2 week bali itinerary

Bali is easily one of my favorite islands in the world! The famed Island of the Gods has endless amounts of things to see and do during your 2 weeks in Bali including the deeply spiritual and unique culture, volcanic landscapes, countless waterfalls, rugged cliff faces, sandy beaches, tropical islands, world-class surf breaks, iconic rice terraces, elephant sanctuaries, 5-star resorts, yoga retreats, buzzing nightlife, healthy cafes, water parks and much more!

Having spent a lot of time in Bali over the years I know the island like the back of my hand which is why I am certain that this 2 Week Bali Itinerary is the only guide you’ll need!



Here is an overview of an ideal 2 Week Bali Itinerary with my recommendations of places to visit in this order:

• Canggu (3 days)

• Bedugul (2 days)

• Ubud (3 days)

• Nusa Islands (4 days)

• Uluwatu (2 days)


Have you got travel insurance for Bali? I know that nobody likes to talk about this stuff but accidents can happen and having World Nomads Insurance can save you thousands of dollars if something goes wrong. 




Canggu, as of late, is the hottest tourist spot in Bali attracting digital nomads, surfers, skaters, yogis, foodies and likeminded people from all over the world. Canggu is NOT to be missed on your 2 weeks Bali itinerary.

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.

Canggu has thousands of accommodation options to choose from, so I have narrowed it down to a few of the best places to stay in Canggu. See the list of accommodations below that I personally recommend:

Luxury: Villa Vanilla

Villa Vanilla is a modern 3-bedroom villa that sleeps up to six people. Just 500m from Berawa Beach in Canggu, this accommodation features a swimming pool, equipped kitchen and a spa centre.

Bedugul is the Real Bali as I like to call it and it’s one of the best places to visit in Bali. Located just one hour and thirty minutes drive from Canggu is the beautiful region of Bedugul – a mountainous lakeside village in the central-north of the island and this where the true Balinese culture can be found.

Bedugul is most famous for its twin crater lakes, countless waterfalls, panoramic viewpoints, traditional villages and more. I recommend spending at least two days of your Bali itinerary here to explore the best of the best that Bedugul has to offer.

Ubud is the perfect place to immerse yourself in nature for a few days away from the rat race. Whether you want to unwind and relax or adventure and explore, Ubud has the best of both worlds!

BALI ITINERARY – DAY 9, 10, 11 & 12:


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 Bali trip!

A short thirty-minute boat ride 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 2 Week Bali 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.

View Full Blog Post: 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 dropped directly to the pier at Pemelisan Harbor. The boat trip takes approximately 45-minutes to the Nusa Islands.

Uluwatu is located on the Bukit Peninsula in Bali’s south and it is a must-see region on the famed Island of the 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 and a must-do in Bali. I highly recommend spending the last couple of days of your 2 Week Bali Itinerary in Uluwatu.

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.



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.

Click here to search all flights to Bali on Skyscanner



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.

Heading to Bali? ∼ Ultimate Bali Packing List



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.

Find All ∼ Bali Transport Services with Klook



The currency in Bali is Rupiah (IDR) and the exchange rate is approximately $1 USD = 14,000 IDR.

Purchasing a sim card in Bali is very cheap and simple. You can purchase a Bali SIM Card online in advance and pick it up at the airport when you arrive.

    Hi Jonny! Your itinerary is really helpful! 🙂 However, we want to go to Gili. Where is your least favorite place on your list so we can check and hopefully we can squeeze in Gili Islands? Thanks in advance! Happy travels! 🙂

      October 14, 2019 / 2:09 pm

      Heya, glad you loved this post! I can’t say I have a least favorite place but if I had to choose I would skip Bedugul and go to Gili instead. Hope this helps and enjoy 🙂

    Hello, great post! Planning on going in May 2020. Wondering about your thought and travel to Bali for 3 ladies over 50+.? Active 50+, just don’t want to end up in party central, lol. If we were younger id love to carry just a back pack, but how easy is it to get around with small suitcase? Thanks for any info

      November 22, 2019 / 2:03 pm

      Thanks for reading and glad you loved this guide! Yes moving around with a small suitcase is fine. I have had suitcases on my scooter in the past but if you are not comfortable with that you can hire a driver to transport you around. Enjoy!

    Thanks so much for sharing this it has helped us so much!
    We are looking at going to Bali June 2020 and are hoping to visit: Ubud, Nusa Islands, Gili, Central Bali(maybe) and Uluwater – as well as Seminyak/Canggu/Sanur.

    Please let us know if this is possible and what order to visit them in! Also which out of Seminyak/Canggu/Sanur is most important to visit! Also please let me know if we are missing some must see destinations!!

      December 29, 2019 / 10:59 pm

      I am glad you found this guide useful! Yes that is all possible, the order I would recommend would be Canggu, Ubud, Gili Islands, Nusa Islands and finish in Uluwatu! Another great place worth checking out for 2 day that is off the beaten track is Amed in East Bali. I hope this all helps 🙂

    Hi Jonny,

    Thank you for the great article, Bali looks so amazing! My fiancee and I will be going to Bali for our 2 week honeymoon in September 2020. I’ve seen your most recent reply, but we were thinking for sure Ubud, Uluwatu, (Canguu or Bedugul), and (Nusa or Gili islands). Any recommendations on the last two? Bedugul seems amazing, but wondering if it can be done in a full day trip from somewhere else. Nusa just seems like a most see, but Gili looks equally breathtaking! We’re looking to only stay in 4 places max.


    • Jonny Melon
      January 4, 2020 / 5:13 am

      Hello, glad you found this guide helpful! In answer to your question, you could stay in Canggu and spend a day visiting some attractions in Bedugul and I would recommend the Nusa Islands as there is much more to do than the Gili Islands. Hope this helps and Enjoy!

    Also, great job with all the photos!

      January 28, 2020 / 3:39 pm

      Hi, thanks for reading. I would say around $1500 for 2 weeks. Hope this helps and enjoy!

    This is exactly what I was looking for! Thanks 🙂
