My name is Palle Bo, and this is The Radio Vagabond… “BALI’S BEST: Top 7 Attractions You Need to Visit.”

1. Ubud Monkey Forest

First up, the Ubud Monkey Forest in the heart of Ubud. Now, this isn’t just any old forest. It’s a nature reserve and Hindu temple complex with hundreds of monkeys roaming free.

Picture this: You’re strolling through a lush jungle, the air thick with the scents of damp earth and wild foliage. The trees are towering, the paths are winding, and the monkeys? They’re the kings here.

Balinese statues and ancient temples peek through the greenery, giving it an Indiana Jones vibe. Just keep your belongings close – these monkeys have sticky fingers and a taste for shiny objects. It’s not just a walk in the park; it’s a walk in a monkey’s kingdom!

2. Visit Tanah Lot Temple

Next, we can’t miss Tanah Lot Temple. This iconic sea temple is sits on a small island in the sea just off the coast near Beraban village. Imagine a temple surrounded by the relentless waves of the Bali sea. As the sun sets, the sky explodes into a palette of fiery oranges and pinks, casting a mystical glow over the temple.

The sound of waves crashing against the rock adds to the drama. You’re not just visiting a temple; you’re witnessing a centuries-old dance between spirituality and nature. It’s a place where you half expect a wise old sage to emerge and offer life-changing advice. A visit here is like stepping into a living postcard, a scene so picturesque you’ll pinch yourself to make sure it’s real.

3. Tegallalang Rice Terraces

Bali is famous for its stunning rice terraces, and Tegallalang near Ubud is the cream of the crop. The green, layered terraces are like nature’s own staircase.

It’s an endless sea of green that cascades down the slopes of the Balinese hills. Here, the rice fields form an intricate pattern, almost like a giant green puzzle spread out under the sky. As you walk along the narrow paths, the terraces offer a rhythmic, undulating landscape that’s both calming and breath-taking.

The air is fresh with the earthy aroma of the fields, and the gentle breeze carries the faint sound of distant village life. Tegallalang isn’t just a feast for the eyes; it’s an immersion into the heart of Bali’s agricultural tradition, a place where time seems to slow down, allowing you to savour every moment of its natural splendour.

Great for a walk, better for your Instagram feed.

4. Seminyak Beach

If you’re a beach person, Seminyak Beach is where it’s at. It’s a stretch of golden sand that’s a haven for sun-lovers and beachcombers.

This beach located on the southwest coast of Bali is a perfect mix of relaxation and vibrancy. It’s lined with trendy cafes and bars, where you can grab a tropical drink and watch the world go by.

In the evenings, Seminyak Beach transforms into a picturesque spot for sunset viewing – as it’s facing west. The sky lights up in brilliant colours, and the beach takes on a magical glow.

A perfect blend of white sand, sun loungers, and some top-notch beach bars.

5. USAT Liberty Shipwreck

In Tulamben, a small village on Bali’s northeast coast, there’s this cool underwater sight called the USAT Liberty Shipwreck. It’s an underwater playground for scuba divers.

This big old ship from World War II is now underwater, really close to the beach. When you go diving there, it’s like entering a whole new world.

The ship is covered in colorful corals and surrounded by all kinds of fish – it’s super lively and just awesome to see. It’s not every day you get to swim around a sunken ship, right? Plus, there’s a bit of mystery to it, which makes the dive even more exciting. Whether you’re a big diving fan or just trying it out, exploring the Liberty Shipwreck is a pretty cool adventure.

6. Uluwatu Temple

Located on a cliff in Pecatu on Bali’s Bukit Peninsula, Uluwatu Temple is not just a spiritual haven, it’s a feast for the eyes. It’s high up, right over the ocean, so the views are amazing. You can hear the waves crashing below – it’s pretty relaxing.

This temple is all about respecting the sea, and it’s been there since the 11th century, so there’s a lot of history.

Every evening, they do this awesome Kecak fire dance. Picture a bunch of dancers and fire, with the sun setting over the ocean in the background. It’s like Bali’s own Broadway show, but with a better backdrop.

Going to Uluwatu Temple is not just about seeing an old building; it’s about feeling something special and getting a bit of that Bali magic.

7. The Bali Swing

Last but not least, the Bali Swing. Ever dreamed of swinging over a jungle? Well, in Bali, you can do just that. Imagine sitting on a giant swing, pushing off, and soaring over lush green trees.

Each swing gives you this thrilling feeling as you look out over the forest. It’s not just fun; it’s also a great way to see Bali’s natural beauty from a whole different angle. So, if you’re up for a bit of adventure and some incredible views, the Bali Swing is definitely worth checking out.

It’s like being a kid again, but with a way cooler view and a higher likelihood of a thrilling Instagram post.

These new Vagabond Shorts doesn’t mean that I’ve stopped doing the regular, in-depth travel episodes with recordings on-location. They’re still rolling out every Tuesday. We’ve just kicked off a new season right here in Bali. Here I got a rare peek into a special Hindu ceremony – a once-in-a-decade kind of thing, and no tourists allowed! It was an extraordinary experience. If you missed that episode, you’ve got to check it out. And stay tuned for another episode from this unique adventure coming up next Travel-Tuesday.
