4 Things You Have to do in Bali
1. Get a Massage
There’s a specific type of massage called Balinese massage that is like a fusion of other types of massages but reminds me most of a sports massage. It’s all about getting deeper into your muscles and helping you feel better. The best thing about getting a massage in Bali is the fact that they’re extremely affordable. You can spend around $10 USD per hour of massage. Of course, if you go to a fancy spa you’ll pay a lot more, but there are plenty of affordable options that are extremely high quality. Do tip the person who gives you a massage if you’re happy with their services as a tip does go a long way there.
2. Head to Waterbom Waterpark
Who would have thought Bali would be home to one of the coolest waterparks in the whole world? Well it kind of makes sense considering there’s a strong tourism market as well as wonderful weather all year around. This is the perfect activity do with friends or your family. Just be sure to take a lot of sunscreen as you’ll probably want to spend hours and hours enjoying all the cool rides.
3. Head to the Rice Fields
You’ve probably seen the incredible photos people take in Bali with beautiful, lush green rice fields behind them. While there are obviously lots of rice fields in Bali, chances are you saw photos of people posing in front of Tegalalang Rice Terrace. Yes it’s a little touristy, but it’s also absolutely stunning. You can easily organise a private driver to take you to visit the fields and to walk through nature.
4. Head to Ubud and Get Your Yogi on
Of all the places I’ve traveled in the world, Ubud has to be one of the coolest and most zen places I’ve ever been. There’s a bunch of yoga studios here, you’ll literally be spoiled for choice. My personal favourite yoga studio in Ubud is called Radiantly Alive. The Yoga Barn is also another famous studio here, set in some rice paddy fields. After class, you can sip on a fresh coconut to get your fluids back up. You’ll also notice that there’s a bunch of vegan and raw food restaurants dotted across the town.
