Location: Desa Pinggan, Kintamani
Located in Kintamani--a 1-hour short drive from Ubud, Pinggan Sunrise Spot gives a whole new meaning to sunrise-watching. From the top of the hillside, visitors can watch the sunrise with mesmerizing views of Mount Agung, Batur and Abang and feel as if they’re watching far above the clouds. It becomes even more spectacular when the sunlight shines through the fog between the valleys and mountains.
Mingle with nature by staying at this 5-star hotel Sthala Ubud that provides a superb lush green Ubud landscape with dense forests and an impressive view of the Wos River. The hotel can be reached just 15 minutes from Ubud centre. Many describe Ubud as the ‘Heart of Bali’ and now, you could first-handedly experience the warmth of the Indonesian people and the rich culture of Ubud here at Sthala.
Location: Kubu, Karangasem
The Savana Tianyar is one of the hidden spots in Bali that is unknown to many. Due to the secretive nature of this location, it offers total freedom for photographers to have an uninterrupted photo hunting. Access to the place is quite hard because there’s rarely any signs and you’ll need to drive for 3-hour from Denpasar, however, the staggering beauty of this place is definitely worth the long trip. Savana Tianyar offers a panoramic view of the vast grassland spreading across the foot of Mount Agung. During the dry season, this landscape will turn into a savanna with golden grasses while during the rainy season, the scenery will have a total transformation into a beautiful green lush.
Location: Pecatu, South Kuta
Thomas Beach is what your Bali travel dreams are made of; rolling waves covering a crystal-clear reef of aqua-blue water and stretches of soft white sand. This underrated slice of paradise in Uluwatu has been flying under the radar as a popular tourist spot. Thomas beach has a refreshing and relaxing atmosphere due to the fact that not many people come to this area. It would take one hour drive to get here from Kuta, Seminyak or Canggu.
