Here’s how to enjoy Bali for…
For an up close and personal encounter with Bali’s feathered residents head to the Bali Bird Park in Batubulan, Ghaniar. Home to around 1,000 birds of 250 species, including some from Latin America and South Africa, the two-hectare property also boasts over 2,000 tropical plants.
For a change of pace, head to the nearby Don Antonio Blanco Museum in Ubud. Blanco was one of the most famous Western artists who ever lived and worked in Ubud. His eccentric home and studio showcase his rich artistic legacy.
Spend a day at the Padang-Padang beach, one of the island’s best surf spots. Off the tourist radar until recently, the white sand beach is no longer a secret so expect company.
Then feast on Spanish tapas and Mediterranean delicacies at the nearby El Kabron , a cliff-top restaurant. After a day of fun in the sun, satisfy your hunger with a seafood paella or a gazpacho soup before enjoying a sundowner from the comfort of one of the restaurant’s ubiquitous beanbags.
Night owls will be pleased to know that Bali loves to party. With some of the swankiest night time action on the island, Seminyak is the must-go to area for those wishing to sample the island’s most happening establishments. Start your evening with a cocktail or five at Ku De Ta, one of Bali’s quintessential beachfront venues.
Not ready to call it a night? Why not head to the Potato Head Beach Club, where resident DJs oversee the proceedings to the wee hours of the morning.
