We are a couple in our mid/late-twenties that are planning to travel to Bali in January 2015. We will be spending 10 days travelling Thailand before we fly into Denpasar. We are undecided on where to stay in Bali…but based on posts in this forum have narrowed it down to Sanur, Legian or Seminyak. Please help! We will be on somewhat of a budget. We are not fancy and are definitely not looking for 5 star (or even 4 star) accommodations. We will just have our backpacks with us. Our #1 requirement is proximity to a nice beach. We plan to spend at least 1/2 our time in Bali relaxing on the beach. We also are looking for things to do during the day (fun restaurants, locals to chat with, shopping) and a decent nightlife. Nothing too wild, but we want the option to stay out late and have fun if the mood strikes.
What area do you recommend we stay? And can anyone recommend a specific hotel/hostel?
Thank you!Edited: 17 February 2014, 15:16
