Welcome to Bali! You'll arrive at Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS), and a driver will be waiting to take you to your hotel in Ubud, about one hour and 30 minutes away. During the drive, you'll see the island's twisting roads, quaint villages, and terraced rice fields. 

Once you arrive in Ubud and check in at your hotel, you'll have the rest of the day and evening free to relax. You can explore the town's boutiques and cafes, take a yoga class, and try some authentic Indonesian food.

For those who aren't keen on adrenaline, you can also find waterfalls, a swimming pool, and incredible views of the surrounding jungle. Once you've gotten your fill of adventure, you can continue to explore the area with your driver, perhaps visiting a local market, Sacred Monkey Forest, or stopping for a traditional Balinese restaurant for lunch.

If you'd like to enjoy the beach, you can advantage of the numerous beach outposts—some of which are outfitted with oversized bean bags and colorful umbrellas—book a snorkeling or scuba diving expedition, go horseback riding on the shore, take a surfing lesson, or go on a swim.

There are also a number of excellent restaurants and cafes you can try. Seminyak comes alive at night as the town has an abundance of nightclubs, or you can venture to the nearby town of Kuta for more themed clubs and bars.
