Bali

Not just another one of Indonesia's 17,500 islands, Bali is known as the “Island of the Gods.” Bali's active volcanoes, astonishing beaches, and rich jungles, alone make it a natural wonder-not to mention the vast rice fields, exquisite ancient temples, elaborate palaces, and a legacy inherited from eight ancient kingdoms. The peaceful island is also marked by genuine welcome and colorful traditions, which arise from an unusual yet seamless mix of Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and animism. Long considered a spiritual getaway, Bali is truly a destination for the soul.

Hotels

With the best range of accommodation in the world’s largest archipelago, Bali offers everything in the book from a US$4-a-night backpacker hideout in Kuta to the US$4,000-a-night luxury-suite in Ubud.

Food & Drink

Whether it’s the local Balinese cuisine or international culinary delights that you savor, Bali is likely to satisfy your hunger. Home to dozens of bars, restaurants, cafés, as well as delectable streetside stalls, this island is one big blip in the global food radar.

Shopping

An undisputed treasure trove of fine art and handicrafts, arts aficionados will lap up antique and semi-antique furniture, local jewelry, wood and stone carvings, masks, and paintings offered in Bali. Don’t miss out on irresistible local and international designer brands that have set up shop here.

Nightlife

Offering one of the best nightlife experiences in Indonesia, Bali’s funky bars, swanky lounges and exclusive clubs ware waiting to throw open their doors to party-lovers each time. From wild Kuta to sophisticated Nusa Dua to relaxed Ubud, night owls are sure to be delighted one way or the other.

Spa

There is no other substitute for the traditional Balinese spa treatment that combines body scrub with herbs and spices, oil massage and, not to mention, a beautiful and tranquil tropical setting that will take your breath away.
