3 nights Ubud/ 3 nights Seminyak to see the Bali highlights?

Hello! I'm traveling to Bali next week as a solo female American 40 year old. I'd like to see the best of the island with the too little time I have!

I'd like to start with 3 night/4 days in beautiful/safe Ubud and then transition hotels to Seminyak for the last three evenings. I'll be using both locations as jumping off points for day trips.

From Ubud, I'm thinking of spending one or two days just walking around town/surrounding areas (and at night, seeing some shows and eating great food), one day on a bike tour of the area and then the last two days daytripping out of Ubud to possibly Jatiluwih or other recommendations.. insert your ideas here please!

From Seminyak, I'd like to see some beaches and nightlife...spending a day or two walking up and down the beaches (or on bicycle or scooter) to check out Legian, Kuta and Kerobokan. I'd also like to take a day trip to Pur Tanah Lot and another day trip to Sanur or Jimbaran.

Please advise! What should I change? What are your MUST SEE recommendations or favorite memories (don't care much about monkeys and have seen my share of elephants!) I'm very fit and motivated but simply want to immerse myself in the beauty and culture of Bali without feeling like I missed out on something absolutely spectacular (yes, I know.. 6 nights and 7 days is too little time but I'll do my best!!)

Thank you in advance for your advice! I'm so excited to see this beautiful island!

1. Re: 3 nights Ubud/ 3 nights Seminyak to see the Bali highlights?

Have a look at the Top Questions about Bali on the Bali Forum page (this is the Ubud page) and here you will find a topic on day trips, many of them are, or can be easily be done from Ubud. These were compiled by regulars as our favourite sites to include in day trips.

I think your plan is very good. The only advice I would add is to stop and smell the frangipanis. Don't, because you have so little time, be on the move all the time. Linger over meals, just sit and watch the world go by, especially in Ubud where, if you do this, you will see heaps of little things going on with the locals that you won't if you move too quickly.

Try to have lunch at one of the great restaurants at Tegalallang if you can, overlooking the rice terraces, it's not far from Ubud.
