'Om suastiastu' and welcome to beautiful Bali. A place that evokes an image of paradise in name alone, Bali is every beach loving, culture seeking traveller's idea of perfection. Touching down today, you'll transfer to your hotel in the cultural hub of Ubud. Surrounded by lush green rice paddies and a haven for yoga enthusiasts, artists and foodies alike, Ubud is something special. Settle into your hotel this afternoon, then meet up with your Travel Director and fellow travellers this evening to get a glimpse of what's to come, before getting to know each other a little better over dinner.
Today will be packed with adventure, so be sure to fuel up at breakfast. We'll kick things off with a visit to Mas Village and a traditional wood carving workshop, before continuing on to explore the lush green terraces of Tegallalang, one of the most defining views of Bali. Up next, a visit to a coffee plantation to learn how our favourite morning beverage is made (with samples, of course), before we move on for a lunch with a difference. What's the difference? Well, when was the last time you tucked into a traditional Balinese meal with a view of a sacred volcano mountain in the background? Still not done with the day, we'll make our way back to Ubud for a visit to 'Puri Saren Agung', or Ubud Palace, the former official residence of the royal family of Ubud. Finally, we'll finish the epic first day of your Bali value tour with a trip to Ubud Market, where there's time to shop for locally made art and handicrafts.
Yesterday was a busy one, so today you have the chance to slow down and explore Ubud your way today. With your free time you could choose to visit the famous monkey forest, where over 700 long-tailed grey macaques roam free amongst the temple ruins. Alternatively, you could take part in one of our optional experiences to embrace the true spirit of Ubud. In the morning, perhaps join our cooking class to learn the secrets of traditional Balinese food, or in the afternoon get to know your inner yogi with a spiritual yoga experience, where all levels are welcome.
Beach bliss awaits us in Sanur later today, but not before an action-packed day of sightseeing. The serene 17th century Ulun Danu temple will be our first stop, where a temple dedicated to the Goddess of the Waters is built on the small islands of Lake Bratan. From here we'll continue on to Mengwi and the temple of Taman Ayun. Built in 1634, the temple is surrounded by a wide moat and has a series of courtyards which feature a number of Meru (multi-tiered shrines). Still not templed out, our final visit of the day will be to Bali's most photographed temple, Tanah Lot. Perched precariously on a wave whipped rock, this 16th century icon is still a major crowd pleaser. Feeling culturally satisfied, we'll then end the day to the gentle sound of the waves, in laidback Sanur.
Is there any better feeling than waking up knowing that the ocean is just a stone's throw away? And even better - this morning is entirely free for you to do as much, or as little, as you like. Take a dip in the sea, top up your tan, or maybe choose to join our optional tour of Bali's capital city, Denpasar, travelling in style in a vintage VW Kombi. This afternoon we'll be heading to Uluwatu, a gorgeous stretch of headland that's also home to the Pura Uluwatu temple, perched high above the sea. This evening, we'll be treated to a traditional Balinese Kecak dance performance, before a dinner of fresh seafood is served right on Jimbaran beach. Perfection.
Another incredible day in Sanur stretches before you this morning, with plenty of optional experiences to tailor it your way. Sea lovers won't be able to resist our optional full day catamaran and snorkelling cruise to the neighbouring island of Nusa Lembongan, while those who want to learn more about local life could choose to join our Balinese Daily Life experience. A market visit, a trek through the lush rice fields and a visit to an ancient fertility temple are all on the agenda here, offering a unique glimpse into Bali's beautiful culture. This afternoon, take advantage of Sanur's gorgeous seaside location and relax on the beach, then this evening why not see out your Bali tour package in style with a final optional dinner at the ageless and elegant Tandjung Sari Hotel.
And just like that, your magical week in Bali has come to an end. You've explored stunning temples, devoured Nasi Goreng, been the recipient of a thousand warm smiles and made wonderful new friends, and you'll be leaving today feeling satisfied and nostalgic. Transferring to the airport for your onward flight, we'll look forward to seeing you again someday soon.

Your tour gives you a wonderful insight into local life in Bali, with the first stop at a bustling market to see first-hand how the local people barter and trade their wares. Next, you’ll visit a local Subak cultivation system and go trekking through lush green rice fields with five small rivers winding through them. After your trek, take a well-deserved break at a cafe and relax with a local ‘Bali Coffee’ while taking in the peaceful scenery. Feeling refreshed, you’ll then head to one of Bali’s hidden gems, Pura Batu Ngaus, an ancient fertility temple that stands on a remote rock in the ocean.
