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!
