3 days in Bali: What to do
Upon booking a trip to Bali, the next question would inevitably be: What can I do there?
Well, there is certainly no hard and fast rule about what you have to tick off your checklist of ‘must see’s to be able to say that you have indeed seen Bali. Many a times, the best adventures are to be found when you take the road less travelled. This also applies to accommodations, a few are well-kept secrets. Especially, you can find amazing villas if you know where to look. However, there are certain attractions that are lovely and well worth your time to explore. We list three of our favourites.
The Ubud Monkey Forest is indeed special to Bali, and remniscent of an adventure movie. A few hundred Macaque monkeys keep watch over the sacred Hindu Pura Dalem Agung Padangtegal, which translates to the Great Temple of Death. It is a unique experience indeed, and the forest is shrouded in a sense of mystery. The monkeys though, certainly make their presense felt, and might attempt to wrest anything they can get off an unsuspecting visitor. Don’t try to feed the monkeys unless you want all of them descending upon you at once.
Bali is home to some magnificent volcanoes, and they are deserving of a visit. Look upon streams of hardened black lava, and the thick forest surrounding it, as the volcanoes defiantly rise to spectacular heights. Mount Agung and Mount Batur are popular amongst trekkers who want to view the sunrise and the sweeping landscape from the peak of the volcano.
Lastly, when in Bali, you do not want to miss out on the crystal clear waters which offer some of the best snorkelling and diving spots. Take a trip out to the Gilis Islands, where you can view a large variety of marine life. Schools of pretty colourful fish and shrimp dart in and out of the corals and you might even catch a glimpse of a shy eel or even a reef shark.
