Bali is the most popular island holiday destination in the Indonesian archipelago, with good reason. Here you’ll experience a fine combination of sandy beaches and rolling surf, an ancient culture known for its warm hospitality, and exotic temples and palaces set against stunning natural backdrops. Travel inland and towering volcanoes and pristine jungles await with plenty to see and do, although most can’t stay away from the beach for long. Meal times on Bali offer endless choice of local or far-flung cuisine and, after sunset, famous hotspots come to life offering exciting clubbing scenes and packed dancefloors.
Choose from amazing beach resorts to unparalleled luxury resorts in any of Bali’s famous resorts such as Kuta, Seminyak, Sanur or Nusa Dua, where great hotels and villas are right on the beach. Explore the scenic central highlands of Ubud with its flowing rice fields, valleys and forested rivers – it’s not only a place for cultural day trippers, but also for adventure seekers and shopaholics. Plus, the many more off-the-beaten-track spots around this magical island. Not convinced yet? See our 10 Must See and Do list!
