Most of the must-go places certainly aren't in Kuta. Arrange a driver and get up EARLY - I'd suggest a long days trip around the many temples, rice terraces and skirt the villages around the volcano. There is so much to do and see in Bali - it rewards time. over 8 years ago
Hi, Bali is small island but exploring Bali in two days, you will be in rush....
If you take a car with driver, I would suggest you to split your itinerary as follows
Day 1, West Bali; Jatiluwih, Beratan Lake, Taman Ayun, Alas Kedaton, Tanah Lot, Ubud and back to hotel.
Day 2, East Bali; Kertagosa, Goa Lawah Temple, Besakih, Kintamani, Tampak Siring, Ceking.
Those trips will take about 10-12 hours each day, so you really need to get up early and back to Kuta at night
You miss Uluwatu and south part of Bali, but it is close to Kuta, if you insist to have it and you have 3-4 hrs extra, before leaving Bali, you can do it in the morning and ask the driver to drop you in the airport 2 hrs before your flight departure.

The best way to experience Bali is on a bike. But the route would greatly depend on your interests. I'd say skip the touristic Bukit Peninsula (South), nothing really interesting there unless you're in for surfing. Go directly to Ubud and spend a day there exploring the paddy fields, art galleries and culture in general. Then you can go up to the Vulcano area... lots of nice temples on the way and beautiful scenics. In my opinion, Bali is not strong on beaches... but I might be a little spoiled by other countries. I'm sure opinions would vary. over 8 years ago
