Adventures and other sports

If you feel more adventurous, try bungee jumping. Or you can explore the lovely mountains on bikes. Hiking is probably the most popular activity among travelers. Trails range from easy, which can be walked in couple of hours to hard, which are best left for those with more experience. Visiting the Waterfalls in Bali is another lovely thing you can try.

Take it easier and plan a game of golf. Bali has 3 proper 18 hole golf courses, one in Nusa Dua at the Bali Golf & Country Club, one in Tanah Lot at Le Meridien Nirvana and one in Bedugal in the highlands at the Handara Kosaido Country Club.

Or you can play tennis, cricket, bowling or even football (soccer).

Relaxing, fun and shopping
