You might be wondering what to do in Bali? What are the most recommended activities & what are the fun things that you can do around the Island. Bali is well-known for being a paradise on earth, with beautiful white sand beaches, and exotic views, but best believe that is not all Bali could offer. There are tons of fun and "anti-mainstream" activities that you can try in Bali. Here are the top 5 that Jooi specifically curated for you.
Hidden Canyon Beji Guwang
You do not need to go to the US or Brazil to enjoy one of the greatest phenomena that nature could offer. Bali's very own hidden gem is here, even though this canyon is located in a rather busy area, this gem is pretty quiet. Since not so many people know about it, which makes this canyon even more special. Their deep and narrow valley with rocky slopes that are formed due to erosion, gives a very artistic effect on each wall of cliffs that flow from the Beji Guwang river. Though this activity is physically demanding since you need to hike without a proper trail, the view of Beji Guwang Canyon is rewarding.

Jamu is a traditional herbal medicine from Indonesia, what is so special about Jamu is that it is believed to cure and prevent a bunch of illnesses like sore throat, fever, and flu. Not only that, Herbs Walk offers other activities such as making a natural essential oil, sunblock, and hair oil. Located in the beautiful Ubud area, enjoy a pleasant walk around the paddy rice field while learning about the story of Indonesia's very own Jamu and herbal medicine.
Batik Painting Class
Batik, also known as "wax-resist dyeing," is a method in which a whole piece of fabric is dyed using a wax resist. It was developed in Java, Indonesia. Drawing the resist dots and lines using a spouted instrument called canting or printing the resist with a copper stamp called a cap, are the two methods used to create batik. In this specific activity you can learn to make your batik using canting, slowly painting a blank fabric with wax using canting, could be a very relaxing and rewarding experience that you can try, plus you can bring your finished product as a souvenir later.
