Back on Asia board - possible trip to Bali

Jump to last reply

Haven't been on the Asia board much lately. Have hung out on Europe boards last few years. It was great familiarity (and then sadness) that i found when I returned, especially since i met many of you at the GTG in Los Angeles several years ago. Familiarity because so nice to see all the familiar names and all the great advice -- and especially that Kathie is still dispensing advice patiently and responding to the same questions over and over. But sadness when i saw the memorial to gpanda. It really is a community when I realize this brought tears to my eyes. Thank you, Bob, for all your banter and then your loving memorial posting.
Deep breath..... and now ask my question: Will Bali tick our boxes for upcoming trip in June 2014? I used to say we were active, well traveled middle aged couple, but along the way we did become seniors, albeit still active.
Last year's trip to Sicily was too much moving around and we were sick the entire time, so this year looking for something with low hassle factor, while still lots of beauty, cultural sites, great food, good place to visit in June, and some "veg" time to add to the sightseeing time.
Turkey is high on our list, but would require flights from Istanbul to Capadoccia and then to Antalya for beach/veg time. A lot of flying in two weeks.
Thailand would be another option, but also would require flights from Bangkok to Chaing Mai and then to the beaches and back to Bangkok. (And I've been there, although husband has not.)
Bali sounds like it has a mix of beauty, interesting sights, some "soft adventures" (cooking classes, volcano visits, biking/walking) and that June may be a good month to visit. We would want to limit our stay to two (or 3?) places (as most people recommend on this board) including Ubud.
I have read some great (and helpful) trip reports already so I have some idea of the options.
Since we would have two weeks, what are suggested itineraries and places to stay in the "comfort class" $100 to $150 range. Is there someplace a bit off the beaten track with low hassle factor to get there? Other ideas? input/advice?
Thanks so much. And nice to be back on the Asia board.
