Bali Travel Guide! What to Do, Eat & See!

Hi guys! I wanted to share a mini travel guide of Bali since so many of you are asking what we did while we were there! We had 5 full days there so we had a good amount of time to explore but it definitely was not enough time to see everything! I wanted to share some of the thing that we did, ate, and saw! If you guys have any other recommendations for anyone, leave them in the comments below so we can all see!



We stayed in Canggu! I have heard this is the place to be in Bali. I’m really glad we stayed here! It was really easy to get around on scooters we rented and there were TONS of awesome food options nearby, and we were close to a beach! I will link our AirBnb here! It was 4 bedrooms and really pretty!



I wanted to list a few of my fav cafes that we went to! I think Jaci is doing a full Bali food guide so if she posts that i’ll come back and link it!

We ate at Peloton like 5 times! BEST food EVER! It’s a completely vegan restaurant and they have so many awesome options. You NEED to try the Mango Madness smoothie, waffle fries, and the nachos! So good.

 We also loved Kynd Community! The owners were so so sweet and kynd (hehe) and the food was also super yummy! This is the place in Bali that does the letters on their smoothie bowls! Get the Cookies n Cream Freakshake, the Dream Boat waffle and the Berry Tropical bowl!

The Shady Shack was another one of my favorites! We went here our first day for our first meal! I got some kind of falafel plate and it was so yummy! I think I also got a smoothie bowl and that was great too.

Also you have to go to Mad Pops! Not necessarily for the ice cream but more for the picture… The ice cream is all vegan and coconut based and i’m not a huge coconut lover so I wasn’t crazy about it but i’m still glad we went! And be warned, this place is extremely TINY. Like 5 ft x 5 ft… You can only fit like 3 people inside so me and Jaci taking our Canon 1DX cameras in and trying to get pics and videos during the busiest hour was not a good idea! I did have a Mad Pops popsicle at Peloton and that was better than the ice cream, they sell those in the ice cream shop too so get one of those!



One of my favorite things we did was drive to Ubud to the rice terraces! We had to wake up at like 4 am and drive an hour for this but it was so worth it. They were amazing! Apparently you have to pay to get in if you go later in the morning/day so we went super early and didn’t have any issues with getting in for free!


We went to the Bali Swing (also in Ubud)! This was so different than we expected. We thought that it was just a free swing in the middle of a jungle somewhere but it’s actually a place with multiple swings and a pretty high fee to swing on them! I want to say it was $28 per person… I could be wrong though but it was something like that (it was $1 or $2 to just get into the place with the swings, but then you had to pay more to swing on them)! I think that included a lunch plate, drink and access to all the swings but we still thought it was really overpriced especially since we just wanted to swing on one swing! It was still really fun though! Are you have a great dane? Here you can find dog food reviews. If you go, make sure to snap a pic so you have something to help you remember what you spend your $28 on haha!!

We also took a day trip to Nusa Penida! I wrote and entire post on that already so I will link it here! Isn’t the water so pretty! I swear it was this blue in real life! Amazing!


That’s all for today! Tomorrow i’m going to do a September Favorites post. I also still have more Bali pics to post!! I hope you guys find this post useful, have a good weekend!

    Loved reading this! My husband and I are going to Bali in December for 10 days. Random question but did y’all bring a lot of cash to pay for things or were you able to use your credit cards?

    Hi Aspyn! The pictures you took in Bali were stunning! I am heading to Canggu and Ubud this December for a pre-wedding shoot with my fiance and i was wondering if you would recommend us to visit the Bali Swing! Were there long queues there?

    P.S. I love your straw sling bag! Do you know where I can purchase it in Bali!

    Thank you and have a lovely October!

    Love, Angela

    I went to Bali Seminyak and a food place I loved was Cafe Organic and Kim soo. I also visited Ubud monkey forests and waterfall, which I would highly recommend. x Also I would love a blog post on how to blog and tips and tricks x

    Bali is just the perfect place to eat the best vegan food! This is one of the main reasons I want to go to Bali so so bad :D All the food looks so so good *-* But besides that Bali has such a beautiful nature, lovely beaches and is perfect for taking beautiful pictures like you did!
    Super exited for all the Bali vlogs and maybe a travel diary on you main channel?

    Love from Germany

    Aspyn! This trip looks amazing. I didn’t realize that you had to pay for the swings either… but that is great to know! Also, I’m not a big fan of coconut either. Thanks for all these tips!

    I’ve never been to Bali but it looks absolutely beautiful!! I actually know the guy who owns the Peloton Supershop Vegan Café – how crazy is that?! I work with his brother! So it’s amazing to hear that you loved it :) xo
