Five things you must not miss in Bali



One of my favourite destinations is Bali. It is one of those places where I threw my fear of the sea and did scuba diving for the first time of my life . Probably because my husband was with me or I had an instructor who was with me the whole time, I was able to get over my fear. However, Bali is an absolutely wonderful destination and here are the five things you should not miss if you are in Bali.

1. Sunset at Tanah Lot
This may be touted as one of the must dos for tourists and believe me, it is not exaggerated. The 15th century temple built on a rock jutting out into the sea is dedicated to the sea gods and the sunset here is spectacular. Come here at least an hour early so that you can see the temple and then wait for the sun to bid its farewell.

2.Kecak dance
This is as fiery as the sunset. Stories from the Ramayana take centre stage here but it is the trance and the chanting that takes your breath away. Do not miss it .


3.Rustic Bali tour
From visiting homes and their family shrines to paddy fields to artisans, this is a beautiful tour and Ubud should be in your itinerary.

4.Batur lake
One of the most beautiful places is Bali is Mount Batur and the lake below it. This is an active volcano and lots of tourists attempt to climb it .

5.Scuba diving
For water sports of any kind - Bali is the place. And do try scuba diving - the world beneath the ocean is a different world and a much more beautiful world.

There are several hotels, resorts and even guest houses in Bali where you can stay. If you are looking for a great accomodation, do check out HotelsBaliaccomodation.com
