As a part of the archipelago of Indonesia, Bali is an island in the middle of country with other Indonesian islands either side of it and Malaysia to the north.
It is a true paradise with forest-clad hills, jutting mountains and perfect beaches.
Bali is a rare place with something to suit every traveller. Culture lovers can delve in Bali’s spiritual heritage, sun seekers can lounge on volcanic black sand beaches and foodies will be mesmerised by the choice of dishes on offer throughout the island.
Rich in temples and entrenched in their own unique cultural heritage, Bali’s people are simultaneously warm, welcoming and subdued. Unlike Indonesia’s predominantly Muslim population, the citizens of Bali are primarily Hindu making it quite a different experience from much of the country.
