The Best Location Of Bali To Visit, Part 2

The other parts of Bali that the best to visit besides Kuta/Legian, Sanur or Ubud as below :
Nusa Dua
Nusa Dua is a mass tourism enclave which is about as Balinese as Mc Donalds. The Balinese are actually restricted from entering Nusa Dua including the beaches, which are meant to be public by law.
Most of the hotels are managed by Western hotel groups but owned in part of full by members of the Suharto family via anonymous Jakarta based proxy companies.
Seminyak to Canggu

In this areas, lots of designer (often legal) villas, bespoke luxury resort and lauded retaurants. A bit remote for many given the number of neighbors hardly makes Seminyak a " Balinese get away from it all" any longer.
Where Seminyak adjoins Legian, there is some shopping and other tourist facilities, otherwise an over-developed green zone which has lost its sparkle.
Great beach but highly dangerous waves and rip tides makes walking a pleasure, swimming suicidal.

Tanjung Benoa

On the peninsula up from Nusa Dua, what used to be a fishing village but has now given over to hotels and water sport while still retaining some Balinese authenticity. A long strip of often seriously eroded coastline, due to the fact they stripped the sea of the coral reefs for cement to build hotels only to see the sand wash away a resuld. Not a bad place to come and relax by the beach.

Candidasa is an area of small villages collectively known as Candidasa. Favored by those who want to avoid the excesses of Kuta, the corporate generic nature of Nusa Dua and the hawkers of Sanur & Lovina.
Some Shooping and smattering of restaurants mean guests are not totally beholden to their chosen hotel. Most of the cheap beachfront bungalow operations have now been bought out by group hoteliers, so it has lost its once unique status.


Amed is actually comprised of a number of villages on the Eastern coast of Bali. Once a destination for hippies and backpackers eager for the delights of a thatched bungalow in Bali's hottest (temperature wise) area, now home to a large of often exceptionally goog low to middle price range number of bespoke hotels & villas.
Very little to do besides relax, dive & snorkel, the land here very poor which means there are very few palm trees to shade the ground from the scorching sun.

The Best Location Of Bali To Visit part 1

The most interesting places that have a lot of visitor from local or foreign country in Bali are Kuta & Legian area,Seminyak, Nusa Dua area, Sanur area, Lovina, Ubud, Candidasa & Amed.

As Bali Island well known as an island of the God, Thousand of Temple or Heaven Island and a lot of name given by people in the world who have ever been in Bali. Bali Island is strategically located in the tropical situation and the geographically of this island is consisted of mountain, valley, lake, flat area and beautiful white sandy beach and warms blue seawater.
Bali Island is landscape panorama from the top hill down to the sea.
Know better about some places of interest as below :
Kuta & Legian

Kuta & Legian are busy mass tourism areas generally for the middle budget tourist. As the area is open to the Balinese, there are some notably good restaurand and shops, although much is about being loud while devouring beer & chips.
Several department and retails stores offer a good selection of goods at low prices for those who need their retail therapy, however much is about rip-off fakes Indonesian/Balinese "art".
The golden sand beach is sensational but the waters are mostly very dangerous for anyone who is not a very strong swimmer.

Sanur is generally a middle budget tourism area which straddles a long road lined with shops. restaurants and bars. Less build up and in some ways a little more apmarket than Kuta/Legian but without the range and even quality of places to shop, eat & drink.
The beach generally very poor quality and a haven for persistent "hawkers"(sellers) who absolutely will not leave you alone.
One part of the beach is a haven for young rent girls with their "mama" on offer to wealthy tourists at the so called "prestigious" beach resort.

Ubud Area

Something for everyone including authentic Balines culture and art, but without a beach. Ubud has everything from backpacker homestays to luxury resort, though some of the later are at odds with the local populous. Almost nightly cultural performances and some excellent restaurant, a plethora of art with some actually worthwhile and at good prices.
A few hawkers but generally not so aggressive and no drug/sex seller to speak of.
A generally very laid back & friendly atmosphere, a change to get to know real Balinese

Bali's Weather

It sits 8 degress south of equator & enjoys a year round tropical monsoon climate. There is a slight seasonal variation in temporature and the main season are wet season & dry season.
