So it just makes senses to rent one of Ubud villas then. This is where you can find such a raw beauty of the nature you may not get in other places. Of course, Bali is perfect for a romantic getaway. However, it is also perfect for self-discovery trip where your main purpose is to empty your mind and release all negativity from your body and mind. Even though offering more calming vibes than other areas in Bali, Ubud still have many popular places for hanging out if you’d like to go. There are many options of fine restaurants, cafes, as well as yoga classes and art workshops.  

Why rent Ubud villas?

Ubud is popular place in Bali but is tends to be less crowded than Legian, Kuta, or Seminyak. Thus, lots of people in Ubud are those who like enjoying some peace without being bothered by too much noise. However, It doesn’t mean you will feel like alienated when staying at Ubud. Instead, you will feel like close to nature and find some peace from it. So here are other reasons why renting a villa in Ubud for holiday is a good idea:

  • Whetehr you are travelling solo or in group, Ubud will always welcome you with its amazing views originally from nature. Even though less crowded of tourists, Ubud still provide everything you need for a perfect retreat such as ATM centers, diners, shopping center, and even bars and clubs. Therefore, you can get everything you need by staying in Ubud.
  • Most villas in Ubud are situated in more secluded areas. In return, you will be closer to the nature if you stay at one of the villas. There are villas located near Ayung River, in the middle of rice paddies, and even in the middle of the jungle. Instead of making you feel isolated, staying at one of those villas will only give you peaceful vibes and atmosphere.  During your stay at villa, you can stroll down to truly enjoy the views of the rice paddies.
  • Ubud is relatively safe area to stay in Bali. You can choose to rent villas around Jalan Bisma or Jalan Pangosekan. Those give you access to lots of places you may want to go during your stay such as salon, spas, yoga class, restaurants, cafes, etc. Your destinations are mainly within walking distance. Therefore, you don’t need to travel too long to reach them.
  • Another benefit of staying at one of the villas in Ubud is that most of them is designed in unique architecture. You can find regular villa with modern or minimalist look. However, it is more fun to stay at villa with unique design and décor. For example, you can rent a villa located in the middle of rice paddies completed with village-like architecture. However, you still get modern and functional furniture and appliances inside.

How Bean Bags Can Help You Enjoy at the Beach?

If you are traveling to the beaches, you will some people are laying down or sitting on the big comfort and somehow seem to be the soapy seats. Those are called as the bean bags that we should admit not all of the places have them to be used as the item that can help people relaxing on the beach.

The bean bags themselves are also can be used at home as the alternative to the conventional chairs.

But to be honest, I think that the first time I have been seen the bean bags was at the beach and I am still wondering until now that how it will be possible to enjoy on it while not getting burned by the sun since its material seems to be possible for that.

How bean bags can help you enjoy at the beach

Later on until today, people keep on using them all at the beaches no matter how hot the sun is, they are even sunbathing on it.

How come the bean bags make you enjoy your trip to the beach even more?

Now, when I was thinking about visiting the beach, I have never been thinking that the seat can be this important. I mean, you can actually sit on the sand beaches while not getting yourself into the dirt. You will simply need to swipe off the sands on your pants and move away.

It doesn’t matter if the beach has no seats at all, right? But, not until you can sit on the bean bag that is actually so comfortable while you can really sit base on the position you are willing to do.

Using the bean bag meaning that most of your body or almost half of it will be covered by its material since it is designed so where sometimes I think that I will be bounced out because of its design.

By included it with the expanded polystyrene (EPS), using it will make your body being relaxed because it is like the Styrofoam which is extruded polystyrene.

The next thing that will make you enjoy the beach on bean bag even more is that you can freely to uses it whether to sit or sleep. When the comfortable material met with the position you can freely choose, how can’t it be the good news for your enjoyment at the beach with beautiful view of nature?!

Anyway, you can also find more benefits of bean bag for your medical condition. It is said that the bean bag can even prevent various of health problems.

Knowing this, I think it is even better to encourage people to use the bean bags either at the beach or even inside the house because of its health support’s benefits. No wonder people are recommending to have a bean bag even at the office.

There is also a businessman that is using the bean bags as the main alternative to chairs and offering the restaurant menus where the visitors can eat and drink on the bean bags at the beach. Sounds like the worth trying thing to do right?

That’s the short version of how bean bags can make you enjoy your times at the beach even more beautiful.

How to Choose Your Best Place to Stay in Bali

Hey everyone, have you been in Bali before? If you did, then my first and main question is actually; where did you stay and how much you have been paid for that each night?

