One Week in Bali


If you only have one week vacation in Bali, where would you go? I know that’s not enough time to explore the “Island of the Gods”, but lemme show you how I spent seven days in that remarkable, magical island through this video:

I went to Bali for vacation and cultural exchange through Workaway, I wished that I stayed longer. That one-week Bali itinerary was a great introduction that surely gave me a lasting impression. I’m telling you, Bali is so much more than you think. Some people said that it’s overrated; whoever said that is ignorant, unsophisticated person who obviously haven’t explored the beauty of that island. Well, they can say whatever they wanna say. One thing I know for sure is that Bali has incredible temples, great cuisine, world-class surfing spots, unique culture, and most importantly, it holds a special place in my heart.

  1. Looks like you had a great time in Bali KT. I’ve never been to Bali as its a bit too close to home for me, I always head further into Asia but maybe I should visit one day. Thanks for the ideas.

      Since you’re moving to Thailand next year, might as well visit Bali. They are kinda similar but different. 🙂
