Everyone wants to live in Canggu these days: it’s hip, gorgeous, exciting, and still reasonably priced. Canggu may be the holy land for individuals seeking sun, enjoyment, and a decent spot to base themselves in Southeast Asia. Canggu is home to chic restaurants and cafes, laid-back beach bars, and a welcoming nomad and expat community staying in their tropical Canggu Bali villa rentals. 

On the other hand, if you’re looking for a “genuine Balinese experience,” whatever that means, this isn’t the place to go. 

However, There’s something for everyone in Canggu, from spending a morning sipping coffee in a light-filled cafe to viewing a spectacular sunset from one of the many beach clubs. Heres how a day in Canggu looks like.

Even though Ubud is the true yoga hub of Bali, Canggu has plenty of opportunities to practice your sun salutations. Yoga shalas or classes are available at many lodging establishments, and there are also various yoga studios.

We were fortunate in that our hotel (The Chillhouse Bali) provided a complimentary yoga class twice daily. Yoga sessions ranged from relaxing meditation to strenuous vinyasa movements. We can definitely recommend the Chillhouse if you’re seeking for a location to stay with a diverse selection of yoga possibilities.

Not everyday have to be spent for exploring beaches, trying out new restaurants, or partying in beach clubs. Spare some days just lounging in the private pool of your villa Canggu; cooling down from Bali’s heat, reading books, or just enjoying fresh tropical fruits. While hotels might be lovely and comfortable, they rarely have a lot of space. One of the reasons we love a villa rentals in Canggu, Bali, whenever we we can is because of this benefit. We can all be in the same place for late-night conversation or lingering over breakfast that we’ve cooked together if we stay in a vacation rental.

In Canggu, one thing is impossible to avoid: surfing. Canggu’s beaches are among Bali’s most well-known (and crowded) surf locations. There are tanned individuals everywhere, racing about with surfboards or riding around on scooters with their boards.

If you want to learn to surf, Canggu is a fantastic place to do so. There are as many surf schools and camps in Canggu as there are sand on the beach. The Chillhouse Bali is a great option for you (where we ourselves also stayed). There are surf lessons available with highly qualified instructors.

Canggu has a southwesterly orientation. As a result, Canggu’s beaches are ideal for watching spectacular sunsets. To enjoy it, you may either rest in the sand or find a spot in one of the many bars.

Last but not least, if you enjoy partying, Canggu is the place to be. There is no longer a weekday when there isn’t a party or an event taking place someplace. We’re not big party people, but we couldn’t pass up the chance to check out Canggu’s nightlife.

The Old Man’s, directly on Batu Bolong beach, is one of the hotspots. During the day, it’s really cozy here. Live music is performed early in the evening, and a DJ is occasionally present. The famed Sunday parties in Deus are also packed. Local musicians frequently perform here, and you can dance all night.

Hiking is fun and all but not really when you are lost somewhere in the deep end of the forest. With how tall and dense the forest is, it can be hard to navigate yourself and find your way back to safe place. Hiking alone increases the risk of getting lost especially if you are unfamiliar with the place. Hence, it is a must to develop skills to navigate yourself. It is also essential to always bring the right tools to help you find your way during a hike. here are useful tips to help you navigating yourself when lost during a hike:

jungle trekking, group of hikers backpackers walking together outdoors in the forest, close up of feet, hiking shoes

Navigate your route even before the hike

It is possible today to see the forest from above before plunging into it. You can get aerial overview of the forest you are going to explore in advance by using Google Earth. Hence, you will get to see trails, rivers, roads, and everything else that forms a perimeter. This is a good preparation so you can plan how to orient yourself back.

Print a paper map

Of course, you can always use the more modern version of map you can easily download from your phone. However, it is best to not rely solely on those modern technology. However, you can always have good navigation app and handheld GPS to compliment your toolkit to stay oriented throughout your hiking journey. If you are not familiar with the apps, learn those prior your hiking dates. 

