I fell in love for Bali since the first moment I arrived, not sure if was because of all the natural beauty surrounding it or if was because of the happy and smiley people living in such a special place. But, there is something very mystical and unique about this island. As Balinese people say “You don’t choose Bali, Bali chooses you” and this is absolutely true! Make sure you are going there with good vibes ONLY 🙂

For those who are planning to spend some days in Bali, I strongly recommend staying more than 7 days to make your money and time worth it, and no worries, because your money will worth each cent in this Island of Gods. As I told you before, in one of my latest posts, Bali is very accessible in accommodation and food, so you can travel cheap or fancy as you want.

In my opinion, the best choice is to spend a couple of days in different places in Bali as you can easily move around by scooter or Taxi/Grab.

Then, I’ll suggest you what you can visit in the different places, how many days you can spend in each place and some accommodations that you can stay with good location, good reviews and good relationship between price and quality.
Obs. There are cheaper and expensive accommodations, it’s up to you to choose on Booking, the ones more suitable for you.

Hope it can be useful for you ?
