Bali: A Tropical Paradise

Visit and explore the Indonesian Archipelago, Bali for a 6 day 6 night exploration of this tropical paradise. 

Soft white sand will caress your feet as you stand gazing at a beautiful sunrise and sunset. Limestone cliffs, hidden waterfalls, tropical rainforests, and a culture that will envelop you with the true magic of the Balinese history. 

 Expand your horizons with the spirituality of the Balinese, bask yourselves in the shadows of epic temples with history intertwined in every stone, and be enthralled with the magical colors of everchanging seascapes. 

Join us on this epic adventure of Bali, Indonesia.  

Trip Summary ** this is a teaser itinerary 

 

Over the course of 6 days we will be traversing through 3 key locations in Bali: Kuta, Ubud, and the island of Nusa Penida. 

 

Starting off in Kuta we will get to experience city culture at its finest with artistic vibes throughout the city, dancers, craftspeople and more.  One night we will explore the magic of a Kecak fire dance show. 

We will spend up to two days exploring the amazing city of Ubud.  Ubud is the spiritual city seen in the movie Eat, Pray, Love. Experience the magic of Sacred Monkey Forest of Padangtegal, one of Ubud’s most sacred places; a natural forest sanctuary that is home to around 400 grey long- tailed macaques.  We will feast our eyes upon the layers of wonder of the Tegalalang Rice Terraces and the coffee planatations.  Later on we will visit the famous Tirta Empul Water Temple and tramp through the jungle to explore the magical hidden waterfalls of Bali.

Getting there

  • I offer discounted group airline travel out of Washington D.C as long as there is a minimum of 10 travelers participate.  This is included in the package price if you choose this option. I will make all the arrangements. You will be required to make your own travel arrangements to and from the DC airport.   All airlines will be well known or ones I have personally flown on. Seats will be chosen after ticket is issues which is usually 60 days prior to trip.  Group seats are all coach with options to upgrade at your own expense after tickets are issues.   Group airline requires a $200 non- refundable deposit to secure your ticket which is due 60 days after initial deposit date. There will be a payment schedule of when certain payments are due.  Once all group tickets are paid for, they are all issued to each individual traveler.

  • Typical group savings have airfares with bags included and up to a 30% savings over individual travel. We do need 10 people to participate in group travel in order to secure the rates.  If we do not have 10 people airline tickets are booked by the individual traveller and pricing is variable dependent on airline travel costs. 

 

  • If you book your own airline ticket you will need to ensure you are in Bali for pick up with the group by 9am on June 24, 2020. 

 

  • If you are not able to get to Washington DC for air travel, I will be more than happy to search airline fare close to our group rates, get you to the destination and meet up with the group
