Traveling in Bali with Kids: 8 Fun Things to Do

We, the adults, have our own specific reasons to go to Bali. Some of us want to learn the Balinese culture, some others are on the quest to find inner peace, and Elizabeth Gilbert visits Bali to finish her Eat, Pray, Love.

But kids, the purest human being on Earth, are different. All they want is to have fun. They want to yell, to laugh, and to enjoy the now. So when you’re traveling in Bali with your kids, finding fun things to do is a must. The good news is there are many fun things to do in Bali, such as:

Sliding the Waterbom Bali


Your kids will be thrilled when you take them to Waterbom Bali. They can do many fun things at the waterpark, from getting catapulted 9 meters high into the sky to sliding the steepest water slide in Asia (if they are at least 120 cm tall already).

Waterbom Bali is situated on Jalan Kartika Plaza, Kuta. It is open every day from 9 am to 6 pm. A single day pass is only IDR327,000. But if one day is not enough for your kids, you can book a two-day pass for IDR527,000.

Sweating at Bounce Bali Trampoline Centre

Kids love bouncing up and down the trampoline. So they will be jubilant and loss the track of time when you take them to Bounce Bali Trampoline Centre at Finns Recreation Club, Canggu. It is safe even for kids because Bounce Bali has equipped the trampolines with strong frames and springs as well as 2-inch thick safety pads.

For an hour jumping pass, you only have to pay IDR135,000. But if you need more hours, you can book the day pass (IDR500,000 for one day and IDR380,000 for kids aged 3-12 years old.)

Striking the pins at Strike Bowling


Bowling is one of the most interesting games to play with your family. You can teach your kids many things and values while playing bowling, such as self-determination, discipline, strategy, perseverance, etc.

To strike the pins at Strike Bowling, you only have to pay IDR80,000 per hour (shoes are included). The bowling alley is situated on Jalan Pantai Berawa Canggu, Tibubeneng, Kuta Utara. It is open from 10 am to 9 pm every day.

Another fun thing to do with your kids while in Bali is visiting Monkey Forest in the heart of Ubud. There are two things which make this place interesting. First, it is covered with tall trees and thick canopy. Secondly, it is a sacred sanctuary of long-tailed monkeys which have used to the presence of the human.

Open daily, Monkey Forest accepts visitors from 8.30 am to 5.30 pm. The entrance fee is IDR80,000 for adults and IDR60,000 for children. It won’t be hard at all to find Monkey Forest since it is situated on Jalan Monkey Forest, Ubud, only about fifteen minutes away from the Royal Palace of Ubud.

Hiking Tegallalang rice terraces will be an unforgettable experience for your kids. They will always remember the adventure for the rest of their lives—when you take them walking through the dykes; watching the farmers weed the rice fields; encountering, for the first time in their lives, the water buffalo.

It’s not hard to spot Tegallalang terraces. If you’re traveling from the southern part of Bali, Tegallalang will be around half an hour ride from Ubud. The legendary paddy-field will be on your right.

Watching Devdan Show


Four times a week, Bali Nusa Dua Theatre presents a 90-minutes theatrical show of “Devdan: Treasure of the Archipelago.” Your kids will love the story as it features two kids who “escape” from their mundane, boring tour to embrace a surrealist adventure throughout the Indonesian archipelago.

The ticket rate varies between IDR520,000 and IDR1,560,000 per (adult) person. However, the admission for kids only half that of the adults. Devdan Show is held on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 7.30 pm to 9 pm.

Sea walking with Seawalker Tour Sanur

Too early to take them scuba diving? Why don’t you take your kids sea walking? In Sanur, Seawalker Tour Sanur offers a memorable experience of half-an-hour walking on the seabed without complicated diving apparatus. Instead, you only have to wear a special helmet which looks like that of the astronauts. You’re gonna feel like diving and walking on the moon simultaneously.

Seawalker has several packages whose price range from IDR955,000 to IDR1,415,000 depending on the amenities. To get more information you can visit their office at Puri Santrian, Sanur.

So are you ready to create happy memories with your kids?
