Hi! I know people get irritated when it's clear someone hasn't researched before asking questions, but this is somewhat of a special circumstance. My husband & I canceled our dream trip to Kenya last week over recent terrorist activities (and we are not the type to scare easily) & are scrambling to find alternate locations, possibly leaving as early as next week. So I've not had much time to do any sort of proper research. Bali is #1 on the list b/c of ease of obtaining a visa, beach, forests, cultural activities & seems like we could more or less wing it once we got there (and read a guidebook in our limited spare time).
If we went, it would be for 12 nights & tentatively be 4 nights each in Seminyak, Ubud & Nusa Dua or Jimbaran. We prefer high-end accomodations & do not like hopping around from town to town & prefer a semi-leisurely vacation, perhaps doing activities every other day & lounging around/reading at pool or beach & walking around the rest of the time & soaking in the atmosphere. Would these 3 locations for the 12 days sound OK? If so, in what order? As background, we are both 40 years old, do not like the party scene, do love a mix of pure relaxation & pretty intense physical activity (I run marathons but love yoga as cross-training), would like a mixture of beach/forest & we are basically pretty laid-back.
Any input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
