Day 1 - Arrival in Bali
Welcome to Bali, or if we may say it in Bahasa Indonesian, it would sound like - 'Selamat Datang di Bali'.
Today, you'll be arriving at Denpasar Airport, where our country coordinator will meet you and take you to the accommodation in Kuta. Once you settle down and get over the jetlag, you can head off to the poolside, or go out and explore Kuta by yourself. Tonight, we'll gather for a group meetup and introduce ourselves to each other over some drinks and activities.
Day 2 - Time for some surfing lessons!
Today, we'll first go to visit the stunning Uluwatu Temple, and then return back to the beaches of Kuta where you can learn how to surf! Our local surf instructors are just amazing and you'll definitely have a great time conquering the waves! Later, you can relax by the beach or go for a traditional Balinese massage. Tonight, we'll all head out to enjoy the nightlife that Kuta is known for!
Day 3 - Relive the 'Eat Pray Love' moments!
Today is the day when we immerse ourselves in the Balinese culture! In the morning, we visit the magnificent Tanah Lot temple, which is set on a rock formation in the sea, before heading to the cultural heart of Bali, Ubud, where the movie 'Eat Pray Love' was shot. We'll binge on some local delicacies, walk around the markets and visit the Monkey Forest as well.
Day 4 - Head off to Mt. Batur
Today, we'll explore some of the local coffee plantations and see how the world’s most expensive coffee is made (you will be very surprised!). Later, we'll savor the lunch overlooking an active volcano and gazing at the mesmerizing views of Mt. Batur. Afterward, we'll explore the famous rice terraces of Ubud!
Day 5 - Visit a local primary school
Today, you'll get to experience something unique. Spend a day with the little ones in their classroom at a primary school and get playful. Later, we'll head off to a stunning natural waterfall and relax for a while, before going for a dinner with the entire group!
Day 6 - Time to explore the Gili Islands!
We'll hop on a boat and set out for the picturesque island of Gili Trawangan and settle into our beachside accommodation. Later, we'll get onto our push bikes and explore the place, before witnessing a breathtaking sunset. Tonight, we'll again binge on some local cuisine and party till late!
