Bali, Indonesia


Fascinating cultures and a friendly welcome

The tropical island of Bali, which is the capital of Indonesia, conjures up images of the mystical east. It is rich in history and traditions which means there are plenty of intriguing sites to see and visit – the island itself boasts 20,000 temples! Fringed with perfect beaches and colourful coral reefs, Bali is a land of stunning natural beauty with dramatic valleys and lush rice terraces located inland.

This is the perfect destination for a multi-centre holiday – you could combine your Bali visit with a stay in Dubai or you could choose to stay in Singapore or Bangkok as well. We can chat through all the options with you if this is something  you would like to consider.

Bali has some excellent beaches such as those at Kuta and Seminyak plus it lies within the ‘Coral Triangle’ – a rich ecosystem that provides fantastic diving opportunities. Seminyak is a popular choice with surfers and there are plenty of beachfront restaurants where you can sit back and enjoy a leisurely meal when you’re done with your activities for the day.

Visit some of the many sacred temples that abound on Bali. We would definitely recommend seeing the Uluwatu Temple which is one of six key temples believed to be Bali’s spiritual pillars. It enjoys a magnificent location perched on top of a steep cliff above the sea and the views are simply breathtaking.

Don’t worry about food options as there are plenty of places to enjoy quality food choices, from cafes and street food stalls to local eateries and top-notch restaurants. You can find classic international fare as well as mouthwatering Indonesian specialties. Fruit, veg and fish are generally fabulously fresh and there are some good choices for vegans and vegetarians too.
