Bali is a true tropical paradise, but it is also so much more. This holiday goes beyond its glittering golden beaches and startling crimson sunsets to discover dramatic volcanoes, lush paddy fields and beautiful temples steeped in ancient mythology. Visit villages entirely dedicated to arts and crafts. Bring home exquisitely handcrafted silver jewellery, expertly carved wooden artefacts and a trunk full of tales to tell.
4 Nights / 5 Days
City Short Breaks
On arrival at the Bali International Airport, you’ll be greeted by our local representative, who’ll help you transfer to your hotel. The rest of the day is at leisure. Overnight at the hotel in Bali.
Begin this morning with a visit to Celuk, famous for its incredible gold and silver artefacts. Explore the traditional village, chat up the craftsmen and strike a bargain over some exquisite silver jewellery – they make for beautiful gifts and souvenirs to take back home. And once you’ve had your fill, head to the Mas village to check out its intricate wooden handicrafts. The morning’s shopping spree is followed by a little dose of history. Visit the 11th century Elephant Cave in Bedulu and the 962AD Tirta Empul Temple famed for the healing powers of its central sacred spring. Listen to some fascinating stories, may be even take a restorative dip and then feeling recharged, head off to the highlands of Kintamani which may just be the highlight of this trip. Enjoy Mount Batur, Bali’s most spectacular crater rim, that rings the shimmering beautiful Lake Batur. Drink in the stunning views. Afterwards, visit Ubud’s central market for some more shopping. This time, for some traditional Balinese artefacts. Overnight at the hotel in Bali. (B)
Today you head to one of the most holy and iconic pilgrimage spots of Bali. Built more than 200 meters offshore, on a dramatic rock formation in the ocean, the Tanah Lot Temple in the Tabanan Regency offers visitors a slice of ancient Balinese mythology along with spectacular views of the setting sun. Drive back to the hotel.
Today you have the day at leisure. Choose to simply lounge about at the hotel and soak in the tropical sun or go on a half day trip to Dream Island and pick from a variety of activities like camel riding, paddle boarding and snorkelling. The more you pack-in the more you’ll want to do! Overnight at the hotel in Bali. (B) (Dream Island Tour is at an additional cost.)
This morning, you check out from the hotel and head to the airport to board your flight back home. Your luggage might be a bit overweight from all the shopping you’ve done. Don’t fret. It’s one of the marks of a successful holiday! (B)

Dear Sunita and Dudley, we got back from our Alaska/LA trip last week. We had a memorable holiday and this note is to thank you for the same! The itinerary was well thought through and captured most of the 'must-do' bits of Alaska. I must mention that you took care in ensuring we include the stuff that we like - flying, dogs, nature treks, river rafting et al Your choice of hotels was thoughtful, convenient and provided the local experience. This was our first holiday plan with your travel company. My family insists that we do the next ones with you too! have appended a couple of our Alaska pics. Thank you once again!
