10 DAY BALI ITINERARY – DAY 1 & 2:
Canggu, as of late, is the most popular tourist spot in Bali attracting digital nomads, surfers, skaters, yogis, foodies and just really down-to-earth people from all over the world. Canggu is NOT to be missed on your 10 day itinerary Bali.
The most convenient way to get from Denpasar Airport to Canggu upon arrival is to book a shared minivan or a private transfer online in advance. I always use Klook to book all of my transport, tours and activities in Bali as they are the most reputable and reliable tour company going around.

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 trip!
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.

10 DAY BALI ITINERARY – DAY 9 & 10:
Uluwatu is located on the Bukit Peninsula in Bali’s south and it is 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 Itinerary Bali in Uluwatu.

BEST TOURS IN BALI
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 Skyscanner.com 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.
There are a few ways of getting around Bali – scooter, motorbike, go-jek, grab taxi and private taxi. In my experience, the cheapest and most convenient way of getting around Bali is by scooter.
The cost of scooter hire is around $4 day and petrol can be bought for as little as 70 cents per litre.
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.

MY CAMERA GEAR
Everyday Camera: The most affordable mirrorless camera on the market! I personally use the Sony A7ii Mirrorless Camera on all of my adventures. It’s compact, lightweight and super easy to use for all levels of photography. A 28-70mm Sony lens is also included.

Selfie Stick: Everyone loves a good selfie, right!? The Sandmarc Metal Edition Selfie Stick is sleek, stylish and can extend to 1.2m. I find it much easier to take photos and videos with the GoPro when it is mounted to the Sandmarc Selfie Stick!
Camera Tripod: The Joby GorillaPod is suitable for all cameras. This tripod is easy to use and perfect for setting up a time-lapse video or even using it as a selfie stick. The legs are flexible so you can wrap it around a tree or a pole to get creative with your shot.
GoPro Dome: Have you ever wanted to capture those under/over water shots with the GoPro? This epic underwater GoPro dome housing is the best camera accessory to have to create the perfect 50/50 shot. I use mine every time I am in the ocean!
Memory Card: The best thing about SanDisk Extreme Pro is that it delivers maximum speed for images and videos. Having 64GB of storage means that you can store hundreds of files on this SD card for 2-3 days and not have to worry about running out of space.
External Hard Drive: As a photographer, my images and video files take up a lot of space on my MacBook so I use the WD Elements External Hard Drive to store everything. With 4TB worth of storage space, this is more than enough for 1 years worth of content.
