The Essential First-Time Bali Villa Holiday Guide

The Essential First-Time Bali Villa Holiday Guide

Many holidaymakers, when holidaying in Bali for the first time, choose Bali villas as their accommodation, and lots of them do so because they believe it will give them the maximum flexibility on their holiday and it may seem more like home from home than staying in a hotel. For example, in Bali villas, not having to get up at certain times for breakfast, and being able to have whatever you want for breakfast, can be extremely appealing.

It also has to be noted that on your first trip to Bali, and whilst staying in a Bali villa, you will notice there are many differences from home, and the more you are aware of these local differences, the better your holiday will be. So, here is our short guide to your first holiday in a Bali villa.

Best Time to Visit Bali

Bali has a tropical climate so there will be no need to pack cardigans, scarves, and gloves. However, it does have both a dry and rainy season, with the latter being between October and April, so our advice is to go to Bali between May and September if you do not wish to pack your umbrella.

Surprising New Potential Botox Benefits

Surprising New Potential Botox Benefits

For a number of years, we’ve praised Botox for allowing us to keep our youthful glow. This cosmetic injectable smooths out wrinkles and fine lines and lasts upwards of three months. It’s also a straightforward and painless procedure.

In recent years, we’ve also come to learn its value with migraines, muscle spasms, overactive bladder, and even excessive sweating. However, the latest research suggests it might be capable of much more.

Targeting Different Proteins

Harvard University and Broad Institute researchers have discovered that they can evolve the Botox toxin in a laboratory to target different proteins.

By creating selective proteins called proteases, they may be able to help with growth hormone regulation, neuroregeneration, and rampant inflammation reduction. These proteases could also assist with cytokine storm, which is a life-threatening immune response.

Baby Dies After Thrown from a Moving Car in Bali

A two-month-old baby girl, Arya Rose, has died after her mother, Nicole Stasio, 32, threw her out of a moving car in Bali. Nicole then jumped from the vehicle herself in an attempt to end her life.

The incident took place at a junction in Denpasar, Bali’s capital city. While Nicole had been staying in Bali, she is from San Francisco in the United States.

South Denpasar police chief Nyoman Wiararajaya said the baby was found less than a mile from the scene, alive, but severely injured. She was taken to Madara hospital in Bali but later died of her injuries. Nicole received treatment at the same hospital, but due to her depressive state, police were not able to interview her straight away.

According to police chief Wiararajaya, Nicole had travelled to Bali while pregnant back in July. She had, to date, fielded off any questions about her baby’s father. While her parents stayed with her in Bali for ten days, they later returned to California. Nicole remained in Bali until she gave birth in September.

Online Advertising for a Business in Bali

If you are considering starting a business, why not start it in another country such as Bali? Bali is an extremely popular tourist destination for Australian holidaymakers, who buy gifts, clothing and food while they are there. And of course, they need accommodation, so a business in any of these areas would surely be successful, especially if you hired an Australian digital agency to design your brand new website and give you advice on web design and SEO.

This would ensure that the website was attractive to and understandable by Australians who were researching for details of the things they could do and the places to see on their Bali holiday. Australian web designers are the best people to create a website to promote an overseas business to Australians, so your business would be in good hands and you would not need to pay very much – if anything – for any other form of advertising, such as professional digital marketing.

Sky High

‘Sky High’ Takes on Another Meaning

Air travel has long been a preferred method of getting from A to B, but while being sky high has its benefits, the cost is not one of them.

A recent increase in the price of domestic airfares to Bali has resulted in a significant local traveller downturn. According to the Tourism Department Chief AA Gede Yuniartha Petra, as told to Kompas.com, tourist traveller numbers are down by at least 12 percent. To put that into perspective, for every 100,000 travellers, 12,000 are choosing not to fly.

While many things can contribute to lower domestic traveller numbers, airfare prices are thought to be the leading cause. Yuniartha said that those who want to visit Bali are choosing an alternate, more affordable transport method to avoid the expensive airfares. However, the airfare prices are not thought to affect those traveling to Bali from overseas.

Bali Cuisines

5 Must-Try Bali Cuisines

If you have gone so far as to book your Bali villas accommodation, flights, and tourist activities, then why not check out the food you’re going to be eating? After all, if you are looking to experience a new culture, you can’t seek out food you eat every day. Instead, you need to eat what the locals do. Here are a few of the many stand-out dishes you will come across and consume in Bali.

Pisang Goreng

If you are a huge banana fan, then you will jump for joy when you find out that Balinese locals are too. After all, you can’t expect not to be when they grow in abundance! When you visit Bali, you will find that many varieties grow in the area, all of which can form a dish known as Pisang Goreng. Pisang Goreng is more of a dessert than a dinner, consisting of fried bananas, honey, flaked coconut, and vanilla ice cream.

Sate

Sate is the perfect Balinese snack and one you are bound to enjoy. Sate is chicken, mashed up then combined with an array of delicious and vibrant spices. It is then put on a lemongrass stick and barbecued. While it’s not going to fill you up, it can form part of a meal or as a snack as you make your way around the roadside markets.

Nasi Goreng

While you might be able to get Nasi Goreng at a takeaway restaurant in your neighbourhood, it’s possibly nothing like traditional Nasi Goreng in Bali. After settling into your Bali villas, why not take a trip to a local restaurant and try it out? Nasi Goreng is the same as Mie Goreng but Balinese use fried rice. Normally, it features noodles. Many Balinese eat Nasi Goreng at any time of the day – including for breakfast.

Bali outdoor furniture

What Will You Bring Back from Bali?

Most people enjoy the shopping opportunities in Bali when they go there for a holiday. They stock up on clothes and accessories for themselves and their friends. They may even buy jewellery or small items for their home.  But many people who visit Bali take the opportunity to buy nice Balinese furniture, in particular wicker outdoor furniture.

The only trouble is that it is much too large to bring home with them, which means they have to endure the hassle of going through the importation process themselves. If you have seen some lovely, must-have wicker or boat wood furniture there is no real need to become an importer; you could just visit one of the many furniture stores in Australia that specialise in Balinese alfresco furniture. There you’ll find furniture that is just like what you saw while on holidays.