I should have introduced this post more kindly, but frankly, that question is important for me and may most of us since we are struggling to save money everyday and possible to be spend in only a night at Bali.

Think about this; How much you can pay per day for your accommodation cost and the stay itself will gives you many things? Don’t just pay for the place where you can sleep, you should also pay for a place where you can enjoy while staying in your trip at Bali.

So that, I think that it will really important for many of travellers to know and choose among best places to stay in Bali that will be covering the best location as well as the stay itself.

*How I will choose my best place to stay in Bali?

How to choose the best place to stay in Bali

As said on above, the best place I am going to refers will be about the location and the accommodation to rent. You may are getting the best stay ever in Bali, but the location can’t do more as what you have been expected.

So does the location where you are possible to be at the interesting spot, but the accommodation itself is ruining the whole luxury of your staying.

So, why not looking for the best place that is covering both important purposes when you are traveling in Bali since it will be one of the easier thing to do?

Here are what you are looking for to make your stay in Bali the best thing you have ever been experienced:

Choose the location base of the attractions and available destinations you are required

That is my first way to choose the best place in Bali. When determining about the location to stay, I am actually considering many things especially about what the advantages will I get of the location?

To answer that, you can see many reviews and articles about the location. Or you can also find the information about the disadvantages of the location itself.

For example, temporarily living around Kuta Beach may the first thing you have in mind. The location is so popular and the beach is also beautiful as you think. But then, I will tell you not to do so since last week I have been there, there are too much plastic wastes at the beach and I should admitted that the beach is the dirty one.

So, I may will telling you to move away of it to Seminyak or Canggu since the beaches are also beautiful and the wastes aren’t as much as Kuta Beach and experiencing the tranquility living is easy since the surround will not as crowd as Kuta beach.

There are various accommodation you can choose, compare them all!

I am getting bored when asking people where will you stay when you are in Bali. It is because most of the answers are the same. People are keep on telling me that “I’m staying in the …….. hotel.”

As if no other places you can choose but a hotel room. I don’t hate it. But, we are actually have the other options that I am afraid have not been thought of before.

Since Bali is one of the popular destination in the world, investors are also from everywhere to do businesses. So, accommodation business is also vary. There are many types of it.

You will know and hear that in Bali, there are unique beachfront condos, luxury designed villas, surely the various offers of hotel rooms, affordable hostels, and many more with various styles and prices.

So, you’d better not only using the “hotel” query when you are looking for the accommodation on Google since you have more options than you think.

After that, you can simply do some researches while comparing all of the various interesting accommodation and see which offer will be possible for you.

Now, what’s next?

Since you have been informed about how you can choose the best location to stay and which type of accommodation that will be what you have been looking for, the next thing you should know is surely where and what the accommodation that will be my top first recommendation.

What I am going to recommending you is optional where I don’t have a single right to force you to do or follow as what I have said. But, I will recommending you the one that hopefully the best place you ca stay in Bali.

Even, that will be a thing I will do as well.

So, in answering about the next thing to do after knowing the both 2 points above is that, I am happily to tell you that you can try to rent and stay in the Seminyak villas where the cozy living is awaiting for you, the stays are variously styled and designed, the amenities can help you enjoy the leisure time even more, the surround area is safe and interesting to explore, the beach is clean, the offers are vary and affordable and many more advantages you can get.

So, simply finds one among the villas that is located at Seminyak area, rather than finding hotel rooms around Kuta Beach. You can also heading to Canggu if Seminyak is not really your thing even if I have been really recommended it the best way I can do.

So, that will be my ways to find the best place to stay in Bali and hope that will also helps you in doing the same thing to lift up your traveling moments to the higher level.

Still lots of people believe that travelling is a luxury. They believe that travelling is always expensive and, unsafe, and full of dangers.

Myths about travel you should know

There are still lots of people around the world who are too scared to travel to new places due to many myths around them that they have already believed.

If travelling is too dangerous, then why lots of people are in for solo travelling? If travelling is way too expensive, why people with low income can travel to their dream places? So here are some travel myths you should know and should not believe:

What You Will Need When Camping Out There?

How much do you like the outdoor activity just like camping out there as a way to spend your holidays or your spare time? If you are the one that are considering yourself as an avid fan of it, then you may have known your own items and gears that should be brought every time you will be at outdoor.

But, if you are an amateur one who are just started out to experience whether camping can be your good thing to do or not, then you may are confusing about which should be prepared and then taken them all right before leaving the house.

