Going to Bali and I need ideas!

Myself and 2 of my girlfriends are going to Bali for 8 nights. We want to stay in Ubud, but not sure where to stay. We also are thinking about staying in another town for 3 days. We dont want to do the craziness of Kuta. we want more culture, sightseeing, adventure, etc. It would be nice to see a beautiful beach but only for a day... where should we go? should we visit another close island, or just travel Bali? North Bali? We need suggestions!

Try Amed, which is close enough for day trips to most tourist objects, but also more like traditional Bali. The beaches at Amed are working beaches (expect fishermen's boats and local activities etc) but still good to watch the world go by.

What do you want to pay for a hotel erin?

In Ubud you can stay in beautiful budget places from $25.00 to mid range from $80.00 and upper end, from $200.00. From Ubud you can also have some great adventure.

I agree with divewench about spending 3 days Amed, it is just lovely and as far removed from the hustle and bustle of Kuta as you could want.

Any thoughts on going to lombok for a few days? Gili Islands? or Java?

i think you could consider Munduk for at least 2 days and maybe 3.

this place is extraordinary: http://www.mundukmodingplantation.com/

look at its listing on tripadvisor.

you cannot get any better than this in Bali if you dont require being near the sea (except at the Fourseasons Ubud or something)...

You can see the ocean from the view however!

give this some serious thought. its truly unique bali experience
