5 things to do in Kuta, Bali

When you’re ready for the sights and sands of a foreign country, there’s no time like the present to head to Kuta in Bali. Kuta is a beach and resort area to the south of Bali in Indonesia. It’s known for its surfing hot spots, party atmosphere, and sandy beaches. When you’re ready to swap the daily 9 to 5 grind for surfing lessons and water parks, it’s time to book your airfares! Here are five things you can do in Kuta, although the list is truly endless.

Kuta Beach

There’s nothing like a trip to the beach to relax the body and soul, and Kuta Beach is no different. Book your accommodation along the beach front, and meander through the Kuta Art Market, while relaxing in the hands of a masseuse or sunbathing on golden sands. Swim to your heart’s content, play beach soccer, or why not enjoy the many restaurants, bars, and entertainment hot spots? If you’re an avid surfing fan, you can even hit the waves as either a beginner or expert. Kuta Beach is definitely a ‘must see’ destination.

Waterbom Bali

If you’ve planned a family vacation, a trip to Waterbom Bali is a must. Not only will the children enjoy this waterslide and recreational park, but so will mum and dad. It’s adjacent to the expansive Discovery Shopping Mall, is within walking distance to accommodation, and even offers eateries, tropical gardens, and fun games. Being a water park, it’s also home to action-packed rides such as the Climax Body Slide, Superbowl, Race Track, and more. Once you’ve had your fill of water activities, you can then meander over to a restaurant and treat yourself to traditional Indonesian cuisine.

Dream Museum Zone

If you’re an art lover, but not in the traditional sense, you will just love what’s on offer in the Dream Museum Zone. If there’s one thing for sure, you won’t want to forget your camera! Within Dream Museum Zone, you have the opportunity to become a part of expansive wall paintings with 3D effects, and unlike traditional art galleries and museums, photos are encouraged. There are many different art themes to become a part of, and if you tire of being in the flash of the camera, you can make your way to the ancient temple garden for rest and relaxation.

Upside Down World

If your idea of fun is to visit tourist hot spots that you just don’t see every day, then Upside Down World should be first on your list. Upon entry, you will soon learn that not everything is as it seems, with specially designed rooms featuring furniture and décor that’s upside down. The seven unique rooms make great photo opportunities, and it will leave you feeling a little crazy as you jokingly undertake gravity-defying stunts.

Vihara Dharmayana

If, after all the action and fun of waterparks and other adrenaline-fuelling activities, you feel like something calming to top off your day, head to Vihara Dharmayana. This Buddhist temple is off the beaten track and dates back two centuries. Enjoy the bright, vivid colors and exquisite architecture as you take a break from the hustle and bustle of the township.
