Idyllic beaches, stunning villages, gorgeous rice fields, exotic sunset views, amazing nightlife, laid-back culture, breathtaking natural vista, and great food, everything makes the island a packed journey. Since Bali is covered with tourists all year round; here are a few things no one will tell about the place.
If you want to know the 5 things that will make the whole travel experience indelible and unique, read the post till the end.
Bali Is An Occupied Place
Bali is a beautiful island but if you’re looking for a secluded island vacation, Bali is not the right choice. The island is jam-packed with travelers and locals; it seems everyone traveling to Indonesia is on the island.
Looking at the pictures you might think the island is full of peaceful and serene spots but it’s nothing of that sort. There is no such peak travel season in the region as the island is jam-packed all year round. The area around Seminyak is the most crowded area on the island. The market and streets and are so busy that most of the time you won’t find a proper way to stroll.
It’s clearly understood the more the place is jam-packed with locals and tourists, the more the awful traffic you’ll experience. You won’t believe how much congested the roads become especially during nights. If you love overwhelmed places we don’t think Bali’s traffic and occupied spots will be a problem for you.
Tip- the driving in the region is crazy so make sure if you’re driving yourself you’re aware of the other drivers and your surroundings all the time.
Not As Clean As Shown In Pictures
Pictures of Bali on the internet might compel you to travel to the place ASAP. The clean and pristine beaches, lush greenery, gorgeous rice fields no one is to blame that it tempts everyone but mind you, it’s not as clean as shown in the pictures. There are a few spots where you’ll find garbage piles near beaches and on the streets.
So, if you’re going to the island thinking it to be exactly as shown in the pictures you might turn out to be a bit disappointed. So, it’s better you should be prepared before going.
Bali is Quite A Big Island
If you’re thinking Bali to be a tiny island you are absolutely wrong. Bali is a big island and filled with different experiences depending on where you travel. If you’re traveling to the beaches you’ll experience something different when compared to visiting the countryside.
There is so much to do and see in the country that you might feel as if you’re visiting a separate place than visiting a part of Indonesia. We would suggest you plan a vacay of at least a week to explore the best of the island.
The Monkeys Are Not Cute
If anyone told you the monkeys in Bali are super cute, you’ve been told wrong. It’s very common to spot monkeys in Bali and we suggest you be very careful while these evil monkeys are around you. They can snatch whatever you have, so make sure you’re careful of what you’re holding in your hands. Keep your bags locked up every time.
So, these are a few things that you must know before traveling to Bali. We hope the feed helps you and the information proves to help plan a perfect vacay.
