BALI HOLIDAYS

 

 

Bali - an Indonesian Island paradise just 1000 miles from Australia. Varied? You bet.. Bali is known for dazzling nightlife in Kuta, serene volcanic landscapes, some of the most luxurious beach resorts in the world, incredible sunsets, and the Balinese people who have held on to a rich cultural and religious heritage, totally independent of the rest of Indonesia. The people are so friendly you just can't wait to go back. Bali has been a big draw for writers and artists since the beginning of the last century and its easy to see why..

 

Bali is best visited as a multi-centre holiday. We would recommend starting with that longed for beach holiday in one of Bali's luxury resorts, before moving on to the interior and sampling the peace and serenity of Ubud, made famous by the book & film 'Eat, Pray, Love'. Ubud is surrounded by peaceful rice fields and terraces and lush jungle covering the steep river gorges. The accommodation here is simply mind-blowing. During the day you can relax in the pool overlooking the valley and in the evening head into town to sample Ubud's market and dine in one of the local restaurants. When the sun goes down and you're back at your hotel, you'll be overwhelmed by the sounds as the forest comes to life. Ubud makes a great base to see the north of Bali where you can experience great views of the volcanoes, unspoilt beaches and traditional villages.

 

Bali can also be combined easily with it's neighbours Lombok and the Gili Islands for a more peaceful retreat.

 

It's an effort to get to Bali, 15 hours in one go, so why not break the journey at Singapore, Hong Kong or Kuala Lumpur on the way, making it a twin centre holiday.

 

Bali is high on our list of favourite destinations and at Millington Travel we have specialists who know these islands well so give us a call today for expert advice and recommendations while you plan your perfect trip.

 

 

 

 

Millington Travel's Top Ten Things to do in Bali.

  2. Ubud. Bali's cultural heart. Visit here and feel the peace and calm.

  3. Scuba Diving - Gili Islands. Off the coast of Lombok, Bali's neighbour are some of the best dive sites in the region.  

  4. Tour Bali's Temples. Discover Bali's rich Hindu heritage by touring some spectacular temples, many on hillsides with incredible views. 

  5. Amed. A traditional Balinese coastal village surrounded by volcanic peaks. A real experience of local life and a complete get-away-from-it-all experience.

  6. Mount Agung. Scale Bali's 'Holy Mountain' for incredible sunrise views.

  7. Cycle around the ricefields. Hire a bike in Ubud and take a cycle tour of the countryside to see traditional farmers at work.

  8. Find your perfect beach. Escape the hustle and bustle on a beach at Sanur, Candidasa (volcanic sand), Jimbaran, Lovina, Lombok, Lembongan Island, Gili Islands. All different resorts & villages, all with fabulous beaches.

  9. Try a cooking course. Learn how to conjure up some tasty Balinese dishes with a hands on cooking course.

  10. Meet the locals. Ask at your hotel about visiting a local farm, or family home. They'll be sure to arrange this so you can get to know the Balinese way of life in a way that you can't on a pre-booked tour designed for tourists. 

 

 

When to go?

 

Bali is perfect for a summer holiday from the UK.. Depart anytime from June to October and the rainfall is at it's lowest, but especially in August when there is hardly any! That's unique for South-East Asia in our Summer Months. If you want to visit at other times of year, the weather is never really bad.. it's always hot, but the rainfall is higher from November to May so expect short sharp heavy showers.

Food & Drink

 

In the resorts you'll have no trouble finding high quality international food and drink readily available in hotels and local restaurants. This is a relief because local Balinese food is a very simple affair with food looked upon as a staple rather than a luxury. Often accompanied by rice and noodles, the Balinese make meals to be light and portable to be eaten on the go or while working and there is very little fanfare or celebration during mealtimes. Duck, Chicken and Pork, are common accompaniments. In local warungs you would basically see rice and vegetables alongside whatever meat is cooked that day and you simply point at the one you want.
