Sideman valley (pronounced like “si de man” in Spanish) is one of Bali’s hidden gems, although it has experienced a sudden increase in popularity. You will get there within a 45-minute drive inland from Padang Bai, one hour from Candidasa, 1.5 hours from Ubud, or 2 hours from Kuta. Local hiking trails traverse rice fields, the valleys of the Unda river, and working plantations. Sidemen can be a good setting-off point for a trip to Agung Volcano or a day trip to other sights in East Bali.
