Indonesia’s little slice of heaven is as beautiful as it is cultural.  This stunning island boasts exotic temples, white sand beaches as well astons of activities ranging from snorkelling to bar hopping.  Whatever you have in mind for your next adventure, Bali is sure to have it all.

Once you get to the island, you’ve got an array of options for getting around.  Start by hiring a taxi and checking out the tranquil waters of Lake Bratan.   Tucked into the lush highlands, this stunning lake is also home to the picturesque Pura Ulan Danu Bratan temple.   Situated alone on an island in the lake and often wrapped in a blanket of mist, this temple is absolutely breathtaking and well worth a visit.

If you love temples than Tanah Lot is truly the ultimate experience and a must see.  Built on a rock formation with the ocean as a backdrop, watching the sunset from here will change your life.

For those wanting to explore the natural ecosystem, grab your fins and snorkel and head out for a reef cruise on Lembongan Island.  Here, you can get up close to thousands of colourful fish, sea turtles and manta rays.  If you would prefer to ride the waves, then head to the chic surf community of Seminyak.  With consistent breaks soft sand, surfers ranging from beginner to pro will love a day spent here.  If you’d rather spend your holiday on land, be sure to visit the Sacred Monkey Forest in Ubud.  Home to thousands of cheeky Macaque monkeys as well as the PuraDalemAgungPadangtegal temple, this is one of the coolest spots on the island.

With an endless variety of interesting activities and sights all in a relaxing and beautiful setting, Bali is a great choice for your next holiday.
