About 30 minutes from the Ubud village, the Tegenungan waterfalls are one of the easiest to reach locations in Bali. You could park your car right at the entrance, and a staircase of about 100 steps will lead you directly to these beautiful waterfalls. What’s better? You can even swim there, taking in all the beauty and the power of the falls. Don’t fancy the stairs or the swim? Don’t worry. You can still get that amazing view of the falls from the café nearby. This is one of the most waterfalls. But if you are looking for a waterfall that is secluded and not scarcely populated,  Bali has got plenty of options for you. Just ask your driver or your guide, and you’d be there in no time!

2. Mount Batur Sunrise Hike

Mount Batur is one of the most active volcano, and is just as stunning if not more. It is definitely worth paying a visit there and going on a trek. Mount Batur stands at 5600 ft, and guarantees a serene, calming sunrise views in all of Bali and compensates for the trek required to go there. In order to catch the sunrise, you’ll have to start early in the morning around 4AM because the trek takes about 2 tours on an average. If getting up early isn’t your thing, you could catch the sunset there and it is just as beautiful! Though this maybe seem tedious, it is one of the most gratifying things to do in Bali. The sun rising (or setting) over a plateau of clouds will just leave you spellbound and make you want to stay there just a little longer.

3. Kintamani Tour

The village of Kintamani is situated near Mount Batur. Kintamani has a rich bucolic scene set by the farms and mountains around. This village is a must try for families who are looking to escape the urban landscape and relax for a bit. You could go for a boat ride on the lake or cycle through the countryside roads, you can over the top of volcano on a helicopter or go off-roading along the slopes on an ATV. If that doesn’t satisfy you, you can go kayaking across the lake, or lay back in the hot springs in the village. But to get the complete essence of it, be sure to visit their organic farms or the coffee farms to wind up the trip.

4. Nusa Penida Island

If you are looking for a quick day trip from Bali, Nusa Penida Island is a good option to consider. You can take a speed boat to the island, and be back by the end of day. What’s so special about Nusa Penida you ask? Well, Let’s see. You could wander in the Pura Goa Giri Putri cave or roam around taking in the beauty of the Atuh Beach. If you don’t a bit of adrenaline rush, trek along the surrounding hills to Peguyangan falls or Seganing falls or the famous Kelingking cliff ( which when viewed from a distance, resembles a T-rex). You can go snorkelling with Manta rays or just drift in the Angel’s Billabong, a crystal clear water lagoon. Nusa Penida definitely tops the list of must do things in Bali for the variety of activities one could do there.

(There’s a night safari which adds to the thrill!). Teach your kids how friendly animals could be at the Petting Zoo. But if you think that’s all they have to offer, you couldn’t be more mistaken. The park offers live animal shows and the mythical Bali Ayung show by the theatre.

If you are looking for something that’s even more thrilling, something to keep your heart racing, water rafting should definitely be it! Choose between rafting on the Telaga Waja River along the slopes of the majestic Mount Agung. Or, the Ayung river in Ubud. While both these river rafting take you through lush green jungles, they are about 2 hours long. Halfway through the rafting, you can stop to witnessing the beautiful waterfalls ( The Telaga Raft actually lets you drop down a 4 meter fall!). These rafts are considered safe and the rivers are classified as Class 3 Rapid. Both the rafts are accompanied by a sumptuous Indonesian buffet for lunch.
