Bali is well-known as a destination for families. Whether it’s playing on the beach, soaking in the sun or just splashing around in the private pool of a villa, Bali is awesome for families who just want to chill out.
When you’ve had enough of lying around the pool, there are plenty of shops where you and the kids can spend a few dollars. Fortunately, the exchange rate is pretty favourable to travellers from most countries. Actually, Bali is a great place to shop for kids clothing, homewares and gifts.
Bali For Kids
For families looking for a cultural experience, Bali has beautiful temples to visit. There are traditional arts and crafts that you can go out and enjoy with your kids all day long. And plenty of traditional cooking schools. In the evenings, most restaurants put on fire dancing, which never fails to entertain the kids.
Here are some things to do in Bali with your kids.
The Waterbom Bali-Kuta
The Waterbom at Bali offers thrills for the kids while you have a nice rest in the sun. Rent a gazebo and laze in it while you watch your kids play all day long. There are many other activities that take place at the Waterbom, such as traditional dances and performances.
Treetop adventure park
This jungle park is located in the Bedugul botanical gardens. This park offers a great experience as it has small circuits for younger kids, which offers enough of an adventure they will absolutely love. But it also has swings that offer fun for teenagers and adults. Try tightrope walking for a thrill. You’ll be amazed how easy it is to walk on the rope (of course, there are safety nets to catch you if you fall!).
Bali Bird Park
A Bali Bird Park trip is the best option for nature lovers looking for a relaxing day away from the beach. The park is a nirvana for exotic birds, with over 200 bird species from all over the world. The kids will enjoy getting close to the birds and taking photos. Here you will also find a reptile park with huge snakes and Indonesia’s famous komodo dragons.
This is a place where kids will definitely have lots of fun. Check out the lions and the elephants or go on a night time safari, when the nocturnal animals come to life. You don’t have to go to the zoo to see monkeys. They’re everywhere in Bali. But who doesn’t love a zoo?
