Take a short trip north through the Indian Ocean and discover the island that has something for everyone. Situated at the south-east end of Indonesia, Bali is an idyllic island with a beautiful tropical climate easily reached on a cruise from Australia. It’s considered a paradise on Earth by many, with the majority of Indonesia’s tourism coming from Bali alone – and for good reason too!
Why do people visit Bali? It’s largely down to its stunning beaches. Imagine endless clear blue water with stretching white sands backed by luscious greenery. It’s the perfect place to relax and unwind while you sip a cocktail and get lost in a good book. Surfing and diving are amongst the most popular attractions on these beaches, making them an ideal spot for all kinds of tourists. Expect spectacular seafood and mouth-watering rice dishes served in authentic Indonesian restaurants around the island, washed down with popular Indonesian beers Bintang and Bali Hai.
As well as its beaches, Bali draws people in with its unique and welcoming culture. Balinese people take life slowly, with a more authentic experience the further north you travel. Visit the Tanah Lot, an ancient temple with amazing views, and the Garuda Wisnu Kencana for a collection of Hindu statues in beautiful green surroundings. Fancy a challenge? Mount Batur is an active volcano and sacred mountain for the Balinese. It’s over 5,000 feet high, but is worth the walk for spectacular views and unbeatable natural beauty.
