. For all friends who are within one week of the trip, please refer to the following suggestions to make a choice:
  • As a traditional cultural and artistic center, Ubud is far from the beach and is located in the hinterland of Bali. Definitely worth living, riding a bicycle, and taking a casual look. Tegallalang, famous for its terraced scenery and handicrafts, is located near Ubud. It is more convenient to choose Ubud as the starting point for rafting or tropical jungle trekking. From low-cost Guest Houses to upscale luxury villas, there are plenty of hotels to choose from in Ubud. If the budget is sufficient, of course, the villa with private pool is preferred. Kayumanis Ubud, Pita Maha, Maya Ubud, Kajane Mua Ubud are more popular online. Since the Banyan tree has been withdrawn from business, Kamandalu Resort is in an embarrassing situation of disrepair and is not worth recommending. If the budget is limited, you can choose a homestay featuring idyllic scenery. Tegal Sari and Green Field are more popular online. Ubud's spa is highly recommended, especially if you choose to enjoy it in an open natural setting. SPA HATI has a high popularity. The top enjoyment is the Kirana Spa, which is operated by the Shiseido of Japan and the royal family of the Royal Pita Maha.
  • Kuta is the second recommended stopover. The main reason is that Kuta beach is a unique surfing place in Southeast Asia. In addition to the body shape of the handsome men and women in various countries, you can also see many local people enjoying the gift of nature in the sunset on the beach. The famous beaches of other Southeast Asian islands often only see tourists. Downtown Kuta is also a tourist shopping and entertainment center in Bali, centering on the island's main shopping mall. In the evening, all kinds of nightclubs all over Kuta Street are the world of young people. Living in Kuta, you should arrange more outdoor activities such as surfing, shopping, spa, sampling local cuisine and clubbing. So it is recommended to choose an affordable hotel to sleep, and it is not wise to choose a luxury villa. The hotel next to Kuta beach (Hard Rock, etc.) is separated from the beach by a road (like the Patong beach in Phuket), so you don't have to choose an expensive sea view.
  • 1
    Lovina beach, less tourists. You can rent a boat to go out to see the dolphins, or arrange a snorkeling trip to Nusa Menjangan. In comparison, this should be the best place for Bali to see corals and tropical fish. Lovina is located in the northern part of Bali and it takes 3.5 hours to get to the airport, so it should be arranged in the middle of the trip to avoid the tight schedule of the airport. Arranging for the end of a day trip to Baikudu is a good idea to save special transportation costs. The return trip can take a look at the Kintamani volcano.
  • Beach hotels in Nusa Dua, if you must live, you should choose the best hotel. Ayodya Resort Bali, Kayumanis Nusa Dua, Laguna are all recommended. Because the main activity here is to soak the hotel, the hotel's garden, pool, dining, beach view and daze facilities should be considered first. Personally, it is still unwise to choose villa in Nusa Dua. Imagine that you are lying next to a private pool next to the beach, and the people on the beach are basking in the same sun, watching the same scenery, blowing the same wind, but paying them several times more dollars. What's more, tourists who walk from time to time, especially those curious Oriental faces with cameras, will make you even more disappointed. (There is a photo below, the private pool suite on the westin beach, specially decorated tropical plants, still can not stop the envious and curious eyes of passers-by). Nusa Dua’s dining options are high, and you can take a walk outside the Nusa Dua gate at dusk, eat dinner or buy fruit and water. Westin and Laguna are very close to the gates of Nusa Dua and walk for about 20 minutes. Finally, I still insist on my suggestion: For those who have been to the Maldives, Nusa Dua hotels do not have to be arranged during the trip. Whether it's the resort's resort atmosphere or the beach, the Maldives will win.
  • The tourism industry in Bali began to develop on a large scale after the opening of the Ngurah Rai International Airport in 1969. Shanu and Kuta became tourist attractions; in the 1980s, high-end resorts began to develop in Nusa Dua; in the 1990s, the wave of development It began to expand to the north and south of Kuta, ranging from Seminyak, Legian, and Jimbaran to the coastal areas, forming a vast tourist area. The northern part of Seminyak is home to the famous Tanah Lot Temple. After the bombings in Sanu and Kuta, the authorities took active measures against public security and removed some street vendors.
