Start your day with an amazing trek alongside the cliff of Mount Batur. Though the trek might seem as an onerous task, being with your tribe, listening to your jam as your explore the scenic views alongside makes it all worth it. You’ll have to wake up early (if you’ve slept) in order to catch the sunrise from the top of the mountain. Or you could also plan to reach there by sunset, depending on your travel itinerary. Don’t forget to explore the Kintamani Village at the foot of the hill (you’ll want to fuel your body before or after the trek!)

If you are looking for some insane fun that involves water, adrenaline and a touch of mischief? Then Rafting is your thing. You can raft in Telaga River along the slopes of Mount Agung or in the Ayung River, Ubud. Both these locations are pretty safe and you will also be equipped with safety gear too. The whole raft is about 15kms long each and you get to see some pretty views and also waterfalls. Though I said a touch of mischief, please be sure to take all necessary precautions through out the activity.

3. The One Where They Learn to Cook

What’s better than eating? Cooking. Obviously(at least for a few). But trust me when I tell you attending one of these classes will turn out to be an amazing experience, especially with friends. Imagine the set up where you are learning to cook a dish, and you also get to hear some amazing stories about the Balinese Culture. Moreover, you’ll be learning something new and get to experiment it on your friends. These will all be times to recollect in the future when you and your sit over a table for dinner.

4. The One With The Kecak Fire Dance

Watching a live performance is always better than streaming it virtually. You get to enjoy the emotions and the vibe in realtime. Be sure to catch one of the Kecak Fire dance shows in Bali which is a vivid dance-drama on the Indian Epic, Ramayana. The show in Uluwatu is pretty famous for it’s ocean background during the show. If you are lucky, you can also experience a stunning sunset on the beach with dancers telling you a story of the ages.

Explore the mesmerising underwater locations either by scuba diving or snorkelling. Bali has some good coral reefs to swim by along with ship wrecks and underwater temples. These activities are pretty common across Bali, but Nusa Penida is probably the most famous amongst tourists. If you can’t go to Nusa Penida, you can ask the locals to guide you to a few dive points or ask them for suggestions for activities and they’s be more than happy to help you!

What screams ‘chilling’ other than actually chilling by the beach with gang? Those are the goals any group would want to go for! And Bali is just one of the best places to do so. With so many beaches, each unique in it’s own way, with their own temples and stunning sunrises/sunsets, Bali is the perfect getaway to relax by the soothing waves. Most of the beaches there have activities to keep you occupied, or you could simply relax by the beach sipping on your favourite beverage conversing with your people.

Infinity pools used to be a pretty rare sight a few years ago. Now they’ve become mundane with a lot of tourist destinations making infinity pools a common attraction. If that’s the case, you must be wondering why it is there on this list. Let me tell you. Having an infinity pool is one thing. Having an infinity pool with an insane view is another. Bali has a lot of such options, with the most popular being the one at The Hanging Garden resorts. The feeling of being at the edge of the pool looking over thick green trees is something that’s definitely worth your visit.

One of the most important factors to look out for a vacation, is the cuisine and food availability. This is much more important when you travel with a group of friends. The food scene in Bali is pretty diverse. You can get everything ranging from authentic street food to a proper fine-dining experience. You also have the option to eat at some of your favourite international cuisines, but I suggest you to try out the balinese cuisine as much as possible. Balinese cuisine will never disappoint you and every region in Bali has variations and therefore new dishes to try!

10. The One Where They Explore Nature

If you’ve planned a vacation just to get away from the busy and fast paced life, and you really want to take a step back from stuff, Bali has you covered. The natural beauty of Bali is one of the best there is. Cycle through the calm rice fields of rural Bali or walk up the beautiful mountains. Swim in the Tegenungan waterfalls, or quietly drift in the Angel’s billabong lagoon. If experiencing calm is what you are looking for, Bali has so much to offer that you might even think of extending your stay by a day or two.

11. The One Where They Fly Kites

Not to sound redundant but Bali had the most vibrant nightlife there is. Whether you are looking for raving streets, or live performances or just by relaxed vibe, You can find it all in Bali. There are some very good clubs to hang out at, or you could go by the beach parties to get the Ibiza vibe. Few hotels have candle lit dinner by the beach with live performances. But if there’s one thing that would set Bali’s nightlife apart, that’d be the night market! They are so vivid and lively during the nights, and the products are of great quality and nominally priced!
