Bali is one of the most popular honeymoon destinations in the world. No mater how often you have been to the beach or lie down of the golden sandy beaches, you will never get bored of the blue skies and a canopy of tropical trees. Our couple, just like the others were not able to stay away from the peaceful and calm ammbience of Bali on their holiday. Here is all about their romantic Bali travel experience.
I chose this destination after rounds of discussion with my wife. She wanted a place where we can enjoy different places rather than just beaches etc. Before finalizing Bali, I studied various places in Asia for Honeymoon destination. Our primary requirement was temples, beaches and trek/trail. Bali has it all and with this we finalized the destination and it was one of the best Bali travel experience.

While 6 days are enough time for a holiday, in Bali you will feel them to be very less. This is what all we did to make our Bali travel experience unique and memorable.
1. Visit the Volcano Mt. Batur
In Kintamani, we visited active volcano Mt. Batur. It was a mesmerizing view with cold black ash spread over the base. We had a good local lunch here in hotel. We also witnessed live after smoke from Mt. Agung which erupted 4 days ago.We saw beautiful rice terraces along the return route and did swings and photo shoot inside huge nests. Visit to Celuk village for Gold & Silver production shops. We saw professional Balinese people who are skilled and art soul to develop the creative design and variety of products related to the gold and silvers.

The day after loads of adventure ended up we being soothed and relaxed. These adventure activities made our Bali travel exeperience fun and advenuruous.
3. Take a Religious De-tour
The fifth day visit to one of the best places in Bali was Tanah lot temple. The beautiful rock formation temple surrounded by Indian Ocean. The view is fabulous here. Here we clicked some of the best couple photos and had snacks. We also had the chance to drink the holy spring water available here. Not just this but I also had the opportunity to hold the holy snake in hand.
Places To Stay In Bali
Our Stay in Bali was in two regions, we had our stay at The Rani Hotel and Spa in Kuta and The Alam Puisi Villa in Ubud. Both the properties are 4 stars. The hotel rooms were very beautiful, clean and neat with all the basic things in place especially the hotel in Ubud was very attractive. The services offered by hotels were quite good with quick response. The staff at both the hotels behaved in well mannered way for all visitors. The food hygiene was awesome with freshly cut fruits along with bakery items.
Food In Bali
During our stay at Bali, we visited multiple hotels and restaurants in Kuta & Ubud. The local food tastes different with unique flavour and aroma. we loved one Indian restaurant in Lipo mall named Sattvik by Nature which was best in Indian taste. The service was slow, but the quality and taste was awesome we ever had in Bali. The prices were a little high as compared to another restaurant though. Apart from Sattvik, we also visited The Golden Saffron hotel in Jalan raya Kuta, Ganesha Ek Sanskruti Authentic Indian Restaurant and Bar in Giyanyar, Ubud. The restaurants in Kuta were truly amazing and we loved the food at these places.
Street Shopping In Bali
We did shop in Bali at Krisna Mall near Kuta. Our shopping experience was good as we mostly buy household decorative things along with few clothes. We also shop at local handicraft market which was awesome. We suggest travellers to buy the Luwak Coffee, Handicraft wall Masks, wooden toys etc.
