Budget Bali

Beyond classic beach vibes and serene temples, Bali’s health kicks, simple living and hopping cultural scene make the Indonesian island a bucket-list bargain-bliss destination.


Small shrines dot Bali’s rice paddies



There’s nothing like a walk through the verdant rice fields of Ubud to make all right with the world. These unbelievably green ancient terraces spill down lush hillsides to rushing rivers below. As you wander along, you can hear the symphony of frogs, bugs and the constant gurgle of water coursing through channels. Start at daybreak, before it’s too hot, and take water and a snack.


Bali is an island that invites visitors to pay close attention to their wellbeing; Balinese massage is the perfect holiday prescription. The pampering needn’t cost a fortune. Bali’s spa spectrum is as broad as its beaches: treatments, often amid tropical flora or with your toes in the sand, can cost from as little as a few pounds. Try Sundari Day Spa in Kerobokan for an organic, high-class experience without the high price tag (; 10am– 10pm; massages from £15).
