Denpasar ©
A trip to Denpasar takes visitors to the capital of Bali and the gateway to the island.
For shopping fun, head to Nacivet Art Gallery or Central Wave Painting. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Tirta Empul Temple and Mount Kawi. Change things up with these side-trips from Denpasar: Ubud (Saraswati Temple & Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary), Kuta (Kuta Beach - Bali & Balangan Beach) and Nusa Dua Beach (in Nusa Dua). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Blue Point Beach, stroll through Mason Elephant Park, don't miss a visit to Tanah Lot Temple, and explore the world behind art at Purpa Fine Art Gallery Seminyak.

For photos, maps, other places to visit, and tourist information, you can read our Denpasar tour site.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands to Denpasar is an approximately 20-hour flight. You'll lose 7 hours traveling from Amsterdam to Denpasar due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Amsterdam in June, you will find days in Denpasar are a bit warmer (35°C), and nights are much warmer (29°C). Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Fri) so you can drive to Ubud.
