5 day trip from Singapore and 5 more days - Bali?

Jump to last reply

DH is going to Singapore for work in August and I am tagging along. We have 5 full days in Singapore and then 6 days remaining. We are trying to decide where to go for the remaining time. We have to return to Singapore on day 6 for an early morning flight home.

As I look at travel guides, 5 days seems very short! We have not been anywhere else in Asia, besides Singapore and Japan, which we thoroughly enjoyed. Major interests are culture, history and arts/crafts, as well as natural wonders. Unfortunately, DH has a troubled knee, so major hiking or long walks are out. We prefer to sleep in one place and journey out. Any suggestions?

Penang and Bali are possibilities. I've been researching Bali and have a lot of questions. We like sleeping in one place and traveling from there. If we go there, where should we stay - at a place like Sanur (or other beach area) and then take day trips? The Ubud area sounds the most interesting to us. Should we stay there? If so, in town or in the rice fields? It would be nice to be able to walk out to evening entertainment, but also, it would be nice to enjoy beautiful views from the place we are staying. Decisions, decisions - need to make them soon as the hotels I am looking at are booking fast.

Any help is appreciated. Thank you!
