Bali

Overview

Lapped the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, Bali is but one of 17,500 islands in the Indonesian archipelago, yet even among its colorful neighbors—and even after decades of tourism development—it stands alone in its lushness and incomparable beauty. It is part of the Coral Triangle, which has the highest diversity of marine species, making the coral reefs that surround the island a spectacular sight. Despite the island’s small size, its population holds most of Indonesia’s Hindu minority. It’s known for surfing, ancient temples and palaces, but also has active volcanoes and wild jungles. It has white sand beaches in the south, and striking black sand in the north and west. The island’s mysticism and its spiritual and eclectic culture are sure to get you hooked when you travel to Bali.

Attractions:

A trip to Bali can be filled with culture, nature, art, the spiritual or, even better, all of these. Apart from the wealth of Bali attractions, from the spectacular beaches of Kuta, Nusa Dua and Seminyak, or Ubud’s cultural heart and picturesque terraced rice fields, the northeastern coastal towns and Lombok Island are hidden gems awaiting discovery.

The west coast of Bali is still off the beaten path, with tapering ranges of mountains covered in lush forests, wet rice fields and bountiful vegetation. Bali attractions also comprise historical sites and buildings that stand the tests of time, and a range of museums and art galleries all offer a different glimpse of Bali, be it for the curious traveller or honeymooners looking for their memorable scene in Bali.

High season is during the months of July and August, during Easter Holidays, and Christmas / New Year (December till 1st week of January).
