I created a blog with a desire to travel to tropical countries while I nomad my work at the same time. I’ve always shared travel trips on my Instagram but I never done a detailed travel guide on the blog. It takes a lot of time to process the photos, gather the information and put all things together accordingly. I’ve thought that after I submit my assessment in accounting at grad school, I will blog about my trip in Bali.
Although I’m a big fan of luxury travels (who doesn’t?) but let me just be honest here that as a startup founder, it’s important to have a “low-key lifestyle”. So, I looked for affordable villas and I worked on my budget on how much I can possibly spend for maximum 3-nights. It turns out a good plan.
I’ve never been to Legian beach in Bali so I Googled about this location and I learned there are cool cafés and beach bars that are open from early morning (8 am) until sunset (7 ish). Here you can find local Balinese food, beers, surfing board for rent, and yes even foot massage is available! I walked around Legian beach and I discovered the surfing school for only $3 for an hour. It’s a good deal.
If you’re on a budget trip like me and wondering what to do in Legian in Bali, here are my realistic advice.
Where To Eat In Legian, Bali?
There are many local restaurants in Legian and I went to Bale Udang Mang Engking Kuta. They have a variety of food menu and I particularly like the sea food bbq. The hospitality service is also friendly. I mean, you will not meet crabby people in Bali because in general, Indonesians are known for being friendly, down to earth and accommodating people.
If you’re looking for other local cafés here are few recommendations:
- Warung 24/7
- Blue Ocean Bali
- Seafood House
- Bawang Merah Beachfront Jimbarang (a bit far away but worth it)
- Kendi Kuning Restaurant
How to chill in Bali?
You don’t go to Bali to do you work. LOL It’s the best place to unwind, lazy around, eat the local food and have a peaceful time with your close friends or even alone. The Decks Bali property is gorgeous in person than you see online. It’s unpretentious, low-key setting and has a strong Balinese vibe. The pool area is the best place to enjoy the sunshine, read a book, or even do a selfie video for your Instagram. They also offer spa for room service. In short, to stay in The Decks Bali, they have every amenity you’d ever need. Well, except for in-rooming dining. They don’t offer food but you can order online and pay for GoJek or Grab to deliver it to your villa.
