There is plenty to see and do in Bali and you could easily spend weeks here and only see a fraction of the island, however, if you’re starting to get itchy feet, here are a few easy side trips you can easily take to nearby islands:
The Gili Islands
The Gili Islands are made up of three small islands. For those who enjoy the remote island experience, the Gili Islands offer just that. No motorized vehicles are allowed on the islands, but there are bicycles and horse-drawn carriages available. The waters are warm and clear, and it’s a hotspot among divers.
Lombok is an easy day trip from Bali and the drawing features are the looming volcano and beautiful waterfalls. There are lots of trekking tours and bike tours for nature lovers.
