Hello! We are planning a trip to Bali and desperately need help. I feel like every attraction is one hour minimum from the next so am very lost on what is and is not feasible to do in a day.

Here is what I have so far, please tell me if this seems feasible. I am not sure if I have picked the best things to do together each day or if a different order would be better. Also let me know if I am missing any other attractions we should check out!

No mention of where you're travelling from (It really does help to add a little info to your profile).
So assuming you're travelling from somewhere nearby where you won't spend a day in a plane and won't suffer from jet-lag, that itinerary looks like an endurance competition...

If you are travelling from somewhere further away then you need to add time to acclimatise to the heat, time-zone and to allow for illness (not unusual to get a little under the weather on/after a long-haul), and it'll still feel like an endurance event...
All IMO.

Sorry about that! We are traveling from the US (Texas) but will be in Malaysia visiting family for a week before coming to Bali. We are pretty frequent travelers and have done similar jam packed itineraries before but I will definitely keep your suggestions in mind! We did just decide to add one more day to the trip so I will post the new tentative itinerary. Also, since we are coming from Texas and we frequent Pakistan and Dubai often, heat is nothing new to us.

What would you suggest taking out of the itinerary?
Thanks for the help!
