Does anyone have recommendations for activities to do with a 16 month old? Sure, it'd be nice to hike mountains that involve 2am wake up times, scuba off the coast of Nusa Dua and ride around on Motor bikes with mini chairs for the baby in front, but that isn't actually going to happen.

We'll be sleeping in Ubud the whole time, but can obviously go elsewhere for an activity.

The only two things I've found so far are the monkey forrest (though many say it's overrated) and a tour/walk of the rice fields. Are there other activities that are good to do with a kid that are unique to Bali? Does anyone have a driver to recommend for personalized tours?

Bali zoo. Many great photo opportunities with animals.

Batur hot springs has kid friendly activities like boat rides (little goose shaped paddle boats that you take onto the crater lake), pools etc.

There are a few places like http://www.peekaboofun.com/ - but it's not anything unique to Bali

Any recent experience with shabbos in bali? Online search shows 2 Chabad center links, where you email them for location info and they supposedly get back to you. Neither of them have responded in the last few weeks. Are there any Chabad houses or Jewish communities in DPS these days?

They have been having a hard time getting people to stay there, they don't last long.
Chabad of Singapore usually deals with it, contact them.

Why go all the way to Bali to stay in a hotel when you can get an amazing Airbnb for super cheap?

Has anyone been to Bali in June?  Is it full time rainy or just on and off?
