BALI DAY BY DAY ITINERARY SUMMARY
I know most of us are in hurry including me, so I am going to write here on a very high level the summary of Bali Itinerary. However, please go through in detail of each day breakup to understand and plan a better trip.
DAY 1 Arrive at Bali’s Denpasar airport either morning or latest by afternoon. Avoid any flight that arrives airport post noon, you gonna waste your entire day1. After check-in in your hotel in Kutta (hardly 30 mins drive from the airport), go to nice Uluwatu to enjoy the famous Ramanya dance.
DAY 2– Start your day with a good breakfast in your hotel. Head out to Kutta beach which may be like 5 mins walk from your hotel and enjoy the water, sand and the environment. Enjoy your good lunch in the eateries located opposite the beach with a good price.
The evening at Kutta, you can head out to a pub or enjoy a peaceful ambiance with your partner or family sitting beside the beach. The choice is yours
DAY 3- Post your breakfast in the hotel, check out and head out to lesser-known Gilli island, the fact is only 10 % of tourist who arrives in Bali goes to Gilli island. These islands are paradise, no motorbikes allowed and almost clear waters with great coral reefs. Shall we go now?
It takes around 2.5 hrs by speedboat to reach the island. The journey to the island itself is awesome and memorable as you steer towards Gilli. You are going to witness a different atmosphere at Gilli island, so do not miss out.
DAY 4- I would strongly recommend you to spend minimum 2 nights in Gilli, why? the islands where no motorbikes are allowed, go on the bicycle ride, enjoy beachside lunch and dinner, go on scuba dive or snorkeling. You are going to enjoy Gilli, guaranteed!
DAY5- If you plan to stay a night extra in Gilli islands, it would be awesome else pack your bag and sadly ready to leave the paradise by speedboat to Bali. I planned to stay the last stretch of my journey to culture hotspot of Bali called as “Ubud”. You are gonna love Ubud if you are nature, culture and art lover person. I would recommend you to spend minimum 2 nights in Ubud for the best experience.
DAY6- Explore the best of Ubud like natural and exotic waterfall, tropical forest and yes world famous rice terraced field. Eat out in a popular cafe located in the Ubud town. Ubud gives you the best experience.
DAY7- Okay, if you want to plan 6 nights and 7 days Bali Itinerary, it’s time to say goodbye to Bali. After a good breakfast in your hotel, head out to Denpasar airport from Ubud (approx 2 hrs) to catch your afternoon flight.

ARRIVE BALI AIRPORT (DENPASAR)
Very straightforward, just book your best flight directly to Bali without thinking too much. Direct flights are best or if there is 1- 2 hrs layover at places like Malaysia or Singapore, it also works well.
However, I strongly recommend you to please book return flights from your nearest origin city and please book at least 2 months before the actual departing dates to save on money. hey, every single rupee counts unless you are from Ambani’s.
Suggested- Please always get the latest information about Bali airport on local weather, volcanic activity or any natural disaster.
