Last Updated

This top 10 list of Bali Travel Blogs is going to help prevent you from looking like a complete noob when you arrive in paradise.

I'm talking about after you get out of the gong show airport and pay for yourt first overpriced cab.

There is lots to learn and one thing is for certain, you'll be taken advantage of if you don't do your homework. Exploring Bali for the first time last year turned out to be everything I had hoped for. From the thick jungles and culture in Ubud to the private pool villas of Seminyak, I honestly loved every minute of it. Having said that Bali comes with a learning curve. 

There is truly something for everyone in Bali. Knowing how and where to find the experience your looking for, will make or break your trip. If you are looking to party, you'll be headed to Kuta. Do you love culture and luxury? Seminyak and Ubud will be on your list. Do you prefer modern resorts, less culture and hanging out with mostly tourists? Nusa Dua will be perfect for you.

All of the Bali Travel Blogs below have been selected for their excellent, detailed advice and tips to help make your adventure perfect.

Hi, I have a question regarding a hypothetical trip to Bali.

My question is the following:

Assuming you have all the time in the world, want to focus mainly on exploring rather than relaxing, and do not mind spending the night in various hotels, resorts, etc as you travel around the island of Bali, what would be the recommendation for the minimum required days to see all the major highlights in all 6 regions of Bali? (without rushing too much)

(6 Regions of Bali referred to below):

North Bali, South Bali, East Bali, West Bali, Central Bali, Southeastern Islands

South Bali (Kuta, Bukit Peninsula, Canggu, Denpasar, Jimbaran, Legian, Nusa Dua, Sanur, Seminyak, Tanah Lot)

Central Bali (Ubud, Bedugul, Tabanan)

West Bali (Negara, Gilimanuk, Medewi Beach, Pemuteran, West Bali National Park)

North Bali (Lovina, Munduk, Singaraja)

East Bali (Amed, Besakih, Candidasa, Kintamani, Klungkung, Mount Agung, Padang Bai, Tirta Gangga)

Southeastern Islands (Nusa Lembongan, Nusa Penida, Nusa Ceningan)

Really hard question to answer Justin, as everyone's idea of travelling, seeing things, and soaking in the culture looks COMPLETELY different. Our first time in Bali we stayed for 3 months and only spent time in 2 of these areas and still didn't feel like we saw it all, because we settled into daily life. I would say generally at least a week in each
