There are a great host of things to see, experience and do in Bali from raving till the cows come home in Kuta or cafe-hopping in Seminyak, but perhaps one of the more popular draws among tourists these days is the adrenaline pumping, Bali Swing.
Located in Ubud, Bali, the Bali Swing is fairly new playground that boasts a number of giant swings—some going up to as high as 78 metres above ground—that not only makes for one heck of a heart-pumping joyride, but gives visitors a spectacular view of the forest and coursing river directly below it. But fret not if you’re not a fan of heights because there are also giant overhanging pods modelled after bird nests that you can sit and admire the view in just the same.
For the thrill seekers or those who simply want to relish in the playground’s tropical vibes, Bali Swing is definitely something you need to include in your itinerary for your next Bali getaway.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT BALI SWING
Bali Swing houses numerous jungle swings ranging from 10m, 15m, 20m and 78m above ground. A treat for adrenaline junkies, each swing comes with its own unique thrill factor so depending on how ballsy you are, choose your swing wisely.
But regardless of the swing you choose, you will still be guaranteed a pretty spectacular view unlike any other—one that overlooks the river, tropical greenery and waterfall.
If you’re not a fan of heights but still want a beautiful photo to take away from the experience, consider one of their many ‘Hanging Nests’ that are scattered around the playground.
Wedged between two enormous palm trees, these nest-like structures serve as look-out points but also make for good spots for photos. A ladder is positioned below it allowing guests to climb onto it and is eventually removed to make it seem—in photos—as if you were dangling in midair among the tall trees.
Other attractions include the Butterfly Garden, Helicopter, Heart-shaped Rock and Huge Stone—all of which come with a magnificent view overlooking the valley as well as the canyon and waterfall.
The location of Bali Swing is very far inward and the only possible way in would be through booking a driver or a taxi. But courtesy to the folks at Bali Swing, there are a number of hassle-free options you can consider.