And that’s what I am trying to do now. I will do my best to tell you about what you will need when you have decided to camping out there for sometime.

Things you will need for camping out there

Things you will need when you are camping out there by your own

I do love camping but since I am not doing it that much, I do also have experiences to say the least. Through my camping trips that I have been experienced before, now I know which are the important things and useful that helped me out doing various activities as well as enjoy the times that were passing by.

Those things can be the must-stuffs to bring for me but one or two of them may are not apply for you since different people have their own different needs.

But as I have said before that I will do my best, I will also make the lists for the gears and tools that can be used for many of us.

1. Combination of a raincoat and the waterproof backpack

You must be realised that a raincoat will be useful in case the weather is drastically changing and the water is started falling down. Before, I was camping without any information about the weather at all but if you can ensure yourself about it and decided not to brings the raincoat, then feel free to do that.

While the waterproof backpack itself won’t only useful in rain but sometime when you are suddenly put the backpack itself on the wet ground.

So does when you are using it and the night is fall, the cold air can crawl into the bag and get all the stuffs to be cooled. But I am sure that it won’t really an issue if you have your own waterproof backpack.

If only I could choose one which will be recommended, I think the waterproof backpack is on my packing list rather than a raincoat. But surely that you can also bring them both together when you are camping out there.

2. It’s cold out there, so bring your warmer clothes

From the pick of your hair down to your toes, you have to think about how you will covering yourself when you are resting out there.

You may need the hoodie, hat, jacket or the long-sleeved T-shirts, trousers and pants if you will be longer on the camping site, extra socks, and more that you think will make you warmer especially when you are resting in the night or when the winter is coming.

You can also considering to bring the blanket if that will possible for you. But, make sure that all the above items are fit into the backpack you are going to bring and lightweight enough to take.

3. Lighting and fire reources

Lighting and fire sources are not only the tools to help you make the surround brighter especially in the night. But they can also be the survival gears where the flashlight can send a S.O.S signal and the fire can make you safe from the wild animal that may come and get you.

Today, there have been the matches or lighters that can still be lighting up even though the air is so thin and cold. So, you’d better looking for that. The flashlights are also vary. There are many of them that can even be used for the emergency condition.

4. Bring the hammock for yourself

Do you know what the hammock is?

It is an interesting camping item that is used as where you are going to spend your time in a rest or sleep. You can rest on it either you will lay your body or sit on it.

Hammock is setup between the stands and it is easy to bring where you can put it into your backpack. If you are camping by yourself or alone, I would like to recommending you to buy the single parachute hammock if you have not got one.

5. Snacks, snacks and snacks plus the mineral water in the bottle and sachets of coffee

Foods and a hot drinks can be the great match in a cold of outdoor. By bringing a snacks, you will not only able to make your stomach a bit full but somehow it is a great idea while enjoying the view.

So does the coffee where you won’t even need to ask for what is that, right?

Anyway, knowing about the things that will be brought when camping out there is also a part of how you will experience the more safer and comfortable camping. So, you’d better think about that two before, carefully.

Important Skills You Should Have to Travel around the World

Travelling to many different places is not only exciting but also challenging. You see, not everyone is confident to do it because they think they lack of some skills.

Important and useful skills you should have to travel around the world

Well, it is not entirely true anyway.

You may have no problem to travel around the world if you have companions such as friends, families or lovers. However, the problem arises when you travel solo.

You need to face every problem on your own without someone to rely on.

Of course, each individual has their own in solving problems in various situation. You don’t have to follow what others do to solve a problem because maybe it is more effective when you use your own way.

The most important thing is to have the right skill.

Travel around the world smoothly with the right skills

There are many skills that every individual can possess. It can come off naturally but it can also be learnt.

For example, if you don’t have skill in language, you can star learning by joining a language club or pay for formal language course. So, there is nothing like ‘impossible’ skills to have if you are willing to learn and improve.

The skills for travelling will be strengthen the more experiences you gain. Here are important skills to help you during your travel.

1. Deal with adaptability

Adaptability can come as natural traits for some people. However, it can be a skill that is hard to achieve for others.

Travelling around the world means you constantly move from one place to another, you are not only landing in new places but also meeting new people in the process.

New environment can make your body and mind feel anxious. It can be shown through sleep disorder or inability to eat properly during your travel.

However, you can always build your skills of adaptability the more you travel. When you have this skill, you won’t be afraid or paranoid of the unknown.

