Customizable itinerary

Prepare for a captivating 6-day journey through the highlights of Bali and Nusa islands. From the mesmerizing Barong dance to the serene shores of Lake Batur, this meticulously curated itinerary invites you to immerse yourself in Bali’s ancient traditions and breathtaking landscapes.

Venture beyond Bali’s shores to the untouched realms of Nusa Penida, where you’ll be awed by the island’s dramatic cliffs, pristine beaches, and diverse marine life. Explore the awe-inspiring Goa Giri temple and lose yourself in the tranquility of the secluded coastal havens.

As your journey draws to a close, savor the final moments in the coastal enclave of Jimbaran, where you can reflect on the transformative experiences that have left an indelible mark on your soul.

Unlock the enchanting realms of Bali and the Nusa Islands on this captivating exploration.

A warm greeting awaits at Bali International Airport; your private guide and driver will meet you at the arrival lounge and take you directly to your hotel. Your knowledgeable guide will be happy to answer any questions along the way and will assist you with check-in and registration at the hotel.

After a short rest, we will drive from the south of Bali to Ubud. The Balinese kings, benevolent to the arts, transformed their court seat into a true global village. Ubud shops, galleries and craft shops blend traditional arts and crafts with modern design. Visiting European artists, attracted by the lure of an untouched tropical paradise, were encouraged to stay. They gave new impetus to the existing local arts while creating some exciting new forms in the process. This atmosphere reverbs to this day. A visit to Ubud means indulging in the local arts, visiting the ancient temples and enjoying the archetypical Balinese surroundings of steep gorges and sculpted rice fields.

Today you will have the best of culture and nature in a day. First, you will attend a playful introduction to the Balinese philosophy. The gracious Barong dance in Batubulan, performed by professional actors and dancers. Proceed to the rightfully famous woodcarving center of Mas. Young artisans with amazing skills emblaze tropical woods with life.

Then we will drive further to the east and enjoy the breathtaking view over the volcano and the Lake Batur, while having lunch in Penelokan, Kintamani. This is the largest lake in Bali and can be found in the smaller, secondary caldera of the Batur volcano, right at the foot of Mount Abang.

We will make the final stop at Tegalalang rice terraces for you to enjoy its stunning view before heading back to your hotel in Ubud.

Meals: (Breakfast/Lunch/_)

After breakfast, we will say goodbye to Ubud and drive down south to catch your speed boat to Nusa Penida.

Atuh beach will be the first place to visit after reaching Nusa Penida. Atuh beach is also called Balinese Raja Ampat, because of the rocky stones lining up in the middle of the beach which makes it looks like the great Raja Ampat.  The next stop will be on the other side of the Atuh area, which will give you an incredible view of the cliff and the huge coral reef amidst the sea.

The last destination will be the fabulous Goa Giri temple, located inside a giant cave. The cave’s entrance is so small that it can only fit one person at a time.

Meals: (Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner)

Today we will discover three stunning beaches in the south of Nusa Penida. The first visit is to Kelingking beach, a white sandy beach with crystal water has a spectacular view since there are chunks of a cliff that towering in the beach area which forms the whale shape. After exploring Kelingking beach, we will continue to the famous beach Angel Billabong, where you can swim in the natural pool that is surrounded by rocky stones (not recommended to swim if the high tide comes).

The last destination will be Crystal bay beach which provides a gorgeous view surrounded by two headlands and a small hill on the high seas. You can spend time sunbathing, swimming or snorkeling here.

Meals: (Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner)

On the last day of the tour, the trip will start in the early morning to Crystal Bay. We will explore the exotic coral view and hundreds of fish species. We will visit three separate sites during your day trip to see different environments. Snorkeling will start from the Manta area, Gamat area, and finish at the Crystal Bay wall. Nusa Penida offers truly spectacular sights of the majestic Manta Rays as well as the incredible Oceanic Sunfish or Mola Mola. You will experience a truly amazing and unforgettable snorkel. After all the activities, we will have lunch at the local restaurant and back to the harbor.

Upon arriving back on the mainland, you will be transferred to Jimbaran. This charming fishing village has changed into a pleasant and peaceful little resort in recent years. Here you will also have the chance to enjoy one of the best beaches on the island. And the fresh-fish barbeques served up by the little stalls lining the beach as far as you can see, they are probably the best seafood on the island.

Meals: (Breakfast/Lunch/_)

After breakfast and a leisurely morning on your own, you will check out and your private driver will pick you up and take you to the airport for your departure flight.

Very professional and went out of their way to help us in anyway that they could. Elly Do is a fantastic communicator and travel advisor. We really enjoyed our trip due to Asia Pioneer.

PERFECT international solo trip to Thailand!

This was my first international trip and I’m so happy I made the decision to use Asian pioneer travel. Cherry is the best! She was with me from beginning to end answering every question and accommodating different arrangements perfectly. She even checked up on me during my trip. Roni, my tour guide and driver did an amazing job in Bangkok with me. They are so proud of their country and even took me shopping on their spare time. Beautiful souls. Then when I traveled to Chang Rai and Mai my next tour guide Dare and Johnny are the best duo to have. Dave is so funny and make sure I was happy. Johnny provided snacks from his hometown and they were delicious. I will definitely be planning to use this company again and highly recommend. Hotels are beautiful. Food spots are up to par and overall completely stress free and comfortable!
