The beautiful island of Bali in Indonesia is a popular travel destination for those looking to explore the great outdoors. The island has become increasingly more popular as a study abroad destination in recent years due to its amazing natural beauty and vibrant culture. The capital of Seminyak is situated on the east coast, close to the busy surfing beaches of Kuta and Sanur. You’ll be able to reach Seminyak by sea from the capital as it is only a 20 minute boat ride away. This gives you excellent access to the mainland.
Bali’s primary attraction is of course the famous “Sanggar” or Mount Batur trek which you are guaranteed to love. If you’re traveling solo, this is a good way to spend your days ahead of going to Seminyak or Jimbaran Beach. If you have your own accommodation in Seminyak or your own private room at the hotel you are staying in, then you’ll want to stretch out as much as possible during your time in Bali. A tour of the area and a visit to the local markets (called “warung”) are also good ways to spend your days. You may also want to meet people while in Bali – perhaps someone from your flight attendant office has recommendations of local places to go and things to see – or you could strike up some interesting joint ventures with fellow travelers.
If you’re traveling solo female, you will want to consider a scooter rental in Bali. There are plenty of companies in Seminyak who offer scooters and mini bikes for hire, and at quite reasonable prices too. You can find one to rent from almost any company. You will need to bring your own bike, or rent one from one of the many companies that will pick it up at the airport and deliver it to your accommodation.
While on your solo trip, it’s important to meet people and make new friends. When you’re in Bali, there are a number of popular places to meet new friends and make new connections. In Seminyak, there is a popular bar called Merahini which is visited by a number of Westerners on their solo tours of Seminyak. It’s a fun place to hang out and enjoy the friendly atmosphere. If you’re a traveler who is open to meeting new people and learning about other cultures, then Seminyak might be just right for you.
For an independent female traveler, one of the best places to visit in Bali for a truly authentic experience is Ubud. Ubud is a small town in the foothills of the Nusa Penida Mountains, surrounded by beautiful, lush landscape. It is a popular area for solo female travelers to visit. Here they can explore the cultural aspects of Balinese cuisine, wander through the streets of Ubud marketplace, and even take part in the local arts and crafts.
For those on a scooter tour of Bali, you will need a scooter driver to get you around. A lot of hotels provide scooter drivers to their guests. So, if you book your Bali travel insurance ahead of time, it will save you the hassle of arranging the scooter driver and will also ensure that you have a driver ready to go when you are ready to begin your tour. As long as you have advance notification, a scooter driver can drop you off at any of the five main secluded bays in Ubud at very reasonable rates.
And lastly, when you get to Seminyak, there will be a great market in front of the town called Ubud Bali Tuktu. It is a market full of stalls selling everything from fruits and vegetables to souvenirs and clothes. This market is open Sunday to Thursday and it is located at the corner of Jalan Raya Ubud.
