The idea of travelling after a divorce may seem strange to you and many others. In a society like ours, divorce isn’t easy, elders in family from both sides will always try to influence your decision and pressurize you to stay in a relationship which isn’t working. It’s a long fight with lots of blame game, shouting matches & abuses thrown at each other’s that takes its toll on you mentally & physically. You will be feeling sad, exhausted and the need shut yourself to the world.
“A failed relationship is not the end of the world, rather it’s a gateway to explore new possibilities.”
When you are in a non-working marriage, your world starts to shrink, and you may end up feeling trapped. You always match your calendars and plan vacations. Sometimes you would not like to go to a place, but you would travel there for your partner. Sometimes you would want to visit a place, but your partner is unwilling or just too lazy to accompany you.
After divorcing your travel would offer endless possibilities of places you could visit, place you always wanted to visit, things you wanted to do on vacation.
Bali has lots to offer, Idyllic beaches, luxurious accommodation, happening night life, swimming with the fishes and variety of culinary. Bali offers something for everyone. You will find a lot of information on what you should be doing in Bali, when you search the web. I personally prefer to do things which are unusual.
I mean, why do things that everyone is doing?
Snorkeling through the underwater temple garden which has a number of unique Buddha statues that have been submerged. Over the years, these statues have become home to a variety of coral life and fish, making the entire experience even more exciting. While some people opt to dive the area, you can most definitely just snorkel it as well (make sure you get fins!).
I suggest making this part of your itinerary when you visit the islands of Penida and Lembongan as it is easily accessible from land.
How often would you come across an abandoned airplane sitting about 5 mins from Pandwa beach. Well this plane is located on private property so you can’t technically get close to it.
The Balinese are spiritual people, predominantly Hindus, and their houses are furnished with a small temple, at which they pray every day. Temple tours are particularly popular among tourists, not only for the religious value but also for cultural insights and aesthetic pleasure. From majestic sea temples overlooking the ocean to a soul-soothing grand temple complex up on the mountain, Bali’s temples shouldn’t be missed.
The Bali nightlife scene gradually emerges as the sun sets over the western coastline, where Kuta, Seminyak and Legian feature life after dark at its most liveliest. Standalone entertainment venues, Kuta for instance, feature occasional gigs from international bands. In-house hotel bars transform into more dynamic places, some featuring live DJs, bands playing top 40 songs, or simply automated playlists channelled through hi-tech sound systems. In other parts of the island, top Bali nightlife spots offer a combination of impressive locations and winning menus, such as Ku De Ta on the Seminyak coast, or the Rock Bar at Ayana Resort, perched on cliffs above the Indian Ocean.
Spas in Bali have all the necessary components, including the ambience and feel, to offer the most authentic and effective spa treatments, along with a well-qualified team of therapists. This Spa treatment leave such a long-lasting sense of serenity you’d be a fool to miss out.
Enjoy a truly rejuvenating spa experience. You can choose from a range of in-door and out-door spa treatments to relax the mind, body and spirit.
Hopefully, these attractions have given you ideas on things to do in Bali apart from the usual site-seeing that everyone offers.
