My girlfriend and me want to celebrate a great year with a vacation to Bali in September.
However - it's a little complicated. Let me try to explain:
We both want to see the wonders of Bali: culture, beaches, waterfalls, rice fields, go snorkeling.
However: we never went backpack traveling and dont really dare to just go for it. We kind of want a hotel as our central anchor to come back to.
So we planned to book a hotel for the full 3 weeks, and book some local stays for a couple of days in between on top - especially in Ubud (so we dont have to bother with carrying all of our luggage around).
Weve got a few offers from our travel agency like the Movenpick Hotel in Jimbaran - which looks fantastic. Then again we were told that the south of Bali is a tourist grave and traffic is supposed to be horrible in that part of Bali.
So, considering all this - can you recommend Jimbaran or would you recommend another area; maybe even a hotel which could function as our hub?
Hope Bali can be enjoyed in a more old fashioned way of doing vacation :)
