Bali is a small, tear-dropped shaped island between Java to the west and Lombok to the east and is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. There are world class resorts, dining experiences and spas offering comfort and relaxation across the island.
Bali is called ‘The Island of the Gods’ and it’s uniqueness is derived from its ancient Hindu culture which is evident throughout the island with its ornate temples, ceremonies and traditions.
The island boasts beautiful landscapes with both black and white sand beaches, dramatic volcanoes, lush green rice fields and healthy coral reefs. The ancient subak system of irrigation of the rice fields and the cultural landscape of Bali has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The countryside provides a striking backdrop for trekking rice fields or climbing volcanoes, visiting waterfalls and lakes, cycling tours, whitewater rafting and other adventure tours. The coastal areas offer excellent diving, snorkeling, surfing and more general watersports.
There is plenty of opportunity to experience the Balinese Hindu culture from visiting the landmark temples like Uluwatu or Pura Ulun at Lake Bratan to enjoying a dance performance over dinner or unexpectedly witnessing a formal procession on the road with the ladies in their best temple finery balancing their offerings on their heads.
