What to Know Before We Go to Bali
Before we arrive, ensure to know the uniqueles of The Island of Gods. Here, we try to give some information that essential. A small things with tremendous impact for the best getaway such as a wide range of transportation, must-try local cuisine and several tricks to getting the best out of a trip to Bali.
1. Rent A Scooter
Bestowed with the enchanting of nature, Bali is full with mesmerizing place like no other. From lush greenery jungle in the northern, and pristine beach in the southernmost. Nonetheless, it is not easy to find a public transportation in Bali, whether it was limited or many places are unreachable with such a public transportation. That’s why rent a scooter is recommended one and that will be beneficial as we can go anywhere with flexibility. Just keep in mind that Indonesia using left track and bring also international driving license while driving. The price for rent a scooter might be varied and approximately IDR 80 thousand or around US$ 6-7 per day. The price may getting cheaper for weekly and monthly rent. As easy as getting the accommodation, we could rent a scooter in hotel, villa and nearby.
2. Get Local Sim Cards
As soon as we arrived we might feel terrible without phone and internet access. Just stay calm as Indonesia is one of the modest price country for phone and internet services. But, avoid to get the Sim Cards in the airport as it slightly more expensive. On a way to accommodation, try to find authorized Sim Cards center such as Telkomsel, Indosat, XL and 3 for best price and services either on supermarket nor recognized shop.
3. Taste Some Delicious Indonesian Food
Bali has always been known as The Island of Paradise that encompass natural beauty and culinary activity. Here, we can get glorious food, rich of nutrition, which part of the culture in the past and present. Try a Babi Guling, a roasted pig that became one of the most quintessential dining experience for Balinese. In the past, a Babi Guling feast was usually reserved for big rite of passage celebrations such as wedding and funerals. Today, the delicious taste of Babi guling is already spread out and because of mass tourism it is become must-try food while staying in Bali. Another options is Ayam Betutu, a steamed chicken mixed with red chilli peppers, onion slices, coconut oil and anothers condiment. Similar to Baby Guling, we can easily find it in luxury hotels and local restaurants.
4. Get Experience of Floating Breakfast at Private Villa
It is unclear since when floating breakfast has been discovered but this morning routine are keep popping up. Above all, there are some villas that become a trendsetter of floating breakfast that gone viral, such as Ini Vie Villa in Legian. Unlike any other villas, Ini Vie is architecturally designed as romantic villa with all aspects of modern living and facilities. Everything was so nicely presented including the floating breakfast to pampering the visitors. The floating breakfast that consist of bread, local or western cuisine, hot beverage are served on the floating tray.
5. Download Handy Mobile Application
Either of Go-Jek or Uber are imperative mobile application that we must have while staying in Bali. We can order an online transportation, order some meal and stuffs and even a massage services to our room just in one touch. It was handy and so instrumental. Oftentimes we’ll stuck in the traffic congestion in Bali and online transportation were beneficial. All that we need to do just in one click. Order for transportation, wait and sit as the driver take us to the place we want, and no need to worry of lost. These application also complemented with e-money so that we can chain on several mini market and supermarket by only scanning the bar.

1. Kelingking Beach
Kelingking is one of the best beaches in Indonesia. It has breathtaking view like no other so that the reputation of this beach soaring rapidly. If we want to go to this jaw-dropped place, we need to go to the port nearby as this beach located in Nusa Penida Island in the southeastern of Bali and about 45 minutes by fast boat. It has long been known that Nusa Penida has a lot of beach and not too many people around there and Kelingking is one of the most renowned by getting crowded with tourist each day as its stunning location. Kelingking is a cliff with the sandy beach below. Many people are stumbled when they try to get the “perfect shot” on the top of cliff. Queues of people even lining up to get the best picture in the way of the actual pathway and it is worth.
2. Sekumpul waterfall
Sekumpul Waterfall is touted as one of the most beautiful waterfall in Bali. It is located in Sawan, Buleleng Regency, a highland that has so many waterfall and lush jungle. To see Sekumpul Waterfall closely, it takes a bit of effort and struggle. From the parking lot, we have to walk quite far away, down a dirt road and hundreds of stairs followed by across the river. It takes about 30 minutes to walk before finally we’ll hear the roar of waterfall and see the vertical drops of water comes in three ways that showcasing breathtaking view.
3. Luhur Batukaru Temples
Located in Penebel, Tabanan Regency, Luhur Batukaru Temple is one of Bali's key attractions and a site of pilgrimage for Hindu Balinese. The Pura Luhur Batukaru lies in 1,300 meters above the sea level, on the slopes of Mount Batukaru and often misty. All around the Batukaru temple we'll find a garden of flowering frangipani, with a gigantic, inhabited, humid tropical forest all around it. The impressive placed Batukaru is situated since the 11th century, which is an especially sacred site, even by Balinese standards. That's why all visitors have to carefully read and abide the temple rules posted clearly at the entrance.

SANA VIE VILLA, SEMINYAK, BALI by THE WANDERFULLY LOST
During our most recent trip to Bali, Cam and I had the blessing of staying at one of the most beautiful villas in Seminyak: Sana Vie Villa. I had been looking at this place online for so long before the trip and was so happy that we had the opportunity to stay there as it is totally gorgeous, take a look for yourself!
It is located very close to the central area of Seminyak, with countless restaurants, beach bars, boutiques and markets around to keep you busy. We hired a motorbike from the villa for our period of time there and it was just so easy to get around on, even though it was so tempting to spend our time lazing around the pool.
When we arrived at the villa we were presented with a tasty fresh coconut drink while we checked in and settled into our stunning room. I really love that places in Bali add these little extra touches to make your experience more enjoyable!
One of the things that had caught my eye about this villa were the cool floating breakfast trays! Waking up in the morning and having brekkie in the pool to cool off from the warmth of the balinese morning was so heavenly. We had to pay a little extra to have the floating tray each morning but it was SO worth it.

