If you have a bucket list for travel destinations, Bali should be on there. This tropical paradise has a rich culture to offer, tasty traditional cuisine, stunning sights, and an intoxicating attitude from the friendly locals. This Indonesian island has more to offer than sandy beaches, warm weather, and crystal blue waters. It is the perfect destination for people who love the crisp fresh air that can only come from being beside a coastline and stunning sights that will take your breath away.
Bali is the most famous island in the thousands of islands in the Indonesian archipelago (over 17,000 islands). It is a 95 mile wide located in the Indian Ocean, just west of the tip of Java. It is a great tourist attraction that has drawn the attention of people all over the world, especially Australians. Visiting Bali allows you to do and see amazing things that are often found on an adventurer’s bucket list.
There is nothing that brings a vacation together like a traditional meal that is beyond anything that has experienced. Local Indonesian cuisine will do this to you, and Bali is the place to give your mouth a sophisticated palate. Not only is Indonesian food incredibly tasty, but it is also vibrant and full of flavor. Indulge in a variety of food from local places; enjoy regional favorites such as beef rendang, nasi goreng, nasi campur, chicken satay, and Gado Gado.
Balinese culture is rich with evident influence from the arrival of merchants’ vessels from China, Netherlands, and India. Bali is famous for its rich culture that is accurately represented in songs, dance, clothes, and even architecture. If you plan your trip just right, you may get to be part of some traditional and religious festivals. Hinduism is also the major influence behind the temples and festivities, so look forward to colorful festivals filled with beautiful music, and dance.
Adventure at Every Turn
Bali possesses an adventurous spirit, and so it is a great place to explore your wild side. Get your dose of adrenaline when you go surfing on the gentle but promising waves down at Kuta Lombok with the locals. If you go to Bali, my buddy from Eden Prairie Roofing said you can go scuba diving off the Gili islands with majestic and friendly sea turtles where you are bound to get a set of great pictures. You can also go snorkeling through coral gardens in Gili Meno from traditional glass boats where things are vibrant and colorful.
