Bali is a beautiful and enchanting island that offers a perfect blend of adventure, relaxation, and culture. I recently had the pleasure of spending four weeks in Bali with my girlfriend, and it was an unforgettable experience. We explored the island, tried new foods, met friendly locals, and soaked up the sun.
We started our trip in Canggu, a laid-back beach town known for its surfing and yoga scene. We stayed in a cozy villa close to the beach and rented a scooter to explore the surrounding areas. We visited popular spots such as Tanah Lot Temple, the numerous beaches and awesome cafes. We also stumbled upon some hidden gems, such as a secluded waterfall and a local market where we tried some delicious Balinese warung food.
After five days in Canggu, we headed to Ubud, the cultural heart of Bali. Ubud is known for its lush green rice paddies, artisan markets, and traditional dances. We stayed in a charming guesthouse surrounded by lush natur and rented a scooter to explore the nearby villages. We visited the famous Tegalalang Rice Terrace, the Monkey Forest, and the Ubud Palace. We also took a cooking class and learned how to make traditional Balinese dishes.
One of the highlights of our trip was riding a scooter around the island. We covered more than 1500 km, and we saw so much of Bali's beauty. We rode through the lush jungles, past stunning beaches, and alongside the stunning rice terraces. We also experienced the bustling city of Denpasar and the quieter regions of Bali.
Overall, our four weeks in Bali was an incredible experience. We loved the friendly locals, the unique culture, and the stunning landscapes. It's no wonder why Bali is known as the Island of the Gods.