Find your way during the hike 

What you have prepared in advance such as studying the route, printing paper map, downloading navigation app, and bringing a compass can help a lot in orienting yourself. However, there is always possibility for you to get lost during your hike. What to do when it happens is stay calm. Then look for trail blazes marked at eye level on rocks, trees, or posts on major trails. 

Don’t bend your map

When you see the map, don’t bend them because it increase the risk of you reading it wrong. Also, it is best to keep checking your route through the map instead of waiting until you get lost somewhere. This way, you know you stay on the right routes. It allows you to orient yourself frequently. You can check the map while having a drink of water. 

Stop moving

When you are lost, stop moving around and stay as calm as possible. It can be difficult  when you know you are lost in unfamiliar place with no one to help you. However, moving around will only add the panic and you may get deeper into unfamiliar area. Try to think clearly and remember the route. 

Observe your surroundings thoroughly and look for any signs such as foot scrapes, trail blazes, etc. Then, have a solid plan before moving again. It is also recommended to follow water downhill if you don’t have any alternative to find your way. Water downhill and downstream leads to coast or lakes, where humans tend to be.

Dive cruises without experience and careful planning may disappoint you. Komodo Island, one of the favorite destinations for diving lovers, is located in West Nusa Tenggara. As you might expect, guests frequently ask this question, and it’s a difficult one to answer. You may not realize it, but Komodo is a year-round diving destination. Offering different spots to explore during each “diving season” and month. Komodo island has diverse fauna to encounter and changing sea conditions.

Plan Your Diving Season Komodo Vacation

The dry season lasts from April to October, and the monsoon or wet season lasts from November to March. But don’t be fooled by the phrase “monsoon”. The mainland of Flores receives a lot of rain, although it’s rare to experience more than a few afternoons of rain on a voyage out on a boat around the islands. This is true even during the wettest months of January and February, which are two of the finest months for wildlife, avoiding the throng, and exploring the deep south of Komodo National Park.

komodo national park underwater

So when is the best time to visit Komodo? It all depends on what you want to get out of your trip to Komodo. Is it Manta Rays that you’re after? Are you a Macro aficionado? Do you wish to get away from the crowds? Have the clearest visibility or the warmest water? Or go diving/snorkeling on the less-visited south Komodo and Rinca islands? Let’s break the diving season down for you month by month so you can begin planning your Komodo diving vacation.

January

As previously said, this is a technically rainy season, so expect some rain and varying visibility/water temperature. However, this is an excellent time to see Manta Rays, and many dive locations will be completely empty. Dive spots in the south of Rinca/Komodo, which are only accessible by liveaboard, are also available. These sites are substantially different from the Central and Northern sites in terms of macro and topography.

February

The wettest month in Komodo! But as with January, it’s a great time to visit the less-visited southern locations. Where there are plenty of Manta Rays and the chance of seeing other divers is at its lowest.

March

The beginning of the transition from wet to dry season, which can mean that the entire National Park is yours to explore on a longer trip. Visibility and water temperature are unpredictably variable, but now is an excellent time to fully explore Komodo, observe Manta Rays, and avoid crowds.

April

The dry season has begun, but the windy season has yet to begin. Resulting in calm waters and an increase in the number of tourists. Divers’ attention is increasingly drawn to the well-known Central and Northern dive locations. It’s still a fantastic time to observe Manta Rays, and the water temperature and visibility may be spectacular.

May

The dry season is in full swing, the windy season has begun. The Central and Northern sections of Komodo begin to offer some of the best diving conditions in the world. In the Central area, the number of Manta sightings begins to decline. The water temperature rises and the food supply for them decreases. However, with good visibility, vivid colors, and a plethora of marine life, the coral’s vitality is starting to show.

June & July

Incredible diving conditions in the Central and Northern zones. The visibility of 30+ meters, and water temperatures of 29-30 degrees Fahrenheit. Manta Ray sightings are rare and mainly include juveniles as the Manta Rays migrate south of Komodo in search of cold, plankton-rich seas. The number of divers begins to rise drastically, resulting in overcrowding at popular dive locations during peak hours. It’s also worth noting that it’s Komodo Dragon breeding season right now… During this period, the Dragons are less visible.

