I’m doing my first solo travel to Bali in March for 10 days

Where are places people suggest to visit and check out? So far I have seminyak, kuta and ubud on my list.

Definitely want to see the monkey forest!

Accommodation wise, looking for anything - hostels, hotels, villas. Is it better to book when you get there or pre book? I’d like to stay places where it’s easy to meet people as well :)

Also - tips for meeting people would be great! I have a fun personality but I’m shy to approach people.

Little about me - I’m 26, single, lives an active lifestyle and enjoys having a good time. I like going out and trying new restaurants/bars, and I am a bit of an adrenaline junky when it comes to speed etc.

Let me know if you’re traveling Bali in March too!

Bali is very popular with female tourists. One reason is the many gigolos called Kuta Cowboys.

This TP forum has a section for countries in this part of Asia:

Be careful with people wanting to meet up with you. For your safety meet with them in a location like a restaurant but NOT at your hotel room door.

You may meet some other tourists on tours. Also just walking around.

Have fun.

There are quite a few YouTube Vlogs on Bali.
Mostly by the 'selfie stick / media wannabes' but amongst all the vacuous self congratulatory drivel there are some very interesting vlogs giving real useful info.

Attention, usually in march is Nyepi the Balinese new year, 2019 from march 7. 6am to march 8. 6am nobody is allowed on the street or beach you have to stay in your accommodation! No transportation on or to Bali! But the days before and after are interesting. Accommodations will provide food but often only fried rice or fried noodles, select you accommodation very careful for this time (pool and food).
I prefer to find my accommodation when there, but for the first night I would book a room in Kuta (only taxi from this airport, Kuta is the closest place, to some hotels you could even walk), the area between Poppies1 and Poppies2 has many popular and cheap drinking and eating places. Seminyak is more upmarket, but a easy walk along the beach.
The Kuta to Ubud area has now a bus system but it is not very useful for the tourist, and the traffic in this area is a disaster. Perama has a useful shuttle bus system from Kuta (Legian street 39 between the 2 Poppies) to many places in Bali, no need to book online.

I do like Padangbai, northeast of Kuta (ferry to Lombok), has a good snorkeling spot a short walk north and a nice white sand beach a short walk south, and because of a important temple also quite often some ceremonies, good diving and decent restaurants as well.

Bali is a beautiful place for solo traveling. All the singles mainly love to travel solo in Bali. Thanks for this post missdeannaxox
