If you have never vacationed solo, you don’t know what you are missing out on. Your maiden solo vacation should be somewhere warm with lovely beaches and hospitable locals only too willing to help. That is a subtle way of saying you need to take a solo vacation to Bali.
If you are a regular social media user, you will be forgiven for thinking that everybody has been to Bali, is headed to Bali or is planning a trip to Bali. There are myriads of reasons why people want to go to Bali.
Doesn’t every couple go to Bali to take moonlight walks on the beaches hand in hand and to swim in the beautiful blue ocean? If you are afraid that you will be made to feel forever alone, you need not worry. There is so much to do and see that you will be glad that you went alone.
A Solo Bali Adventure
The beauty of traveling alone is that you are free to do whatever you like whenever you like. In addition, you will not have to go through the eye roll of forcing yourself to do something you detest. Everyone wants to go zip lining while the very idea scares the daylights out of you.
You can also choose to go for solo adventures or join a group of other solo travelers and get a guide to take you through the intrigues of Bali. When you are solo in Bali, there is no limit to what you can do.
Solo Travelers Love Bali
You can be sure you will not be the only solo adventurer in the beautiful tropical island. There will be lots of others like you because Bali is a haven for solo tourists. Once you have settled in, you will find other visitors who chose to vacation on their own for whatever reason. Some are there because their friends could not adjust their schedules while others just needed a break from everyone.
You can join up with them for a Bali cruise tour and enjoy a boat ride to Komodo Island or get a tour guide to show you the sights and sounds of Bali. Other activities you can enjoy with your new friends include:
Bali is the perfect destination to be alone yet surrounded by people. Many solo travelers want to get away from the usual and familiar while meeting new people and making new friends.
The Bali Tourism Infrastructure is Well Established
You will have no problem with logistics and your travel plans because Bali is an international tourist destination with a well established tourism infrastructure. You may have to make some minor sacrifices with regard to transportation costs which tend to go up when you are a lone traveler.
If you want to cut back on costs, join a group tour. Taxis can be very expensive and renting a car or motorbike on terrain you are not familiar with may end up being dangerous for you.
The lone tourist has a lot of options when it comes to where to live. You can go the usual resort or hotel way. Alternatively, you can choose to experience real Bali living and opt for a traditional Balinese home. That will give you an authentic experience of Balinese culture, food, and way of life.
If you plan to visit different destinations, you could switch it up and go for a villa in your next destination so that you get to a variety of experiences.
Bali is a treasure trove for the solo traveler seeking to experience the island with no distractions. As with any other solo adventures you have experienced before, you must endeavor to stay safe. Wandering out in the wee hours of the morning alone may not be a very good idea.
However, there are a lot of things you can do alone if you get an experienced guide to show you the way.
