There is a reason why many tourists get there and never come back. If you want to get there, just pack your bags and go. Trust me; you won’t regret your decision. In this post, you will learn what you can do to make the most of your trip –
Hit the Beaches:-
Bali houses some of the best beaches in the world and these are also some of the best free things to do in this city. Just bring a beach towel and some sunscreen and claim a spot there. You can even rent an umbrella and beach chair for a few bucks. It is better to rent a property located right on the beach, if possible. You can find tons of beachfront homes in Bali on Airbnb listings. There would definitely be a no better option to wake up at the beach than these homes.
Catch Your First Wave in Bali:-
Have a close encounter with the Monkeys at Monkey Forest:-
If you are visiting Monkey Forest, be ready to get up and closer to the monkeys. Whenever you visit the Ubud monkey forest, be careful if you buy bananas from the friendly ladies out front. If you do, the monkeys would crawl up ahead. Keep all your bags zipped and avoid wearing sunglasses or a hat. Monkeys are naughty thieves by nature.
Ulun Danu Beratan Temple:-
When you look at the pictures of this temple on the web, you won’t have any doubt that it is among the best things in Bali to do. Ulun Danu Beratan Temple is one of the most beautiful temples here. This floating temple is located off the shore of Lake Bratan, which is 3600 ft. above the sea level in the center of Bali. So, it is cool and nice in comparison to Bali’s beaches.
Have a Relaxing Massage:-
After having a busy day with all the most happening things to do in this city, you can just relax with a relaxing massage. Balinese massages are both relaxing and super affordable. You can get a message for just up to $5 for an hour. A lot of massage parlors offer various types of facials, massages and other services. You can just get a message if you get tired here. It is sure that you will forget about the pain.
Soar High with the Parasailing:-

To catch the beautiful glimpse of sunrise on Mount Batur, be sure to set your alarm and wake up early morning. The wakeup call at the early morning is completely worth it once you reach the top of the mountain and catch the sun rising. It is one of the best things for you to do in Bali and you would definitely do it again and again.
Catch the Sunset:-

Located right at the shorelines, Uluwatu Temple is just the right spot to end your hectic day after doing all the adventurous things in Bali.

Partying in Kuta:-
There is no better option than ending your vacation by partying and having a night out in Kuta. Don’t plan too many things the next day. There are some bars where drinks are reasonably priced to start the night at full pace.
