    Where to go, what to do and what to wear – here are some inspirations for a remarkable year-end holiday in Bali.

    Like the blink of an eye, 2016 is coming to an end. If you need some ideas on where to go, what to do and what to wear to make your December in Bali a lot more fun, check out these tips and tricks that we have compiled just for you.

    Beah Day Out
    Where to go: During rainy December the beaches of Canggu are the ones to go to because you don’t have to descend hundreds of stairs to reach the beach. Berawa Beach and Echo Beach boast beautiful black sand beaches with waves perfect for surfing and swimming. You can also simply chill, read a book and feel the breeze. With some small cafes and colorful food stalls at the beach side and around the area, Canggu is the perfect spot for a relaxing year-end holiday.

    What to do: Before heading down to Echo Beach make a stop at Grocer & Grind and have their Avocado eggs, Coconut Bowl, or ‘The Morning After’ for breakfast. If the sun is shining too bright and you want to go to the beach later that day, you can spend time at IVY and find knick-knacks that represent the island life. This lifestyle shop has everything that will make you dream of having a house on the island, from summer sandals and hats to beach bags and sunglasses, and even cushions and cutlery. When you reach Echo Beach to enjoy the sunset, don’t forget to indulge in some fresh seafood at the seafood stands that are right at the heart of the beach.

    If you prefer Berawa Beach you can visit Peloton Supershop first. This vegan joint serves a fresh brunch menu with big portions and most of the ingredients are vegetable-based, which are surprisingly fulfilling and delicious! They surely know how to apply the superfood philosophy in their menu. While at the beach, Finn’s Beach Club is one of the options on where to spend your day. With a plunge pool located at the beachside, this beach club is the perfect spot to see the sunset from Berawa Beach. Don’t forget to nibble on their grand-size nachos that will make you crave for more.

    What to wear: The beach life is the simplest life! For the ladies, just put on a pair of Indosole sandals (which are made of old tires), throw on Milk the Goat’s swimwear, top it off with a kimono from the adorable Resilrivera, and grab your shades from GAIA (which has loads of cool eyewear brands from Henry Holland to Le Specs) and then you are all set! For the gentlemen, a wide selection of shorts, cotton shirts and surf accessories are available at Flow and Yonder.

    Uphill Explorer
    Where to go: Up in Bedugul, the attractions are not only limited to temples or restaurants with the view of the greenery. Pura Ulun Danu is still one of the most popular temples to visit, but Bedugul offers much more. During December the weather in Bedugul may get a bit colder, which will make the scenery even more beautiful because of the mist that makes the area seems mystical yet magnificent.

    What to do: The first site to see is of course Pura Ulan Danu. Standing on the side of Lake Bratan, this temple is where the Balinese hold ceremonies to honor their water. Lake Bratan itself remains popular as the lake of the Holy Mountain because of its abundant water. Spending a day or two in Bedugul would not leave you idle, as it is also home to Kebun Raya Bali (Bali Botanic Garden) where you can simply roll out a picnic mat and just hang out. The 50-hectare botanical garden displays numerous kinds of plants, half of them are rare enough outside of Indonesia and Asia. The collection also includes plants that are usually used as medicine and offerings.

    What to wear: To go the temple you need a decent outfit, which means no sleeveless T-shirts and shorts. Besides, the normal temperature in Bedugul is usually much colder than typical Bali weather, so it is better to use a proper cardigan or light jacket. While it is hard to find such clothes in Bali, Deus ex Machina has a collection of cool sweaters. You can simply drop by one of their stores around Kuta before you head up to Bedugul. Puravida has the solution for the ladies who want to dress like a chic island girl. Their collections are mainly made of delicate fabrics with designs that are respectful yet casual at the same time.

    Stroll The Town
    Where to go: There is no better option than Seminyak for a day or night out in town, because the area has new cafes, stores, hotels and hang out spots that open almost every month. Apart from that, Seminyak also has a night scene that is hard to beat for the partygoers.

    What to do: Expat Roasters is one of the newest places in the area with catchy typography that spells ‘EXPAT’ on their takeaway cups, which is quite inviting. Expat Roasters is the creation of international award-winning barista Shae Macnamara, making it one of the must-visit places for coffee lovers.

    Strolling around the hood you will pass by Seminyak Village, a shopping arcade in Seminyak that is home to renowned luxury boutiques like Farah Khan and MCM. They also have a shopping hall named Bonheur where you can find Aidan and Ice jewelry and skin products from L’Occitane. Pay a visit to the first floor and you will find Marketplace, another hall that presents Bali-based brands like Bali Towel, Em&Lu pajamas and The Wedding Shop.

    Now, let’s stroll along Kayu Aya Road and find the newly revamped Kim Soo that offers uniquely designed lamp and ceramic collections. They also have their own café for you to have an afternoon tea or a big meal. Are you up for a night out? La Favela will not let you down. Sitting in the heart of Oberoi in Seminyak, La Favela plays every genre of music seven days a week. Try their killer cocktails or simply grab a local beer and dance the night away!

    What to wear: Lulu Yasmine offers clothes made of silk, lace and other fabrics that are comfortable for a night and day out. Their design is simple yet elegant, making you look chic without trying too hard. The men’s collection from BIASA will also do the trick for a fashionable yet modest appearance. Their fall collection, which just launched last September, displays a number of playful shirts, kaftans, and pants with soft colors like tango orange and caramel brown.
