This was the longest I have spent time in Bali – 5 days with family, 8 days alone, and 7 days with a friend.
We stayed in a 3-bd villa in Seminyak, behind the main street and in the middle of it all. The self-contained villa has absolutely everything and we cooked almost every night including a seafood night after a trek to Jimbaran seafood market. Due to the extreme heat, the seafood market is indoor in a complete darkness with slim ray of lights from the entrances. With less than A$20 we fed seven people with lobsters, crabs, and pipis.
