The very name Bali sums up visions of alluring white sand, azure waters, volcanic mountains, and lush forests.
Indonesia’s most famous island is the stuff of legends and often referred to as the ‘island of the Gods’. The reality is that Bali is blessed with an incredible climate, natural beauty and some of the most welcoming people on the planet.
Many of the thoroughly bewitched visitors head for the busy and colourful Kuta area. Kuta is as popular with adventurous backpackers as it is with families seeking memorable holidays.
It’s often a younger crowd who vacation in Seminyak, known for its excellent nighttime economy as well as some of the best retail therapy around!
Those who seek nature at its most magnificent can also rub shoulders with Bali’s colourful arts and culture by visiting Ubud and Gianyar, nestled among iconic rice paddy fields, roaring rivers and waterfalls.
For sun-drenched Bali beach resorts, Sanur or Nusa Dua offer opportunities for beachcombing in isolation or sitting quietly in a hammock beside gently lapping waves.
Despite its enduring popularity with discerning holidaymakers, Bali remains largely unspoilt, brimming with tropical charm. That’s not to say it hasn’t geared up to meet the needs of tourists, which means fine dining, luxury spa resorts and stylish beach-fronted resorts.
