Best rated tourist attractions in Bali? Located at the southern tip of Bukit in Bali, Uluwatu beach attracts lots of surfers of varying experience levels from all over the world. The word Uluwatu is formed of two words- ‘Ulu’ which means ‘land’s end’ and ‘watu’ that means rock. This is because its waves are made up of five world-class surf breaks. If you love surfing then bring your board and test your skills but if you would much rather relax then there are plenty of hotels and restaurants there which give a beautiful view of the ocean in all its glory. When here, make sure to check out the Pura Luru Uluwatu temple of this region. The clear blue waters of the place are perfect for a getaway. See additional information at places to see in Bali.
Want to visit the beautiful emerald-hued rice fields that you see on all the Bali tourist brochures and Instagram posts? The Tegallalang or Jatiluwih rice terraces should be at the top of your sightseeing list — especially if you’re a photographer. About a 30-minute drive north of Ubud, Tegallalang Rice Terraces are one of the most famous areas to photograph these iconic landscapes and absorb their timeless beauty. Be aware that locals ask for donations along the most popular trail through the rice fields here, and many request fees for entrance and parking along the road. A relaxing way to enjoy the lush landscapes is at one of the many restaurants and cafés overlooking the fields. About a 90-minute drive from Ubud, the Jatiluwih rice terraces cover more than 600 hectares of rice fields along the hillsides of the Batukaru mountain range and tend to be less crowded than Tegallalang. You’ll also find fewer tourist touts here, so it’s easier to walk around and explore without being hassled. Both of these locations use the traditional water management cooperative called “subak,” a UNESCO-recognized irrigation system that dates to the 9th century.
Sanur is located on the east coast of Bali and it’s one of the most popular places to visit in Bali for families. This is thanks to the family friendly resorts, the great beaches and the popular water sports activities. Lempuyang is a region which has grown in popularity over recent years due to the beautiful “Bali Gates of Heaven ”, an iconic photo spot that when taken at the right time of day, gives you a backdrop of Mount Agung. When I first visited Bali, this wasn’t even on the radar of things to do, now it’s too popular!
This sacred active volcano lies in Kintamani District in Bali’s central highlands, about an hour’s drive from Ubud. The hike, along well-marked trails, is relatively easy and usually takes about two to three hours. Guided treks typically include a picnic breakfast, with eggs cooked by the steam from the active volcano. On a clear day, the views are spectacular, stretching all the way across the Batur caldera; the surrounding mountain range; and beautiful Lake Batur, the island’s main source of irrigation water. Sturdy hiking shoes are essential, and it’s advisable to wear layers, as the temperature can be cool before sunrise. You can also combine a trip here with a visit to one of Bali’s most important temples, Pura Ulun Danu Batur, on the lake’s northwest shore, and a therapeutic soak in hot springs at the beautiful village of Toya Bungkah on the banks of Lake Batur.
