If you’re into island getaways filled with vibrant and colorful culture and if you’re the kind of couple who would love to spend their honeymoon chasing waterfalls and sunshine, then Bali is the obvious choice for you if romance and adventure are what you desire.
Bali is known for its incredible views and the budget-friendly prices, the place gives you the experience of a luxurious life minus the insane prices.
Here’s your ultimate guide for a honeymoon in the mesmerizing Bali.
Bali is located in the heart of Indonesia, and the country doesn’t require any visas or permits to travel to so basically all you do is book a flight and a place!
Trust me, avoiding the hassle of the visas saves you lots of time, and is also a stress-reliever.
Best time to visit
Bali mainly has two seasons, rainy and dry seasons. The best time to travel is during the dry season for the warm temperatures minus the humidity and rainfall.
Bali’s peak tourism season is July and August, but if you’re looking to avoid the spike in room rates then book early or travel between April and June.
Currently, the flight ticket to Bali costs between the 11K and 15K. Differs slightly from one airline to another, and you can find cheaper ones of course but we don’t recommend you traveling on a cheap airline. So choose a well-known one such as Emirates or Egyptair, and book as early as you can.
Bali Honeymoon Destinations
There are several destination in Bali, the most popular are Ubud, Kuta and Seminyak. My advice would be for you to divide your days and visit the three destinations, because each of them is unique in a way.
If you stay in Kuta, you will get to enjoy lots of clubbing, shopping, beach clubs and restaurants. While in Ubud, you will get to enjoy the nature and take in the serenity of the quite life.
Even if you’re into the night-life more, there are a must-visits locations in Ubud that are perfect for couples and create for you the dreamy honeymoon you fantasize about.

As for Seminyak, it is known for its top notch restaurants and boutique shopping, basically a more mature version of Kuta but a lot more trendier and hip.
Arriving in Bali
Arriving in Bali by flight means you’ll land in the capital Denpasar and in arriving, you will be greeted with countless of cab drivers and tour guides who most probably will take advantage of you. So my advice is to pre-book a transfer to your hotel, or simply order a Grab car (a must-download app) which is basically an Uber.
Transportation in Bali
As mentioned above, Grab car is certainly the safest option because you will know the exact rate of your trip ahead and there will be no chance of people scamming you.
Another popular mean of transportation is the scooter, you get to rent it and drive around freely. It is much more fun and you will get to have it with you all the time. BUT let me warn you, the roads in Bali are not safe at all. So if you’re not a professional biker, I highly don’t recommend it for your safety.
These are the basics of your trip and a short guide to what to expect in Bali, stay tuned for the ultimate guide of places to visit and where to stay in Bali.
