It’s safe to say that 2020 has been quite an eventful year for many of us. The travel industry has been hit hard since the dawn of the COVID-19 pandemic earlier this year. Thankfully, countries are slowly opening up their borders as they gain the upper hand in flattening the curve. This means more and more people are starting to plan their post-pandemic traveling destinations.
According to a survey conducted by Booking.com, Bali was ranked in second place as the most desirable post-pandemic travel destination. The island of the Gods was mentioned along with the likes of Catalonia, Spain and Florida, USA.
With that said, if you’re one of those who listed Bali as your post-pandemic getaway, here are some ideas of where you should stay.
The tranquil beachside of Sanur is easily one of the best choices to stay in Bali, especially for those looking for a tranquil atmosphere to relax in. Sanur is often recommended for visitors who want to enjoy the quiet side of Bali. It is considerably less congested than more popular areas such as Kuta, while still offering a charming retreat in Bali. Plus, you’ll be located on the eastern coastline of Bali to catch a glimpse of the magical sunrise, as well as easy access to cross over to Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongan Islands.
Seminyak is arguably the quintessential tourism destination in Bali. Think of the Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills; it’s where the majority of the luxury resorts, restaurants, boutique shops and nightlife are centered in Bali. It’s also located on the western coastline, setting the stage for some of the most spectacular sunsets on the island.
Seminyak provides easy access to some of the most beautiful beaches- perfect for surfers and sun-bathers alike.
As we mentioned above, the Seminyak district is perhaps the most iconic and recognizable place in Bali. Many visitors start their adventure in Bali from Seminyak due to the amount of things to see and the vibrant culture that can be found here.
