Bali is one of those destinations that are on everyone’s bucket list. With breathtaking pink sunsets to postcard perfect rice fields, glorious islands and a large number of waterfalls, Bali sure will take your breath away. It is a great place for a holiday, whether it be for a short break, a week or two. Since it is so close to Australia, it is very common, particularly Australians, to come here every year. And once you get a taste of it, there is no looking back.
Bali is loved by one and all. It caters to the needs of all people alike, young or old, man or woman. Simply choose what you love to do and you can come up with a stunning itinerary by yourself.
Kuta is the most well-known region in Bali and obviously, it is brimming with tourists all year long. You can find shopping malls, bars, and discotheques. Legian and Seminyak come next, but with more sophistication. If you are young at heart, these are the places you would want to head to. Nusa Dua is Bali’s gem in its truest sense with five-star resorts and hotels. While it seems affordable, the F&B can tear you apart. Bukit is home to some classic beaches of Bali. Need a getaway from the throbbing crowd and busy nightlife? This is the place for you.
But where do I stay in Bali? Is a question I get asked the most. When you plan a trip your options are unlimited and you can opt for a luxury villa with private pools, or budget hotels or majestic bungalows. There are many villas in Bali and fret not! There are some amazing accommodation deals in travel websites like Agoda and Trivago.
