Bali tours for those who want to experience the best of Bali

Escape To Ubud

Ubud, popularly known as the cultural hub of Bali, has a mixture of new and old. Ubud is a lovely spot to visit with family and friends. The great thing about Ubod is there’s lots to do in a small area. From yoga retreats to visiting temples and from wandering around the town to learning how to paint. There’s plenty to offer visitors looking for an immersive holiday. Here are some ideas:

Swing ride over Ayung River 

Zen Hideaway is located about a 20-minute drive from the centre of Ubud. It’s in a traditional Balinese village where you can stay and have a local experience.

There are lovely views of a mini waterfall, the Ayung River, Mount Ayung and terraced rice fields. However, the thing that will amaze and delight is the swing hanging at the top of a hill between the coconut trees.

The thrilling swing ride offers breathtaking views of the Ayung River and the jungle from above.

Zen also has a private walking trail down to the waterfall and river, where you can relax and swim.

During your stay, you’ll be right in the centre of local activities like dancing, farming and the locals love visitors.

Adventurous River Rafting

It can be an unforgettable experience to ride the Ayung River.  Not only is the river a the source of life for the Balinese people, it also offers adventurous rafting experiences.

The river has 45 rapids to keep you busy and an Ayung River rafting experience is a blast. There are several rafting companies, like Bali Adventure Rafting, which provide you with safety gear and an experienced guide.

Yes, you’ll need to wear a helmet and life jacket!  Most trips are around 10km and take about two hours. The adventure is short and fun and quite challenging.

At the end of the river, the view is amazingly peaceful as you glide past rice fields and forest.

Paradise Ubud

Paradise Ubud is a raw food restaurant in Ubud that serves vegetarian and vegan cuisine at very reasonable prices.

What’s more, it has the world’s first organic vegan cinema experience. You can watch a movie in their in-house cinema too. This cinema is equipped with world-class facilities and seats 150 people.

It’s a great way to while away a rainy day or to entertain the kids away from the beach.

Bali for kids

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. And 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.

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 of the places that you can visit with your kids in Bali.

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 the traditional dances and performances.

Tree top 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.

Bali Zoo

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?