  • The quality of the waves on the coast of southern Bali is good, and many surfers from all over the world have visited each other and become a surfing spot. Many people who depend on the surf industry for their livelihood, including surf shops and surf instructors, and even professional surfers sponsored by surfers have increased.
  • Since 2012, the island has also become popular with funny flashes. Even though the average temperature is higher than 24 degrees throughout the year, there are still flash coats with large coats, masks, and sunglasses, which are flashing in the downtown area. It has caused many tourists to compete for imitation, which is another fashion trend in Bali. [1][3]

TOP 10 BALI (TRAVELLERS PARADISE)

00:00 Now I'm going to let you in on a little
00:01 secret here the hidden gem of Southeast
00:04 Asia is not here
00:08 Bali is probably the most visited place
00:11 in all of Southeast Asia but there is a
00:12 reason behind the madness and I'm here
00:15 to show you why you need to book your
00:16 next tickets Bali my name is Christian
00:18 LeBlanc and I'm a travel blogger from
00:20 Canada I've been making video for the
00:22 past two years across Southeast Asia
00:24 and I've probably spent about three
00:26 months of it in Indonesia now without
00:28 further ado let's hop into the video
00:30 starting with number ten seminyak it's
00:33 probably the most developed part of Bali
00:36 staying in an incredible villa just like
00:38 you see here could literally cost you
00:40 just as much as staying in a course star
00:42 hotel in a western country oh wow oh my
00:46 god here we are how nice is this money
00:53 just goes so much further here while I
00:56 don't rank seminyak high for the
00:58 adventure factor it definitely has a lot
01:00 to offer if you're just looking to put
01:02 your feet up enjoy some luxury living
01:04 but one of the incredible things about
01:06 Bali is the living cost is much more
01:08 affordable it is home to many resorts
01:11 incredible fine dining and excellent
01:13 nightlife and speaking of good food
01:15 Motel Mexico la is a great place for
01:17 nightlife and food but beware it is
01:20 quite expensive number 9 is good moon
01:23 shall we now I probably not saying it
01:25 right but this is an incredible temple
01:28 built into a hillside the environment is
01:30 in the lush green forest of Bali and
01:32 there's something very unique about
01:34 being here you truly feel like you're
01:36 experiencing some of Ali's history the
01:38 entire complex was actually built in the
01:40 11th century as a massive tombstone for
01:43 the king and his family the incredible
01:45 tombstone is surrounded by a beautiful
01:47 rice terrace it's definitely worth
01:49 exploring
01:50 next up on the list is jimbaran
01:52 somewhere I had one of the most
01:54 remarkable sunsets of my entire life
01:56 jibraan can also be quite touristy
01:58 there's a lot of people to go here to
02:00 enjoy the sunset enjoy some fresh
02:02 seafood but that's not necessarily a bad
02:04 thing you can definitely expect to
02:06 compete with some crowds but you'll have
02:08 a remarkable night with some great food
02:10 we had a delicious
02:12 TRAI seafood at one of the restaurants
02:14 here and there's many to choose from
02:15 Bali is filled with incredible
02:18 waterfalls but the two that stood out
02:19 the most to me are Saguna Gong and
02:22 Padang
02:23 gulia these two waterfalls are an
02:25 incredible day trip to good again is
02:27 probably the most visited of all the
02:29 waterfalls but I'm actually sharing with
02:31 you a little secret here Padang gulia is
02:34 by far one of the most unknown
02:36 waterfalls that is worth visiting in
02:38 Bali this is truly a local secret and a
02:41 lawful blonde find although it's a
02:43 little smaller than to gonna gun it is
02:45 no less magical and it is definitely a
02:48 photographer's dream you don't have to
02:50 compete with the crowds and you still
02:51 get a magical scene if you're traveling
02:53 for photography purposes this little
02:56 Balinese gate here is actually a very
02:58 popular photography destination there's
03:00 Balinese gates just like this one here
03:02 all over the island but this one is in
03:04 my opinion the most iconic this gate
03:06 here is actually kind of on the way back
03:08 from Padang gulia so they can definitely
03:10 be mixed into a day trip together if
03:12 you're looking for someone to show you
03:13 around Bali I highly recommend Bali
03:15 customized towards my friend Pancho has
03:17 showed us around a couple of times and
03:19 he's the best tour guide I've ever had
03:21 keeping on the theme of the Balinese
