10 Unforgettable Experiences in Bali for your kids
Going to Bali alone, or with your friends? No problem. We adults can go anywhere we want when we want it. However, travelling with your kids is another story. You will need an entirely different plan to when you bring your kids along. Here are 10 kids-friendly activities to do in Bali with your kids. If you think that Bali is just about the massage and the beach, think again!
Enjoy the royal life in a villa
It is not very easy to stay in a villa in Singapore. However, you can easily do so in Bali where there are plenty of family-friendly villas available at a cost-effective price. Make your kids’ dream of becoming a prince/princess come true. Give them the life of royalty, being able to live in an exquisite palace, with maids and butlers catering to their every need, with a big infinity pool for them to swim amongst Bali’s natural blessings. The kids will have the entire space for themselves to roam around, without having to share it with other travellers. Having a private cook at the villa means that you don’t have to worry about the nutritious value of the meal. You can choose the dish from the menu, or ask them to prepare the meal according to your request.
Defy gravity atBounce Bali
If the Balinese waves can’t get your kids tired, they will surely burn off the never-ending energy at Bali’s first trampoline centre. The bounce in the centre is specifically designed to allow higher jumps than the home trampoline. If flipping forwards and backwards across the area is not enough, the kids can slam dunk in the basketball area or have fun in a dodgeball game.
Try horse riding atBali Equestrian Centre
The Bali Equestrian Centre offers 15 or 30 minutes casual pony rides for kids. If your kids are between three to six years old, the Tiny Tots Club is a great way for them to learn about horse riding and stable management. While the kids are having fun with the beautiful creatures, parents can dip in the pool or relax at the café.
Have fun at the beach
Of course, we can’t forget the beach. The kids can have a fun time playing with the sand, building castles, while you leisurely soak up Bali’s sunshine. Although swimming is not recommended, as the current is strong and the waves are big, you and the kids will still have endless fun. Let’s not forget Bali’s delicious seafood and stunning sunset.
Learn to surf
Surfing is an activity you should not miss in Bali. The Balinese waves are perfect for surfers, and if you or the kids don’t know how to surf, it’s never too late to take a class at one of the surfing schools. The trainers are experienced and know which waves are suitable for kids and first-timers.
Experience the thrills and spills atWaterbom
Voted the best waterpark in Asia, the second best in the world by TripAdvisor, Waterbom certainly lives up to its fame. From the classic lazy river to thrilling pipes, Waterbom promises a day full of excitement for the young and the old alike. 68% of the park is a garden, it is like an oasis in the middle of Kuta stretch. Another plus point is that you don’t have to carry cash around. Simply load up the barcode bracelet with money upon arrival to purchase any item in the park.
Learn and play the elephants
Let your kids be close to the gentle giants of Ubud’s Elephant Safari Parks and Lodge. They will have the opportunity to swim, ride and feed the elephants, a great chance for them to learn about the natural world. You will also have very knowledgeable caretakers as your personal guides.
Build courage atBali Treetop adventure park
Your little ones will have hands-on experiences with zipline, rope walk, obstacle courses and so on at Bali’s largest botanical garden. It’s truly a test of courage and a once in a lifetime experience.
Create art at Balinese craft classes
You will get to learn the secrets from the masters. There is a wide range of classes for the family to take, from silver making, batik fabric to fruit carvings. Through this, you will be able to understand the culture better.
Learn how to cook in Bali
Unleash the inner chef in your kids at Cubby House Kids Kitchen in Canggu Club. Here, the kids can express their creativity through food in a safe environment. While having fun, they can learn lifelong culinary skills as well. Who knows, your meals may never be the same again with the little chef at home.
From the beach to the jungle, your kids will surely have a great time in Bali. The island is more than just the beach and the massages, don’t you agree?
