why travel solo to bali?
Laid-back island living at its finest - Bali is a bohemian wonderland where surf, sun, yoga and underwater worlds are all within reach.
Bali is a lush, spiritual destination home to dramatic volcanic landscapes, rugged coastlines and beautiful temples. The island’s cultural heart can be found in Ubud, where the iconic rice paddies colour the landscapes and the practice of yoga thrives, whilst further inland you’ll also discover Mount Batur. Travel with Flash Pack on our Bali tour and you’ll ascend this sacred volcano at sunrise and toast to your achievement with a prosecco breakfast.
And we can’t go without mentioning Gili Air, where clear blue skies melt seamlessly into crystalline blue waters and perfect white sands are framed by palms. Yet, it’s what exists below the surface here that’ll really leave you awe-struck. Coral reefs, turtles, colourful fish…When the underwater world is as vibrant as the one on land, you know you’re somewhere special.

Top places to visit in Bali
Legian beach stretches between two of Bali’s most popular beaches, Kuta and Seminyak, but it actually means you get the surfing opportunities of Kuta and nightlife of Seminyak without having to share the beach with as many people. The area is full of activity opportunities, from water parks and surfing to art markets and galleries.
Jatiluwih Rice Terraces
These beautiful, undulating rice terraces are stepped across an entire mountain. Spend an afternoon wandering through the terraces of these shimmering rice fields while you learn about traditional Balinese irrigation methods and what makes them completely unique to this island.
Ubud is a town filled with spirituality and imbued with traditional Balinese culture. This town in the uplands of Bali is also known as a hub for traditional crafts and dance, where you’ll find the streets adorned with colourful creations, but you’ll also find it’s a town of sustainable design, mindfulness and culinary inventiveness.
This beautiful beach resort is located on the edge of a picturesque freshwater lagoon, named Candi Dasa Lagoon. It’s a beach resort full of hotels with infinity pools and beautiful sandy beaches. If you visit in June, you’ll have the opportunity to see the Mekare-kare festival.