03:23 jungle we are now going into the depths
03:25 this is ubud ubud is a really cool kind
03:28 of yogi easygoing town that has a very
03:32 unique Balinese culture to it it's
03:34 filled with local markets coffee shops
03:36 incredible restaurants high-end hotels
03:38 and even low end hotels so it fits all
03:40 budgets ubud is pretty much a must visit
03:43 place if you're coming to Bali it
03:45 definitely is one of the more popular
03:46 tourist attraction so it does get busy
03:49 if you're looking for a fun day trip one
03:51 of the things you can do is the food
03:52 monkey jungle although a bit of a
03:54 tourist wrap it is quite fun to be able
03:56 to see all those monkeys hanging out
03:58 also worth noting if you're looking to
04:00 do a little interior decorating with
04:02 your house who wood is full of these
04:04 local craft shops the thing that I love
04:06 most about ubud is that once you get out
04:08 of the proper town area there's some
04:10 incredibly relaxing hotels or villas
04:13 that you can stay in we stayed in one
04:15 place that was called a glamping Resort
04:17 and essentially we felt like we were in
04:19 the middle of the jungle but with a
04:21 comfort of nice amenities and great food
04:24 cinnamon apparently it has some of the
04:26 best uploading speeds in all of good
04:28 internet could be very challenging at
04:30 I'm compelled Atlanta one thing I will
04:32 definitely caution you on though is that
04:34 ubud is surrounded by rice paddies and
04:36 rice paddies are inhabited by insects I
04:39 don't know if you can see this but look
04:41 at this thing on our window oh my god
04:45 it's literally just ate them off it has
04:48 it in its mouth living in the world
04:54 they're building a nest in my room
04:56 family met as soon as night struck there
05:00 was a couple villas we stayed in where
05:01 the open concept became our worst
05:03 nightmare just make sure you're prepared
05:05 because you know it might just bug some
05:08 people we are now halfway number five
05:12 it's actually a place that's not in Bali
05:14 but it's close enough I thought I would
05:16 include it these are the gili islands
05:18 I've visited countless islands in my
05:20 life and the ghillies are some of my
05:22 favorites there's simply nothing more
05:24 laid-back there are no cars here there
05:26 is only pedal bike that basically gives
05:29 you an idea of the pace on the island
05:31 everything is very slow-moving
05:33 everything is very relaxed and you can
05:35 stay in fairly nice accommodation the
05:38 budget backpacker accommodation is
05:39 basically the whole spectrum but
05:41 definitely expect to spend more money on
05:43 accommodation on beer and on food
05:46 everything will be about twice the price
05:48 if not more the ghillies actually has
05:51 surprisingly great nightlife as well
05:53 which is something I wasn't counting on
05:54 but definitely enjoyed a lot of people
05:56 will come here with the intention of
05:58 staying a day or two and end up staying
05:59 a full week you can definitely find
06:01 yourself getting in a bit of the
06:03 nightlife routine they actually have
06:04 some snorkeling tours and they're only
06:07 like 5 or 10 bucks they're super
06:09 affordable you're on a boat for half the
06:11 day they give you a snorkel goggles and
06:13 even bring you to a place where you can
06:15 get some food now that's pretty much
06:16 where they make most their money because
06:18 there is a markup on the food but it's
06:20 totally worth the day trip even if the
06:22 snorkeling was very mediocre at best
06:24 it's a great way to meet people and it
06:26 often leads to a great night out of
06:28 course one of the main activities of
06:30 being in the gili islands is simply
06:32 sitting on a recliner chair and
06:34 a beer the beer of choice in Indonesia
06:36 is called the bintang and I must say it
06:38 is some of my favorite beer
06:40 now the next on the list is kuta and
06:43 kuta is actually a place that has very
06:45 mixed reviews depending on who you talk
06:47 to some people will say they loved it
06:49 some people will say they hated it tons
06:51 of people come here to party get cheap
06:54 food cheap drinks essentially it's the
06:56 most westernized part of Bali and it's
06:58 pretty much the nightlife capital of the
07:00 island this is definitely a place that a
07:01 lot of backpackers like to come but
07:03 there are high-end budget people that
07:05 stay here in the nicer hotels and
07:06 resorts it has pretty much everything
07:08 for every budget if you're just wanting
07:11 to get into surfing and you're looking
07:12 for a great beginners place pooja
