The Complete Guide To Swinging on Swings in Bali (The Best Instagram Swings in Bali)

Last Updated:  

So it all started with the famous Bali Swing in Ubud.
Built in the garden of an Air BnB host, the view and swing made for an amazing photo (Instagram) location
Since then swings have popped up all throughout Bali.
No visit here would be complete without photos on the famous giant swings.
Bali, being is one of the most picturesque destinations in the world is an amzazing place for this.


Here are our exclusive tips:
Camera: Bring your Phone camera and DSLR Cameras. If you’re bring a DSLR camera bring a zoom telephoto lens (ie. 70-200mm) and wide angle lens (ie. 16-35mm).
Take: Take photos, videos, timelapses, boomerangs, etc.
Clothing: Wear COLORFUL clothes. Bring ALL of your Favorite outfitd and makeup. You can usually change on site. Colors that stand out are Red and Yellow and white dresses (in that order). Bring them all because you can change and take different pictures. If you bring a dress bring a dress that flows in the back to capture the flow-y movement of the dress.
Hydrate: Drink lots of water so you dont get dehydrated. You’ll be in the hot sun so this is pretty important.
**Motion Sickness Medicine**: After your first swing you WILL feel nauseous so prepare in advance. THIS IS ESSENTIAL DO NOT FORGET IT !Not medical advice: Take one 25mg Tablet of Meclizine the Night Before and one 25mg Tablet of Meclizine the morning of your swing day. You can buy 100 25mg tablets for ~$5US on Amazon:
Rugby Meclizine 25mg Travel Sickness 100ct on Amazon
Time: Allow at least 2-3h and go at a leisurely pace and take lots of pictures.
Frame Your Shots Ahead of Time: Practice framing your shots while you are waiting on other people to get the best angles. The best angles tend to be on the side of the swings – try different angles. Don’t be afraid to ask the swing pushers for what angles are the best.
Safety: Use common sense and avoid areas behind the swing or grabbing or putting your feet down. Don’t die doing it for the gram. It’s not worth it.
Wait For It: Some of the best pictures are when the clouds block the sun so if there are NO clouds in the sky wait for the clouds to filter the harsh sunlight for you own giant lightbox.
Get There Early: Get there Early to avoid long waits and lines.
Shadows: Watch out for shadows created by the moving sun. At certain times of the day it is almost impossible to get a properly exposed shot of the subject and background.
Deals: Check klook.com for deals.
