How is the Nightlife in Bali?
Bali has long been a centre for clubbing and heading out for the night. Nearly five decades ago, the island was a popular stop for surfers and hippies, and its laid-back and tolerant culture has allowed it’s party scene to thrive over the years. Also, its relative proximity to Japan, Australia, Singapore and the continuous stream of tourists from those countries transformed Bali into a world-class destination for clubbing and partying.
Bali doesn’t enforce opening and closing times for bars, clubs, and discos allowing them to stay open longer, with the music sometimes still playing at sunrise. Although the real parties and action happen past midnight, going out might start early, with happy hours available in many restaurants, bars, and clubs, and sunset drinks are a daily pastime, whether in a luxurious beachside lounge in Seminyak or on a bench by the waves in Kuta.
The Best Bars and Clubs in Bali
1. Old Man’s
You can’t come to Canggu without trying an Old Man’s Wednesday night event. These parties have an almost legendary status on the island, and involve a happy hour, beer pong, and dancing to old school tunes! Expect to bump into lots of people you know and expect to get sweaty!
2. Pretty Poison
Pretty Poison is a hotspot in Canggu which is a combination of a bar and skater park. Yup, in the centre of the venue is a retro, ’80s era skate bowl, making this bar have a backyard kind of vibe. If you don’t ride skateboards, don’t worry – you can still sit and watch others do it, along with the vast crowds of people sipping a Bintang right from the bowl. Also, they host epic DJs and fresh live music, so it’s perfect for letting loose!
3. La Favela
La Favela is another cool Seminyak must-visit if you want to have a night out! This bar and restaurant [situated in the centre of the bustling town] look like a long-forgotten colonial building in the middle of the jungle, with vintage design and vegetation everywhere. During the day, it is a restaurant, but when night falls, it turns into a club. It closely resembles your mate’s house party, which is very cool! Check their website for what’s cooking, as every weekend has a different event. La Favela is one of those places where you enter in the afternoon and come out the next morning!
4. Single Fin
Single Fin is not just famous for its breathtaking ocean views; it also has one of the best Sunday events on the island. Get yourself comfortable one of the booths [which can be booked via their website] and arrive there just in time to catch a glimpse of the sunset. Soon enough, the venue will be filled to the brim with people, and as the music from top international DJs is blasted through the speakers, you will find yourself grooving to club and house classics until the early hours of the next morning!
5. The Orchard Bar & Restaurant
If you love nothing more than a boogie to live music, the Orchard Bar & Restaurant is your new live music haunt, providing you with the chance to see some of Indonesia’s best music acts! They also have a two-for-one happy hour most nights, which is a bonus!
Bali, the famous “Island of the Gods”, stakes a substantial claim to be hailed as paradise on earth. Its varied landscape of rugged coastlines, mountainous terrain, sandy beaches, barren volcanic slopes, and lush rice terraces provide a scenic backdrop to its unique, colourful, and spiritual culture. Also, the cultural landscape of the island has been recognized and included on the UNESCO World Heritage list.
With its world-class diving and surfing spots, a wide range of cultural, natural, historical attractions, and several options for accommodation, it is one of the most visited island destinations throughout the world. Bali also offers something to almost every tourist from the backpacking young adults to the ultra-wealthy middle-aged people. Also, its Hindu population stands in contrast to the rest of the country.
High season is during July and August, during Easter Holidays, and Christmas / New Year (December till 1st week of January). It is time Bali is the busiest. However, for a lot of reasons, the best time to head to Bali is from April to June and September, just before and just after high season. Plus, aside from Bali, you can also explore nearby tourist spots in Hanoi and Bangkok.
Crime. Although Bali is a beautiful and popular holiday destination, petty crime is common, and corruption and scams do occur. We recommend a few straightforward measures to help keep yourself safe. There have been cases of bag snatching so remember to keep your valuables out of sight, close to you and zipped up.
For a seven-day trip to Bali, you can assume a total cost of US$500-600 per person for local transport, food & drink, and activities. That’s mostly the amount of cash you need to carry.
Bali is the friendlier option for solo travellers because it is more economical and travel-friendly. Transportation between various locations are more accessible, and accommodation for solo tourists is much cheaper. The Maldives offers more in terms of adventures and going to different islands, but it is more expensive.
Planning a honeymoon is very personal, so every couple will have there must do’s and will be no equal as any other. A honeymoon scheduled through a travel agency can cost you from 5000 euros for 8/10 days in Bali to limitless amounts of money, and if you want it to tailor-made, the prices go up.
