Be a Wanderer: Instagram Worthy Spots in Bali

Last March I went with a group of friends on an all-girls trip to Bali. We really enjoyed the different scenic places that we went to and of course we took a lot of pictures. Sharing the top beautiful spots that we visited during our trip!

Tanah Lot






Tanah Lot is a popular temple in Bali. The temple is situated in a rock formation that can be reached by foot during low tide but once the water rises it’s surrounded by the sea.

Travel Tip: I read that this is one of the go to sunset spots in Bali. 

Uluwatu Temple





Uluwatu Temple is a Balinese sea temple located in South Kuta. The lush surroundings makes for a great backdrop for island pictures.

Travel Tip: Be careful of the monkeys since they’re notorious for stealing things such as sunglasses, hats, and even shoes.

Motel Mexicola





Motel Mexicola is one of the many restaurants in Seminyak, Bali. They serve Mexican food which is fairly affordable although a bit average in terms of taste. The place, which is a common backdrop for bloggers, is colorful with a lot of different areas for picture taking. 🙂

Sea Circus Bali





Sea Circus Bali is a cafe in Seminyak, Bali. It’s a nice place to go to for dessert or afternoon snack. I ordered a cake, and iced tea because of the humid weather. Their iced tea is one of my favorites from our stay at Bali. It’s colorful exterior makes for a pretty backdrop for pictures. Plus the interior looks good as well.

W Bali Seminyak





W Bali Seminyak is one of the luxury hotels in Seminyak, Bali. It’s a beach front resort that’s a perfect place to hangout during the afternoon. The entrance is lined with lush arched bamboos which makes for a good backdrop for pictures.

Travel Tip: Try to go early in the afternoon to get a good spot. We tried getting a seat around sunset and we had to wait for around half an hour to get a seat. Resorts like Potato Head and La Plancha have a more lively environment while W has a more relaxed feel and less packed with people.

Tegallang Rice Terraces



Situated in Ubud, the Tegallang Rice Terraces is a popular backdrop for tourists. You can walk around the field and there are a lot of different areas to set up as backdrop to your picture.

Travel Tip: Some locals ask for ‘donation’ when passing by their field we thought that the rate they were showing was per person but our driver who wasn’t with us when we were exploring the place told us that it was actually per group. Also wear comfortable shoes it’s a long walk to go around and sometimes the ground might be a bit muddy.

Bali Pulina



Bali Pulina is a Coffee Plantation that produces different kinds of coffee including Kopi Luwak or Civet Coffee which is one of the most expensive coffee in the world. After taking a a tour around the plantation which includes seeing the coffee making process, you get to sample the different kinds of coffee that they have for free although the Kopi Luwak is not included and you’ll have to pay for a cup. They have a rice terrace viewing deck wherein you could enjoy your coffee surrounded by the lush environment.

Travel Tip: Don’t miss the Kopi Luwak! Our group decided to order a cup and split it amongst ourselves just so we could at least try the most expensive coffee in the world.

Saraswati Temple





Saraswati Temple is a one of the temples in Ubud. The path to the temple is lined lotus flowers. The temple itself with its intricate design is a nice backdrop for pictures.

Travel Tip: Although less impressive the Ubud Palace is a short distance away from the Saraswati Temple. The Ubud Art Market is also near and the perfect place to biy souvenirs. Be ready to bargain to get a good deal!
