Bali: what to see & where to go


Bali places

So many of my friends and people I met during my travel are going to Bali for christmas and new years. And i remembered that I once had an idea to make a post about my favourite places in the island of gods. So here it is, for those who want to see something interesting and not to get stuck only in Kuta ;)

>> MUST SEE <<

1. Sunrise at the top of volcano: Agung (8hour hike) or Batur (2,5hour hike) – u must do at least one!!! amazing feeling!

2. Uluwatu (go to the left and keep walking until the very end, there is a small path through the bushes which brings u to the most amazing cliff in Bali – sunset spot)

More on my blog post here: < >

3. Waterblow Nusa Dua
Cool place during high-tide, biggest waterblow I’ve seen live

4. Garuda Wisnu Kencana Cultural Park
Interesting park where big statue of Krishna is being build
Possible to sneak out for free through the souvenir shop by getting up the stairs to the second floor (it works – I personally checked)
