DETAILED DESCRIPTION

In Singapore for business, the Grand Prix, a wedding, reunion, or another event? While in the Lion City, take advantage of this major airline hub and turn your trip into a vacation with these quick and easy add-on getaways.

Leave the bustling city of Singapore behind for Ubud, the heart and cultural soul of Bali. This quick and easy 5-day getaway to the lush island of Bali takes you to its verdent rice paddies and ends on the beach. Bicycle through the paddies, admire stunning valley vistas on a sunset walk, meet locals at the market, get acquainted with the active local art scene, explore temples, and relax beachside.

DAY-TO-DAY

DAY 1: Ubud

Leave the bustling city of Singapore behind for Ubud, the heart and cultural soul of Bali. Upon arrival at Denpasar airport on Bali, a private transfer will whisk you north into the green rice-terraced countryside. Once a small village, Ubud has grown into a thriving yet laid-back community that offers world-class restaurants, yoga and vegan eateries, temples and spirituality, silversmiths and painters, and remarkable traditional architecture amidst a serene and lush landscape. Check into your hotel and settle in. Take it slow by unwinding at the spa or enjoying a book while overlooking the jungles. In the late afternoon, set off on a scenic sunset walk along Campuhan Ridge. Although it is long at 9km, this easy nature walk offers a stunning vista of the hillside and valley which are dotted with small village houses and rice fields.

DAY 2: Ubud

Start the day with a refreshing bike ride through verdant green rice paddies, visiting rural communities, and seeing a side of Balinese life most tourists never get to see. Begin your journey at the top of a hill, coasting down at an easy pace through the countryside of Ubud, passing by green expanses of rice paddies. Along the way, stop at ancient temples as well as rural villages. Arrive at the sacred temple where a priest will take you to a natural holy water spring for a Balinese blessing. In the afternoon, visit the markets of Ubud where locals sell street food, fruits, and handicrafts and folk art. Afterwards, venture into the famous Monkey Forest, a sacred jungle home to mischievous Balinese long-tailed macaques. Make your way into the forest and you'll find the Pura Dalem Agung Padangtegal, an ancient temple dedicated to worship of the dead.

DAY 3: Ubud

Visit the Agung Rai Museum of Art, a traditional Balinese house filled with a private collection of works by local and foreign artists. Here, learn the Balinese art of batik-making, and try your hand at the dyeing technique that makes the process so special. Then, meet a pair of local chefs for a private cooking lesson at their Balinese home. Guided by the chefs, pick vegetables and spices from the organic garden and create a range of Balinese dishes over a traditional wood-fired oven. After lunch, stop by Puri Lukisan Museum, established by the King of Ubud, which houses an extensive collection of of paintings and woodcarvings. The museum's well-manicured and lush gardens replete with fountains and pools make it a lovely place to stroll.

DAY 4: Seminyak

Today, transfer to Seminyak to enjoy your penultimate day by the beach. Unlike the peaceful greenery of Ubud, Seminyak offers a vibrant beachfront flanked with a long promenade dotted with cafes, boutiques, restaurants, and nightlife scene. Whether shopping, surfing, or enjoying a Balinese massage, there is a wealth of activities to fill up your day of leisure.

DAY 5: Departure

After a quick transfer back to the airport, you’ll be on your way back to Singapore.
