The world has a lot to offer, and every given country is unique in its own way. Well, due to many factors, it can be difficult visiting all the countries in the world, but if you can, why not?

With that said, here are some of the fun things to do in Bali;
1. Visit the beaches
A vacation to Bali can never be complete without visiting the beaches. Bali is the hub of many beaches including Kuta beach (one of the famous ones), Uluwatu beach, Padang beach, Kelingking beach and many others. There are quite a number of beach activities you can enjoy, such as playing beach soccer, volleyball, swimming, snorkeling and of course surfing. In fact, did you know that Bali is known as a paradise for surfers? If you are a professional surfer or even a beginner, be sure to have the time of your life surfing through the gentle Kuta beach waves.
2. Visit the temples
Bali is also known as the temple of Gods, and this is because it has many temples. One of the most articulately designed temples is the Tanah Lot Temple which is built on top of the rocks. While on this temple, you can enjoy watching the sunrise or even the sunset. Besides visiting Tanah Lot Temple, you can also visit Besakih temple, Ulun Danu Temple, Uluwatu temple and many others.
3. Go to the Bali swings
You probably have been seeing some beautiful photos of people on the high swings and have been wondering where it is. Well, Bali is the home of that breathtaking spot which is found in Ubud at the Zen Hideaway retreat. And that is not all; there are also other swings in Bali, some of which are up to 78m high. So if you are an adrenaline junkie, you cannot afford not to visit the swings and take the photos to up your Instagram game.
4. Go for yoga
There is nothing that beats doing yoga at a spot with breathtaking views and fresh air, and that’s why you need to visit the yoga spots in Bali. The yoga retreats, especially in Ubud, are to die for. And the good thing is that there are other activities that you can also engage in while in these retreats. For instance, get a massage at the spas, get your hair done in the executive salons, take a swim in the pools, and so on.
5. Practice Tri Hita Karana
If harmony means happiness, then this philosophy of life from Bali will help you achieve it. In English, Tri Hita Karana means “three reasons for well-being” – being in harmony with people, in harmony with God and in harmony with nature.
