What is the best area to be while in Bali? Is Kuta not the best place to be? If in Kuta, what options do I have to enjoy our vacation?
My husband & I have been going to Bali for several years & personally we find Kuta very crowded & touristy. Certainly it attracts the younger crowd so is great if you want to get in some surfing practice (very small waves), plenty of night clubs & hotels to suit all budgets. If you want a more exclusive holiday with a good beach to chill out on, book in to one of the hotels in Nusa Dua. On the other hand if you are looking to soak in the culture, Ubud in central Bali is a good spot to be, though do make sure to book in to a hotel that is a little away from teh main town.. Ubud is about an hour & half from Kuta or Nusa Dua by car (subject to traffic conditions, as it can get quite bad during peak periods) so you could do stay at any one & still do day trips to the others. over 6 years ago
