Bali is a tropical island in Indonesia famous for its beautiful beaches, stunning rice terraces, and vibrant culture. This island paradise is a great destination for all kinds of trips. Honeymooners will love the fancy villas and amazing food, and adventurers will enjoy the many outdoor activities and serene hikes. But if you’re looking for something more spiritual, you can explore the temples and sacred caves of this magical island.
The Balinese are very friendly people and they speak some English but it is still helpful to learn a few basic phrases before you arrive, such as “terima kasih” (thank you), “selamat pagi” (good morning) and “selamat malam” (good night).
While tourism is the island’s largest income, farming, fishing, and handicrafts are also important. Each village typically specializes in a specific product such as wood carvings or painted art. And although Bali is known for its beaches, you can also visit the stunning inland waterfalls and pristine jungles.
The hottest and most popular destinations for tourists in Bali are Kuta, Seminyak and Jimbaran where luxury resorts look over world-class surf breaks. However, if you’re seeking a more tranquil experience, the islands north and east are perfect for secluded sandy shores and spectacular sunsets. And if you’re up for an adventurous travel experience, rent a moto and explore the island on your own! You can find plenty of local drivers who will offer you a ride for only $4 a day.
