The Indonesian island of Bali is blessed with fabulous palm-fringed beaches, luxurious hotels offering superb service and amenities, and some of the best crafts and shopping. It is home to gentle and friendly people with a rich cultural heritage. Known as the 'Island of the Gods’, Bali is famous for its thousands of temples, including the great ’Holy Temple of Besakih'.
Spectacular sights abound on this island, with the Sea Temple of Tanah Lot one of the most impressive, but still nothing prepares the visitor for Bali’s beautiful array of colors, including the vivid greens of its terraced rice fields. Lovers of watersports will not be disappointed, either. Surfing is possible at many isolated areas, as well as at popular Ulu Watu, while Sanur, Kuta and Nusa Dua offer fantastic diving, with the last two of these being among Bali’s most beautiful beaches.