BALI TRAVEL BLOG : SANA VIE VILLA
Whenever I go to Bali I love to mix up my accommodation and spend some time in hotels as well as villas. I’ve talked about it before and I’m still cant decide which type of accom I like more. During this trip I spent a couple of nights staying at the Sana Vie Villa, click the link below to read more about the villa & my stay.
Sana Vie Villa is located in Seminyak, its a little bit of a walk out of the main Seminyak square area so I would recommend making use of the Villa’s shuttle service (or hiring a scooter which you can do from reception). The villa feels like its brand new, and they’ve really put a lot of thought into the facilities and design (there’s even a tv in the toilet). Sana Vie is a massive one bedroom villa, that has a huge bedroom area with two couches with a walk through wardrobe to the bathroom & semi outdoor shower. There is a little kitchen area and deck outside, with the swimming pool in the middle. The hammock located over the pool towards the back of the villa was the perfect little resting spot.
The villa offers a wide range of breakfast options, including the popular “floating breakfasts” which are popping up all over Instagram, I 10/10 recommend you try this option at least once. I had the waffles both mornings because they were so yum! I also stayed in one night and had room service, the chicken pad Thai was delicious!!
Sana Vie Villa also offer some super cute stuff as well as the floating breakfast such as hiring big floaties for your pool or arranging flower baths, candles, champgane & flowers for those planing a romantic proposal (don’t worry I’m still single). I had a cute little flower bath by the pool, which you can see in the photo above

6 Great Apps For Your Bali Trip
Apps to help you in Bali
Here’s a shortlist of great apps to have for your trip to Bali, ranging from those that help you in booking the right Bali hotel that fits your budget and preferences, map apps to help you navigate your way from the beach to a nearby bar or restaurant, to apps that will help you be an instant billionaire (or more accurately, offer you currency exchange rates into rupiah). These apps are available for both Android and iPhone users, from either Google’s Play Store or Apple’s App Store on iTunes, respectively. You can easily and freely install and try them out before your trip, too. For mobile internet in Bali, don’t expect (free) Wi-Fi access with blazing speeds to be present everywhere. It’s a great idea to switch your smartphone’s home SIM card to a prepaid local network provider’s – it’s much cheaper. Reliable providers with widest coverage are Indosat and Telkomsel (with 4G speeds available). Preloaded SIMs with call and data credit values start from IDR 100,000 (USD 8) and are widely sold at the airport, convenience stores and supermarkets. These come in Standard SIM sizes, mostly with convenient pop-out options for both Micro and Nano SIMs as well.
While you can easily browse through our Bali portal for the best selection of hotels in Bali, be it a luxury 5-star resort in Nusa Dua, a budget guesthouse in Ubud or a well-appointed villa in Seminyak, you can browse through the whole Hotels.com inventory of hotels on the dedicated mobile app, available for both Android and iOS. The Hotels.com app is fast and simple, allowing you to plan your next Bali holiday with variety of filtering options. By logging in, you can save your hotel preferences, and even further benefit by getting exclusive deals or rewards. Most importantly, your bookings are secure.
Navigation apps are aplenty, with many preferring Google Maps over any other available. However, Waze is a great community driven alternative which provides turn-by-turn navigation, with great emphasis on real and live routing input by real drivers who can share information on current traffic jams, detours (which are frequent in Bali), and many others. Waze also has social network integration, so you can also send live updates with your ETA to friends, who have already arrived at the beach club, for instance.
This transport and delivery app was started up by Indonesian developers and is widely used, with over 250,000 motorcycle taxi drivers. You can order a motorcycle taxi or conventional taxi ride (GoJek expanded their services by collaborating with Blue Bird, a reputable taxi operator in Indonesia), browse through the great selection of restaurants and businesses with food delivery right to your villa. You can create a shopping checklist for groceries, and even order a spa therapist for your in-villa treatment, too! English language is an available option.
4. Google Translate
Knowing some simple local phrases can get you out of tight situations, such as asking for directions or haggling at the art market. This web-based mobile app simplifies the user experience of the desktop version. Although the translation of long contexts can result in weird sentences most of the time, you can always get your way with the closest approximate Indonesian phrases to score a good bargain for that nice painting or knick-knack that caught your eye.
5. XE Currency
When you need to change your dollars into rupiah, this app can be quite handy in finding out the most current global rates out there. You can convert any currency with XE Currency. The app can store your last updated search, and its conversions can still work if you lose your data signal. You can personalise your settings, set the frequency of live rate updates, and even create alerts so you keep notified as you go. It’s especially good to use to compare what’s being offered at the currency exchange chart. Don’t worry, discrepancies in tens or hundreds of rupiah is still acceptable.
6. MSW Surf Forecast
Many come to Bali for the world class surf… and this mobile app is just great for getting up-to-date info. From Magic Seaweed, one of the most reliable and updated worldwide surf reports, this app provides you with detailed surf forecasts in almost every popular surfing destination around the globe – Bali included. Forecasts include surf ratings, swell sizes, periods and wave heights, wind strength and directions, and temperature. Above all, there’s forecast accuracy in percentages, and you can sneak peek what it’ll be like in up to a week, so you can easily plan ahead before taking your board.