August

Divers are still focusing on the Central and Northern zones, and the conditions are still outstanding. Outside of the busiest hours for day trip divers, there is plenty of Pelagic action at places like Castle Rock and The Cauldron.

September

The peak tourist season has passed. The winds have died down, and the attention remains on Central and Northern Komodo. This is a terrific time to visit because the diving season conditions are excellent without the crowds.

October

Manta rays are beginning to return to Central Komodo, the dive spots are peaceful, and the seas are calm. After a busy high season, this is the start of traveler favorite Komodo diving season, and we hesitantly begin to explore a little further south.

November

This is usually the hottest month here and the start of the seasonal transition. The exploration to the south has begun, and practically all of Komodo National Park is open to visitors. This is also the time of year when we begin to see whales pass by as we travel.

December

The beginning of the wet season, but rainfall in the islands is minimal. Finally, the southern sites are opening up with increased temperature and visibility. The Central area still offers some great diving but the exposed Northern sites usually become less diveable with very low visibility and rough seas. The first two weeks of December are often very quiet so a great time to visit and lose the crowds.

Assessing the strength of your mental focus

It is important to figure out your strength of mental focus first before trying any efforts to improve it. If you find it easy to stay alert, set goals and break tasks up into smaller parts and know when to take short breaks, then your mental focus works just fine. But if you find yourself easily daydreaming, unable to tune out distractions, or losing track of your progress easily, then you need to work on more on your mental focus.

Every individual may have different kind of distraction that diverse them from their focus. With distractions, it is easy to lose concentration, making your productivity decreased significantly. Hence, find out major distractions that hold you back from being focused. Then, remove or minimize them as much as possible. If you tend to get distracted by noise, choose more quiet place to do your task. 

Avoid multitasking and limit your focus

Multitasking is not for everyone. Hence, it is important that you know whether or not multitasking is for you. If it is not, it is best to know what approach that work with your focus and concentration the best. Imagine your focus as your attention. Where you put your attention at will help you to see the thing clearly. Hence, it is best to give full attention to the top of your priority instead of juggling multiple tasks at once. 

Practice mindfulness

Budget Liveaboard, Make Your Dream Come True

Think about dragons! Consider the gin-clear waves that lap against the pink beaches. Imagine snorkeling across coral reefs surrounded by schools of fish of all shapes, sizes, and colors. Consider traveling through deep blue oceans and islands that look like they belong on the set of Jurassic Park.

Komodo has some of the world’s top diving and snorkeling. Unfortunately, you can’t snorkel right off the beach in Komodo.

To see Komodo’s underwater treasures, you’ll need to join a guided snorkeling or diving cruise. It’s simple to charter a boat in Labuan Bajo, and it’s not as pricey as you may assume.

Divers in Komodo have the opportunity to see a variety of large marine creatures, including manta rays, sharks, and dolphins, to mention a few. The dive sites vary a lot: there are pinnacles as well as sandy slopes, and there are lots of drift dives as well as swim-against-the-current dives.

We feel that chartering your own boat for an overnight excursion provides excellent value and an unforgettable experience. The majority of tours in Labuan Bajo are oriented toward divers. Many of these diving cruises include snorkeling, the majority of the reefs are only accessible to divers, and you’ll most likely pay the same fee as divers.

How to get to Komodo

The most popular and highly recommended method to come to Komodo is to fly to Labuan Bajo. Book a budget liveaboard and you may visit Komodo National Park at your leisure and sleep in some incredible locations on the boat. This way, you may go for a sunrise trek, a night dive, or simply watch the sunset from your boat’s deck.

There’s also the possibility of doing a liveaboard from Bali. Before heading to Komodo, you’ll do some diving in the Lombok region. The Bali liveaboard trip to Komodo will be amazing.
