Bali has long been one of southeast Asia's top holiday destinations thanks to its idyllic tropical scenery, cerulean waters and fascinating local culture. The island is large enough to offer a complete travel experience that combines trips to see natural attractions such as towering volcanoes and tropical rainforest with more sedate beachside relaxation and shopping in the bustling tourist centres of Kuta and Seminyak. The island's unique Hindu festivals are another major attraction and take place throughout the year, while a range of culinary delights means taste adventures are also a major part of Bali's enigmatic appeal. Whether you prefer to eat, love or pray, a vacation on Bali provides plenty to write home about.
