Bali is one of the most popular destinations in Indonesia, and there is a good reason why. Simply put, it’s amazing. If it had better internet, I would live there in a heartbeat! The countryside is beautiful, the beaches (outside of Kuta) are picture perfect, there is great hiking, friendly locals, world-class dining, and it’s inexpensive. Bali is the total package. There’s a reason why so many people go here and never leave. I spent a month exploring this island and would happily go back and explore it again. If you are considering going here, just pull the trigger and go — you won’t regret it. And once you leave the touristy southeast corner of the island, you won’t be bothered with crowds of tourist who never venture past their bars and spas in Ubud and Kuta! This guide will show you how to make the most of your visit.
