If you are looking for a unique adventure in Bali, then you should go outside the comfort of the Bali hotels on the beach and start walking around the island. Because aside from the pristine white sand shores of the island, there are other wonderful attractions in Bali which you should never forget to visit – simple places which can give you the same excitement and relaxation that beach resorts do.
One ideal destination is the Bali Botanical Gardens. It is a place where learning and relaxing is done at the same time. Boasting a very extensive collection of plants for anyone to awe themselves with, this attraction teaches its visitors the use of these natural creations on the daily lives of the Balinese people.
The garden basically occupies a total land space of 157.5 hectares. It is a serene escape which is 1.2 km away from the heart of Ubud. It displays more than 2000 species of plants which includes ferns, orchids, cactuses, medicinal plants, ceremonial plants, roses and aquatic plants. Combined, all these create a very great spectacle perfect for photo captures.
In Bali Botanical Gardens, however, it is not only trees and plants which are the primary attractions. There are different kinds of fauna as well. People will surely feel the serenity as birds and butterflies flutter around them. There are also tree shrews jumping from trees to trees, as well as macaques.
Another attraction in Bali which you should leave your Bali hotel for is the Bali Bird Park.
