Susanne Blidborg,, of Stockholm, Sweden is the second submission in the Bali Dream Holiday Contest.

Write before the end of April and you have a chance of winning 2 tickets on Singapore Airlines, 7 nights at the Fours Seasons Private Estates Bali at Jimbaran Bay, tours and transfers from Bali Discovery Tours, rafting and cycling excursions from Sobek, luxurious spa treatments from Mandara Spa, a helicopter tour from Air Bali, and Cooking Lessons from Bumbu Bali/Rumah Bali.

Here's Susanne Bildborg's entry:


The first sensation of island of the gods - the smell of champaka and frangipaniflowers.

The smiling ladies dressed in their nice batiks and embroidered blouses.

The flowers, the trees and the warm blue ocean, the culture and the myths! Truly paradise on earth!

After arrival you should head straight for Ubud and indulge yourself in massage, spas, sights and sounds at the market, go for bird walking and rafting at daytime. In the evening go for shopping at the nice boutique shops in the center and eat typical Balinese and Indonesian specialities at beautiful establishments as the Dirty Ducks Diner.

To explore the islands of the Gods is a must, see the small picturesque villages around Ubud and up north, Bedugul Botanical gardens, the market and the mysterious and beautiful Pura Ulun Danu with a relaxing canoe trip on the lake Beratan.

Onwards to Singaraja you should take a right turn along the coast before seeing Singaraja, and first visit the villages still making gamelan instruments, see their fascinating old temples with exquisite carvings and old traditions. After this return to Singaraja to see the sights of the city, its museums and the old harbour.

Lovina beach and a dolphin safari tour, relax at a beach resort and enjoy the black sandy beach and the sunset - maybe with a glass of Hatten wine.

Turn east to the wild north coast and national parks.

Interesting nature walks in Bali Barat National Park and a snorkeling/diving tour of Menjangan gives a good picture on how nature once was unspoilt. On the way down south go in the direction of Pupuan and the famous rice paddies in perfectly built terraces.

On the way west visit the handicraft villages of Mas and Celuk, see the bursting markets of the area. See the old court and quartiers of Klungkung and make a relaxing stop at Candi Dasa. Tenganan weaving village and the sights from Iseh on the way from Tenganan to Besakih temple. Get entranced by the rituals and the atmosphere. Enjoy the games and traditions in one of the Puras that welcomes guests for dinner arrangements.

After a roundtrip like this the perfect place to unwind is Lembongan Island at one of its resorts, three or four nights.

Before leaving on the late flights back to your country - do not miss the sandy and delicious seafood dinners at Jimbaran beach when the sun is setting!
