With tropical beaches, lush vegetation and volcanic mountains, it’s no wonder that Bali has been given the nickname of ‘Island of the Gods’. This Indonesian island is renowned for its laidback lifestyle and has swiftly become a mecca for backpackers, yogis, surfers and luxury travellers alike.
It takes just three hours to get from one end of the island to another, and there’s no better way to explore the island than by hiring a motorbike. Take in the iconic rice paddies just outside of Ubud, visit the stunning Uluwatu and Besakih temples, and head to Kuta for world-class surfing. Seminyak boasts some of the most glorious beaches in Bali, and here you can catch a stunning sunset whilst enjoying a cocktail or two.
Bali is wonderfully cheap and a bargain-hunters dream. Pick up traditional trinkets at the Sukawati Art Market in Gianyar and Ubud Art Market – remember, don’t be afraid to haggle! As Bali is so budget-friendly, you will find a whole host of accommodation options to suit every budget – from luxury five-star spa resorts to traditional home stays, Bali has you covered.
If you’re looking for beautiful scenery, rich culture and wonderful hospitality, look no further than beautiful Bali.
