Surfing mecca, tropical paradise, center of bamboo architecture, "island of the gods" - Bali has many faces. The appeal of this Indonesian island is unsurpassed and attracts millions of visitors every year. A blend of spiritual meditation and pleasurable enjoyment, Bali exudes an energy that contradicts the stereotype of a quiet oasis. Local culture permeates daily life, with offerings, temples and ceremonies found around every corner. On the other hand, Bali also offers luxurious beach resorts and a wild nightlife.
With black sand beaches, dramatic volcanoes and countless waterfalls, the natural wealth in Bali is inspiring.
