Bali has long been considered a destination of choice for digital nomads. With inexpensive living, beautiful scenery, and friendly people, including a thriving expat community, Bali is a great place to make your long-term base. Whether you’re looking for a place to settle for a while, or just want a quick getaway to relax and unwind, Bali is definitely worth a visit! Here are four reasons to visit Bali in 2022:
1 - Bali is a great place to pamper yo’self. You can get a Balinese massage and a facial for less than the price of a facial in the US, and if you’re prepared to try something a little different, throw in an ear candle wax treatment as well! Scrubs, massage, mani/pedis and more, all at a fraction of what you are used to paying. And for something truly spectacular, get yourself a Flower Bath and experience relaxation like never before. Fab-u-luuuuuush.
2 - Priceless moments are on offer every single day in Bali. There is absolutely nothing like waking up at 4am, hiking through the darkness to the summit of a volcano, then watching the sun rise over magical Mt Batur. A once-in-a-lifetime experience, well worth the 2 hour hike to get there, and a moment you will never forget. For those of you looking for a different perspective, take a rafting trip down Ayung River and spend two and a half hours riding rapids, watching waterfalls, and having the time of your life - even when the water is freezing!
3 - Adrenaline and adventures await! The Bali Swing offers an opportunity to get your adrenaline kick as you swing out over the lush forest below, or jump off a 50ft waterfall at Kroya - even if you don’t swim, there are guides who will jump in after you! Don’t worry - if heights aren’t your thing, get your fix using the Grab app (the local version of Uber) to grab yourself a bike taxi. Rules are: there are no rules, so don’t be surprised when you end up weaving through traffic, riding the sidewalk, and speeding past cars that are crawling along. You’ll get to your destination faster than you could imagine, and you’ll be wanting that cocktail once you get there to calm those nerves!
4 - The vibes are chiiillllllll in Bali. Whether you hit the beach, sit outside a cafe, or find a pool somewhere in the forest, there is sun, cocktails, and natural beauty as far as the eye can see. The hospitality is outstanding, the food and drink is incredible, and time just ain’t a thing… at least until you have to head back to the airport for your trip home. If you’re looking for an escape, you can’t go past the paradise you’ll find in Bali.
Bali is one of my favorite destinations for a relaxing self-care filled getaway, but it also offers adventure, adrenaline, and unique nature experiences you have to see to believe. If you think Bali could be your next destination, why not consider a group travel experience? My next Bali experience is in October 2022, and I’d love to have you join me!
