The island of Bali is a stunning blend of gorgeous nature, deep-rooted tradition and innovative farming practices. UNESCO World Heritage Sites like the Jatiluwih and Tegallalang rice terraces showcase this perfectly.
The locals in Bali are warm, friendly and incredibly welcoming to all visitors. They also have a good sense of humor. If you need to relax and unwind, you can enjoy a massage at one of the many spas or have a nice conversation over coffee at a cafe.
For thrill seekers, you can find white water rafting, diving, volcano hiking, jungle trekking and cycling here. There is also plenty of luxury accommodation to suit every budget including villas, boutique hotels and luxury resorts.
Almost everyone knows that the Bali beaches are beautiful but there are so many more hidden gems to discover. From the pristine waters in Nusa Lembongan to the black sand beach at Uluwatu, there are so many different beaches to choose from.
You can find a lot of cool handmade crafts in Bali, from wood carvings to paintings and even rattan bags. The island is also famous for its coffee beans, spices and oils.
The main mode of transport in Bali is the bemo, which is an open-air minibus. You can rent a bemo from almost anywhere in the island but it’s important to bargain because drivers tend to overcharge foreign tourists. You can also take a taxi or an online app but be sure to bring your credit card (some places only accept local currencies). You can use it in most restaurants and bars, though.
