  • Beautiful Bali, a piece of heaven that’s gaining more and more popularity for being the perfect honeymoon spot. Why? Well, it offers sun, sea, sand and something for everyone whether it is watching the sunrise from the peak of its active volcanoes or watching the sun drown into the ocean. Amazing and safe, two things that will squeeze their way into your heart's checklist of preferable places to go. Let's be honest, when planning a romantic getaway, what do we look for? Affordable rates that will not have you cutting corners, and romantic waves all throughout the Balinese ambiance. You can never go wrong with this destination.

    Bali has also opened its doors to couples hoping to grab more than just memories from their honeymoon.  Honeymoon photo shoots are all the hype, as couples are basking in the beauty of Bali. What did you think we were talking about? Picturesque rugged coastlines to the magnificent mountains to black sandy beaches, the ‘Island of the God’ guarantees you a memorable trip. Often regarded as little Hawaii, but a little less ‘been there, done that’.

    Eat, Pray and get down to Bali with this quick look through of everything that you will need to plan the best honeymoon ever!


  • Best Time To Visit Bali

    Like any prime destinations, there are times of the year when it is bustling with energy and other times when you would be greeted back with the echo of your own voice. The weather here is just like any other typical tropical island with the additional population of more monkeys than humans at most temples, but when this beautiful island gets too hot too quickly, the gods of the sky shower down just enough rain to drench you in rain. And of course, the sweat that follows right after, humidity you see!  

    So, make sure you are traveling with loads of sunscreen to combat those ugly UV Rays and a raincoat (and a windbreaker for those of you that catch a cold far too quickly) to help stop the clouds from drenching you in the rain. And, um those sexy clothes? You know those, the ones right at the back of your closet! Yeah those, don't forget to pack them! We are sure they would not only be very well appreciated but help combat the harsh humidity if you know what we mean.

    While planning a trip down to Bali from India, it is crucial to time it along the various peak seasons of travel if you wish to explore the bustling life of little Hawaii, as most tourists like to call it and take advantage of its mind-boggling discounts on tour packages, but contrary to popular belief, the off-season prices are always more appealing and attractive. 

    Definitely perfect for you and your loved one if you're in the mood to enjoy the privacy of this popular tourist location, off-season traveling is just the thing for you! Let’s split the travel seasons into two vastly different categories, so as to make the most out of the planning for your romantic break in Bali.

  • 01Bali High Season

    Now, this is the time when domestic visitors on school break collide with international tourist on summer or winter holidays and is usually from July to early September every year or even towards the middle of December all the way to early January, this is usually when the prices of anything and everything are expensive. Right from the price of a water bottle ( or Bintang Beer)  to the price of trying out Bali's amazing water sports adventures!

  • 02Bali Low Season

    Right after the end of peak seasons or right before the start of peak season are usually the times when your savings would be the highest and are the times you should most definitely look out for.  This in-between period is a hassle for anyone looking to immerse themselves in the bustling life of the city.


  • 03Exchange Rate

    The prices in Bali will definitely bring out a strut in your walk and a goofy smile on your face. Just like any top tourist destination, you will have to make sure you know the worth of what you are purchasing, and don't let anything go too easy. Do not know how to bargain? This is the perfect place to try out all the tricks of the trade. 

    Bargaining is a must, wherever you go, right from the various tickets you would be purchasing for the beautiful temples to the shopping you do! The current conversion rate is a 100 Indian rupees to 20,712 Indonesian rupiahs which changes reasonably. Do have a look at various currency exchange places before deciding which one is giving you the best rate.

  • Get Your Documents Done

    1501668447_travel_documents.jpg

    There’s obviously going to be a couple of papers that you can not forget about traveling without. But do not worry we’ve compiled a checklist that will have you on your toes about what’s important and what’s not.

    Here’s a list of all the paperwork that you would need on your trip;

    -Passports ( With a minimum of 6 months to expiry, and 2 blank pages)
    -VISA ( Indian Citizens are given an option of opting for VISA on arrival which is $10 USD for 7 days and $25 USD for 30 days. Visa is also available at the Indonesian Embassy in India.)
    -Air travel tickets *Obviously*
    -Travel Insurance: definitely a must have if you are travelling anywhere and everywhere. It will help you sort out all the things that could go wrong while you are travelling. Right from missed-canceled led flights to lost suitcases.  
    -Driving License: if you wish to scooter around with your loved one ( one of the best ways to explore along the thin roads of Bali) Or maybe even go on long drives with your loved one
    -Medical Information: Something you should never forget, just in case of emergencies. Bring along all the necessary prescriptions and doctor’s numbers, so you never fall into a helpless situation.
    -Hotel Information: right from the address to the phone number. You never know when what and how something might be needed.
    -Re-entry permit to India: If you are required to carry any documents for your travel back into India, you would not want to forget that and invite more hassle into your life.

    This is a far cry from typical tourist towns but is the best place to witness and feel one with all the Balinese culture. A few of the temples might allow visitors to observe traditional religious ceremonies and stunning native dance displays, what better way but to bask in all of Bali’s glory! Do make a note of carrying a hoodie or a jacket if you are planning to visit Ubud, it is quite a contrast to the humid coastlines of Bali.
