What to do in Jimbaran, Uluwatu & South Bali

Don’t miss to visit uluwatu temple

Visit the south gate temple on the cliffs of Bali. The temple temple is very important to the Balinese Hindu’s. To the tourists, it is its scenery that impresses rather than the temple itself. At 6pm every night you can watch the Kecak Dance performance during sunset. The performance is arguably a little strange (no offence!), and lasts quite long, but you better make up your own opinion.

Watch out for all those offerings on the floor. Am I risking possession when stepping on an offering?

Tip: Don’t bring any food or accessories (such as sunglasses or ear rings) with you as it seems that wild monkeys own the cliff of Uluwatu temple. Everything that can be snatched, should be stored safely in a bagpack.  Watching the monkeys is fun, but they can also get quite aggressive, therefore keep your distance and keep cool. If you do, so will the monkeys and you have nothing to worry about. Check in our “Health” section what to do when a monkey bites you.

Put on your dancing shoes!

Although the area around Bukit is generally, laid-back and quiet, there are a few spots to party and socialise. Check them out:

  • Singlefin Bali in Uluwatu is open all day for breakfast, lunch and dinner. This spot is very popular due to its location right on the cliffs of the famous Uluwatu surf spot. You have a perfect sunset view there and can watch surfers take a wave. At night time, this place turns into a club with several floors and and open air dancing to DJ sets. Tip: Events are on Wednesday and Sunday night.
  • Padang Padang Beach Party takes place every Saturday night directly on the beach to some chill reggae tunes and live bands.

Selamat Datang!

Selamat datang means Welcome. Wander around, say Hi to the people and enjoy nice talks and learn more about the culture. Meet the locals!

It is almost 100% sure that the locals will randomly start talking to you. Sometimes it is because they are just nice, sometimes they want to sell you something.

Soft selling isn’t their thing. They found their own charming way in trying to sell their services and products to the tourists. “Transport, transport?”, “Massage, massage?” and “Cheap, cheap. Look!” will probably still hunt you down in your dreams.

They say it so many times, as if you didn’t hear them. Well… don’t get aggressive. Remember that these people are just trying to feed their families and keep polite and give a reaction that shows, that you are interested or most of the times: NOT.

Tip: If you are really not interested, don’t let yourself get involved in a conversation, giving the seller hope. It will be hard for you, to get rid of them again and also will give you hard feelings. Stay consequent from the beginning, if you know what or what you don’t want. 5 Tips how to bargain the right way in Bali!
