The moment you set foot in Bali, you can sense how important faith and customs are for Balinese people. From the 10,000 elegant temples scattered across Bali, and hence known as ‘The Island Of Gods.’ With our Bali travel packages, you will learn about more than 300 ancient temples, some of which are the finest and hence need to be visited.
Pura Tanah Lot Temple: As one of the most famous temples, Pura Tanah Lot is a photographer’s delight. Founded in the 16th century around the coast of Kuta, the temple is one of the holiest places in Bali. Visit this scenic and most photographed symbol of Bali and pay your respects at the multi-tiered shrines.
Besakih Temple: Situated on Bali’s holiest and highest mountain slopes, the Besakih temple complex is a primary sacred site in east Bali. The Balinese Hindu worshippers wear their finery and make elaborate offerings with the belief that the gods sometimes descend to reside in the temple. Explore the colossal complex, which holds 20 temples spread across the site for almost three kilometers.
All the scenic pictures that have attracted you to Bali are genuine, and you will find that out when you visit some breathtakingly beautiful places. Take a day trip with our Bali honeymoon packages and visit the famous rice terraces, volcanic mountains, and gorgeous waterfalls with your partner.
Gunung Batur and Danau Batur: For an out-of-the-world experience, take a hike in the scenic Batur area, where a gigantic volcano erupted almost 30,000 years ago. One of the most famous spots in the Bali trip guide is the volcanic mountain peaks and silver-turquoise lake in the 13.5 km crater that offers an unparalleled view. On the floor of this crater, you will find Gurung Batur, an active volcano of 1717m with 4 minor peaks, and Danau Batur Lake next to it. You will get a memorable location experience, especially if you visit the top around sunrise.
Sanur: When you visit Sanur, it gives you a secluded and peaceful village vibe. Take a stroll along the 5km-long sandy beach that wraps around the town, or try swimming during high tide. Stop by the attractive restaurants mentioned in our traveller’s guide to Bali situated all along the shore.
Nusa Lembongan: For an ideal getaway to white-sand beaches and wild mangroves, head to the tiny island of Nusa Lembongan, which you can easily explore on foot or by bike. From backpackers and locals to divers, snorkelers, and surfers, the scenic beaches and the island’s laidback pace draw everyone to its picturesque shores.
