Step 2: Ubud or the essential steps of a 3-week (4-day) Bali itinerary

After the excitement of Kuta, Ubud is an invitation to serenity and immersion in Balinese culture.

Between hikes in the surrounding rice fields, the discovery of ancient temples, rafting and traditional dance performances, there is no shortage of activities! Ubud is the tourist village that allows you to shine in Bali.

A stay in Ubud is always an opportunity to discover the culture and traditions of the Island of the Gods.

Step 3: Visit Munduk between waterfalls and rice fields (2 days)

Munduk is a typical village perched in hills covered with jungles and rice fields.

Munduk has a unique charm with the colonial architecture of its old Dutch buildings against a backdrop of green mountains.

Hiking and communion with Nature are on the program.

During a stay in Bali, it is the step outside the beaten track that allows you to get away a little more from mass tourism in Bali even if over the years, Munduk is more and more frequented but everything remains between on the scale of a mountain village.

Step 4: Amed, its beach and its seabed (2d)

We leave the green Munduk and its mountains. It will take you at least 4 hours to reach the eastern tip of Bali and therefore Amed.

There is a “Mediterranean” atmosphere in Amed.

The coast is cut into a multitude of coves and dotted with fishing villages. Diving, snorkeling and sunbathing are on the program for our 3 weeks in Bali! During an itinerary in Bali, it is the essential tranquility and beach steps of the holidays.

Steps 5: The coral atolls of the Gili islands: Trawangan, Air and Meno (4d)

We put our backpacks on Gili Trawangan, a paradise island accessible by boat from Lombok and Bali.

This small piece of land, 2 km long, is bordered by white sand beaches. If you’re going on a 3-week trip to Bali like us, we strongly recommend that you take a few days’ excursion to the Gili Islands, which invite you to dive, snorkel and relax. You will be reconciled very quickly here with the beautiful beaches of postcards, especially if you were disappointed by these in Bali.

And don’t get the wrong Gili!

We compared in an article entitled “Which Gili Island to choose?”, Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno, Gili Air and a secret island that we found during our last trip which is located a little further south, Gili Asahan. Gili Asahan, A coral atoll off the beaten track where you only think of one thing once you arrive, stay there.

Step 6: Stay in Kuta south of Lombok between jungle and heavenly beaches (3d)

Kuta Lombok is located south of the island of Lombok 70km (43 miles) from the Gili islands. It takes about 2 hours of road punctuated by villages, various plantations, palm groves, to reach the famous bay of Kuta.

If you are looking for heavenly and deserted beaches, you have found where to put your bags!

Still unknown to most tourists who stay in Bali, do not miss the beauty of the landscapes of southern Lombok. A step that you can add like us during a 3-week tour in Bali and Indonesia.

Step 7: Sidemen or stay in an authentic village inside Bali (2d)

Sidemen is a tiny village located in the heart of one of the most beautiful regions of the island of Bali.

Mount Agung dominates the valley.

Surrounded by mountains and rice fields, the village is a cultural and artistic center. Immersion far from mass tourism guaranteed. We recommend this small village lost in the middle of the rice fields and surrounded by lush vegetation.

Step 8: Sanur and Nusa Lembongan (2d)

Nusa Lembongan is an island 6km long and 3km wide. You can explore this little corner of paradise on foot, by bike, by scooter, or by car with driver.

On Lembongan Island, beaches, seaweed cultivation and mangroves are on the program. Why deprive yourself of it?

Good to know: Visiting Lembongan Island in 1 day is possible from Sanur during a 3-week tourist tour in Bali.
