10 Days In Bali Itinerary – The Perfect Guide

In the last year Bali has been at the forefront of everyones minds. So here’s our 10 day Bali itinerary to help you plan exactly where to go in Bali.

How To Get Around Bali

Getting around Bali couldn’t be easier. There are generally 3 options:


We always choose to rent scooters, which start at around 50,000 IDR per day, and explore ourselves. 

However be sure to read up on our Renting A Scooter In Bali guide beforehand!

Most accommodations will allow you to store your big bags with them, even after checkout.

So if you’re comfortable on two wheels, and looking for somewhere to rent scooters from, you can book a trusted scooter rental here.


Another option is to rent a driver, which is pretty popular for day trips around Bali, and they start at around 500,000 IDR per day (8 hours).

You can opt for standard 5 seater vans, or larger minibuses for bigger groups.

This is a great option for those looking to design their own itinerary. Simply jump in, tell you driver exactly where you wish to go, and he’ll navigate the most efficient route.

If you’re looking for for a reliable service, you can book a private car with a driver for the day here.


Some of the best days out we’ve had in Bali have been on private tours.

For those short on time, or that prefer everything to be organised for them, there are some awesome tours on Get Your Guide available to book in advance.

There’s even a Bali: Full-Day Instagram Highlights Tour, for those looking to photograph its most recognisable locations.

From sunrise hikes, to waterfall treks and island hopping, there’s plenty to keep you busy on the bustling island!

Best Time To Visit Bali

The best time to visit Bali is between April and October, the island’s dry season.

This is when you can enjoy all the island has to offer, from beach days to trekking, with generally the perfect weather conditions.

For cheaper prices and fewer crowds, November to March is the best time. (Excluding Christmas and New Year.)

However, this is the wet season and it can be pretty hot and humid with some heavy down pours.

Remember, this is just a guide, so you may want to mix it up and add/subtract different attractions.
