The lush greens, pristine beaches, magnificent sunsets, divine forests, and calm waters of Bali makes it a perfect getaway destination from the hustle and bustle of the world. Looking for something similar and more, Sudha and her husband landed on this Island of Gods in a hope to get closer to nature and embrace the tranquility hidden within its beauty in 9 days in Bali.
My husband and I have always been a fan of destination that blankets numerous beaches and showcases the beauty of nature at its best. After taking a trip to Thailand last year, we decided to spend 9 days in Bali in order to unwind the unspoiled wonders of mother nature. Moreover, we had heard about how scrumptious the Indonesian food was and that simply acted as a magnet for us. The vibrant culture, refreshing nature, and the delectable cuisine were enough to make us start planning our escapade to Bali. With the booking, planning, transfers, and all the tidbit responsibilities being taken care of by TravelTriangle, we surely had a smooth and cherishable trip.

Weather In Bali In July
Being a tropical island nation, the climatic conditions of Bali are bearable almost throughout the year. Bali weather in June may be a bit humid in Kuta and around the beaches, but the accompanying breeze brushing through our hair and against our skin made the whole experience in Bali more pleasant. When we went to Ubud and the mountain regions, we were welcomed with open hearts and cloudy weather that simply took our breath away. The less polluted air, impeccable weather patterns, and a cool breeze made our whole experience even better!
Some Of The Exquisite Places To Visit In Bali
Here are some of the enchanting places that we visited on our Bali trip:
1. Tanah Lot Temple
Also known as the floating temple, Tanah Lot Temple took our breath away with its beauty. One of the most gorgeous temples in Bali, Tanah Lot exhibited surreal sunset views. This Hindu temple helped us remain in touch with our culture and made us encounter an extremely overwhelming experience. The essence of spirituality, mesmerizing views and the calm sounds of waves was surely one of the memorable experiences we had.
2. Banyumala Waterfalls
Nestled within the lush greens, gushing milky stream of Banyumala Waterfalls aka the twin falls was one of the most beautiful and dream-like waterfalls in Bali. Embracing the beauty of these waterfalls helped us relax, rejuvenate, and get de-stressed. This wonder made us so grateful and appreciative of the mother nature. The words are surely not enough to describe how amazing our experience was.
3. Seminyak Beach
When traveling to a foreign land, it is important for us to indulge in each and every kind of experience. We surely couldn’t miss out on experiencing the vibrant and vivacious nightlife of the beautiful island nation. Not only the nightlife, but this is one of those beaches in Bali that also displays beautiful scenic views of the sun setting and falling on the gold to dark sand. I found this to be one of the best elements of our 9 days in Bali itinerary.

4. Nusa Penida
Nothing less than heaven on earth, Nusa Penida blankets a countless number of exquisite marvels of nature. The pristine white sandy beaches, clear blue waters, pinkish sunsets, and the ever so pleasant weather soothed our souls and relaxed our minds like nothing else. Traveling for 9 days in Bali and spending great moments in this location was surely one of the best decisions we have taken.
5. Taman Ayun Temple
The mesmerizing location and magnificent architecture of this place of worship, Taman Ayun Temple is one of the major landmarks in Bali. The massive, green gardens enveloping lotus ponds, expansive pools, and the surreal aura of Taman Ayun Temple makes it one of the must-visit places in this island nation.
Our Hotels In Bali
When we were planning to spend 9 days in Bali, one of our main concerns was the hotel. The hotel that offers home-like vibes, friendly staff, and a comfortable atmosphere was of utmost importance and that is exactly what we received, in fact, a lot more. Spending 8 nights in Bali definitely didn’t seem like a challenge once we reached our accommodations. Both of our hotels- Swissbel and Alindra Villa, were packed with amazing amenities that made our stay at the hotel extremely convenient. The food served at these hotels was not only delectable but also really healthy. Swissbel offered a massive swimming pool that took away all of our fatigue and tiredness from the long journey.

Food In Bali
Being a couple of foodies, one of the main things to do in our bucket list whenever we take a trip to a foreign land is to try the authentic cuisine of that destination. When in Bali, we had to give the Bali food a try and we are so glad we did. The Indonesian cuisine served in the hotels we were staying at was one of the most scrumptious food we have ever indulged in. The cost of food in Bali was also such that it didn’t burn a hole in our pockets. A few restaurants and coffee shops that we paid a visit to included Anomali Coffee in Ubud, Single Fin near Padang Padang Beach for a sunset dinner, Potato Head in Seminyak to experience the nightlife, Seafood near Jimbram, Gloria Jeans Coffee at Tanah Lot, and Dulang Kafe Kuta Square.
Shopping In Bali
Bali is nothing less than a paradise to spend some money without feeling guilty. Ubud market is full of local products that one can buy as souvenirs for friends and family back home. One should definitely learn some bargaining skills before planning to shop in Bali as the rates that are quoted as much higher than what you actually need to pay. But learning the art of bargaining without upsetting the sellers should be the utmost priority. Apparel, accessories, and footwear for ladies can be easily found in the markets in Bali. Moreover, it is advised to go shopping for shopping in Ubud markets early in the morning in order to buy the items at the best rates possible. With so many options of products to buy, shopping may slightly exceed your budget for 9 days in Bali, but the experience is totally worth the money.
What To Pack For 9 Days In Bali
No matter how long the trip is, it is always good to pack light and smart. Here are the basic things that you must pack for a trip to Bali:
