CANGGU

Canggu, as of late, is the most popular tourist spot in Bali attracting digital nomads, surfers, skaters, yogis, foodies, and travelers alike. Canggu is not to be missed on your 10 day Bali itinerary.

10 DAY ITINERARY BALI – DAY 3 & 4:

UBUD

Ubud is the central hub of Bali that is most famous for its rainforest yoga retreats, traditional arts and crafts, other-worldly rice terraces, raging waterfalls, monkey forests, and ancient holy sites!

BALI ITINERARY – DAY 5, 6, 7 & 8:

THE NUSA ISLANDS

The Nusa Islands in Bali are three of the most beautiful and most adventurous islands I have explored to date and it’s a must-see destination on your 10 day Bali itinerary!

View Full Blog Post → The Nusa Islands

A short thirty-minute boat from mainland Bali and you will arrive at the foreshores of the Nusa Islands.

Whether you are an adrenaline junkie who loves the thrill of heights and cliff jumping or a laid back beachgoer who loves those sun-kissed hammock days and snorkeling the reefs, the Nusa Islands has something for everyone to enjoy on their Bali 10 day itinerary!

I recommend beginning your Nusa Island’s adventure on Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan for the first 2 days and then transferring from here over to Nusa Penida for 2 days.

Search All → Nusa Island Tours with Klook

 

HOW TO GET TO THE NUSA ISLANDS

Ferries operate daily to Nusa Islands from Pemelisan Harbor in South East Bali. You can book the ferry online in advance to guarantee the lowest price.

Get your ticket → Ferry from Bali to Nusa Islands

The ferry ticket to the Nusa Islands also includes a hotel pick-up from your accommodation in Bali and a drop-off directly to the pier at Pemelisan Harbor. The boat trip takes approximately 45-minutes to reach the Nusa Islands.

10 DAY BALI ITINERARY – DAY 9 & 10:

ULUWATU

Uluwatu is located on the Bukit Peninsula in Bali’s south and it’s a must-see region on the famed Island Of Gods.

Uluwatu is most famous for its magnificent beaches but on top of that, you can find rugged limestone cliff faces, world-class surf breaks, insane sunset viewpoints, clifftop bars, health cafes, skate parks, traditional temples, and much more!

I think it is safe to say the Bukit Peninsula is one of my favorite places to hang out in Bali and I highly recommend spending the last couple of days of your 10 day Bali itinerary in Uluwatu.

BEST TIME TO VISIT BALI

The best time to visit Bali for perfect weather and fewer tourists is between the months of April and October.

The rainy season in Bali is typically from December through to February and this is also peak season for tourists arriving during the Christmas and New Year holiday season.

 

SEARCH ALL FLIGHTS TO BALI

I search and book all of my flights on CheapOAir which is the best online flight directory to find the cheapest and most convenient flights to Bali.

BALI TOURIST VISA

When entering Bali, there is a Visa On Arrival policy that allows tourists to stay for a maximum of 30-days at no cost.

If you wish to stay in Bali for more than 30-days you must pay USD $35 for the Visa On Arrival in order for you to be able to extend it at the immigration office located in Denpasar City.

You can only extend the 30-day visa to a 60-day visa and it requires a couple of visits to the immigration office to hand in your passport, do fingerprints and then pick up your passport a week later.

BALI TRANSPORTATION

When arriving in Bali, I recommend renting a scooter for your Bali itinerary 10 days. When you book online in advance this includes a drop-off to your accommodation with a full tank of gas.

If you are not comfortable riding a scooter on the crazy roads of Bali you can use Go-Jek and Grab Taxi services. Download the free app from the App Store and you’ll need a local number to register before you can start using the service.

If you are traveling solo, you can select the motorbike taxi option within the Go-Jek and Grab app’s which is by far the cheapest mode of transport to get you from A to B.

Don’t feel confident about getting on a scooter? Another great option for getting around Bali is to hire a private car and a driver for the day and experience all that the island has to offer.

Includes:

  • Experienced Driver
  • Hotel pick-up & drop-off
  • Mineral water
  • Petrol
