Bali is one of the most popular destinations in Indonesia. It’s known for its beaches, green volcanic mountains, rice paddy fields, and coral reefs. Before you visit, here are some of the most beautiful and social-media-ready places you’ll want to photograph.
GWK Cultural Park
If you love dance, the GWK Cultural Park is for you. Enjoy traditional dance shows, huge statues and monuments, and a day full of Indonesian cultural events. Make sure to visit the lotus pond and don’t forget to take a picture of the 120-meter-high statue of Garuda Wisnu Kencana.
Kelingking Beach Nusa Peninsula
Get on your hiking shoes and climb up the cliffs at Kelingking Beach for a top-down view of the ocean. You’ll want to be highly-aware of your surroundings, as these cliffs offer very few safety features (like solid fences). But with a T-Rex shaped cliff, how could you NOT climb it?
Ulun Danu Beratan Temple
This temple is just off the shores of Danau Beratan Lake. The water is so still that it looks like a mirror from above. Tourists and locals alike flock here for some stunning pictures of the floating temple.
Tirta Gangga Water Palace
This palace in Bali is full of fountains, wading pools, fish pools, and gardens. Almost every statue and structure here is connected to some form of running water. Everything was designed in a traditional Balinese style, so it’s more than just a pretty picture you’re taking—it’s a cultural snapshot of Bali!
Banyumala Twin Waterfall
Take a break from the hot, humid weather of Bali and go for a dip at the Banyumala Twin Waterfall. You’ll have to hike to get there, but it’s worth it. Given the tropical location of the island, the view isn’t bad on the way, either. You’ll be surrounded by green trees and beautiful landscapes on your journey. Just make sure to bring some bug spray with you!