2. Mastering the language, at least the common ones

The next skill is language. You see, language is like a medium for you to communicate with others. Of course, there is gestures and all aside from verbal communication.

However, language barrier sometime can be the most problems experienced by travellers.

To travel around the world, you should have at least language skill in English. Even if you are not that fluent, you should learn the basic things.

It can help you to communicate with strangers properly. It is even better if you learn some languages if you like travel a lot. It can help you to interact more with the locals.

You won’t need to be afraid if you got lost since you can always ask to the locals for direction.

3. Do you know how to protect yourself?

Another important skill you should have to travel around the world is negotiation and self-defense.

You see, there might be a situation that put you in uncomfortable or dangerous position. If you have negotiation skill, you can save yourself from more serious troubles.

Meanwhile, self-defense is important just in case you encounter violence during your trip to protect yourself especially if you travel solo a lot.

How to Find the Studio in Bali for Your Business Photography Projects

The interesting thing about photography is that, I think that it is one of the best hobby in the world where you are getting paid for doing what your passion is.

Photography as the paid hobby that can gives you income and takes you anywhere in the world

Photographing will take you anywhere around the world since your skills of capturing the different and unique point of views can be used by many people around the globe. So do when you are making the photography as a business if you are in Bali with such international market–you can build your own studio here and start developing your own empire.

The demand of professional and high quality images in Bali are increasingly high especially for those who are in business lane. The owners of the villas, hotels, and more accommodations, restaurants and bars, cafes and night clubs, tourist destinations and attractions, special events, concerts, and many more are requiring the great images that can make all of the events be more interested and then visited.

So do the business products and services for the international market that have the different point of view for the visual communication such photography.

And you must have been known that many of the photographers are need the studio to create their masterpieces so you can only get the professional and high quality images, but all of the photography projects can be the art for your business or event.

That’s why many of photographers are glad when they have got their own studio and even if they don’t, there will always the studio in Bali that can be used or rented to finish all of the projects that are ordered by their clients.

This can be the cheap and high quality studio in Bali for every of your professional photography projects

Le Studio has been known and popular among the Indonesian and foreigner’s businessmen and travellers. It is a studio for photography in Bali that can be rented foe even per hour where the service is quiet a rare thing you can get in Bali.

I am not recommending this studio for no reason.

how i will find the studio in Bali for business photography projects?

If you are the photographers that are requiring the professional camera and tools that can help you in a photo studio, then the studio in Bali I have just talked about can give you those.

So do the professional staffs if you will need them.

If you want to talk about the price since the first time I am telling you this is one of the cheap one in Bali, then you can actually go to the official site right away and see some of the costs you will need to pay when using the studio.

You can even rent the available camera if you will need one or the lenses, etc. Simply pay your visit to this studio bali directly at Jl. Plawa next to Seminyak’s main street or you can see the offers on its official site to save more of your times.

What if you are a businessman and don’t know how to photograph but will likely to ask the photographers and asking them to shoot your products or services inside the studio?

Now, comes the interesting part where you can not only rent the studio itself but you are also really possible to hire the photographers or asking them directly to give their hands and start dealing with your professional business’s images.

Even you can also decided to bring your own photographer that you have been hired somewhere else and start using the studio with all of the facilities with its charge is per hourly as I have told you before.

There’s nothing to be afraid of about those since I believe that I can really guarantee you that even though the percentage is not 100%. But, 95% and more, you can really trust me in that.

As a businessman, your business is really need a professional images ever since they are contributing in putting the interests in the eyes of the potential customers.

Having the high quality and professional images for your products is actually the start of seeing your business in another high level, moreover if you business value itself is really high.

Look, what if you’ve got hotel rooms and need them all to be marketed? Don’t you think that all of the rooms or at least their brochure will be seen tempting so people want to reserve them? Or what of you have got the restaurant business? I bet that you will show your foods and drinks to the customers in more tasteful images right?

That’s how the professional’s product images are working. They are contributing to change the human’s mind and you are free to make your business to be seen as good as the others.

And to have it all, you will have to rent the studio in Bali for yourself or the photographers you have hired before if he or she has not been got their own studio. This can be the great investment for your future business where the useful products or services will be met with the perfect images.

Does this worth the money?

There is now other ways but analysing it yourself right now or getting up and heading to the studio Bali on above address. If you will need to ensure yourself, visit the studio and start the talk included with the problems you may have got so you may can be helped as well especially when all of them will be related to the professional and high quality images.
