Indonesia has many islands but Bali, amongst them is one of the most popular, sought after major tourism destination. Bali has preserved its traditions & uniqueness in the most fabulous way. If you dream of a perfect beach vacation with a perfect tropical monsoon climate, then Bali is surely the most captivating paradise to be in. Bali is one island but many destinations within the same and the beauty of Bali is that it has a lot to offer to the travellers. It was incredible to see their cultural & traditional ethics portrayed even in their sculptures.
Easily approachable by air from Jakarta & also by some direct flights from neighbouring countries arriving at the Ngurah International airport at Denpasar, Bali is just the most happening & enchanting place on earth to visit. Bali is growing economically & socially very fast but still keeps people & travellers magically enchanted with its authenticity & purity. The other major charm of Bali is that it offers its visitors value for money all around. Mainly hindu culture is seen around but I find, that it is actually multi cultural. Bali offers hotel & resorts accommodations to suit every pocket.

You can enjoy the beautiful most serene beaches, surfing, diving, great authentic food, most wonderful temples & natural sites & over & above the very essence of Bali & warm Balinese people themselves.
