I'm flying to Jakarta in March 2013 and am then planing to go to Bali for 2 weeks. Will anybody be there during that time? Where do you recommend me to stay as a solo traveller? I'd appreciate some recommendations about hostels, hotels, homestays etc. I havent planned yet what to see and I'm not even going to I would love to visit some buddhist temple, meditation places, see the nature, go snorkeling/diving, and party
There is allways people on Bali.
On the 13th of March it is Nyepi ( day of silence ) which is a day lost unless you like sitting in your hotel all day
Party is mostly in the south part.
The biggest Buddist Temple is Vihara , near Banjar in the Lovina area. Yhey have a program for meditation,
Snorkeling is nice in the Pemuteran area Menjangan island in the northwest.
Have a nice time and feel welcome to ask more questions.
Bali will always be filled with tourists from time to time.
No worries about being a solo traveller in Bali; Lots of popular choices for the accomodation.
Besides culture, you can have fun time tasting delicious food too!
Have a good plan and if you may need some more details about Jakarta, feel free to contact me.
