Bali is without a doubt filled with an endless collection of seascapes, landscapes and beautiful landmarks. It is a short airplane ride away from Singapore (for just less than 3 hours), hence a popular beach-getaway-destination for those who are visiting Singapore.
Our guide here covers all trendy things to do in Bali, as well as some Instagram-worthy, iconic and picturesque sites on the island. You'll get to experience the Balinese way of life and find yourself immersed in the beauty of Bali.
#1 Have a "Floating Breakfast"
Drinks by the pool is always a great idea. Breakfast by the pool? Even better. How about having your breakfast in the pool?

Start your day in style and indulge yourself to an unforgettable floating breakfast at the comfort of your private villa.
