LEGIAN

LEGIAN

In the Kuta/Legian/Seminyak urban complex, Seminyak and Legian are Kuta’s rich northern relatives of the family: A residential and touristic area offering high-end accommodations, trendy spas, upscale shops and renowned restaurants. 

Fast growing development, along with a “so-cool-but-so-chic” crowd, have made Seminyak the central place-to-be for jet-setters, shopaholics and international night owls. Names like Ku De Ta, La Lucciola, Anantara, The Legian, Metisse and more recently Potato Head or the “W” have gained international reputation of must-see and must-be-seen trendy spots. 

The beach in Seminyak is usually less crowded than Kuta, but still packed with vendors trying to sell you watches, sarong, beers or massage (the latter being the best choice). Plenty of spots on the beach to have a drink while enjoying the spectacular sunset, simply sitting on the beach or sipping cocktails at the latest trendy bar while the Dj is spinning chill-out tunes. Another great way to enjoy the sunset is a renting a horse and go for a ride. Seminyak’s real downside is the traffic, especially during high season. 

Unless you really don’t have a choice, don’t bother taking a car around there. Walking or renting a scooter should prevent you from spending a whole afternoon stuck in a car. If you really do need to drive around Kuta and Seminyak, try to use the Jalan Sunset. Wherever you go, it is usually a shorter way. 

Expensive by Balinese standards, Seminyak still offers good value for what you get comparing to similar places in other countries.

 

CANGGU

Canggu is a well-known surfing spot, a quiet place to have a drink for sunset or have dinner facing the sea in one of the small restaurants by the beach.  Grab your scooter for a relaxing ride if you want to leave Seminyak or Kuta without going too far. It has been, in recent years, one fast developing place in Bali (many villas are ...

SANUR

Sanur (meaning “the passion to visit a certain place”) is a family resort famous for its sandy beaches and stunning sunrise.  A little more expansive than Kuta and a little cheaper than Seminyak, Sanur is a perfect place for family with kids, but also for surfers looking for a crowd-free spot.  Sanur may be a place of quietness and ...

UBUD

Located at the very center of Bali, Ubud is famous worldwide for being the cultural and artistic center of the island. Ubud is a quiet village with a refreshingly cooler temperature and atmosphere. Some travelers go to Ubud to escape from the Kuta’s effervescence, some to quench their thirst for art, some for shopping and sightseeing, ...

KUTA

Once a small village, Kuta is the heart of tourism in Bali, with its good sides and, well, maybe not so good ones. Kuta has got all the commodities one can find in any touristic beach resort: Cheap accommodations and more upscale hotels, wide range of restaurants, warungs, souvenirs shop, travel agencies, etc.  Kuta Beach is a good ...

Hash House Harriers

I've heard about the Hash runs before, the group famously known for their tag line of 'drinkers with a running problem' but had never tried a run until coming to Bali. Hash House Harriers or 'hashers' as they are called, have been doing this sort of thing  for decades being a non competitive social running club. ...
