Our Bali Itinerary

Bali Itinerary

Here is our Bali Itinerary for 2011 and 2012. Below is a quick snapshot of where we went and for how long with a mini-review so you can see what worked and what didn’t.

Our Bali Itinerary – 2011

Tuban/South Kuta

Sunday 6th of November

Stayed overnight in Tuban. Close to Airport and flight got in late. Checked out some of south Kuta before heading out to Ubud the next morning.

Ubud

Monday 7th of November – Wednesday 9th of November

Stayed in Ubud village, explored Ubud village by foot and saw some of the surrounding areas to Ubud. Did a cooking class in the outskirts of Ubud which included a market tour and cooking in a family compound. Lot’s of eating, massages and walking.

Jimbaran Bay

Wednesday 9th of November – Monday 14th of November

Headed to Jimbaran Bay. From here we also explored Kuta, Legian, Seminyak and Uluwatu. We also went back to Ubud on a day trip (cycling through villages) that we didn’t have time to do whilst there. Although it would have been easier to do from Ubud, we are so glad we did it.

Itinerary Review

Pro’s: Staying near airport on first and last night – Bali traffic can be unpredictable

Con’s: Trip length too short and still other places to discover

Highlight: Exploring Ubud and Ubud Cooking Class

Our Bali Itinerary – 2012

Jimbaran Bay

Wednesday 12th of September

One night here as it’s close to the airport and our flight got in late.

Ubud

Thursday 13th of September – Sunday 16th of September

We had to re-vist Ubud. I thought second time around maybe wouldn’t be as good, but I was wrong. We saw a completely different Ubud this time as we explored things we didn’t get to see the first time.

Gili Trawangan – Lombok

Sunday 16th of September – Tuesday 18th of September

Transport from Ubud to Padang Bai where we got a speedboat to Gili Trawangan. Explored the island, swam, snorkelled, walked, hired bicycle’s, ate, relaxed.

Senggigi – Lombok

Tuesday 18th of September – Wednesday 19th of September

Speedboat to Senggigi – stayed just outside of Senggigi for one night. Explored Senggigi and surrounds.

Jimbaran Bay

Wednesday 19th of September – Tuesday 25th of September

Back to Jimbaran Bay to end the trip. From here we also explored Kuta, Legian, Seminyak, Uluwautu and Nusa Dua.

Itinerary Review

Pro’s: Ending trip with 6 days based in one spot allowed us to relax before coming home

Con’s: Too little time on Lombok mainland – so much more to explore

Highlight: Discovering Lombok!
