1. Ubud

The centre of Balinese painting, Ubud’s Museum “Puri Lukisan” has a permanent collection of modern works of Balinese art dating from the turn of the century.

2. Kuta

Once a lonely village on the road from Denpasar toward the Bukit Peninsula, Kuta is now a thriving tourist resort, popular mainly among the young. It is a popular beach for surfing although currents make it less suitable for swimming. Coast guards, however, are on constant duty during the day. Kuta faces toward the west offering beautiful sunsets.

3. Nusa Dua

The Nusa Dua tourist resort is part of the Bukit Peninsula in southern Bali. Some of the most beautiful and luxurious hotels are found here. The resort is known for its clean white beaches and clear waters.

4. Tanah Lot

One of Bali’s most important sea temples, the temple sanctuary at Tanah Lot is built atop a huge rock which is surrounded by the sea.

5. Batu Bulan

Driving northeast from Denpasar, stone figures on the roadside mark the village of Batubulan. Divinities and demons are carved from sandstone for ornaments of houses and temples. Workshop can be visited to watch artists at work.

6. Gianyar

Once the capital of one of Bali’s more powerful kingdoms, the town of Gianyar is today a centre of the textile industry. The specialty here is the ikat weaving the Balinese use in traditional wear. A number of factories hold informal tours.

7. Pura Besakih

Known as the “mother Temple of Bali, the sanctuary of Besakih on the slopes of Mt. Agung is the biggest and holiest of all Balinese temples. Over a thousand years old, steps ascend through split gates to the main courtyard where the Trinity shrines are wrapped in cloth and decorated with flower offerings.

Around the three main temples dedicated to the Trinity: Shiva, Brahma and Wisnu, are 18 separate sanctuaries belonging to different regencies and caste groups.

8. Terraced Rice Paddies

Whether it is bright and sunny or rainy and gloomy, the trip through the landscape of terraced rice paddies between Candidasa and Amlapura is one of remarkable scenic beauty. Allow plenty of time for photo stops.

9. Pura Kehen

Pura Kehen is the religious heart of Bangli’s many temples. One of the largest religious complexes in Bali, its origins can be traced back to the beginning of the eleventh century. A huge banyan tree shades the first courtyard.

10. Gunung Batur

The still-active Gunung Batur volcano, at an altitude of 1,717 meters (5,635 ft), is revered by the Balinese as the sec-ond-holiest mountain on the island (after Gunung Agung) and symbolises the female element next to Agung’s male.


i add some places to be visited :

11. Joger Bali (Souvenir shop at Kuta)

12. Kampung Bali (Souvenir shop at Denpasar)

13. Kuta Galeria (Shopping mall at Kuta)

14. Bebek Bengil (Duck Restaurant at Ubud)

15. Rafting at Tanjung Benoa –> MUST TRY.



Fyi, most of my friends are pregnant after they went to Bali for honeymoon.
