6 TIPS for your
Shop 'til you drop
Explore for yourself
Shoppers are spoilt in Bali. From local markets to world-class malls, save some space for a medley of take-home treasures.
Hiring a driver is a smart idea, and for two main reasons. On a practical level, you remove the worry of driving a manual in a foreign country, alongside scooters, traffic jams and livestock! Secondly, everything is planned for you. It’s less hassle, less time consuming, and you get driven from door-todoor, absorbing all the highlights.
A warung is a small, casual dining establishment, usually family owned. They don’t look flashy but they’re your go-to for authentic Balinese cuisine.
Local markets offer a dense assortment of both trinkets and foot traffic, with Sukawati Art Market well regarded as Bali’s most legendary. This two-storey hub of sellers and hagglers stocks all manner of handmade keepsakes. Malls such as the Discovery Shopping Mall and Beachwalk on Kuta Beach offer an air-conditioned escape from the heat and can be accessed directly from the beach. Bartering is mostly only accepted at markets and won’t be well received in malls or boutiques. Venture to Seminyak for designer items and if you’re looking for something more in-keeping with Bali’s harmonious reputation, sustainable and ethically-conscious stores are popping up everywhere.
From volcanoes and mountain regions, to small villages and coffee plantations, your driver will take you to sites you might not have found yourself. While discussing each location, you’ll get insider’s knowledge from a genuine local, including your driver’s personal thoughts on just about everything. Hiring a driver starts from as little as $40 per day. Prices usually cover petrol, whereas additional costs (like entrance fees) won’t be included.
Start your day at a warung serving strong Balinese coffee (kopi). Thanks to the upper region’s rich volcanic soil the coffee will please the most distinguished Kiwi palette. As for must-try dishes, babi guling (suckling pig) is a favourite. Pasted with turmeric and stuffed with at least 10 ingredients, the pig is then spit roasted over coconut husks. Bali has an overwhelming choice of beautiful restaurants, some of our favourites include Mama San Kitchen Bar Lounge, this fabulous restaurant offers old and new world influence in their Asian cuisine. For a unique setting head to Ayana Resort, home to the infamous Rock Bar! Secure your spot in time for the sunset and 360 degree views.
Fun for all ages
More bang for your rupiah
Come home restored
Due to its protective reef and breakwaters, Sanur Beach, on the island’s east coast, is a favoured hangout for families. The entire 5 kilometres stretch is quiet and relaxed, with several restaurants, cafés and shady palm trees.
When in Bali, you’d be a fool not to indulge in a massage. Or several. In places such as Legian, Seminyak and Kuta, there’s a massage boutique every 50 metres. Simply walk in and enjoy a full body onehour massage for as little as $12.
Bali offers an infinite amount of feel-good wellness options. From spas to cheap massages, reflexology and yoga, it’s all about finding your inner calm.
When it comes to waterparks, the kids couldn't even dream of one as cool as the sprawling Waterbom Waterpark. The best in Asia, it covers all sorts of heights and frights, with slides that are a whopping 250 metres long and others that reach speeds of 70 kilometres per hour.
Food and drinks are also a bargain, with bottled water costing little more than $1, and local warungs with menu items starting from $5.
Bali Hai Reef Cruises offer a little bit of something for every family member. Departing Benoa Harbour, the full day luxury cruise sails to Lembongan Island where it moors alongside a purpose-built pontoon. With unlimited banana boat rides, a 35 metre water slide, refreshments and village excursions, there’s something for everyone.
Sanur Beach is one of the best places in Bali to partake in yoga because cheap rates are a walletfriendly $15 per lesson. And if it’s outdoor pursuits you crave, surfing lessons can be sought for $8 and you’ll get a full two hours. Or if you’d prefer an underwater experience, rent a mask and snorkel in the Coral Triangle Region for less than $15.
Bali is popular for its coffee (Kopi Luwak) which they incorporate into many spa treatments due to its anti-inflammatory properties. Chakras are meant to stimulate your ‘third eye’ and open a portal into your soul, but if that’s all a bit intense, try one of Bali’s numerous rooftop spas, with bars and resident DJs to complement a full menu of treatments. Enjoy Qigong (a form of meditation that incorporates both Yoga and Tai Chi), or if you’re a hands-on individual, try a silver workshop in Ubud, where you’ll learn traditional Balinese silver-smithing to create your own bespoke piece of jewellery.
Known as the â€˜Land of the Godsâ€™, Bali is undeniably beautiful. For a small tropical island, Bali has an amazing ability to provide something for everyone. Initially discovered by surfers for its amazing beaches, Bali is now well recognized for not only its great surf and stunning beaches, but also its diving and array of other watersports, resorts, restaurants and nightlife. Whether you enjoy crowds or a secluded beach, Bali has the lot! Each region is so unique which makes it impossible to describe Bali simply. This is largely due to the many different villages, each with their own individual charm and allure that collectively make up Bali.
Festivals and Events 2017 28 Mar 17
Known as the day of silence, Nyepi marks the celebration of the Balinese New Year in the Hindu Lunar calendar. On this day the island literally shuts down. Hotels do not accept guests arrival, facilities outside of the resort are limited, vehicles are not allowed on the streets and use of electricity is restricted.
Moving away from the main beaches, Baliâ€™s interior is a maze of fertile grassy plains, terraced rice paddies, striking lakes and vast volcanic mountains. The east coast is an area of great historical, cultural and spiritual significance with some of the most breathtaking natural scenery and idyllic village life on the island. This incredible landscape is only outdone by the warmth and friendliness of Balinese people. However you look at it, Bali is great value! Accommodation is well priced and plentiful, the shopping abundant, varied and cheap, and the food is delicious; think lemongrass, coriander, tamarind and ginger. You will never cease to be amazed at how the real beauty of Bali will reveal itself.
Experience Bali Our favourite things to see and do Dining – Having evolved over the years, Bali now has an overwhelming choice of restaurants and is a real dining destination. From cheap and cheerful, authentic Indonesian to fine dining and modern fusion, the choices are endless. For an eclectic mix of old Indonesia with a modern flair, head to Biku – blending together the unique combination of a tea lounge, restaurant, antiques and book store all in one. Mama San Kitchen Bar Lounge is a fabulous restaurant offering old and new world influence in their Asian cuisine. For a unique setting head to Ayana Resort, home to the infamous Rock Bar! Don't be late though, opening is at 4pm so be sure to secure your spot in time for sunset.
Potato Head Beach Club
Temple Visit – There are literally thousands of temples across Bali. Small devotional shrines are scattered through rice fields and often in hotel grounds. Some of the larger and more impressive temples, which are well worth visiting include Besakih (the mother temple situated in Eastern Bali), Uluwatu (perched high on a cliff on the southern coastline) and Tanah Lot (the impressive shore temple). Beach Bars – Nothing is better than watching the sun go down with an evening drink in hand. With an array of trendy beach bars in the upmarket Seminyak precinct, KU DE TA or Potato Head Beach Club are great options and the most well known. Spa Treatments – You will be amazed at the incredible number of spas available in Bali. Most hotels also have at least massage facilities, if not an established spa complex with many treatment rooms. Cooking Classes – What better way to take back memories of Bali, than to learn how to cook some of the exotic dishes that make Bali famous. Most hotels offer a cooking class and there are also a number of respected cooking schools operating regular programmes, teaching a range of Indonesian dishes.
Bali Food Safari is a progressive style dining experience, taking you on a journey through some of the most remarkable and respected restaurants in Bali. Dining tours offer an experience that surprise and engage the senses, taking you from your accommodation to an array of mystery venues in one brilliant evening, dining in a selection of the best handpicked participating restaurants, discovered and undiscovered, exploring the most exceptional and delicious delights Bali has to offer.
4 venue dining experience in Seminyak or Ubud Includes: A private driver guide for the evening and 4 venues including set meal selections (drinks are additional)
Whether you’re a new visitor or a frequenter to the island, this tour will expose you to a dining experience like no other as you sit back and let your taste-buds do the walking.

