there are constant reports of injuries and even deaths from careless and unprofession apractices involving high speed boats, jet skis, and flying things. Of course not all the operators are bad but it still keeps the area far from the top of the list. It certainly is the Lonely Planet Top Picks which includ Taman Kertha
What are the best trips to do in Bali? Well you have to be very careful with your sources of information on these! It certainly is not Trip Advisor’s,No 1 Choice: Marine Sports at Tanjung Benoa, where there are constant reports of injuries and even deaths from careless and unprofessional practices involving high speed boats, jet skis, and flying things. Of course not all the operators are bad but it still keeps the area far from the top of the list. It certainly is the Lonely Planet Top Picks which includ Taman Kertha
Gosa, Gunung Kawi, Museum Le Mayeur, Puri Agung Karangasem, and Bumbu Bali Restaurant, among others. And it is the bali Indonesia.com list which starts with Besakih Temple,Tanah Lot Temple, Uluwatu Temple and Tegalalang Rice Terraces, and goes to a real Bali-oriente selection.
I also really liked the gadling.com list which includes bicycling around Ubud, learning to surf in Kuta, seeing the Kecak Dance at Uluwatu and snorkeling at Menjangan Island. Fun , natural and really Bali.
So the lists of recommendations are getting better and more focused on real Balinese experiences. Thank goodness! About a year ago, Trip Advisor’s Top 100 list only had two recommendations that were Balinese cultural/natural attractions, the rest were trips you could do anywhere in the world including camel riding, glass bottomed boats, fishing and the zoo. But be very careful, there are many unscrupulous operators who will say anything to get your money, and with your limited time on the island you really want to see and do the best . Get good advice from your hotel, especially the Balinese staff. They know their island! This is Bali. Enjoy everything Balinese.
