Legian beach, kuta and seminiyak region, then to Ubud, then to candidasa and Ahmed and climb the mountain there, then to the penida and lembongan islands then back to fly home.
We’ve heard mixed things about the kuta, semniyak region and we’re wondering whether to miss it out, or think it’s woryh seeing for a couple or nights post flight, seeing as it’s so close to the airport?
So planning the Bali trip now and thinking of the following …
Did 2 weeks in Bali in February, stayed just outside Seminyak. Seminyak itself is decent, lots of good shops and fancies eateries. Ventured into Kuta one evening, as others have said it's a dive, like an Aussie Magaluf.
Hired a driver (about £25/30 a day) and did a few day trips, rice terraces, Mount Batur, waterfalls, Monkey Forest etc. Book it all when you are there, it's easy and a lot cheaper. The island itself is small but traffic is a nightmare.
I'd reccomend checking out Canggu, could be worth a stop for a night or two. It's a small beach-side town, about 10km/30min from Seminyak. Did a 2hr 1:1 surf lesson here for about a tenner, good fun. Brilliant Japanese restaurant there called Ji, lovely roof terrace to watch the sunset from.
ETA: Didn't rate Potato Head, prefered Ku De Ta beach club which is close by.
