Listing all the things that make visitors fall in love with the Indonesian province of Bali would take the day, but its tropical climate, cultural heritage, kindness of its people, laid back atmosphere, cuisine and landscapes are part of it.

There’s this something that no one can explain, which gives Bali this magical appeal, even for the traveler who has “seen it all”.


Surfing in Bali.

If the #1 thing you want to do is get an adrenalin rush, you’ll find lots of options in Bali. Take your surf board to the surf town of Canggu, where you’re likely to run into people from around the world. Once a fishing village, it’s now a hip beach town with waves for beginners to rippers.

And if you’re a water lover, you’ll definitely want to fit in some whitewater rafting. The best options are considered to be Ayung river rafting Ubud, Telaga Waja rafting in Karang Asem, and Melangit River rafting in Klungkung.

Never tried flyboarding? Bali may be the perfect place for you where you can ride or fly up to 10 meters high using special boots or a specially designed bike. And if biking is one of your favorite activities, you’ll want to try out paratriking, and see how it feels to have your wheels flying through the air!

You’ll also find some fabulous spots for canyoning — combining the thrills of spelunking and rappelling under rushing waterfalls — check out the Maya Dewa Canyon with its 5 vertical rappels of up to 35 m and a 50-m long waterfall zipline.

And of course there’s also freediving (how long can you hold your breath?) and wakeboarding. With slides and obstacles on a 50,000-sq-m lake, an infinity pool and a restaurant overlooking the course, Bali Wake Park in Tanjung Benoa is another place not to miss.


Bali is popular for its beaches, indeed it’s quite possible to sunbath at the edge of beautiful beaches such as Seminyak, Nusa Dua, Sanur, etc.

For those who dream of postcard beaches, Bali has the advantage of not being far from Lombok and the Gili Islands. They’re both accessible by speed boat from Bali for a crossing of about two hours. You’ll find magnificent sunsets are waiting for you!


While you are sipping a coffee or a juice in a restaurant, the sound of a gamelan sounds and the traffic stops to let a dressed crowd pass: pyramids of fruits, parasols adorned with pom poms and barongs. This procession, which goes away as quickly as it arrives. will leave you wondering. However, above all it will leave you with the feeling of having lived a unique moment.

Another thing, Bali is certainly this mixture of modernity with its hotels, restaurants, etc. but it has managed to keep its traditions and its ancient customs. These are part of the Hindu philosophy and perfectly defines the Balinese who put them into practice in the life of every day through their offerings and ceremonies. And it you enjoy festivals, they’re even richer and more impressive during major festivals such as Melasti.

Bali remains authentic despite the many tourists who come to visit it each year, to discover it nothing could be easier. You just have to get off the beaten track otherwise you’ll miss out on what Bali has to offer to enrich your inside.


Bali’s nature has incredible diversity. You’ll find magnificent rice terraces, white to black sand beaches, volcanoes, lakes, mountains, waterfalls, and beautiful diving / snorkeling spots. In short, it all looks like a small paradise just impressive to admire and to see. take pictures. The best part is that you can easily do activities in this nature that will create beautiful memories.


Bali has thousands of temples, from the smallest of families, to the most majestic and important such as Tanahlot, to those a little forgotten by tourists such as the temple of Batukaru. You could think of temples over and over again temples that all look alike.

However, once there you’ll find that each temple is unique and has a particularity that suddenly makes it much more interesting. You may even fall in love with its charm and discover what Bali really is about.


Bali’s history can be traced back to the Stone Age, although the rich heritage we find today began with the Empire of the Majapahit about 1293. The Majapahit Empire decline in the 15th century, when the island welcomed many Hindu priests, intellectuals, artists, and even members of the Royal family.

Bali is home to Subak System Rice Terraces UNESCO World Heritage site. It consists of five rice terraces covering 19,500 hectares showing one of the oldest and most complex subak agricultural systems.
