Bali, Indonesia

Bali, Indonesia is one of the Indonesia's 33 provinces and is unusual for two reasons. Over 90 percent of the population follows Balinese Hinduism, and it is a paradise for tourists seeking a spectacular beach holiday and ancient culture and art. Since 80 percent of the economy depends on tourism, the Balinese people are very friendly, welcoming and want to make sure visitors have a good time and want to return.

Bali was awarded Best Island from Travel and Leisure in 2010, and there is good reason for this. Visitors go to Bali for the miles of white sand beaches in the south and black sand in the north, flavorful food, beautiful natural scenery and lots of activities including bike tours, cooking and jewelry making classes.

Fishing Boats, Kuta Beach, Bali, IndoneisiaKuta is the place to see and be seen, crowded with high energy fun, but there are more relaxing beach towns such as Pemuteran, Lovina and Amed. Nusa Lembongan is the most developed island for tourism and doesn’t have cars or motorcycles. It is very quiet and relaxing. There are Explorer boats to take visitors to the island every day as well as the Perama boat and the public boats. All the water sports are available including fishing, surfing, diving and snorkeling.

Bali is a very mountainous island with several peaks that are over 3,000 meters high. Mount Agnug is the highest, known as the ‘mother mountain’ and is an active volcano. The verdant rice fields are south of the mountains gently sloping to the capital Denpasar and beyond to the southern beaches. A visit to the Jatiluwih rice fields is considered one of the top things to do in Bali. Paru Luhur Batukau is in Jatiluwih, and is also worth seeing. It is a secluded temple in the jungle that few tourists visit. It is a beautiful temple that is reminiscent of old Bali.

The Devdan show in Nusa Dua gives a magical trip around the whole Indonesian Archipelago with a fusion of traditional dances and contemporary dance. The costumes, special effects and aerial acrobatics are fantastic.


The Bali Bird Park in Gianyar has a wide range of birds and other wildlife. Visitors can walk among the birds, and some are so tame they sit on the shoulders of visitors for photographs. Also in Gianyar, take a walk underwater among the fish and coral. This is great for people who don’t dive or snorkel. There is a special headgear breathing helmet that is absolutely safe and easy to use.

Bali is visitor friendly with world class beaches, cultural and nature activities and a nightlife that doesn't quit.
