Water sports and activities
Bike rides and hikes
There's no better way to discover the true magic of Bali than to get away from the crowded coastal areas and get lost in the exotic landscapes in the centre of the island. For example, going on a hike to the magnificent Mount Batur and taking a dip in its hot springs at sunrise is an experience you won't forget! You can also admire its famous rice terraces on a bike tour.
Balinese massages are world-famous and are very affordable in Bali. They use acupressure with the thumbs to stimulate the lymphatic system and increase blood flow alongside aromatherapy with essential oils. They can be painful but also very relaxing, and you can't leave Bali without experiencing one!
The Barong Dance, the Kecak Dance and the Ramayana Ballet are some of the most famous shows in Bali. In Ubud you'll find many places where they are performed, and you can also watch them at the Tanah Lot and Uluwatu temples.
In Bali, you'll have the opportunity to ride on the back of an elephant, bathe it, or feed it. The Elephant Safari Park Lodge, where you can stay to be even closer to these friendly pachyderms, is one of the most interesting places to visit.
Bali Swing is a new tourist activity in Bali that has become extremely popular. Get your iconic Bali photo and swing high in the treetops with spectacular views of tropical landscapes at one of Bali's Swing Parks.
