Bali has long been a destination high on my must-visit list. Upon arriving to the Institute of Code, it was immediately apparent that lush greenery would be a common sight with every new turn - each spot seemingly more Instagramable than the last. I knew that bringing extra memory cards with me while exploring would become an absolute must.

The island undoubtedly has so much beauty and offers a variety of photo-worthy moments. I wanted to share some of the adventures I’ve had this first week of exploring while hopefully providing some insight and noteworthy spots worth visiting.
The Institute of Code is located 15 minutes outside of Canggu. The café culture in this area is incredibly bright and convivial.
Nude Canggu is a fantastic café positioned a little outside the hustle and bustle of the main street. They offer both an air-conditioned seating room (which you will definitely crave at some point) and an open-air area. The food is also ridiculously good - I would high recommend the raw zucchini pasta and pitaya bowl!
Crate Café is a really great spot to grab breakfast… specifically avocado toast! Avo toast is kind of a big thing here apparently, and it seems as though each place is coming up with their own innovative twist on it. Crate is one of the more popular spots in Canggu, so be prepared to wait up to 15 minutes for a table.
The Slow is one of those great spots that you can do exactly that; move slow. It’s the perfect spot to get work done while sipping on a coconut banana smoothie. It’s an incredibly stylish restaurant that’s also attached to a hotel. The large open space will you make you feel as if you have it to yourself.
La Laguna is the perfect spot to grab a drink while watching the sunset. The scenery will make you feel as though you’ve transported to some gypsy inspired faraway land. Equally as vibrant as the scenery, are the drinks - you can enjoy an infused dragonfruit cocktail as you watch the sun set over the Canggu beach.
Old Man’s is one of the most popular spots in Canggu. The ‘Old Man’s’ mural has become arguably one of the most identifiable photo spots in all of Bali. It’s also a venue that celebrates local artists with live entertainment nights every week. Whether you want you to sip on a cold drink while watching the sunset - or enjoy a bit of reggae… Old Man’s is your place!
