Known for rice terraces and beaches, waterfalls and cute cafes, there’s no debating that Bali makes a perfect place for a vacation. Whether one’s goal is to detox and deepen their yoga practice, relax on the beach with a Bintang or to experience a rich culture, one will find complete bliss in Bali.
I was planning a vacation with my wife and kid. Since it was the month of June, most of the destinations have monsoons. Frankly, we didn’t have many places to go, so we thought we thought that Bali would be a perfect destination for us to enjoy a vacation. Also, we heard that there are several things to do in Bali with kids. So, while planning our trip, we got a satisfaction that our kid will not get bored. Since we already knew about TravelTriangle, it was no brainer us to finalize with the travel organizer.

Top Things To Do In Bali With Kids
We are glad that we choose to visit Bali as there was so much to do in that lovely weather. The 6 days of our trip let us visit the best spots that we will cherish forever.
1. Bounty Cruise Bali
Out of so many things to do in Bali with kids, going on a cruise tops it all. So, we also chose to go on Bounty Cruise Bali. There were several attractive cruise activities for the entertainment of travelers. Also, the food from the International buffet lunch was immensely delicious. Like many, we also tried our hands at spectacular cruise activities like snorkeling, banana boat, canoeing, village tour, and 44 meters of water sliding. All in all, it was a fantastic time we spent on the cruise and our kid loved it too.
2. Tanha Lot Tour
Now was the time to explore Tanha lot and as we saw in pictures and videos, it’s indeed a breathtaking place. We also paid a visit to the famous Tanha lot temple. Moreover, witnessing sunset in the Indian ocean was something that added great charm to our overall vacation.
One thing we loved about the place that I was highly influenced by the Hindu culture. There were also various cafes nearby where one could spend good amount of time
3. Barong Kintamani sightseeing
Next we went for a Kintamani tour which was an impressive experience to visit Kintamani with a breathtaking view of an active volcano and lake. The tour offered us to visit various places of interest; Tampak Siring Temple / Tirta Empul Temple and Kintamani, Batur Volcano. This tour is also offered us the wide opportunity to see the beautiful handicraft in Bali which is made by locals. Moreover, a professional tour guide was always with us and described various places.
4. A Visit To Ubud Monkey Forest
On day 3, we visited Ubud Monkey Forest and we loved every bit of time spent there. The monkeys were generally peaceful unless they were provoked. Also, we found it to be a cleanly-kept sanctuary for monkeys where they were happy, healthy and really beautiful to look at. The groundskeeper fed the monkeys twice during our 1-hour visit and the monkeys looked so incredibly happy. This is one place that should definitely be visited while visiting Bali.
Shopping In Bali
Frankly, we did not buy much stuff. But, we visited 3 markets where there was hand made paintings, handmade soaps, and various handicrafts. Apart from this, if somebody is interested in buying gold, then there is a specific market for gold. There are various things to buy from Bali such as handmade dupa, Balinese silver jewellery, Kopi Luwak coffee and chocolates, and organic beauty products. All in all, travelers can have a fantastic time while shopping in Bali.
Restaurants In Bali
Our package included breakfast, so, we used to leave the hotel after enjoying a hearty morning meals. For lunches and dinners, we would go to various local restaurants. We’ve also had lunch at Pit Stop Burger on the first Day. We also tried various street food include French fries and chicken fried. Rest, we Pizza hut, KFC and McDonalds used to be out ultimate hot spots when we wanted to satiate our hunger. Also, if travelers are looking for Indian food in Bali, they will surely not get disappointed. There are several Indian restaurants in Bali where they can gorge a wide range of Indian delicacies.
