HELP! Where should we go??

Posted by Craigor on 13/12/2013 at 08:25


We will be ending our trip in Indonesia (honeymoon for my wife and I). Should be there for about 8 days in the beginning of March. Where should we go??

We want somewhere with lots of good food, great snorkelling and swimming and a laid back feel. I need somewhere to just relax and enjoy the end of my trip. Somewhere that has lots of little local places to eat and things to do would be great. We don’t want something so busy and commercialized though, no Starbucks and McDonalds. Sunny skies and blue seas is all we need.

Thanks for the help :-)

Consider the north of Bali.
Ahmed, Lovina, a car for a few days.
Easy to get in and out of via Denpasar.

Agree with Tyler.

With eight days you could do something like (this isn't a budget loop...):
Arrive -> hire car (with/without driver) head to Candi Dasa overnight. Next day Bali Asli cooking school then Amed. 2-3 days Amed, then driver over the north coast to Kali Manik (a little west of Lovina - eat a LOT) two nights there, then drive to Munduk for a night then back to South Bali for exit.

Above is an unusual route, but a pretty good one.

My first thought was Amed in Bali. Just go there for the week! Or maybe half a week there and half a week in the mountains around Munduk.
