Will we be bored in Bali by 16 days?

I live in Australia and i am 17 years old. I have never been to bali before but my friends and i are going there for schoolies in november.

We are staying at the bounty hotel have to options. We can stay for 13 days or 16 days.

We were just wondering if 13 days is enough to see bali or if we will be bored by 16 days.

If you have been to bali, what do you recommend?

Hi, I would stay the 16 (but then again I'd stay for a month).

I've been 19 times and go for 2 weeks twice a year and 3 weeks in January.

You will not be bored. I still haven't seen everything.

The price difference for the extra 3 days is minimal. You can eat and drink cheaply. Even if you have a few down days to chill out (or sleep) LOL.

The Bounty is great for schoolies. It's a hotel mainly for young people and is right in the middle of the clubs and restaurants. Go to the Bounty nightclub. It's great. Every fortnight they have a foam party which is supposed to be great.

Make sure you stay sober a few days so you can do a few day trips. Bali is an amazing place. I'm sure it won't be your last trip.

P.S. Beers are only $1 or $1.50 for a large bottle.

You can get meals for less than $5.

If you and your mates are big eaters go to Alley Cats.

Small warung with 4 tables. 2 tables are big so you can share. can’t remember what it was called but I wrote down what’s in it). It costs 95.000 ($12) and if you finish it you get your photo on the wall.

It includes- 200g tenderloin steak, 200g pork steak in basil and pepper, 2 jumbo sausages, 150g chicken breast, 2 fried eggs, smoked back bacon, fried tomato, onion rings, chips, mashed potato and gravy.

That’s more than I eat in 2 days. 2 guys had it while I was there and it took them over an hour. It’s piled on a big oval plate and also a big bowl of onion rings and a big mug of gravy.
