How much does the Bali Jungle swings in Ubud cost?
Bali Swing price for Package A (35 USD) – Includes entrance fee, open bar (soft drinks, coffee, tea, water, cake), lunch buffet and 13 activities: 4 single swings (10m, 15m, 20m and 78m above ground), old-school tandem swing, 4 nests, butterfly garden, helicopter, heart-shaped rock in the jungle and huge stone over the edge above the valley with an amazing view of the canyon and waterfall.
Jungle Swing price for Package B (10 USD) – Includes entrance fee, open bar (soft drinks, coffee, tea, water, cake), lunch buffet, butterfly garden, helicopter, heart-shaped rock and huge stone.
The Bongkasa entrance fee is completely worth it in my eyes. This is for a full day entry ticket to the jungle swings and nests. Also, dinner, tea and coffee is included in the Bali swing price.
Best time to go to the Bali swing Ubud?
The best time to visit the Jungle swing in Bali is in the morning. You should arrive at the swing before it opens. This way you will have to best time and a free roam on all the swings before the tourists get there.
As the day goes at the Bongkasa Jungle swing, more and more tourists pour in to get part of the action. so for the question when is the best time to visit the Bali swing? This is why I say get there for the morning.
For example, 2pm in the day is just unbearable! the ques for the swings are crazy. You can be waiting 30 minutes just to get on one of the swings.
How to get to the Bali swing – Ubud?
You can arrange to be picked up from the centre of Ubud for an extra $6 a person if you like.
- Free transport provided by the swings company –There is a free bus to the Ubud swing from the centre of Ubud.
- Scooter rental in Ubud – We used the scooter and personally I think this is the best way of getting around Ubud if you are comfortable at driving scooters. You can rent a scooter for $5 a day. And fill it with a full tank of gas for $2. There is also free parking at the Tegalalang swing.
- Taxi – You can of course take a taxi to the Ubud swing and back, however, this will most likely be the most expensive option.
- do a hike through Ubud – You could possibly walk it if you wanted, but it would take you around 2 hours. This would be a great way to see the best things in Ubud up close and personal.
The Ubud Bali swings opening times
The swing opens at (8am) here is the actual opening and closing time of the Bali Swings;

We was the first ones there and had a choice to go on all the best swings first, so I would recommend getting there early as possible for the Ubud swing opening time.
It started getting crowded at 1pm as the day went on and this caused waiting time for the swings. If you get there as soon as it opens you should have a good 30-minute to enjoy which ever swing you want on the Ubud swings.
