If your budget doesn’t quite stretch to Bali villas and fancy resorts, then maybe your holiday destination needs to be a little closer to home. When was the last time you ventured out of your house to discover what your own town or city has to offer? Have you noticed the many tourist destinations? Have you gone shopping and discovered the various hot spots and hives of activity? If you’re trapped in the daily nine-to-five grind with no time or inclination to see what your area has to offer, then it might be time to start. Here’s how to be a tourist in your own town.
Try a New Restaurant
Everyone has their favourite restaurant they frequent. Usually, you stick with the same items off the menu and tend to shy away from anything different. Whether there’s a new restaurant in town or one you haven’t tried before, why not make an effort to visit? Grab some friends or loved ones and make a booking. You may discover it becomes your new favourite in no time.
Head to Tourist Hotspots
Every medium-to-large sized town has something to offer tourists. Whether it’s a monument dedicated to a moment in time, a museum, or an experience. If you’ve never taken time out of your day to visit those areas that bring in tourists in their droves, then there’s no time like the present. While your budget might not stretch to Bali villas and long-haul flights, it might be large enough for you to buy passes to local attractions and events.
Your idea of the perfect Bali vacation might be hiding out at a fabulous Bali villa enjoying your own private pool, eating delicious meals prepared by the staff, and just re-energizing and recharging. But if you want to explore a little more what Bali has to offer, you might consider these recommended tours.
Across The Heartland Tour
This is an amazing cultural tour that will take you to Celuk, which is the home of Bali’s silver and gold works industry. You will stop at Batuan where many famous musicians and dancers hang out, and at the stop at Mas, which is Bali’s woodcarving village you’ll be fascinated with the carvings you see. You will also stop at the Royal Temple of Taman Ayun at Mengwi that was built in 17th century. This is a very impressive temple. There’s much more to a Heartland Tour and it’s a great way to spend a day.
In southern Bali large scale, investors are an integral part of the development of this playground for foreign tourists. However, in Perasi a small village in Karangasem Regency in eastern Bali they are actually hoping to avoid the expansion of investments into their pristine Bias Putih Beach.
Bias Putih Beach translates to White Sandy Beach and when it comes to natural wonders this is definitely one of them, and it is beginning to attract tourists from around the world who are looking for a quiet relaxing holiday.
Locals don’t mind sharing their beach with tourists but they want to keep it like it is now – a relaxing getaway without all the tourist ‘pomp and circumstance.’ Because the beach is located behind hills, it’s nearly invisible.
