With temples, rice terraces and wild volcanic beaches, East Bali is the ideal escape from the tourist crowd. Start your day with an authentic salt-making demonstration at the Kusamba Salt Mining Village. The traditional process of salt mining is one that has passed through generations. Your expert local guide will tell you all about its history and cultural significance before you make your way to the next stop, the Goa Lawah Temple. Built in traditional Balinese style and known for the large community of bats that call it home, it is one of the six holiest temples in Bali. Catch the locals at prayer here as they donate colorful offerings to the Hindu gods.

Next up is the Tenganan Ancient Village. As one of the best-preserved Balinese villages, it offers you a glimpse into how locals conduct their daily life. What's more, there are countless handicrafts on sale here, perfect for a dose of souvenir shopping. Continue onwards to Virgin Beach. Located near the tiny village of Karangasem, this is one of the most Insta-worthy spots in Bali. Spend your time here swimming, snorkeling and sunbathing, away from the bustle of the city.

Your last stop for the day is the Ujung Water Palace. Step back in time as you enter a palace that dates back 100 years. Home to the Balinese royal family, the palace features elaborate temples dotted between serene pools. Enjoy taking photographs of this beautiful site surrounded by rolling rice terraces and towering palm trees. You'll be finishing the day on a high for sure!
