5 Best Experiences On Our Bali Budget Trip
We enjoyed exploring numerous places in Bali such as Lembongan island, Tanah lot temple, Pandawa beach, Uluwatu temple, Tagallanung waterfall, Bali safari, and Kintamani volcano. Following are the details of our 5 most amazing experiences in Bali:
1. Water Sports At Lembongan
Bali is home to a beautiful island called Nusa Lembongan. Located on the southeast coast of Bali, Lembongan is gaining tourist attractions these days with its electrifying watersport adventures. We heard a lot about this place and headed here to indulge in some water sports activities. Away from the traffic and hawkers sound, this mesmerizing island was a true delight. Snorkeling and scuba divings are the most sport here, giving a glimpse of vibrant tropical fish and coral reefs. We enjoyed this place as the energetic ambiance of this tranquil destination is worth exploring.
2. Divinity Of Tanah Lot
Another awesome experience of our Bali budget trip was the Tanah Lot temple. It is a stunning temple located offshore and exhibiting panoramic views of sunsets. It is an ancient temple known for its unique architecture and mesmerizing beauty. It is located in the Beraban village of the Tabanan regency. Its proximity from Kuta made us plan an excursion to Tanah Lot which surprised us with its mystic ambiance. We spent hours there admiring the beautiful sunset from the temple.

3. Unveiling Pandawa Beach
Pandawa beach is amongst the rarely explored beaches in Bali that purveys the most peaceful and reviving environment. We captured the stunning vistas of the Indian Ocean from the Pandawa Beach. The terrain and manmade limestone at Pandawa beach make it one of the most unique beaches in Bali. We reached here and was captured by the impeccable beauty of this beach. We enjoyed the leisurely hours here, reviving ourselves at our own pace.
4. Spirituality At Uluwatu Temple
Uluwatu temple enthralled us with its awesome location. This magnificent temple perched on the top of a cliff and is believed to be amongst the 6 key temples of Bali. Its dynamic architecture and the serene ambiance will surely make you fall in love with this spot. We also attended the energetic Kecak dance performances organized at a nearby amphitheater. Uluwatu temple was truly an amazing destination featuring Balinese architecture, traditional gateways, and ancient sculptures.
5. Kintamani Volcano
The Kintamani Volcano is locally known as Mount Batur and we planned to visit this beautiful active volcano which is surrounded by Batur caldera lake. We saw numerous trekkers indulging in adventurous excursions here. We were mesmerized by the astounding beauty of this attraction and must say, visiting an active volcano in itself will make you excited. Whatever you expect from this place, but the first glance of Mount Batur will surely leave you enticed.
Our Hotels In Bali On Budget Trip
We stayed at Rani Hotel & Spa in Kuta, Alam Puisi Villa in Ubud and at Coconuts Beach Resort in Nusa Lembongan. These are the Bali best budget hotels and they fit right into our itinerary. Rani hotel was located in the center of Kuta making it easier for us to commute to popular attractions. We were delighted as this property is surrounded by numerous Indian restaurants. Other major attractions were the Kuta beach and Discovery mall.
We were not much happy with Coconut beach resort in Lembongan, however, Alam Puisi Villa was the best stay we could have expected on our honeymoon. The comfortable ambiance, gratifying staff, and delicious food made our stay even more beautiful at Alam Puisi Villa.
Food In Bali On Budget Trip
We liked eating Indian cuisine at Ganesha, and the Kailash Parbat in Kuta. The restaurant at Alam Puisi Villa was also delicious and an average meal costs around 5,00,000 Indonesian Rupiah.
Shopping In Bali
We had an amazing shopping experience during our Bali budget travel. We headed to Ubud government art and culture center and purchased some really beautiful and exclusive items. We also visited other shopping markets in Ubud, including those around Ubud monkey forest, and Tanah Lot temple.
