Bali

Cycle through lush country rice paddies, trek around ancient temples or simply unwind on the stunning beaches of this jewel in the Indonesian Archipelago.

Bali’s appeal is huge, attracting a diverse range of visitors from backpackers to honeymooners, young families and expats. The Island is world famous for its mix of stunning beaches, mist-covered mountains and rice paddies, served up with a unique cultural and spiritual flavour from its numerous museums and temples.

A short drive from the international airport in capital city Denpasar, you’ll find the renowned beaches of North Kuta. Kuta beach and Legian beach have long been established as a real surfers’ paradise. The villages of Kuta and Legian are host to an array of markets, bars, cafes and waterparks, which more than cater for the crowds of visitors. For a change of pace, head to Sanur Beach on the east coast. Its more relaxed atmosphere makes the region popular with families.

Heading inland, you can easily spend a few days cycling alongside rice paddies or wandering through the forests at Tegallalang Village. Or head to Ubud for a more cultural experience. Ubud is Bali’s artistic capital and home to Puri Lukisan Museum, Neka Art Museum, Antonio Blanco Museum and the Arma Museum. In between visits why not try a Yoga class or visit Ubud Monkey Forest where you’ll see macaques sitting on the temples roofs. There’s also the mystical Elephant Cave and the ancient Tirta Empul baths that date from the 9th Century and where you can still go for a dip.

To the South of Ubud, admire the exotic animal and bird species at the Bali Zoo and Bali Bird Park. To the north in central Bali is the Gunung Kawi Temple, carved into the mountainside in the 11th Century.

In South Kuta, visit the beautiful Jimbaran Beach and enjoy an incredible seafood banquet served right on the sand. The east coast of South Kuta is Nusa Dua, home to Mengiat Beach and a collection of Asian Pacific artworks housed in the Pasifika Museum. Perched on a cliff top on the southwest coast is Uluwatu Temple, one of the prime spots on the Island to sit, unwind and marvel at the incredible Balinese sunset.

Q: Should I book a car while on holiday in Bali?

A: Unless you're really into cars, public transportation is probably the easiest way of moving around the lively streets of Denpasar or Tabanan. With no parking fees (or trips to the gas station) to bother about, you'll be able to check out the sights of the city with ease. If your aim is to bypass town completely and cruise around the region of Denpasar Selatan or elsewhere, renting a vehicle is a fantastic option. Browse through our guide to Cheap Car Hire in Bali, book a set of wheels and go where you want, whenever you want.

Q: Which airports can I fly in to for a holiday to Bali?

A: Your best bet is to fly into Denpasar Airport (DPS-Ngurah Rai Intl.). This a top airport terminal in Bali, operating 3,109 international flights each month.

Q: What are the most popular types of hotels for a holiday to Bali?

A: From fancy options to those with fewer frills, there's plenty of choice. Many visitors base themselves in hotels. Other popular places are villas, guest houses and hotel resorts.

Q: What does a holiday booking with Expedia include?

A: Hotels, flights, cars — and activities and experiences. Expedia has everything you need for the ideal holiday. Choose just one of these options or secure one of our awesome travel packages. You've got the flexibility and freedom to customize your break just the way you like it.

Q: What is the best way to save money on my holiday to Bali?

A: The best way to save money is to bundle your bookings with the help of Expedia. Hotels, Flights and Experiences can all be quickly combined into a neat package — and by doing this, you'll save precious time as well. Keep this in mind before making your booking.

Q: What are the best things to do in Bali?

A: Don't forget to add Serangan Beach and Sindhu Beach Market to your must-do list if you're stopping in Denpasar. Mertasari Inspiration Park is another favourite of travellers and locals alike.

Go somewhere new while you're in Tabanan — make tracks for Pura Ulun Siwi, Blue Bubble Bali and Alas Kedaton.

Or, for some new experiences, find out why Perancak Temple, Jembrana Beach and Baluk Rening Beach are enticing attractions for people holidaying in Negara.
