The best time to visit the rice terraces are sunrise.

If you're not a morning person it will be a bit hard! But if you really want to get the most out of your visit, early morning is the best.

Make sure bring some water to drink while you're hiking the ricefields, because it can get really hot during the day.


Ubud, Waterfalls.

Known as the Island of Gods, Bali’s waterfalls won’t disappoint. Bond is located in the area of Ubud, where most of them can be found. Swim at the bottom and feel the power of nature flowing through you!

Most of the waterfalls are reachable with the car and a short hike, but the most hidden ones are definitely not that easily approachable. Prepare for a long hike, with enough water to stay hydrated and a lot of sunscreen!

Extra tip: Ofcourse you can wear sandals for the hike to the waterfall, but to be more steady and safe we recommend you wear shoes (and the sandals in your backpack)

Ubud, Temples.

Most people come to Bali to recharge and regrow. ​ Whatever your beliefs, you will be enchanted by Balinese ancient traditions and temples.

Cleanse old energy through a water ceremony, or simply respect others praying to their Gods. If you visit the temple in the monkey forest of Ubud, beware of your belongings. The monkeys might look sweet, but they can be very devious!
