    Bali is more than just an island beach party destination 

    Off the beaten path in Bali, you can find hidden villages, ancient temples, beautiful seascapes, and other culturally interesting places. To get a good look at things, you need peace and quiet. Most tourists rent scooters to get around Bali, but you can also rent a car with a driver. A botanical garden, a hot spring, and some rice paddies. Take part in a mountain-biking or hiking excursion or ascend the summit of a volcano. The good news is that Bali is relatively small, and despite the fact that roads are narrow and traffic can be a bit crazy at times, you can easily explore many of Bali’s wonders within 10-12 hours.

    Bali: A Family Vacation Paradise

    Beautiful world-class animal parks, amusement parks, and Activities for Families and Children can be found all over the island. Children are seen and treated as little kings and queens in Balinese culture, and your children will be welcomed with an open heart and friendly smiles. Exposing children to Bali’s diverse cultures helps them make sense of the world, adapt to new circumstances, overcome prejudice, and teach tolerance. If you are on vacation or a resident looking for activities for your children, you can be sure that there will be something exciting for them. However, infants and toddlers, like in any tropical region, have a tougher difficulty adjusting to the heat and humidity. We recommend that they dress modestly by wearing loose, light-colored clothes and a broad-brimmed hat. This will protect their skin from UV radiation and insect bites. They should be given water often, in tiny quantities.

    More on Traveling with Children

    “Empty your mind. Be shapeless, formless — like water.”

    Bali is a watersports and activity mecca. Surfing, Scuba Diving, Snorkeling, Yachts and Boat Rental, Jet Skis, Whitewater Rafting, Banana Boats, Canoeing, Stand-Up Paddling, Glass Bottom Boats, the list goes on and on. Prices are reasonable, and providers are safety and service-oriented.

    Workshops, Courses, and Seminars

    It is never too late to learn something new, develop new or deepen skills, or discover new interests. Almost any topic can be covered in a workshop or seminar on Bali. Cooking classes and yoga classes are, of course, at the top of the list. You can train for fun or attend train-the-trainer classes to earn diplomas and certificates.
    Body, mind, and soul topics like tarot reading, astrology, and nutrition are regularly taught near Ubud. At the same time, many hotels and fine restaurants throughout the island offer Balinese cooking classes.
