So Bali for Christmas, huh?

Soooo….it looks as though I’m going to be spending Christmas 2017 in Bali! I might even treat myself if I can afford it and spend a few days in a fancy hotel or something crazy! Most of what I’ve read about spending Christmas in Bali has been primarily aimed at families.

On Trip Advisor, I’ve discovered others that have done the same thing which has made me feel more confident. It looks as though I could post something on the website to see if anyone else would be around at the same time. It would be nice to have some company!


Seminyak and Ubud are definitely places I want to visit. The Besakih Temple also looks amazing. I was thinking about going from Singapore overland to Bali. It can be done I believe (Rat & Dragon blog). It means I could really have a tour of Indonesia – stopping off in Jakarta etc. I think it would only take about 2-3 days to do the complete journey, so stopping off at places like Bandung and Surabaya will be a great way to break it up. I think I’ll have to be conscious of how much time I’m spending in each place – there’s so much to see in the world!

I think I’ll have about 2 weeks to travel from Singapore to Bali and back again. I might overland it down and then fly back up depending on how much it will cost to fly. I would only do it one way anyway.

I wouldn’t mind seeing Borobodur either! But not sure whether I’d be able to do everything! Sigh…more research needed I think!

  1. Hello!!

    Great so meet another overland enthusiast! Singapore to Bali is totally doable overland and you’ll see so much more and get a much more ‘local’ experience travelling this way. You can continue on all the way to East Timor if you want something really adventurous – in fact we travelled all the way from East Timor from London overland (and then on to Sydney) so the world is your oyster 🙂

    The only thing that’s a little tricky is buying tickets for the Pelni ferry at the Singapore end, cause you actually have to take the 1 hour boat to Batam Island early and hope they have the class you want left. We arrived 12 hours before departure and it was fine.

    Good luck, have fun and take care,
    Nic & Sax (aka Rat & Dragon)
