Designed for our less adventurous travellers, the Bali Comfort Experience combines three weeks of relaxation and community work. Although similar to the Bali experience program, its relaxed pace caters to the needs of families travelling with children and older travellers. It allows for interaction with locals and a chance to engage with Balinese culture with activities such as Bali Batik painting and visits to temples and traditional markets such as the Sukawati Art Market.

The program is divided up as follows: Week 1: Introduction to Bali, Week 2: Community Work and Week 3: A week of relaxation

This may also be combined with one of our other programs on offer such as the Bali Beach Holiday or the Yoga/Meditation week. Our community work programs leave an indelible impression on most participants and as such if you grow to empathize with and love the work done there, we offer you the opportunity for a one-week extension to community work on request.

Please note this trip may require you to purchase a cultural experience week with it. Click Here to find the relevant cultural experience week based on the country where this trip operates in.
