where to stay in Bali

Jump to last reply

Hi, my fiancé & I are planning our honeymoon in Southeast Asia. We will be leaving just after Christmas & staying through New Years. Not sure exactly how long we will stay. Neither of us have been before. We are planning to do a 5 day cruise from Singapore to a couple of ports in Malaysia and Thailand before catching a flight to Bali.

My first question is regarding the travel. We are planning on leaving Dec 26th. The cruise leaves port around 5:30 or so on the evening of the 28th. Is it reasonable to expect we could make the trip from NC to Singapore in that timeframe, while allowing a buffer for possible delays? I've been to Europe & South America but never over to Asia so I don't really know what to expect.

My 2nd question is where to stay in Bali. We are an active couple, in our late 20s. We like a little bit of everything on our vacations: some time to relax on the beach, some fun active endeavors and some local culture. We would want access to good restaurants/places to grab drinks. No need for wild nightlight. And we would probably want to avoid any excessively tourist area.

From what little research I've done, I think we would want to stay in one of the beach areas (maybe Seminyak??) but we definitely want to make a trip to Ubud. We are probably in the middle budget range. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Amber
