Bali has long been equated with an exotic paradise, a picturesque vision of green rice fields and plantations, soaring volcanoes, cool lakes and rushing rivers, lush forests and palm-fringed beaches.
With its culture and heritage still being respected and observed, this island is a largely unspoilt, authentic getaway for the traveller.
It is Indonesia's number one tourist destination and as a result, suffers from commercialisation and overcrowding, but this is confined to a few main areas.
The original charm of the "Island of the Gods" and its smiling people is still very much in evidence, especially in the many small rural villages and fascinating places of the fertile interior.
While Bali is best known for its beaches, it does have plenty more to offer. Rent a bike in Ubud and explore the island on two wheels or if you’re keen for adventure to try mountain climbing on Mount Batur.
However, when in Bali you’re practically surrounded by water so take the plunge and try all the different water activities you can. Go surfing, kayaking, banana boating, or simply snorkelling and swimming.
You can easily find the best diving spots in Bali, including Menjangan Island, which is among the best spots on the island. And since it’s somewhat secluded, you can be sure the place will be quite serene.
Bali is also known for its cuisine, considered very complex because of its different influences, including Indonesian, Chinese, and Indian. Expect to find fresh vegetables, fish, and meat spiced to perfection!
