Here are some reasons why Bali is a great place for a vacation:

  • Surf and sand – Bali is synonymous with beaches, so there’s Nusa Dua, Kuta, Sanur, Balangan, Padang-Padang, Lovina, and Nyang Nyang, among a lot of other beaches to explore. The beaches are best explored in the April-October period, which is the dry season. Most of the beaches offer excellent opportunities for swimming, surfing ad snorkelling. Or maybe just to relax and stare at the vast expanse of blue!
  • Rice terraces: A treat to the eye – One sight that tells you almost immediately that one is in Bali is that of green rice terraces. The story of Balinese rice terrace sites goes back over a 1,000 years when stepped terraces were chiselled out of hills by farmers. The Balinese love their rice, which explains the importance attached to the rice terraces. The best places to explore these rice terraces are in northern side of Tegallalang village that is the central area of Bali. In the Tabanan Regency of Bali are the Jatiluwih rice terraces, named a UNESCO cultural landscape, and definitely worth visiting.
  • Serenity and temples – A visit to Bali is incomplete without also seeing their temples also called pura in Balinese. Do plan a visit to the Pura Besakih in East Bali, known to be among the most sacred temples of Bali, or the Pura Tanah Lot, which is a spectacular sight. The latter is on a rock which is a little distance away from the shore. Catch a glimpse of the wonderful sunset at Tanah Lot.
  • Stress-buster, this massage! – If you are done with running around Bali and experiencing the sights, you can relax by getting yourself a nice Balinese massage. There are Balinese massages available in other parts of the world, but getting one in Bali is an authentic experience. The island is full of spas in Kuta, Legian and Seminyak where you can get these massages.
  • Balinese food – Don’t miss out on experiencing the complex cuisine of the Balinese, which involves exotic spices and rice, and some wonderful desserts. Try the Nasi Goreng, Gado-Gado, Babi Guling, and the Satay when you are here.

The list is endless, and we gave you just a glimpse into why Bali is a great idea. Accommodation is not a problem, and the island is buzzing with activity at any given time of the year.
