Why Go?
Impossibly green rice ter races, pulse-pounding surf, en-
chanting Hindu temple ceremonies, mesmerising dance
performances, ribbons of beaches, a truly charming people:
there are as many images of Bali as there are flowers on the
ubiquitous frangipani trees.
This small island looms large for any visit to Indonesia.
No place is more visitor-friendly. Hotels range from surfer
dives to sybaritic retreats in the lush mountains. You can
dine on local foods bursting with flavours fresh from the
markets or let a world-class chef take you on a culinary jour-
ney around the globe. From a cold Bintang (beer) at sunset
to an epic night clubbing, your social whirl is limited only
by your fortitude.
And small obviously doesnt mean homogeneous. Manic
Kuta segues into glitzy Seminyak. The artistic swirl of Ubud
is a counterpoint to misty treks amid the volcanoes. Mel-
low beach towns such as Bingin, Amed and Pemuteran are
found right round the coast.
