Bali Vacation: A Trip That Strengthened Our Bond As Friends


To relive the old charm of our college friendship that involved us being silly and funny, the three of us planned a Bali vacation. Just as we entered the tropical island of Bali, we were well received by the people who happily greeted us with flowers and a big smile. This simply gave us a prior idea that this is going to be one amazing travel experience. Wherever we got a chance to interact with the locals, the easy-going and welcoming nature was visible through their conduct that made us feel at home! Moreover, another thing that was noteworthy about them was that each local shows utmost dedication to their respective jobs! We were spellbound by the welcoming nature of our hosts as well!

What made us choose Bali as our holiday destination was the fact that this place is a hub for amusement and is ideal for party animals like us! I was well aware about the entertaining nightlife, open culture, and rich heritage of this Indonesian island. All these factors were enough a reason for us to select this place for our much-needed vacay! On our visit, we learned that there’s more to Bali than what we expected. The way the picturesqueness of nature is preserved here is something worth cherishing and worthy of appreciation.

spent some fun time

As I’ve already mentioned that we’re all party animals and therefore starting the trip from clubs was a given! Since nightlife of Bali is what we wanted to explore the most, we stayed at a hotel that was located quite close to the happening pubs. We shared the enthusiasm with the crowd present on the streets and we could literally feel their positive celebratory vibes.

We looked around for a while to find a place that suited our mood and that’s when we ended up at Paddy’s. The loud music playing here attracted us instantly. We spent the whole night from then on dancing to the groovy music and made lasting memories!

2. A Contemplative Cruising Experience

Cruising is one of the best things to do in Bali.. We went for the Lembongan Island Cruise that left a calming effect on our minds. It is during this time when we tried scuba diving. This was an overwhelming experience through which one can be struck by epiphany. The marine life is like another world that leaves a mark on your mind and make your heart grow fonder towards the vastness of nature. This is when I could associate the whole experience with the movie, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara.

3. Continuing With Water Sports – This Time, Rafting

This experience was one of its kinds. Enjoying the thrill that pumped the adrenaline as well as the amazing views around us, we had a blast during Ayung River White water rafting. The guide provided to us didn’t only assisted us throughout the experience but was also a great company. He pushed us to try out some fun things and took our pictures and videos as well. This is one of the best water sports activities in Bali that you can try out!.

Our Experience With TravelTriangle

TravelTriangle assisted us in making negotiations with various agents. The agent that we finalised was Flying Feathers and Miss Reena coordinated with us on their behalf. Discussion with her went on without a hassle. After carefully looking into the details of quotations and putting our customized desires on the table, she made sure that everything has been taken into consideration. She even helped in the currency exchange process. She’s been a great help and this is why we have suggested a few friends to prefer her, as they’re also planning for a Bali tour in some time!

Dos And Don’ts For Travelers Going For A Bali Vacation

1. Make sure you plan at least a one-day stay at Ubud Village, as Ayung River and the forest are a sight to behold
