One Week In Bali: Perfect Itineraries For The Best Trip

One Week In Bali Itinerary

Planning a trip for one week in Bali? Bali has so many amazing places to explore, one of the hardest things to do is choose the right combination of places to stay and visit, let alone putting together a Bali itinerary. Here we have our favourite one week Bali itineraries to help you decide how to spend one week in Bali (with some exciting news at the end of this article!)…

See our Bali Itinerary Guides to plan your best trip to Bali.

One Week In Bali: Itinerary Option 1

Destinations: Ubud + Seminyak

Ubud Monkey Forest

Seminyak and Ubud are two completely different areas of Bali, which will give you a good overview. Ubud is great to see the cultural side of Bali and it’s natural beauty. Whilst Seminyak lacks some of the culture, it has a relaxing holiday vibe with excellent restaurants, boutique shops and of course the beach.

  • Walking the Campuhan Ridge in Ubud
  • Relaxing at the beach and beach clubs in Seminyak
  • Eating some delicious food from an amazing array of restaurants

One Week In Bali: Itinerary Option 2

Destinations: Canggu + Uluwatu

Canggu Smoothie Bowl The Shady Shack

Canggu and Uluwatu are both laid back coastal areas of Bali, but still very different. If you’re hoping to spend most of your holiday by the coast but still want to see more of Bali, then this combination will be great. Canggu has a delicious array of food options, you can see the beautiful rice fields, but although it’s by the beach, we prefer the beaches in Uluwatu. Uluwatu has beautiful beaches and feels more untouched (besides the resorts), and it’s all about relaxing, surfing and the beach.

Planning Your One Week Bali Itinerary

The number one question we get asked is how to plan your Bali Itinerary. What destinations to stay at, where to eat, what to do etc. We love helping you plan your Bali trip, but there’s only so much detail we can go into in a blog post, or email or blog comment. So we decided to create the product we thought would help you the most, Bali Itineraries. Rather than creating a high cost one on one itinerary planning service, which takes hours of your time, planning back and forth, and often it might take a week for you to get your finalised itinerary plan, we decided to package the value of a one on one itinerary planning service into a printable product you can get immediately.

Our One Week Bali Itineraries include two in-depth one-week itineraries and one bonus Jimbaran 4 day Itinerary, each with daily morning, evening and afternoon suggestions of what to do and where to eat. You will also get a booking checklist, ‘Before you go’ checklist, Bali packing list and packing tips, a blank one-week itinerary template, destination information, hotel suggestions and maps for each area. Rather than packaging each itinerary separately, we wanted to group them together so you can easily customise an itinerary of your own from the information we give you, or you can simply follow any one of our itineraries. As we include multiple options, you could easily use it to plan not only a 7 day itinerary but a 10 day itinerary or even up to 2 weeks in Bali.

  1. I love your website it’s been a huge help to my research for this trip. I’m visiting Bali with my boyfriend for 12 days in June. We’re coming from the US and with such a far travel I’m trying to make the most of this trip. Would you kindly provide feedback on this possible itinerary:
    Days 1-3 Seminyak: want to check out strawberry fields, potatoe head beach, la favela at night. The food in Canggu and beach clubs looks great- is it possible to do a day trip there or is it best to stay there? Not sure how far it is from Seminyak.

    Days 4-7/8 Ubud: id like to hike Mt Batur, wall campuhan ridge, visit Tegalalang rice fields, Tegenungan waterfall, monkey forest, and still have some time to shop the market. I truly want to visit a Balinese healer but is there enough time and do you have any suggestions on who to visit?

    Days 8-9 Nusa Ceningan/Nusa Penida: is an overnight enough time or is two nights better? Not sure what you suggest for getting from Ubud to these islands. I want to visit The Sands at Ceningan, Kelingking Beach, angel billabong natural pool, Slwehan Beach— is there a tour that offers visits to these beaches?

    Days 10-12 Jimbaran: looking to end w luxury and relaxation

    Thank you so much for taking the time to review and respond- this trip is a spiritual journey for me, a once in a lifetime healing experience and I want to ensure I plan the best itinerary possible.


    1. Hi Desiree thank you so much for your comment :)
      Canggu is close enough to visit from Seminyak if that’s what your thinking and don’t want to keep changing hotel, although you will get a better feel for it by staying there. At times it can get really bad traffic in-between but it really is a 20-30 mins drive depending on where you start and finish in Seminyak and Canggu.
      Sorry, but we don’t have any recommendations for a Balinese healer.
      I would recommend doing 2nights for Ceningan/Penida, to have a bit more time to explore them. Depending on the company you book with you can get a fast boat from Serangan or Sanur to Lembongan or Penida depending what you plan on first. You could also choose to stay 2 nights on one island and visit the other as a day trip, or even base yourself on Nusa Lembongan and get a boat/tour from here. There are many tours of Nusa Penida but we haven’t actually done any yet (hopefully soon!) so just make sure to pick one that best suits you and check reviews :).
      Jimbaran definitely has a few amazing Luxury hotels that you will love, take a look at some here:

      Have a great trip and let us know if you have any other questions.
