Most people envision beaches and partying when they think of Bali, but we think a trip with only these components will leave you wanting more — and Bali has so much more to offer. Of course there are beaches and partying, but the sand is actually black in some spots and the partying can be a bit much for the faint of heart. If it’s beach time you seek, bypass Kuta and drive to Seminyak where the sand is mostly white, the water is blue and the shopping and restaurants abound. To really see Bali, make your way over to the hills and rice fields of Ubud. Plan on doing some yoga, hiking or biking along the rice paddies and maybe enjoying some spa time. Eat good food. Spend time with your loved ones. Talk to the locals. You’ll see what Bali is really all about.
