Bali – 4N/5D trip itinerary

Planning a trip there was quite a experience as I’ve already detailed here. But after much research, we finally had a plan for Bali and I want to share the detailed itinerary so you don’t have to go through the drill. We were traveling on budget – not the usual honeymoon splurge – so using the services of an agent was not going to help. I still checked with a couple and on hearing my budget (more on this here), they said I should look at another place as the airfares itself very quite expensive for Bali. But I was determined to work something out.

Day 1:Water sports

  • Marine sport activities at Tanjung Benoa

Note that this is the actual itinerary with some places skipped and others we just drove by: here is a page on our Bali experience. You can also squeeze this into 4 days, by covering South Bali post water sports. I’ve written a post on our Bali experience and another post around the airlines, transit airport, hotels we stayed and the budget here. If I can be any help in customizing this further, feel free to write to me.
