Bali on a Shoestring

The magical reputation of Bali doesnt have to be held up by incredible water temples or surfing opportunities alone this chill paradise also has plenty of inland and cultural highlights that will draw you in. This 9-day itinerary will let you explore rice paddies, bar hop along the beach, and immerse yourself in local culture at a traditional guesthouse. But hey, you cant leave without paddling out on those stunning waters or gazing up at a temple, so weve left time for you to do those too.
