Some people claim that Bali is overcrowded, too touristy and not worth visiting, while others say that Bali was the best experience during their tour of Indonesia. A lot of course depends on how you want to experience Bali. In fact, Bali is one of the most popular travel destinations. And with good reason. With beautiful golden beaches surrounded by an azure ocean, this is a paradise for surfers and sun-lovers. Enough reason to book a last-minute Bali!
Anyone looking for promotions will easily find cheap Bali tickets. The island of Bali has its own international airport. It is not only the third largest airport in Indonesia, but it also has excellent connections with Australia, Southeast Asia and the rest of Indonesia. For a trip to Bali you only need a passport that is still valid for at least six months after arrival. A visa can be obtained at the airport from the immigration service and is valid for thirty days.
The main reason why travelers book a last-minute Bali is for the beautiful beaches and pleasant climate. In addition to this paradisiacal setting, there are also many other cultural and religious attractions.
Kuta Beach is the most famous beach in Bali. It is not only a hotspot for surfers, beginners or not, but also the ideal place to meet other travelers. Kuta is therefore known for its lively nightlife and typical island atmosphere.
Ubud is another place on Bali that you should not miss. It is often described as the heart of Bali and it is the place where you will find the best of Bali: nature, culture, people, temples, museums and rice fields. You can explore the area by bike, take cooking classes or feel the adrenaline rush through your body by going rafting or abseiling. You can relax by yoga and meditation or by re-energizing with one of the various spa treatments.
Although the island is full of temples, that of Ulun Dalu is perhaps the most beautiful. It is located on the shores of Lake Bratan in Bedugul and is dedicated to the goddess of the lake. It is one of the most relaxing locations in Bali.
With an impressive nature, beautiful beaches and a unique culture you would think that the Indonesian island is a top destination for ecotourism. Nothing could be further from the truth. The island is plagued by a different type of tourism. Yet there are enough alternatives for those who want to discover Bali in a sustainable way.
One of the best ways to explore Bali is by cycling through the rural landscape. Furthermore, you can travel sustainably by staying in an eco villa instead of a hotel, by eating locally and by buying souvenirs from the locals instead of the statuettes made in China.
