Well, a lot of you must be aware that it is for real and most probably it is one of the important things in your ‘Bucket list’! Bali is where you should be going to tick this off from your list. Though the original and best one is in Ubud, but there are a lot of swings that have sprung up all over Bali, in last few years. An activity filled with freedom, fear, adrenaline rush and thrill of swinging high above the trees and fields, would definitely be an unforgettable experience and ‘forever-to-be-remembered’ pictures! And if you want that ‘Instagram perfect’ picture, below are the places you should be heading when in Bali...
1. Bali Swing
Bali Swing is one of the best and most popular swing in Bali, that is located in Kapubaten Bandun region
It takes 20 minutes drive from Ubud center and 1.5 hours from Kuta. This attraction opens every day from 8 am up to 5 pm. Bali swing houses numerous jungle swings ranging from 10m, 15m, 20m and 78m above ground. A treat for adrenaline junkies, each swing comes with its own unique thrill factor so choose your swing wisely. But regardless of the swing you choose, you will still be guaranteed a pretty spectacular view unlike any other—one that overlooks the river, tropical greenery and waterfall. If you’re not a fan of heights but still want a beautiful photo to take away from the experience, consider one of their many ‘Hanging Nests’ that are scattered around the playground. Wedged between two enormous palm trees, these nest-like structures serve as look-out points but also make for good spots for photos. A ladder is positioned below it allowing guests to climb onto it and is eventually removed to make it seem—in photos—as if you were dangling in midair among the tall trees. Other attractions include the Butterfly Garden, Helicopter, Heart-shaped Rock and Huge Stone—all of which come with a magnificent view overlooking the valley as well as the canyon and waterfall.
