Be sure to visit some of the highlights of Bali during your holiday.

See the real Bali on a downhill bike tour, swim with dolphins, visit nearby towns, temples and markets. 

Ask your villa housekeeper to help with tour arrangements. The advantage of organised tours like these (even though it may cost slightly more) is that the driver is experienced in going to these places and will take care of all the details.
