I was in this very welcoming, beautiful (and cheap) island during wet season. Yes it does rain hard for few hours but at least there's not so many tourists and I managed to see a lot and even road trip for a week on a scooter (so thankful I didn't die). So here's my itinerary !

See the video below for a glimpse of the trip ! Enjoy

Day 1

South - oh boy, flea this area

Late arrival in Denpasar, spent 2 nights in Kuta (Taman Sari Resort $9.40 total, do not recommend this place tho). This city is so noisy and dirty and touristy I was glad to go away. Good to party tho if that's what you're looking for. Not me.

Day 3

Ubud - what to do ?

Day 4

5 nights ($37) in wonderful hostel called Puji Bungalow, in center Ubud very accessible and easy to visit stuff on foot from there. But you'll eventually need transportation. I liked it so much that I came back a bit later in my trip. I mean look at that pool view !

Campuhan Ridge Walk is attended by tourists yes but a lot of locals for their morning run ! (spoiler alert - go early to avoid crowds)

Monkey Forest

Cooking class / Woodcarving class and others...

Eat in small family owned Warung

Ubud Market

Tirta Empul

Goa Gajah

Coffee Plantation and tasting (Satria was good)

Day 8

Rice Terrace

Tegalalang is famous for it's rice terrace, you'll have to pay $1 to get in and then wander through the small paths. Read my instagram post caption to know what I thought of the place..

Stayed in beautiful Bali Jungle Huts, lost in the middle of the jungle ($13/n). Made and his wife are the owners and make you feel at home, all meals are prepared by her, they also propose to take you on a morning trek in the jungle and pick up some local veggies you're missing something if you don't spend at least a night there.

Day 10

Black Sand and Dolphins

That contrast tho !

Lovina Beach is famous for its dolphin watching for like $6 ! Wake up early and grab a little local boat ! All the hotel of the area offer this activity. Stayed at Gede Homestay ($8)

Day 12

Bali Belly, oupsi

I didn't see much of Amed and it's salt production because of obvious not-strong-enough-tourist-stomach haha. Stayed at Pacha hostel ($28), absolut lovely private bungalow, they have a bar area where green local pancakes are served and they host live music by a reggae group tuesday nights.

Day 15

Off to the neighboor island

From Padang Bai you can take a boat for the wild Nusa Penida (Ganga Express, I was the Only tourist in there it's a very route for locals cost me $13 round trip)

yeah full tour of the island on scooter under a burning sun killed my shoulders..
