Bali is renowned for its diverse landscape and rich culture. Offering a distinctive way to explore this paradise island is the VW Safari Bali Tour. Using a classic Volkswagen Safari Car, tourists are promised a unique journey to stunning destinations. With this tour, it’s not just about the destinations, but the memorable journey, the wind in your hair, and the stories shared along the way.
The charm of the Volkswagen Safari car in Bali dates back in time. Originally designed for military needs during World War II, the Volkswagen, known as the Volkswagen Type 181 globally and as “The Thing” in America, quickly gained popularity for its durability and simplicity. By the 1970s, the Indonesian government adopted these vehicles for official use due to their resilience on rugged terrains. In contemporary Bali, these vintage vehicles serve as a nostalgic mode of transportation for tours, blending history with tourism.
Embark on a scenic drive to Jatiluwih, known for its expansive rice terraces, followed by the enchanting Tanah Lot Temple by the sea. This journey is not just about the destinations but about enjoying the panoramic views, the discussions, and the laughter in a classic Volkswagen setting. From the Taman Ayun Temple to the Ulun Danu Beratan and the beautiful rice terraces, this tour combines nature’s beauty with Bali’s spiritual essence.
Ubud, the cultural heart of Bali, promises a rich blend of art, dance, and nature. As the Volkswagen roars into life, tourists are taken to the Batubulan Village for traditional Barong and Keris dances, followed by the majestic Tegenungan waterfall. The journey proceeds through Tegalalang’s picturesque rice terraces, culminating at the Ubud Monkey Forest, a haven for small monkeys.
The journey to the highlands of Kintamani offers breathtaking views of Mount Batur. En route, stop at the Tirta Empul Temple, known for its holy springs, before heading to the cool climates of Kintamani. As you dine with a view of the volcano and the adjoining Lake Batur, let the beauty sink in. The tour further introduces tourists to the intricacies of coffee production at a local plantation.
South Bali holds its own charm with pristine beaches and towering cliffs. From the water blow in Nusa Dua to the sandy stretches of Pandawa beach and the majestic Uluwatu Temple perched on a cliff, this tour encapsulates Bali’s coastal beauty.

Journeying towards eastern Bali, this tour centers around spirituality and nature.
