Where do I even start with this post? Bali was a literal dream. A magical place on earth that I could return to yearly and next get sick of. A place full of delicious food, friendly people, and gorgeous villa views. I understand why it is on EVERYONE’S travel bucket list so I’m here to share our favorite parts of Bali!
We started our adventure in Canngu for the first four days and stayed at Zoe Villa and then headed inland to Ubud for another four days. Canngu is SUPER hipster/surfer vibe with a ton of foodie spots to eat (listed at the bottom of this post) and great shopping! The streets are full of Aussie’s with long hair and freshly waxed surf boards. In my opinion, Canngu/Seminyak has a similar vibe to Hawaii!
Stunning waterfalls. We spent an entire day chasing waterfalls in Ubud thanks to the recommendation of a friend! We rented a moto and drove to Goa Rang Reng (secluded and stunning), Tegenunjan Waterfall (touristy but huge), Dusun Kuning Waterfall, and Kanto Lampo (pictured above). Wear water shoes and a swim suit if you intended to get in for photos.
James Gang Travel Tips
Rent a scooter! Everyone uses those to get around and its super cheap to do so!
Only use metered taxi’s or be clear on your price! Even apps like uber or grab can’t be trusted. The driver will always try to negotiate more once you secure a car through the app.
Most restaurants will take credit card but keep cash on hand for cabs and local shops.
Where To Stay
You can either stay luxury or on a budget! We found our way in between on the more budget friendly side! There are plenty of cute villas available on Airbnb and I’ve even have a $40 off code for you! Just click here!
If you would prefer to stay in luxury here are a few of the dreamiest:
