Ubud is the perfect place to relax in the countryside, explore beautiful temples, eat great food and go for walks in stunningly picturesque rice fields, while Canggu is an awesome destination for surfers and beach lovers. Bali has something for everyone and despite running around trying to fit in as much as possible there’s lots that we missed!
For once in our travels we decided to slow it down when we reached Indonesia. We were considering cramming in many more islands than we eventually managed, but I for one am glad we decided to minimise our itinerary. There is so much to see in Indonesia that you’d need a lifetime or at least many months to explore it anywhere near properly, but really who has that amount of time on their hands!
As I write this we’re sitting in a little cafe in Labuan Bajo, it’s less than 24 hours since we finished our Komodo Island trip and we still can’t believe how incredible our time here has been. In the last three days we’ve trekked on remote islands in pursuit of Komodo dragons, snorkelled with giant Manta Rays and have just generally had three of the most perfect days of our travels so far.
