Bali is known for its beaches and culture, but there’s more to see which visitors sometimes miss. Here are the…
Bali is known as the Island of the Gods. Whatever the Island of the Gods would look like, Bali must come close. It’s a tropical paradise, lined with beaches, forests, and some of the most incredible views you’ll ever see. A lot of these things, you’re probably going to have to pay for, yet there is a lot of things to do in Bali for free as well, including Top Bali’s Temples.
Taman Festival is, without a doubt, one of the most interesting Bali for free attractions there is. It’s not just the fact that this has been dubbed ‘Bali’s Ghost Town’, nor the fact that there is a smorgasbord of ghost tales surrounding this abandoned theme park, it’s also the fact that this is a truly ‘off the beaten’ path destination. The area was once scheduled to become a theme park – one of the largest in Bali – when a series of unfortunate events and poor planning led to the site being abandoned. What was left behind has now been reclaimed by the Balinese wilds. This means that it’s perfect for experiencing something a little alternative.
Pinggan Village is situation next to Mount Batur. Mount Batur, of course, is very well known. Many hikers and trekkers make their way here every year to scale the mountain and take in the incredible views. In fact, according to statistics, Mount Batur is one of the most visited attractions in Bali. However, doing Bali for free doesn’t just mean doing the same attractions everyone else does. That’s why we’re suggesting Pinggan Village.
Located in Pura Beji Guwang, Sukawati Canyon is a true artist’s paradise. Stepping into this canyon, you’ll find yourself surrounded by unbelievable combinations and patterns of colors. The natural rock formations jut out in seemingly random, but incredibly beautiful, directions. It’s as though you have landed on an oil painter’s canvas as he is working.
Between the two canyon walls, you’ll find clear and clean water flowing. This is part of the river Beji, which continues out of the canyon. If you’re looking for creative inspiration in Bali for free, then Sukawati Canyon might just be it.
Undoubtedly one of Bali’s most popular walks. Campuhan Ridge is one of the best ways to experience hiking in Bali for free. You’ll find yourself walking through cool, green fields, the breeze whipping past your face. From the highlands of the ridge, you’ll have an incredible view of the world beneath you and be able to take some pretty darn good pictures. The walk itself is 9 km. You’ll see Balinese temples, rice field and terraces, and the jungle scenery which surrounds you.
Starting the Campuhan Ridge Walk is easy. Head to the Ubud Traditional Markets in Ubud. The corner you’re looking for is Jl. Monkey Forest and Jl. Raya Ubud. Once you’re there, head towards the bridge. You’ll see the entrance to a villa and spa called Ibah, turn into the driveway and you’ll then notice another fork. Take the left path and continue down it. You’ll start seeing signs which say “going to the hill”. Follow these and you’ll make it.
Did you know that only 1 for every 1,000-10,000 turtles born, survive to be adults? Conservation efforts have taken place around the whole world, but now you’ll be able to get in on it yourself. You probably didn’t think you would be able to gain admission to seeing baby turtles being born in Bali for free, but here you are. Depending on the time of year you decide to visit, you can be a part of it.
