If you’re searching for a vacation where a cultural, spiritual awakening and visual beauty would be easily attainable, Bali is the place to go. Here, you would experience incredible sight-seeing, savory cuisine and exotic beauty. The stunning waterfalls, museums and gorgeous mountains are just a few of the must-see’s of Bali.

Gitgit Waterfall

Located in the Gitgit village in the Northern region (near Singaraja) of Bali is the immensely popular, especially for tourists, Gitgit Waterfall. It’s over thirty meters high and is one of the island’s most beloved attractions. This long, scenic, cascading piece of beauty is easy to get to via car or bike (unless you brave the treacherous, but worthwhile hike to the top). Be sure to wear correct footwear, whether you hike or not, since the ground is notorious for being quite slick. The atmosphere is remarkably serene and peaceful, making your deepest connection with nature inevitable. The waterfall is surrounded by vibrant, lush greenery and allows you to explore your rustic side. After you experience the trip to the top, you can enjoy a refreshing dip in the cool, clear water. The Gitgit Waterfall is undoubtedly an essential place to visit when on your Bali holidays.

Gunung Agung

Bali is home to dozens of mountains and therefore, volcanoes. Mount Agung, or Gunung (Indonesian word for mountain) Agung as the locals lovingly refer to it, is the highest stratovolcano in Bali. This mountain features two different routes that allow hikers to indulge their strong desire for both physical activity and picturesque, surreal beauty. Here you can cross an item off the bucket list by climbing or hiking it. Mount Agung is tremendously significant to the locals of Bali, as it is seen as a sacred and spiritual volcano, home to holy Mother Temple of Besakih. From this active volcano, which hasn’t erupted in nearly fifty years, you’d be fortunate if you got to experience the immaculate views of the sunset and sunrise the locals are lucky enough to have seen. Mount Agung offers spiritual enlightenment and physical exercise.

Arma Museum

Bali’s Arma (acronym for Agung Rai Museum of Art) museum’s setting is very tropical and relaxing from the outside, downplaying the incredible artwork featured inside. The layout of the museum is distinctly traditional Balinese architecture. This museum showcases artists from as far back as the 19th century, as well as more recent ones from the 1930’s and 40’s. There is definitely a diverse mix of artistic, innovative styles and time periods. Temporary displays of current photography and artwork are also featured here. Arma museum also doubles as a center for performing arts. The museum is also tourist-friendly, providing a resort among the museum grounds. Visiting the Arma  Museum guarantees that you’ll leave feeling more worldly, educated and cultured.

Bali is an essential spot for travelers around the world, offering extensive cultural, aesthetic and historical experiences. Bali is certainly an exotic location rich in various forms of entertainment (art, history, exploration or physical activities) making it an ideal vacation spot.
