I have an amazing opportunity to go to Bali for a weekend while in Asia for work.
I would be getting into the airport shortly after midnight (assuming all goes well) on the Friday and leaving at 6pm on the Monday.
I'm trying to figure out the best place to stay to get the most out of my experience.
I am not a big partier and would want somewhere with local restaurants and shops but still peaceful. I love the beach and snorkeling. I will be on my own, so a place where I can get around safely is also important. Unfortunately, because of the short timeframe, I also would look for a place not too far from the airport that would allow me to check in late.
Suggestions on area to look into, actual accommodations, and things I cannot miss (because who knows if I will ever be able to make it back again) would be greatly appreciated.
