Bali

Give me a list of things I should do there on a 1 month long holiday in Bali.

Give me a suggestion of one or more 5 star hotels that won't disappoint.

Tell me the pros and cons of Bali.

Any members here living in Bali?

Thanks TD members!

admire the end to end traffic(rent a scooter)
learn to surf
get drunk
wear a skirt around the temples
Find nice places to watch the sunset

TBH The best thing I liked there was the white water rafting

Look on Agoda, there's loads.
I rented a villa with pool for 7 of us. The best area to stay is probably Seminyak. You dont wanna be in Kuta If you're going for a Month, do half in Seminyak and the rest in Ubud which is up in the hills

The beaches aren't what they're cracked up to be,you can't swim in many and the sand is gritty.

Nusa Dua is where the high end resorts are, if you're cashed up. Seminyak is good too - has high end, mid-range & low-end places. It's also near Double Six beach, lots of bars & restos. I stayed in a low-end place, so can't recommend hi-so ones. I agree w/ Dill, don't stay in Kuta. Kuta beach was ugly & full of plastic rubbish when I visited during xmas holidays.

There are many places to go in Bali - temples, beaches, rafting, etc. Look up Bali in wikitravel - that's my go-to guide.

There are several pic threads abt Bali here - mine, Dill's, Terry's, Neo's, KW's, etc. If you're staying for a month, you can indeed explore Ubud, Tegalalang and the mountains.

Cheers & hope you post pics afterwards!

I've stayed in the Bali Hilton, Nusa Dua. It was nice. I wasn't disappointed.

I can recommend some pool villas unless you are looking more for a huge resort complex like the 4 seasons.

I recommend going to one of the Gili islands of you have that long. They have some nice villas there. I stayed at the Pearl of Trawangan and it was decent. If you want the height of good service maybe not up to your standards. However for the price of around $300 a night they have nice private pool villas.

The restaurant near it I believe called Kokomo was quite good.

The Slippery Stone is quite a nice restaurant and a bit different than anything I have seen in Asia. It's like a Greek palace inside. It is near Seminyak.
