Renowned for its colourful culture and scenic vistas, Bali has long been a favourite stop on many a travel itinerary. Whether you choose to lose yourself in the raucous nightlife of Kuta, shop up a storm in Seminyak or explore the temples of Ubud, the Island of the Gods delivers on all fronts. To top it off, the recent influx of world-class hotels, restaurants and bars has added an element of sophistication to the popular holiday island.
When to go:
While Bali is a great destination to explore all year round, the best time to visit is during the dry season between April and October.
How to get around:
Most visitors get around the island by hiring a private car and driver. Plus, the abundance of taxis in most tourist areas makes getting from A to B a breeze.
