SAFEST PLACES TO STAY IN BALI
Like all places around the world, there are safer places and less safe places. The likes of Canggu and Kuta are very popular with tourists. They can also be places where tourists are targeted for pickpocketing. Ubud is in the heart of Bali and is known for being authentic and one of the more religious areas. Because of this, it is a very safe place even though it's very busy.
Our personal favourite places are Sidemen and Uluwatu. Sidemen is a beautiful, quiet and rural part of Bali which is full of natural beauty. Being rural actually makes it very safe as the people here typically live simple lives. They are so happy to see tourists enjoying their home. Uluwatu is our ideal place to live in Bali. It's not as rural as Sidemen, and it's where all the best beaches are. It's still a popular place for tourists, but most (including the locals) are surfers and give off that relaxed surfer vibe.
This section is very much personal preference, and the best way for you to find your favourite part of Bali is to explore as much as possible. The beach clubs, bars and restaurants are great, but make sure to get around the island as much as can because it's an amazing place.
BALI FOR SOLO FEMALE TRAVELLERS
Is Bali safe to travel for solo female travellers? In short, the answer is still yes! Danielle and I are not single female travellers, but we know plenty all living their best Bali life. We know people who have visited Bali on vacation and others who live there full-time. If you are looking to travel to Bali as a solo female then you do not need to worry. The main thing we would advise is to be extra mindful of walking around late at night by yourself. Everything else is the same as above.
