If you’re dreaming of a bright Christmas instead of white, if you’re ready to exchange snow for sands and sunshine, Bali could be your Christmas paradise. Despite being predominantly Hindu, Christmas has become one of the most festive and touristy occasions in Bali. From shopping to charity, discover how to spend the holiday season in Bali.
Bali is a great place to visit if you’re looking to take a vacation from work, but not many people consider coming here during the Holiday Season. If you’re planning to come here during Chrismas and you don’t know what to do, here are six things you can include in your travel plans:
Shop, Shop, and Shop Some More!
It doesn’t matter when you come to Bali, shopping will always be something that you can include in your list. There are many shops and stalls that sell authentic items that you can’t find anywhere else, from clothing, souvenirs, and dried foods, to authentic goods. If you love local shopping, Bali is definitely the place you will love!
Devour the Christmas Feast
While the majority of people in Bali and the country of Indonesia is Muslim, it doesn’t mean that they disregard Chrismas. Actually, many restaurants around Bali offers a Christmas Deal with some classic dishes such as roast chicken, vegetable, mash potato and gravy, and more. We recommend you hop by to La Lucciola, as that’s one of the most famous restaurants when it comes to seasonal menus.
Party the Night Away
Bali is known to be among the most party-heavy places in Southeast Asia. The nightlife scene here is vibrant and exciting at all times, thanks to the abundance of tourists who come all-year round. Therefore, if you’re looking to fill your Christmas nights with something that you will forever remember, going out clubbing in Bali will definitely be among them. We recommend you go to Cocoon Beach Club or Ku De Ta, as those are two of the most famous clubs in Bali.
Take a Yoga Course
If you don’t like to spend your Christmas among the crowds and the chaotic nature of the event, we recommend you take a mat and find a beautiful secluded beach for a getaway. If you’re looking to enjoy a nice little private yoga lesson for your Christmas night, Kookaburra Yoga in Ubud is the best place to go. You can relax your mind and body, allowing you to realign your thoughts and internal energy so that you are ready to take on the new year with a fresh mind.
Volunteer for Charity
Christmas is the time for generosity, compassion, and joy, so if you’re looking to spread that Holiday Cheers, volunteering for a charity program is definitely a great option. You will get to do things that are beneficial to others while feeling a sense of fulfilment that you can only get when you do something good.
Enjoy the Fireworks
Of course, how can we not mention the fireworks! Bali is a melting pot of many different cultures, from Muslim, Chinese, Christian, Hindu, and so many more, which makes it the Capital of Holidays. If you’re interested in seeing the Christmas fireworks, Kuta and Canggu are where you can get the best views of the display.
Relax on the Beach
If you don’t want to be a part of any crazy events and the loud crowd, you can simply go to a beach and just gaze out at the setting sun and sleep the night away. There are many great luxury hotels around the island that will allow you to enjoy that coveted peace and quiet that you may be craving.
