The Hindu Review
Have an Eat, Pray, Love moment in Ubud. Then a waterfall moment in Lovina. A mountain moment in Kintamani. And a Bintang moment in Sanur.
Away from the tourists, Bali's a mighty fine place to explore. Its spiritual side will leave you feeling lifted, like the Lighthouse Family song. Not sure how we just managed to reference an unfashionable 90s pop group into a trip intro, but we did.
Day 1-2 - Ubud
Get to Ubud whenever you like because today’s the official start of your trip. Meet up with your local tour guide and fellow travellers tonight.

On our way to the north coast we'll check out the temples of Taman Ayun and cool off under the Gitgit Waterfalls.

- Drive over the highlands that divide the north coast from the south
Day 5 - Kintamani
