My boyfriend and I are visiting Bali for the first time in September. We would love opinions on our current itinerary! We are young and love a good time, but we want our trip to be a combination of adventure, relaxing, and partying. Budget is not a huge issue, but we know Bali can be inexpensive if done right.
Seminyak Days 1-4:
We're hoping to do a little shopping, some sightseeing, and going out. On our list we have Pura Tanah Lot and Pura petitenget, shopping in Seminyak Square, going out at Potato Head and maybe Ku De Ta, La Favela, or Sky Garden down in Kuta. Any other must-see or must-do places in Seminyak? We're considering checking out Caangu(?) as well.
Ubud Days 4-7:
We want to do much more sightseeing and really get a feel for the "real Bali" and the culture. We also want to get a nice massage, do some yoga, and take a cooking class - recommendations would be great! On our sight seeing list we have Saraswati Temple, sunrise hike of Mt Batur, Pura Ulun Danu Beratan Temple, Tirta Empul, Tegenungan Waterfall, the Rice Fields, Monkey Forest, and Lempuyang Temple.
Gili T Days 7-8:
We would head out early in the morning from Ubud and then spend the full day to hang out on the beach and watch the sunset, do some partying, and head out the next morning. Figured its a small island and there's only so much you can do.
To end our trip, we want to relax and enjoy ourselves, maybe treat ourselves to a high end dinner. We want to go to Uluwatu Temple, Balangan Beach, Tegal Wangi beach, dreamland beach, and check out Single Fin.
If any of those places are overrated, or if there is a best time to see them, or if there's something we're totally missing I'd love to hear it! We are interested in snorkeling as well if there's a perfect beach for it that fits in with this itinerary.
We would also love opinions of where to eat, get a couples massage, cool shops, or just anything from past trips you feel like sharing.
Any info helps! We're really excited for our big getaway and want to make the most of it.
