Bali: The Traveler's Dream Destination

Bali in Indonesia has long been a popular tourist destination. Benefiting from a warm climate, clear blue seas and long golden beaches, it has attracted travelers from around the world.

Bali is a province of the country of Indonesia. An archipelago of thousands of islands spreading either side of the equator in the Pacific Ocean, South China Sea and Philippine Sea. The world's fourth most populous country, Indonesia is renowned for it welcoming atmosphere. The culture developed with generation of seventeenth and eighteenth century traders and Dutch colonialists. A central tenet of life in Indonesia is a sense of community and consensus, making it a relaxed place to take a holiday.

The Best of Bali


Most international travelers will fly into Ngurah Rai airport. Many transnational air companies operate flights into and out of this airport, and it is positioned ideally in the south of the country to access some of the most interesting places for travellers to visit.


Kuta, on the south coast of the island, is renowned for its long sweeping beach. Water sports, diving and beach sports are popular pastimes and there are many bars and restaurants set back from the sand. It is also well-known as a place to dance the night away, including at beach parties.


Ubud is another popular area with travellers. It is a small town set among the volcanic mountains and rice paddies of the central lands. Popular for its food and arts scenes, it is also the perfect base for hiking in the spectacular countryside. Arguably the most popular place to hike in is the Monkey Forest, a sanctuary home to hundreds of Macaques. More fearless animal-lovers may wish to hike among the volcanoes for the chance to meet a komodo dragon.

Nusa Lembongan

A small island just off the coast, Nusa Lembongan is a laid-back place popular with surfers. With no cars and crystal clear waters it is a great place for a few days of dedicated rest and relaxation, helped in part by its reputation as a place to practice yoga and get an expert massage.
With year-round sunshine, a great food scene based on fresh produce and a fascinating mix of cultures and histories, Bali is an enticing place for all travelers looking for a tropical paradise.

Huge surf crashes below as a king long-tailed macaque protects sacred Uluwatu Temple.

Monkeys are held sacred by the Balinese.  They help generate the forest and protect temples such as Uluwatu Temple.  There are thousands of long-tailed macaques dwelling in the dry forest near Uluwatu Temple. They are divided into three groups of monkeys that cover three separate regions of the temple. Each territory is lead by king monkey that monitors their area and protects it from outsider monkeys.
