Hello! I’ve been religiously browsing through these boards as my wedding gets closer and closer but never really posted – don’t really know why. But I decided I want to have a place where I can share my wedding thoughts and questions anytime I want and it’s actually welcomed! I guess I’m starting to feel like I shouldn’t be talking about the wedding so much with all my fam and girlfriends. SO…here goes:
We finally decided on our honeymoon and are soooo excited to go to Bali! We weren’t sure if we should go for it or just do something simpler close to home but we decided that our honeymoon is worth the splurge and adventures. We can’t wait to explore such an exotic place!
SO…does anyone have any traveling tips for Bali? 🙂

Hey! First congrats on your wedding, and congrats on your excellent choice of honeymoon! 😉 I was in Bali for at least five freaking times! The last time I was there with my fiance. It’s the most romantic island I have ever been to. It can be raining a lot sometimes, esp during the rainy season, but the weather would be still great, ranging 25-35, lots of sun!
Depending on in which are you’ll be staying, there will be a lot of activities to do. If you’ll be staying in Kuta area, surfing, body boarding, and partying the whole night are the main activities ppl do. If you’re staying in Nusa Dua area, which is more quiet with softer waves, you can do a lot of water sports such as parasailing, water skiing, kayaking, or sailing with glass bottom boat to turtle island or to witness dolphins. If you’ll be staying in Ubud area (where Julia Roberts in Eat, Pray, Love, was) you’ll be enjoying green hills, rice fields, peaceful and picturesque area, with lots of spa offers.
Enjoy! And take lots of pictures! =)

Talk to your doctor soon. There are shots that you are going to want to take before going and some of them come in two doses that have to be taken some time apart. You will want to find out what kind of shots and a time period that you will need before leaving.

I love Bali! I would recommend dividing your time between the beach and the interior. Ubud is amazing! I am not a fan of the touristy Kuta area. The culture there is very beautiful so definitly try to experience it. Get as many spa treaments as you can -they are cheap and so good.
There are no specific vaccinations recommended for Bali other than Hepititis A which is recommended for travel anywhere. I would bring a basic first aid kit with things like Band Aids and Neosporin.
