I think Bali is everyone’s creative place – whether just for the feed, for your style photos or just to spark something inside your right brain. Here are my recommendations aside from the island tours and what I wore in these places.
There are so many trendy cafe’s and restaurants in Bali, especially in Seminyak area, where you can see it left and right. My top pick and prolly the most Instagrammed one is Motel Mexicola, which made me feel like I’m in the tropical oasis of Mexico! There are visuals of art, religion and women lighted by neons. Don’t forget to visit the second floor and to visit int he afternoon. 😉
What to wear: casual. it is kinda hot in this place so while you can wear sparkly ones like below, make sure it is still comfortable!
Address: Motel Mexicola, Jalan Kayu Jati No. 9X, Kabupaten Badung, Bali 80361, Indonesia
Other places: Nalu Bowls, Cafe Organic, The Bistrot, Sea Circus, Ling Ling’s, Sushimi,
Very popular whether in Kuta or Seminyak, Bali has pretty beach clubs! My top pick is Potato Head Beach Club, which has very modern interiors and just the perfect spot for that sunset viewing.
What to wear: bikini or your coolest summer outfit
Address: Potato Head Beach Club, alan Petitenget No.51B, Kerobokan Kelod, Kuta Utara, Kerobokan Kelod, Kuta Utara, Kabupaten Badung, Bali 80361, Indonesia
Other places: La Favela, La Plancha
Traditional Cafe’s & Warung (Food)
Ubud, Kuta and Tabanan are great places for traditional Balinese food and restaurant interiors. Our Uber-turned-tour guide @Enno3170 whom we got the chance to talk and interview when were on our second day recommended these places which his tourists loved. The menu here are traditional, affordable yet of quality. Plus the interiors and traditional Balinese music, especially in Warung Dedari where we had lunch before going to Ubud. I highly recommend these places which are not yet so popular in social media but deserves the attention!
What to wear: Balinese inspired florals.

I told myself that whenever I would go to Bali, I would visit these temples, not just for Instagram but for spiritual purposes as well. Uluwatu was one of the main recommendations but Enno could only take us to these two which we can reach in a day: Ulun Danu and Tanah Lot. Pura Ulun Danu is a beautiful complex
