Bali is the most popular island holiday destination in the Indonesian archipelago and was recently voted the number one destination in Asia and number one destination in the World. It has entranced foreigners from artists and writers in the 19th century through to surfers in the 20th century. These days, everyone from the budget conscious back-packer to the well-heeled luxury traveler comes to explore all that the island has to offer. Bali has a varied landscape of hills and mountains, rugged coastlines and long sandy beaches, and lush rice terraces alongside barren volcanic hillsides. Bali is colourful, deeply spiritual and completely unique. Exotic temples and palaces are surrounded by incredible natural beauty, and the island offers a paradise for all who visit.
Also known as the Land of the Gods, Bali forms part of the Coral Triangle, an area with the highest bio-diversity of marine species. Balinese locals are warm and hospitable, and keen to share their island with you. Renowned for its famous surf beaches, rich tribal culture, and vibrant nightlife, Bali has a population of more than 4 million locals, with Hinduism being the most prevalent religion. With a history dating back over 1,000 years, the island provides a largely modern, well developed tropical paradise, but inland, various villages still offer an insight into the ancient Balinese culture.
Denpasar is Bali’s capital, and whilst it is a business hub, it is not the main tourist destination of the island. Indonesian is the official language of Bali but English is widely spoken.