A perfect day in Gili Islands
Picture this, white sandy beaches, coconut palms, turquoise seas, no
cars or motorbikes and absolute relaxation. No it's not a dream, you're in the Gili Islands. Made up of three small islands located just off the northwest tip of Lombok and accessible by boat or plane. The Gili Islands are a popular destination for those seeking a remote island experience and also keen divers or snorkelers – the islands are surrounded by coral reefs. Gili Trawangan, or Gili T for short, is the largest of the islands and the most well-known. Considered as the most lively of the islands, you're spoilt for choice with pubs, clubs, restaurants and dive centres. Walk the entire island circumference in around two hours, you'll be sure to find your own little private sunbathing spot. Gili Meno, the smallest and quietest of the three Gilis, but don't let this put you off, this island has the best beaches of them all. With crystal clear waters and secluded white beaches, you are forced to relax on this laid back island, and great for a romantic getaway to flop and drop. Gili Air is the perfect mix of the other two islands. With plenty of bars, restaurants and dive centres to keep you entertained as well as unspoilt white sandy beaches and great snorkelling spots.

Sea Turtle Encounters – Get up close and personal with cute baby turtles at the Turtle Sanctuary on Gili Meno. Here the turtles are nurtured until they're around eight months old, and then released back into the wild. Make sure you plan your trip so you are there during a release. If you can't make it to the sanctuary, you will have plenty of opportunities to see turtles whilst snorkelling around any of the three islands. Gili Air Cooking School – Learn to cook like a local, with a local at Gili Air Cooking School. Totally focused on the traditional Indonesian cuisine and using the freshest local and seasonal products, learn from the best to ensure you can take these new found skills home with you.

You’re sure to encounter turtles, eels, reef sharks, sunken piers, mantas, stingrays and plenty of vibrant sea life. Finding the best snorkelling spot around the islands isn’t hard to do; don you snorkel and flippers and step off the beach and you're surrounded by dynamic coral reefs. Island Hop – Public boats between the Gilis operate twice a day and cost next to nothing, it's the best way to find out which Gili Island is your favourite.
