You’re loving the resort, the villa, the bungalow… but sometime during your Bali holiday, you’ll crave a brief change of scenery – if only for a day. Susan Elliott shares these Bali day trips.
I call it the Bali Hug. Minutes after arriving at Bali Ngurah Rai International Airport you’re embraced by steamy air fragrant with frangipani, smouldering incense, satay barbecue smoke and the exhaust from half a million motorbikes.
It’s a heady scent that perfumes your entire holiday. You stretch out poolside or bask on a beach lounge, where softly spoken traders with beguiling white smiles will have your suitcase crammed with colourful sarongs before you’ve ordered your first hand-cut pineapple and watermelon juice.
