With 5 days in Bali, you would be able to some of the must visit places in Bali in your itinerary.
One important tip is that you should consider hiring a driver and a car to take you around as Bali island itself is huge and would take quite a bit of time to get from one place to another. If you don’t mind some serious moving around for some of the tourist attractions, while having a day or two for relaxation, then our suggested 5 days itinerary in Bali is best for you:
Day 1 – Arrival and Kuta
Arrival at Denpasar International Airport and plan early how you would get to your hotel. If you have not thought of where to stay yet, our Top 10 Best Areas to Stay in South & Central Bali may be of help to find a suitable one. Head quickly to Kuta beach and get some suntan and swimming in. After enjoying the beautiful sunset, head to the city and check out Kuta’s vibrant nightlife. If you plan to stay in Kuta *, there are naturally lots of choices.
Day 2 – Uluwatu and Tanah Lot TempleUluwatu Temple and then back to Tanah Lot Temple, in time to enjoy the amazing sunset there. If you are in time, you should catch the famous Kecak Dance, set with the backdrop of the beautiful temple. End the day with a good dinner at Ultimo in Seminyak.
Day 3 – Beach day
After the hectic day from yesterday, it is a good time to check out some of the best beaches of Bali. Chooseone from the many choices and have a good relaxation. Chill on white sand beaches, swim or snorkel in clear blue sea and get some holiday tan. Few of my favourites are the Balangan beach and Padang-padang beach. Towards evening, go to Jimbaran for a romantic seaside dinner. Since you are in this area, also check out the rock bar at RIMBA Jimbaran Bali by AYANA * after.
Day 4 – Explore Ubud and the rice fields
Ubud is the place one must explore when in Bali. Walk around the city would be a delight, there are many boutiques to shop around, spas and massages to pamper yourself and art or attractions to visit. Next, head out to the north to the neighbor town of Tegalalang to find classic rice terraces of Asia. Imagine picturesque backdrop along the way as you explore Bali whether in a car or on a bike flanking by rice fields as far as the eye can see. Many tourists also like to stay in Ubud * as it is quite central to many of the attractions around Bali and yet away from the crowd in Kuta.
Day 5 – Last minute shopping and departure
Before flying off, sneak in some last minute shopping at Seminyak and then drive to the airport for departure.
