Bali – The Best Honeymoon Destination in Asia

Bali – The Best Honeymoon Destination in Asia 

A large island and province in the middle of Indonesia. It’s a haven for surfers and beach bums alike, with an abundance of travelers, yogis, photographers, and temple-goers flocking to its shores each year.  Bali has a lot of western influence, from diverse restaurants to yoga classes, and its most “foreigner-friendly” island in the vast archipelago. Here’s my ultimate Bali travel guide with tips to plan your trip to Indonesia!

  • Canggu (Honeymoon): A romantic ride into the sunset isn’t just meant for the movies, in fact, this is one of the best things to do in Bali for honeymooners! Ride down the beach with your paramour, crossing river creeks, ambling through tranquil villages and rice paddy fields, with a stop or two at temples and caves. Canggu is one of the best places to visit in Bali for a honeymoon. You could even go vintage and take a horse-drawn bed ride.

Travel guide:

Bali has its own international airport, named Ngurah Rai International Airport. If you are traveling from India then you have to come via Bangkok as there is no direct flight from India while from Singapore there is a direct flight to Bali.

From Singapore, return flight to Bali would cost you around SGD 150 which would further depend on time and the season. However, if you are in Bali, then you can book a cab/taxi for the whole day ( 8 hours) which would cost you around SGD 60.

Bali is a beautiful and peaceful island where you can enjoy your honeymoon as well as vacations. Taxi drivers, as well as people in Bali, are very loyal and helpful.

Best way to book a villa in Ubud or the beach area is via airbnb.com. Here, I would like to inform you that I am not promoting any company or website, I am just sharing my own experience as it’s cheap and the best. You can easily get a villa at about SGD 50 to SGD 100 per night where you can enjoy your stay with pool etc.

 

Best time to visit Bali is from July to August and December to the first week of January.

Conclusion: Don’t listen to what they say, go explore, because bali is always a good idea
