Arrive at Denpasar airport where your group leader will pick you up to take you to our hotel in Kuta to check you in. You can then relax by the pool, at the beach or explore Kuta itself before we head out in the evening for our ‘Welcome Dinner and Drinks’ where you will meet the rest of your group.
Today we explore the culture of Bali as we are going to two of its most famous temples – Tanah Lot which is set on a rock formation in the sea & the Royal Temple of Tamun Ayun. On our way back to Kuta we stop off at La Plancha for an ice cold drink & to watch the sun set on our first full day in Bali before we get ready to enjoy the nightlife that Kuta is famous for!
On our third day we hit the beach! We learn to surf in the morning, with lessons led by our laidback local surf instructors at Kuta Beach. Then it’s a short drive up the coastline to visit the beautiful Padang Padang Beach and we hit our final stop of the day at Uluwatu Temple.
It’s time to go to the beautiful town of Ubud – on the way we will get dressed up in some traditional Balinese attire and visit Batuan Temple. Afterwards, we’ll cool off with a dip in a stunning natural waterfall. In Ubud itself, we stop off to visit the “little locals” at the Monkey Forest and relax by the pool or explore the local markets as we take an evening to just chill out after a busy three days.
In the morning we head to a local primary school for the unique opportunity to spend time in class with the local kids and stop for a coffee at a local plantation where you can see how the world’s most expensive coffee is made (you will be very surprised!). We’ll have lunch overlooking an active volcano and the afternoon will be spent wandering around the famous Rice Terraces of Ubud.
Let’s explore the islands! We board a boat to the picturesque island of Gili Trawangan and settle into our beachside accommodation before getting on the only mode of transport available on the island (push bike) to cycle around, see the sights and marvel at an amazing sunset! Then in the evening its time to party… island style!
For our last day together, we spend the day island hopping – heading to some of the best snorkeling spots in Indonesia and making the most of some amazing beaches! This evening we enjoy a farewell dinner and party in style, to celebrate having just had the best seven days of your life!
