How To Live A Month In Bali! (Part 2)

Central & Southern Bali

Mark and I ended up spending two weeks in this area of Bali. It is completely different from the rural Northern region, which doesn’t cater heavily to tourists. It will be a must to book scooters to travel around in each location, so ask your lodging agents if they can assist you with the rentals. Get ready for an amazing time!

 

Ubud

 I’m sorry I can’t find the name of this wonderful villa we stayed at. I remember it was around $90 a night though, approximately 6 minutes drive to the downtown area. If you are looking for the quintessential Balinese experience, we suggest time in Ubud. We absolutely loved it there!

Sanur Beach

Sanur Seaview Hotel is a fantastic place to stay. $40 a night with a delicious free breakfast each morning. Close enough to see the water and only a 2 minute drive to Sanur beach. We had the sweetest front desk agents, fresh towels daily and consistent room cleanings. The beach is often packed with locals, young and old. There is a section of street food stands where you can find some yummy treats. As you travel farther along the coast you will find restaurants, shops and resorts.

At one point we came across Surya Padi Dive Center & Water Sports, which is where we tried out parasailing! It was $22 per person for a 15 minute flight over the ocean. One person at a time only.

Our favorite time in Bali was spent on the gorgeous island of Lembongan. We booked transport from our hotel in Sanur, a round trip cruise to the island, glass bottom boat snorkeling tour, banana boat ride and beach front lunch for $60 per person through Scoot Fast Cruises. We decided to rent scooters for a few hours while there so we could visit the surrounding beaches (Dream, Mushroom, Jungutbatu). It was a very hot day, so we enjoyed having some cold drinks at the bar overlooking Mushroom Beach. Along our drive we were advised to find the yellow bridge so we could travel from Lembongan to Nusa Ceningan island. I’ll never forget how narrow and rickety that old bridge was, especially since one week after we were there we heard news that the bridge had collapsed and killed 8 people (picture above). I’m not sure if they have repaired it by now or not, but if you cross please take it slow, wait your turn and proceed with caution!

Bossman Burgers

Seminyak is a busy/touristy area with plenty of fun to get into! We want to encourage you to visit the W Hotel for dinner, drinks and swimming. It’s such a beautiful property to watch the sunset from. Potato Head Beach Club is a great place to soak up some sun, sip a fruity cocktail at the swim up bar and make fast friends. If you are looking for the best burgers on the island, look no further than Bossman. It is $6.50 per burger. Our favorite is the Original Gangster with truffle parm fries. I can’t remember the name of where we stayed unfortunately!

Waterbom Waterpark, Kuta

DO NOT MISS A DAY AT WATERBOM! We still talk about our day there often. This water park is the coolest. We paid $23 per person for a day pass, then $7 for a locker.

 

As always, we love you (from across the globe)
