10 MOST AMAZING PLACES TO VISIT IN BALI
Bali is the island that has it all. From wonderful people and tasty food to amazing landscapes and wonderful places to visit. I’ve spent three weeks in Bali and it was not enough to see all the places that I have previously pinned on my Google Maps before going to Bali.
If you spend one or two weeks in Bali, you will need to prioritize and visit the top-rated places in Bali. Because I’ve seen quite a few, I thought a list of 10 must-see places could help you decide which places to go and enjoy.
10 MOST AMAZING PLACES NOT TO MISS WHEN VISITING BALI
Hidden Canyon Beji Guwang
I love traveling and exploring hidden places, untouched by human hands and not that many tourists in the proximity. And I’ve found my hidden gem in Bali as well.
Tegallalang Rice Terrace, Ubud
Tegallalang Rice Terrace is part of the UNESCO World Heritage list. Because of its beauty and uniqueness, is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Bali. A surreal place where you can spend an entire day. They have an amazing restaurant where I ate the best vegetable soup.
Monkey Forest, Ubud
Around 10 000 monthly visitors come to Monkey Forest. It is definitely one of Ubud’s hot spots. With an area of 12.5 hectares, the forest is a popular attraction for people who want to get closer to Monkeys and do a selfie.
Pemulan Farm Cooking School, Ubud
If you’ve always been fascinated by trying local food, then why not trade a day of city life for a few hours in the village, learning how to cook healthy Balinese food? You’ll have the opportunity to see a side of Bali rarely visited by tourists, meet the friendly locals, and experience the Balinese culture.
Alas Harum & Cretya Ubud
Alas Harum Agrotourism and Cretya Ubud are in the Tegallalang region of Ubud, north of the town center and near the previously mentioned Tegallalang rice terraces. If you search for the most Instagramable place in Bali, you’ve found it. Private rice fields, full of instagramable places and a 2 levels pool that will leave you speechless. If you are on a tight schedule, you can do both in one day, the Tegallalang rice terraces and Alas Harum & Cretya Ubud. Make sure to leave Cretya for last to enjoy the evening at the pool.
Tegenungan waterfall is one of the most popular waterfalls in Bali, not only because it is the most impressive one, but also because it is the most accessible one. Located 30 min South of Ubud, the 25-meter-high waterfall is very powerful, especially after the rainy season. You can swim in the plunge pool created by the waterfall and take some great photos with all the funny message signs that are free to use over there. I took two of them, that seemed the most appropriate to me.
Aloha Bali Swing, Ubud
Swings in Bali should be on your Bucket List as a top attraction. If you are kinda bored with the popular destinations or activities such as water sports, beaches, and temples, you could try this new activity. Adrenaline guaranteed. There are swings everywhere in Bali. They even rent beautiful dresses to make this experience memorable. And it’s been quite an adventure for me. I tried 4 types of swings and each one was different and special.
Heaven’s Gate, Lempuyang Temple
I believe this is the most prolific place in Bali. Heaven’s gate is not that heavenly in reality. I’ve been told that a lot of people get disappointed when they arrive here because they expect to see what’s in the first picture, but they end up with what’s in the second one. To take a picture here (photo shot at 6 am) you need to get a number and you can take the picture when your number is called. People from the Temple will take pictures for you, with a mirror on the lenses to get this effect.
Tirta Gangga Water Castle
Tirta Gangga Water Castle is a pool of mazes and fountains surrounded by lush gardens and statues. Tirta Gangga Bali is one of the legacies of the Karangasem Kingdom. Here you have plenty of places to take beautiful instagramable photos feeding the fishes. A visit to this place is more that necessary. You can include this location as part of a day tour as you will not spend too much time here. If you want to take pictures, visit in the morning or evening.
Kanto Lampo Waterfall
The Kanto Lampo Waterfall was created after the Kanto Lampo river region was hit by an avalanche. This is a hidden gem because it is not one of the best-known waterfalls in Indonesia. You can add this waterfall to a day tour as all you can do here is wait in line to take some nice pictures. You have professional guys taking pictures with your own phone and making sure the line is respected. Everyone has limited time up there. A perfect spot if you want some memorable pictures from Bali.
