My Future Wife and I are going to Bali for our honeymoon in October. We will be leaving on Thursday October 9th from Indianapolis and arriving in Denpasar Saturday Oct 11th around 2:20pm. We will have 13 nights in Bali before we leave on Friday Oct 23rd to be back in Indianapolis Saturday Oct 24th.
Our budget is 6500 usd for the week including travel. I have budgeted 75 usd a day for food and 100 usd a day for lodging. I know we can spend alot more or alot less.
We are very adventurous with food and love to try local stuff, no chain restaurants for us (we dont expect chain resturants in Bali anyway). Is a average of 75 usd a day for 2 people about right? some days more, some days less.
My Wife wants our first few days to be relaxing on the beach. We want someplace quiet and calm but to have local flavor, No Crowded Beaches! Sanur seems like a good option especially cause its closer to the airport than some other places. We are definitely up for suggestions on this part of our trip though.
I want to do some diving while i am in Bali. While I know all of Bali is amazing for diving, I have been really excited to head to the Gili islands to experience everything that it has to offer. I also plan on doing atleast one dive in the first few days while my wife does the spa thing. Maybe something around Sanur. My wife will be joining me on most of the dives.
Lastly we want to do a little site seeing and experience the culture of Bali. It sounds like its pretty cut and dry that Ubud is the place for this.
Our first shot at the Itinerary looks something like this
1: Leave Indy to SFO
2: Leave SFO to DPS
3: Sanur Beach (travel day)
4: Sanur Beach
5: Sanur Beach
6: Sanur Beach
7: Sanur Beach
8: Gili Islands (travel day)
9: Gili Islands
10: Gili Islands
11: Gili Islands
12: Gili Islands
13: Ubud (travel day)
16: Leave DPS for SFO
17: Leave SFO to IND
Thats 5 nights in Sanur, 5 nights in the Gili Islands, and 3 Nights in Ubud.
