One of the countries i have always been fascinated by is Bali. There are so many friends who have been here and keep talking about how beautiful the place is. Apart from all the lovely sights to see, and activities, this one couple who went there for their Honeymoon mentioned this place called Seminyak which is apparently the shopping hub and spa capital of Bali. You can get here from Kuta or Legion, both of which are a short drive away.
It is famous for the high end places, restaurants and shopping arenas.It is also home to some of the finest restaurants and bars. There is a certain sense of eliteness and sophistication here. Not to forget the amazing beach which is fairly quiet and serene. It is one of the few places that has gone through a transformation that is so visible and so impressive.
The must see places in Seminyak according to my friends are the Seminyak Beach and Petitenget Beach. Endless stretches of beautiful beach going as far as the eye can see. Oh let us not forget the accomodation options in Seminyak. There are a few quaint comfortable Seminyak Bali villas that you should stay at when visiting this part of the world. make sure to plan your day out such that you can catch the sunrise or sunset from the beaches. Ideal for nature and photography enthusiasts, the place also offers quitee a few other sight seeing venues and adventure activities.
Remember I mentioned Spa, so this friend of mine went on and on about the two spas she visited. One was the Jari Menari spa and other is Glo. Offering a wide range of services, these spas she says relaxes the body mind and soul, ideal options to unwind when on a holiday. She also managed to do bungee jumping at AJ Hackett Bungy. the best in the world, run by the famous New Zealand based AJ Hackett group. Oh how can I not mention some of the goodies they brought back for me from Bali.. :-))
Well, now that I know where to stay and what to do, am quite eager to plan a visit..
