Bali Beach Resort
Bali Beach Resorts
Bali has been inhabited for over 3,000 years and was influenced by India's Hinduism around the 10th or 11th century. There are more than 20,000 temples and palaces in Bali but Uluwatu Temple is worth a visit. This 11th century Hindu temple is perched on a cliff and the locals believe that it protects the island from evil spirits.
Another must visit is Mt Agung, the island's tallest volcano, standing at 3142m tall. This volcano was believed, by ancient tribes, to be the centre of the universe.
You can learn more about Bali's fascinating history - including the Dutch conquest and Bali's eventual independence - at the Bali Museum.
Things to do
Benoa Harbour is the place to be when it comes to water sports. From here, you can go on a boat cruise or try snorkelling, scuba diving, surfing and fishing. Or if you're after an adrenalin rush, try white water rafting down the Melangit River.
For a fast paced environment with lots of nightlife, watersports, day spas and beachside massage huts, stay in the tourist hub of Kuta. Legian Beach is another great resort area and it's only 10 minutes from the airport. On the other hand, if you're after something a bit more laid back, you can chill out in the relaxed atmosphere of Jimbaran.
Shopping and dining
The Badung and Kumbasari markets are a great place to pick up some souvenirs at bargain prices. You can grab textiles, paintings, ceramics, hand woven bamboo items and other local handicrafts.
After a big day of activities (or lazing around on the beach), sit down and enjoy a coconut milk curry or a spicy stir-fry. You'll also be able to feast on lots of tropical fruit and wash it all down with an icy-cold Bintang Beer.
Getting here and around
To get here, book a seat on one of these cheap flights to Bali. Once you've arrived, the easiest way to get around is by hiring a motorbike. If you're not keen on that though, you can get around by minivan or taxi, but it is significantly more expensive.
