Put down your mobile and shove your work clothes into a pile on the other side of the room: You’ve got annual leave, and you know exactly where you want to spend it. Don’t waste time ruminating over ancient cathedrals or sports teams; instead, book your ticket to the “Island of the Gods” and prepare yourself for sunshine, rainforests and enough natural beauty to put your Insta feed into a coma. lastminute.co.nz has the cheap flights to Bali you need so you can snag the holiday you deserve.
You’ll probably arrive at Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS), and once your feet are on the ground, it’s game on. Get around via bus or taxi, or really live it up with a rental car.
If you’re on one of the flights to Bali that lands in the morning, stop thinking and start doing. Bali is known for its beaches, so head for the coastline and start snapping pics that will make all your friends jealous.
Turning up in the afternoon? This island is known for its spas, so treat yo’self to a massage and a creambath (relax, it’s just a scalp massage that involves lots of conditioner). If you really want to give your mum something to worry about, get one of those aquatic pedicures where hungry fish nibble the dead skin off your feet. It sounds gross. Maybe it is gross. But it sure feels good.
If you’re landing in the evenings, you don’t have to go straight to Bali accommodation. Watch the sun go down from the shore of one of the many beaches, then start the time-honoured ritual of eating your way through town. We recommend ayam tatu (steamed chicken) and the local wine to start.
Cheap Bali flights mean you have more money to spend on cool stuff, like renting snorkelling or scuba gear to go diving. The water is warm and beautifully clear, giving you a great view of reefs, wrecks and the local sea life. Maybe you’ll find Dory!
There’s no time like now to book Bali holiday packages from lastminute.co.nz. Seriously—why are you still on the computer? Tell your boss you’ll be back later and get a move on: you’ve got some gods to walk amongst.
