Backyard Travel, the online boutique Tour Operator specializing in unique, insider tours throughout Asia, today announced a new tour ‘Bali Family Adventure’, with an action-packed itinerary that has something for the whole family.
Combining nature with culture and offering plenty of family activities in the great outdoors, this 11-day 10-night tour of Bali provides a holiday to remember. Aside from visiting all the must-see tourist attractions of Bali, such as volcanic Mt Batur, the ancient Uluwatu temple and lively Kuta beach, families have the chance to explore Balinese culture through hands-on workshops and spending time in rural communities.
Parents and children alike will enjoy the thrill of island hopping to Nusa Lembongan, snorkeling off the coral-filled coast of Amed and rafting down the Ayung River. Trips through the beautiful countryside of Ubud and along the Bali’s picturesque coastline of Candidasa showcase the spectacular beauty of the Island of the Gods, while visiting historic monuments and shrines allows travelers to delve into local mythology. This Bali family tour gives children the rare opportunity to experience farming life first-hand, make their own silver jewelry and plant rice the traditional way.
For fun on the beach, this comprehensive tour includes a surfing lesson in Kuta, plus beach barbecues, fresh seafood dinners by the seaside and plenty of free time to swim, snorkel and sunbathe. Thrilling live performances are also part of this Balinese tour, with a traditional kecak ‘fire dance’ demonstration at Uluwatu shrine and the large-scale music and acrobatic show put on by Devdan Theatre – an unforgettable tourthrough the Indonesian archipelago’s diverse dance culture.
“Bali is a fantastic family destination,” says General Manager of Backyard Travel Maeve Nolan. “It’s got great food, spectacular scenery and loads of action to keep younger travelers entertained. This particular tour makes the most of Bali’s extensive family offerings – things like surf lessons and rafting trips – as well as imparting new and unusual Balinese skills, such as jewelry making, creating offerings from palm leaves and distilling arak, the local brew.”
