I am divorced (20yrs) 60 year old male living in and loving Nicaragua. I have decided to travel some while my health allows. I am allowing myself about 5 months to see Indonesia and the region. I am not on a backpacker budget but not on a high dollar one either. I LOVE the coast and have always lived along the coast in SC and now Nicaragua. Going inland for a few days is ok. If you were planning a visit of this nature, what would be your itinerary? Love good food, cold beer, hot women (:-)..could not resist! Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Buck
Hi Buck, not sure I you're still traveling. I recently spent time in Bali and loved it! You can stay inland In Ubud - I enjoyed The Alaya hotel right in the heart of it all - about $150 US dollars a night (for a standard room) Right outside of Ubud is a fabulous spot called The Swasti Eco cottages - $70/ night. This one is on An organic farm - great food. Great , quaint lodging. Can rent Bikes , motorbikes across the street. As far as restaurants, I enjoyed Clear Cafe, Petani restaurant and I heard the Jazz Cafe And Casa Luna are great.
I also spent time at the Elephant Safari park in Taro Which is something I highly recommend if you Enjoy that kind of thing.
I spent time at Nusa Dua (beach) which I loved. Kuta is more touristy. I heard Seminyak beach is nice too.
