  1. Great and well planned Bali itinerary) We are going to visit Bali for the first time so we gonna book a package tour via We heard good reviews about them from our friends. It would be great if you advice us a hotel to stay in Bali. Thanks!

    1. Hi Joyce,
      Thank you for your kind words. If you like fun filled activities and happening place kuta and seminyak is the best. If you like countryside and slow paced then ubud is a great choice. If you prefer quiet and luxurious beach area then i highly recommend nusa dua. Hope that helps.

  2. Thanks! Spent amazing time in Bali!) Really enjoyed Ubud and Kuta.

  3. Wao! seems like you had a great great time in Bali. can you please guide me which time of the year is Best for visiting this beautiful place?

    1. Hi Roaming Routes,
      Bali is tropical sunshine all year round but typically it is drier in the middle of the year. There is also Day of Silence (Nyepi) happening yearly in March whereby your movements are restricted like no electricity, no entertainment, no working, no moving about. Tourist might wanna avoid that day
