Come Travel To Bali With Me! Sign Up Here 🙂
If you’ve ever wanted to travel with me to a plant-based paradise, here is your chance!
I asked you guys on Instagram if you could go on a trip with me anywhere, where would you go, and an overwhelming number of you said a vegan group trip to Bali with me!
Bali has some of the world’s most beautiful beaches, rich culture, wildlife, and tropical plants, and is known for being incredibly vegan-friendly. Basically… it’s a paradise for us plant-based eaters. If you do want to bring your partner or a best friend who isn’t vegan, we’ll still welcome them with open arms as I want my followers to be as comfortable when it comes to traveling!I’ve wanted to visit Bali for so long and when Trovetrip, a trip planning company, reached out and asked if I could host a trip for my readers, followers, and subscribers, I said YES. So they’re helping me organizing it!
This travel company helped me select only ethical and animal-friendly tourism activities. We did research to ensure that the animals that we encounter are treated with compassion and living happy lives in their environment. #crueltyfreetravel
I know some of the tourism in Bali is unethical towards animals, and obviously, we will be avoiding that 100%. Here at the Edgy Veg, we are animal lovers and only support people who support animals.
7 DAYS IN BALI WITH THE EDGY VEG
This fall, (mark your calendars for Sept 30 – Oct 6), I’m organizing a trip with 8-20 of you to Bali with me, where we will explore the island together, I’ll lead workshops, and we’ll eat yummy vegan food in the most beautiful atmosphere.
Every time I meet you guys in real life I’m amazed at how beautiful, amazing and compassionate you all are! I basically have online friendships with so many of you through the power of YouTube and social media so I thought “how fun would it be to go on my dream vacation with a group of my online friends?”.
If you have any questions, feel free to read the FAQ down below and if your answer isn’t below, please reach out to me! I’ll answer all questions and also add the question/answer to the FAQ down below, as I’m sure others will also have the same question as you!

FAQ – Questions & Answers
1. How much is the trip and what’s included?
$1,595 USD or approx $2,080 CAD for my Candian babes (based on current exchange rate). So much is included! All the activities and trip inclusions (local guide, breakfasts, airport transfer, etc) is listed above 🙂
2. What meals are included?
All breakfasts are included and 3 lunches and 2 dinners are included! We have a lot of open times for you to explore and choose what you want to eat, and we wanted to offer travelers the flexibility for them to eat at other places and lower total costs down.
3. Do I have to pay for the trip in full now or can I save for it?
You only have to pay $399 (25%) as a down payment (which lets me know how many people are actually coming) and then you can totally save up for the rest of the trip.
4. What’s not included in the trip package?
Your flights aren’t included, so you’ll have to look for flights from your airport of choice to Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS) in Bali. If you arrive at the Airport outside the designated times to pick you up, you might have to pay for an airport transfer to the hotel. Alcohol isn’t included since I didn’t want to charge more if some people don’t drink or don’t want to drink. All breakfasts are included, as well as 3 lunches and 2 dinners, other meals aren’t included to lower price and flexibility for you to eat wherever, whenever. Travel insurance isn’t included, so I highly recommend looking into travel insurance that’s best suited for you. Many citizens can get a free VISA to visit Bali, but other citizens might have to pay for a visa, depending on your country. You might have to pay for a VISA to enter the country. Canadians, Americans and many more don’t need a visa as of updating this blog post. You will get a Visa on Arrival (VoA) stamp when you arrive and you’re allowed to stay up to 30 days.
5. What flights should I book? Any tips for finding the cheapest flight?
I suggest using Skyscanner or Google Flights for looking at the cheapest possible flights at your closest airports. You can set up Flight alerts on the websites to get notified of flights from your departure city! Look for flights that arrive at Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS) for Sept 30th between 8am and 5pm (for free airport transfer) and depart the same airport Oct 6th at any time. You can also choose to arrive at any point in Bali, if you want to go a little early or stay in Bali after our trip to do more that’s completely up to you!
6. Do I need a VISA to enter Bali?
Based on what I’ve researched, tourists from 160 countries can enter Indonesia for free for tourist purposes if your visit is within 30 days! Also, make sure your passport is valid! You don’t want to travel with an expired or close-to-expired passport.
7. What currency do they use in Bali?
The official currency of Indonesia is the Indonesian Rupiah.
8. How much cash should I bring for the trip?
Bali has very cheap prices which means your dollar is worth a lot. My friend said he spent as low as $19-40 a day for 1 day worth of meals and public transit. For $20 USD you can get approx 270,000 Indonesian Rupiah (IDR). It’s weird to think I can have 1 million IDR and it’s only approx $75 USD.
9. Can I share a room with my friend or partner?
Absolutely! We lowered prices for everyone by making each room a double occupancy! So just let me know and we can make sure you get assigned the same room as your friend or partner who is also coming on the trip!
10. If I want my own single room, how much extra would it be?
For your own single room, for the 6 nights, it’s an extra $400 and you can add this option in the “add-ons” section when confirming the trip!
11. Do I have downtime to explore on my own?
Absolutely! There is definitely downtime for you to explore or relax on your own!
12. Do I have to be vegan to join?
I actually got asked this question a few times! I know people are at different stages in their food journey and I do want to be inclusive for all to join this beautiful trip; you don’t have to be vegan but all proved meals will be vegan meals! So yes, you can also bring your non-vegan friend or partner! Perhaps this trip will inspire them to eat more plant-based 🙂
7-Day Bali Trip Itinerary
Day 1: Your local guide will meet you at the international arrival terminal and transfer you to Ubud where you will settle into your hotel. In the evening, enjoy a vegan welcome dinner where you will meet your fellow travellers and cheers to the fun-filled week to come!

Finally, hit up the Instagram famous “Bali Swing” and capture some incredible content!
After seeing the city, you will have the chance to meet the town’s cheekiest inhabitants, the macaque monkeys at the Sacred Monkey Forest.

Day 3: The moment you’ve all been waiting for is finally here! Join the Edgy Veg in cooking up some mouthwatering vegan, traditional Balinese dishes! Start off the day by handpicking vegan ingredients from one of the city’s many markets with the help of a local chef. Afterwards, you will head back to the kitchen to learn traditional Balinese cooking methods and craft authentic local flavours from scratch. Before you dive into these delish plates, learn from the food-photography pro herself on how to best take pictures of your food in your first workshop of the trip!
Enjoy the rest of the day at your leisure either lounging at your resort by the pool or exploring the city on your own.

Learn how to make a wide variety of vegan-friendly platters in the beautiful garden pavilion at a local beach resort. After, enjoy your last day soaking up the Balinese sun and hit the beach. Gather for one last group dinner to reminisce on all the highlights from your trip.
Afterward, you will visit the Batur Hot Springs, where you can soak up the natural minerals from the water while taking in the gorgeous views of the nearby volcano and Batur Lake. Sign up for an optional Balinese massage to relieve those legs after your long bike ride.