07:14 actually has a beach that's fantastic
07:16 for that the waves are very manageable
07:18 and you can pretty much go down to the
07:20 beach and rent the surfboard on any
07:22 single given day there's no security
07:24 deposit no insurance forms to fill out
07:26 you simply give a guy like 5 bucks he
07:28 lends you a surfboard and you're off now
07:30 if you're one of those people that need
07:31 your Starbucks fix you won't have a hard
07:33 time finding one in kuta because it has
07:35 everything from Starbucks McDonald's and
07:37 pretty much every other popular
07:39 restaurant chain similar to seminyak I
07:41 give it about a zero on the adventure
07:42 scale but if you're just looking to
07:44 chill out enjoy an affordable cost of
07:46 living from accommodation to food then
07:48 kuta could be your place now number four
07:50 is somewhere I have never been before
07:52 this is Lulu a2 this is a place that
07:55 people absolutely rave about Lulu Wong
07:57 who isn't a very children tip of Bali
07:59 and one of the best things about it is
08:01 that you have a much quieter environment
08:03 but you still have amazing villas hotels
08:06 restaurants and some of them are even
08:08 built on the side of a cliff there's a
08:10 few very iconic sites here including
08:12 cliffside temples and I highly recommend
08:15 you add to the Watson fearless the
08:17 footage you see here is not Allah watu
08:19 but it gives you a bit of a feel for the
08:21 area I will be going to use a lot to
08:22 thing when I go back to quality in like
08:25 two weeks now number two on the list is
08:27 a place called Kangoo and Kangoo or
08:29 Changu depending on how you want to
08:31 pronounce it is definitely one of my
08:33 most favorite developed areas in Bali
08:36 it's not off the beaten path but it has
08:38 enough of a quiet side that you feel
08:40 like you're outside of the busyness of
08:42 Bali and yet you have a nice surf town
08:44 feel
08:45 it there's a lot of surf shops because
08:46 this is one of the best places to catch
08:48 the great waves that hit Bali I tried it
08:51 as a beginner and I got destroyed but I
08:53 will not discourage you from trying it
08:55 find everything from entry-level to
08:57 expensive villas and hotels similar to
09:00 GU Buddha in the sense it has kind of a
09:02 laid-back feel to it it's very chilled
09:04 out it's the kind of place where you've
09:05 got those really hipstery trendy coffee
09:08 shops and restaurants and other Beach
09:10 town deals to it if you're looking for
09:12 what I believe is one of the best places
09:14 to go out in Kangoo I went out to Old
09:16 Men and yes that sounds really weird but
09:19 that's probably the most popular and
09:21 it's right near the ocean so the after
09:23 party normally becomes the beach and my
09:25 number one recommendation of Bali is
09:29 really that attempt at a drumroll you've
09:32 already seen a little text below that
09:34 kind of gave it away but Nusa Penida
09:36 this right here is the hidden gem of
09:39 Bali and it might not be staying that
09:42 way for long I was there about a year
09:43 and a half ago before anyone was talking
09:45 about it and this place dropped my jaw
09:49 within about a 45 minute ferry off the
09:51 mainland of Bali we arrived this place
09:54 is something out of a dream it's been
09:56 over a year since I've been there and
09:58 things have definitely changed
10:00 first off going to Nusa Penida from when
10:02 I laughs experienced it it had a bit of
10:04 a challenge to it you're definitely
10:05 going to want to hire it's hard to show
10:07 you around for the day and I would
10:09 recommend doing two days the roads are
10:11 very rough slightly undeveloped and
10:13 quite mountainous you can definitely try
10:15 to rent a scooter but this is one of the
10:17 few places where I think it does make
10:19 sense to have a drug there are two very
10:21 notable lookout points this one right
10:23 here that basically looks like a
10:25 dinosaur head and on the other side of
10:27 yousuf Vita there's this one right here
10:30 staying in Nusa Penida
10:31 will definitely cost you a little bit
10:33 more than the mainland because it's not
10:34 overly developed but it is very
10:36 up-and-coming so be ready for more devel
10:39 and I highly recommend you get here as
10:41 soon as possible because this might not
10:42 be the same story in five years and
10:44 these viewpoints might become a whole
10:46 lot busier accommodations range from
10:49 budget to medium scale I don't believe
10:52 there's anything to high-end on the
10:53 island but again that could quickly
10:55 change that has been my top 10 guys I
