CANGGU & BERAWA GUIDE – BALI
Bali’s Best Super Mario Kart Track
What’s the haps in Canggu?
As one of the main hipster surf spots on Bali suitable for beginners, it is the epicenter of social activity for the island’s surf community and beyond.
It’s a haven for those seeking transcendental experiences and total flexibility. Even though there were only a few surf hostels and rice fields to visit a decade ago, it is now home to those who have left their 9-to-5 jobs in search of a more balanced work-life.
Canggu has quickly become Bali’s busiest tourist and expat destination, offering the best of (almost) all worlds. Even though there is plenty of exciting nightlife, the vibe is laidback. Canggu caters to all types of people, from budget travelers and digital nomads to families and those seeking both a lively nightlife and a quieter, more spiritual experience at yoga studios and vegetarian eateries.
Attempts to pass as a native have proven futile, no matter how much you attempt to conceal your foreign appearance. The locals will label you a “bule” regardless of your intentions. No matter how skillfully you dress in a sarong or speak Bahasa, you will always stand out as a tourist.
It’s true that con artists and kleptomaniacs may be found in every part of the world. You shouldn’t have any problems in any part of Bali so long as you’re watchful with your belongings, alert to your environment, and rockin’ some serious swag.
