After my most recent trip to Bali, you could say I’m expert in world travel. When your body is put into 3 different time zones over the course of 2 weeks, it can be difficult to say the least, adjusting in new territories. What I picked up along the way was how to stay sane, fight jet lag, and more specifically to this blog, curated the healthiest things you can do in Bali!
Along with a few activities, I’ll include links to all the places I stayed & a few fun extras at the end about the Wedding I was a part of (aka why I traveled to Bali in the first place).
To get things started… For me personally, I NEED TO WORKOUT. Not for aesthetics, but to stay a sane human. It’s true what they say, working out releases endorphins and endorphins make you happy! That being said, not every workout needs to be a ball to the wall sweat session. Rather, after sitting on a plane or in a car for X amount of hours, a walk is all you need to shake out your body & get the GI regular again.
God knows that being backed up (sorry not sorry) is the LAST thing anyone wants while on vacation. Dehydration, foreign eating habits, and irregular foods can all play a part in making you, well, irregular.
Amongst staying as hydrated as possible before, during, and after your plane ride. There are plenty of activities for you to do in the beautiful country of Indonesia!
On the main Island:
- Sekumpul Waterfalls
- Twin Lake Hike
- Mt Batur (second highest peak on the island!)
- Temple Tour
- West Bali National Park
- Campuhan Ridge Walk
- Mt. Rinjani Hike (on the island of Lombok)
Tirtagangga Rice Paddies
We all know that activities are great and help enhance any travel experience, but something I personally love is seeing a new culture with their food. New flavors, ways to eat, and in general how different places run a restaurant is fascinating to me. Here’s a few places I personally tried and loved, plus, ones that were on my list but we didn’t get a chance to stop at.
- BREEZE cafe
- Unique Rooftop Bar & Restaurant
- Nalu Bowls Bukit
- OMNIA Dayclub Bali
- Above Eleven
- Secret Penida Cafe
- Kynd Community Cafe
- Betelnut Cafe
All in all, it was a pretty incredible trip & I’m always thankful for the opportunity to travel.
