Highlights of Bali

Perhaps the most spiritual of all Indonesia's islands and also the most visited, Bali has a rich culture and striking landscapes, and offers a diverse range of activities and entertainment. The less developed and more mountainous central and northern areas is where you will find the Bali of old; traditional villages cultivating rice on ancient terraces, mystical temples in the shadows of volcanoes and fishing communities dotted around undisturbed shorelines. The south is the place to go for wide golden sand beaches, world class accommodation, shops, restaurants and nightlife.
