You will feel as if you are reborn.
I know that you are already excited and so I want to help you set your next itinerary. Below I have listed top exquisite must-visit places around Bali.
Lombok is well known for its beaches.
If you are a fan of white sandy beaches, then Selong Belanak should be your definite pick. You can go for a swim in its clear water or rent a boat for fishing delight.
Batu Payung is not a typical beach as it is full of rocky terrain and devoid of white sand. Sometimes, the rocks take the shape of a human face, rising out of the beaches.
Tangsi Beach, Mawun Beach and Kuta Beach are other delicacies worth visiting.
Nusa Penida forms the biggest of the chunks of Nusa islands.
Do eerie caves sound thrilling to you? Then, Pura Goa Giri Putri Cave will not disappoint you. You can find an underground temple there where you will not mind the serene atmosphere created out of prayers and the sweet smell of incense.
You might fall in love with Peguyangan Waterfall and Seganing Falls mostly because of its crystal clear drinkable water.
If you want to witness unique landscapes, then you can’t miss Kelingking ‘T-Rex’, Broken Beach and Angel’s Billabong.
Located in the east of Bali, the chain of islands is collectively known as Nusa Tenggara.
Graded second in popularity to Bali, you will be amazed by its diversity.
Be it the Alor Island or West Timor, you name it, the combination of roaring volcanoes, crater lakes, clear blue waters and white sands will never disappoint you.
If rural ethnic setup delights you, then Sumbawa and Sumba are the places that you need to visit, which has retained its ancient cultures to date.

Komodo National Park, which is the habitat of Komodo dragons, giant carnivorous reptiles, is stationed on Komodo Island.
The visitors require expert tour guides for safety.
This place is famous for scuba diving and as you can have a direct encounter with sharks, sea-wasps Jellyfish and sea snakes, you better get yourself equipped with necessary precautions.
This is definitely not the place for faint-hearted and novice divers.
Java is densely populated.
The world’s biggest Buddhist temple, Borobudur, with its beautifully crafted structures called Stupas, is a pride of Java.
You can explore its Hindu and Buddhists temples, beaches and volcanoes which shrouds Java, giving it a characteristic flavour and rich cultural heritage.
This place is ideal for people looking for a luxurious escape.
The island is very organic and less crowded. Nature at its primal best.
Relaxation is what you are looking for after a long day spent outside. A good spa and morning yoga are all that is required here.
This place acts as a tonic to prepare you for your next line of an adventurous journey.
Rejoice, if you are a mountain person because I am going to take you to this mysterious volcanic mountain, called ”Kawah Ijen”. You just cannot miss it for anything in the world.
This place is perfect for hikers and mountain climbers.
Placed in Java, near to Bali, Mount Ijen is quite unique as, during the night, you could witness electric blue fire erupting from the mountain. This phenomenon is attributed to the emission of toxic sulphur gas, which has enough capacity to choke you unless you get yourself a tour guide.
Besides this, there is a toxic blue lake worth admiring against various shades of the purple and pink backdrop at sunrise.
The sight is heavenly and truly breath-taking.
So, what are you waiting for? Get an enriching experience and fulfil your dream with an awesome and soul-quenching tour to Indonesia. Hoping to see you there soon.
