Bali is an increasingly popular travel destination and for good reason. Aside from the bustling beach clubs offering breathtaking views, you’ll be able to engage in adrenaline-pumping activities like trekking, white-water rafting and surfing and get in touch with Bali’s cultural side through their cultural performances and glorious temples.

The best part? Bali isn’t that expensive either. If you’re on a tight budget, do you know that you can still find highly-rated aesthetic hotels located in or near central areas in Bali for under USD $50?

From these hotels, you can actually walk out and be within walking distance to a myriad of cafes, restaurants, shops, spas and more, in Seminyak, Canggu, Ubud, Kuta, Sanur and Nusa Dua!

And yes, our carefully curated list are all clean, value-for-money, convenient, stylish and highly rated by former guests. You are welcome!
