BALI is an amazing destination, a favourite holiday spot for people from all over the world.
Once on this beautiful island you will experience an explosion of new sights, sounds, smells & tastes, ones that you will remember forever.
If you keep an open mind about trying new adventures & are respectful, Bali & her people will open their arms up to you & you will have an incredible holiday. Get ready for an adventure, whether you stay in the tourist zone of Kuta or upmarket Seminyak, explore the arts in Ubud, hang out at the hipster Canggu, or dive & snorkel on one of the Gili islands.
You can climb to the top of a volcano to watch the sunrise, bathe in hot healing spring baths, visit ancient temples surrounded by pools full of hundreds of colourful koi fish, feed cheeky monkeys in a sacred forest, bargain in busy colorful markets, dine in restaurants overlooking rice terraces, have drinks at bars perched on rocks overlooking the ocean or watch the sunset whilst eating a delicious seafood dinner on the beach.
There is something for everyone & no matter how many times you visit there is always something new to discover.
