Bali is considered an island paradise by Australians, as well as many other citizens of the world. This Indonesian island has managed to remain a popular getaway for thousands of visitors each year and is affectionately referred to by a number of names. This “Last Paradise on Earth” and “Island of the Gods” is Indonesia’s largest tourist destination and is home to more than 4 million people. This tropical island nation is just 95 miles wide and is home to two active volcanoes, Mount Agung and Mount Batur, but that’s not what makes it a hot travel destination!
Bali offers fun in the sun and rest and relaxation, and is in no short supply of tourist attractions for everyone.
The main tourist cities in Bali are Seminyak, Sanur, Ubad, Kuta, and Nusa Dua; which are all located in the southern area of Bali. Kuta is by far the main tourist area and is commonly referred to as “surfer central”. Seminyak is home to a very active nightlife and swanky beach resorts. Ubad is a cultural center located in the foothills, and Nusa Dua is comprised of expensive hotels and getaways. All of these cities are within close proximity to each other and can be reached by land travel.
What To Do In Bali
Bali’s tropical location and warm climate makes it a desirable location and destination for surfing, spas, scuba diving, and even destination weddings.
Surfing-Bali is known for its prime surfing real estate and is considered a must see stop for world surfers. Kuta and Nusa Dua are the prime locations for surfing and even have local instructors who can offer their services, for a small fee of course.
Scuba Diving-Scuba diving is popular throughout the country. The island is surrounded by coral reefs and white and black sand beaches.
Spas-Hot springs and spas are immensely popular in Bali and are offered to the locals and tourists alike. Their affordability and effectiveness make them a must-do for many tourists.
Get married-While getting married abroad is not suitable for everyone, Bali provides a wonderful backdrop for any wedding ceremony. Many local venues are capable of performing an entire wedding ceremony with activities. Just make sure that you adhere to Australian marriage laws and the laws of Bali when getting married there, so that the ceremony is properly recognized.
Regardless of where you travel you should have proper travel insurance. Health care around the world varies in nature and expense, so you shouldn’t take any chances. There can be more than a few stops when traveling from Australia to Bali so you want to be certain that if you have any delays or your luggage is lost you won’t be faced with even more hardships or difficulties
Make your trip to Bali one you won’t soon forget!
