Destinations & Night Stays ( Kindly refer to the below itinerary for details )
During the first day of your one-week Bali trip, visit the principal attractions in Ubud. Start at Jl. Raya Ubud, the main street, and go from east to west. Visit the Puri Saren Agung, better known as the Royal Palace of Ubud. The royal family still lives in this palace, so you can only visit part of it.
During the second day of your one-week Bali tour, I recommend visiting the surroundings of Ubud.
Go to Tegalalang, the most popular rice fields on the island, in the morning. If you’re lucky enough to time your 7-day Bali trip with the best time to visit Bali, the rice terraces will have an intense green color. In addition to strolling through the rice paddies, you can enjoy their swings with spectacular views and photograph some of the main sites of the island.
For the third day of your trip, I recommend climbing the Batur volcano and seeing the sunrise from its summit. This was, without a doubt, the best experience of my trip to Bali in 7 days. Your guide will pick you up very early (around 2:30 a.m.) but having eggs for breakfast that have been cooked with the volcano’s steam is priceless.
On the fourth day, I recommend visiting the eastern temples: Pura Besakih, Tirta Gangga, and Lempuyang.
Get up early to head to Pura Besakih, also known as Mother Temple for being the largest temple in Bali. You would need all day to see it in its entirety, since it’s composed of 22 independent temples. The most popular area and the one I recommend you to visit is Gunung Agung, where there is a 7-level temple that represents the universe. Each of the 7 levels is connected by a stairway that only Hindus are allowed to climb.
Although Bedugul is somewhat remote, it’s worth spending a day here during your one-week trip to Bali.
In this mountainous area to the north of the island, there’s a trio of beautiful lakes (Tamblingan, Buyan and Bratan) that are completely different from the landscape you will have seen so far.
I recommend you visit one of its waterfalls (Banyumala Twin, Git Git, or Sekumpul), the temple of Ulun Danu Beratan , located on the waters of Lake Bratan, and the Handara gate.
For the penultimate day of your trip to Bali in a week I recommend you visit the most touristy area of the island. It isn’t my favorite area, but you can’t leave Bali without seeing Kuta, Seminyakl and Canggu, where surfers, Australians looking to party, and the best “beach clubs” on the island come together.
These three cities are on the seashore in the southwest of Bali, and on your way there from Ubud, you can stop at Taman Ayun Temple and Alas Kedaton (this second one is totally optional).
Depending on the type of traveler you are, I recommend one of these three locations to spend the day:
To finish your week-long tour around Bali, I recommend you visit the Bukit Badung peninsula, the piece of land that juts out to the south of the island.
This area stands out for its amazing white sand beaches, its cliffs and its incredible luxury resorts.
Some of the most famous beaches are Padang Padang (where the movie “Eat Pray Love” was filmed), Tebing Pantai Balangan, with its wonderful cliff views, and Pantai Tegal Wangi, which hides a cave.
