Posted by sammargherita on 17/4/2011 at 08:48

Hi! I'm going to Bali at the end of May. I'm gonna go surfing at Padang Padang surf camp. Can anyone tell me what else to see around in that area? Like go to Ubud and Seminyak, perhaps? I'm staying in Padang Padang for 3 days and then Gili Trawangan for 7 days then go back to Kuta again.
my plan is eat, surf and see the culture stuff. temples etc.
Please help me with itinerary. Thanks!!!!

It all depends on how much surfing you do at Padang Padang. If you surf every day, that means you won't really have time to visit Ubud or anywhere north of Kuta /Legian/ Seminyak . The best temple close to Padang Padang is Uluwatu which is a 10min drive away. You can go there at sunset for a spectacular kecak performance - you should do this. Other than that, you could go into Seminyak for some eating and drinking or Kuta if that is more to your taste.

Other than that, there really isn't a lot else you can do around Padang Padang. It's really just a place to hang around the beach.

If you don't surf every day, a daytrip to Ubud is worthwhile and easy to do on your own with a car/bike or a car/bike & driver.
