Bali is not all about all night hang out and parties! After you enjoy the fun for a couple of days, it’s always a good idea to switch a slight of the routine so you can experience the whole Bali has to offer. If you are back to your hotel at dawn, now try to go during the first light of the day. For some, it may not be easy to make it happen. You need someone or something as a motivation to get up from the bed and start the day early. Here, we have listed down 5 interesting morning activities that can motivate you to chase the morning light.
Above the Could
A morning trekking to Mount Batur is a rewarding morning activity for outdoor enthusiasts. Located in central part of Bali, in Bangli Regency, the mountain is at 1,717 meters high above the sea level. The average time needed to reach the peak is about 2-3 hours hike walk at a normal pace. It means that you need to go to bed early or take a long nap and start the hike around 3AM to be able to witness the morning glory.
Heartwarming Morning Vibe
If you are more into people and cultural interest, then local markets are the place to go. It vibrates the daily life of locals and their culture – getting the fresh products from surrounding areas, hearing the bargaining talk and joke in local Balinese language, tasting a different kind of local foods. It can be an interesting and exciting experience. Two busy morning market that you can visit are Ubud Market and Badung Market. Come as early as possible as those mornings market will close around 7AM before they transform into an art market during the day.
Greet the Dolphins
Going north to Lovina, Singaraja, a morning encounter with the dolphins is a must-do when you are in the area. Early in the morning, traditional jukung boats are lining at the beach, ready to take you about 1 kilometre offshore. You may not be able to touch the dolphins in their natural habitat. Yet, the experience of catch-me-if-you-can truly shows you how happy they are in the free ocean.
Walk Through Rice Paddies
A morning walk at the Bali’s scenic green rice field gives you an uplifting experience amidst the beauty of the mother of earth. As you walk through the morning haze, feel the wet and cold morning dew in your feet, as well as the warmth of the sun as it appears from the hill. Some of the best places to do this morning walk are Tegalalang, Jatiluwih or Sidemen Village.
Breakfast at the Pool
It is totally fine even if you are not an early riser and prefer to stay on the bed until the sun has risen. After all, it’s about enjoying the best possible day to start a day in Bali with good mood. So, how about a floating breakfast at the pool? You can’t say ‘NO’ to a morning pleasure while nurturing your body with healthy nutrition for the rest of the day. Check with your accommodation reception if they are serving the floating breakfast service. Selamat Pagi!
