A great holiday experience

Personal Perspective | Written By, NOW! BALI |

What makes a great holiday experience? Doing something for the first time, like rafting or diving is certainly a thrill, maybe just seeing your first Balinese dance, or for those who are tired out by the commercial world, a fantastic massage. The great thing about Bali is that you can do them all, maybe even on the same day!  The point is this, coming to Bali should be a great holiday experience and it has all the elements to make it happen, for everyone, not just those in the luxury resorts.

What makes a great holiday experience? Doing something for the first time, like rafting or diving is certainly a thrill, maybe just seeing your first Balinese dance, or for those who are tired out by the commercial world, a fantastic massage. The great thing about Bali is that you can do them all, maybe even on the same day! 

The point is this, coming to Bali should be a great holiday experience and it has all the elements to make it happen, for everyone, not just those in the luxury resorts. But you have to make it happen, and you have to be very selective and disciplined in what you do to make sure you are not disappointed. 

Take eating for example. Bali is now home to some of the best chefs in Asia, and some of the worst! How to tell the difference? Well it can be difficult, but one thing is for sure you will not find a great culinary experience by just walking down the street. This is a recipe for disappointment and even a disrupted holiday due to poor hygiene…!

You need to read, ask and discuss. We feature only recommended restaurants in this magazine and you can find them in the reviews in the directory and online at www.nowbali.co.id. Don’t risk anywhere else!

But the same is true for all the potentially marvellous experiences to be had here, there are good rafting and diving operators and bad, good water parks and not so good, good clubs and very dodgy ones. So take care to choose well. If you do, Bali could provide you with a holiday of a lifetime. I hope yours is, but it’s up to you to research and select. 

But most of all I urge you to go and find the most beautiful areas of Bali, the mountains, quiet beaches, the fields and forests, the tiny villages. This is where the most magical experiences happen.

But please don’t just sit beside the pool for the whole time, that will be pleasant, and easy, but not real Bali, and not the memory of a lifetime.
