From the patchouli-infused spiritual digs of Ubud and Seminyak’s beach clubs to traipsing up a volcano in Mt Batur and island life on Gili Trawangan, see the best bits of Bali by bus, boat, bike and, errr, foot. Cycle through rice paddies, snorkel over reefs, snap a few sunsets, hike some mountains then throw down some beers.

Highlights

Float in the ocean, bake on the beach, and conquer a volcano: the island landscapes of Bali and Gili are epic.

Make like a sponge and soak up every drop of Ubud's relaxed atmosphere. A walk among the bright green rice fields is as Bali as it gets.

There's nothing like waking up at three in the morning to climb a mountain, eh? The active volcano of Mt Batur is worth every minute of sleep you lose.

Swing life away on Gili Trawangan, an island paradise that incorporates the best of both its neighbours with superb snorkelling and a social scene to match.
