Dreaming of Bali? So are we! This tropical paradise is easy to get to and full of the most beautiful beaches and fascinating historical locations.
Check out our top five picks for your visit (or just your daydreams)!
Tanah Lot Temple
Nestled on a rock near the waves, the temple pays tribute to the sea gods! Learn about the religious history of the island as you appreciate the majesty of a sunset going down behind the temple.
Ubud Art Market
The art market is fantastic for buying all kinds of traditional and modern Balinese art objects. Mostly hand crafted, the art market is home to woven items like baskets and hats, hand carved statues, scarves, kites, and nearly anything else you might want.
Tegallalang Rice Terraces
Getting away from the beaches, head inland and visit the amazing Tegallalang Rice Terraces. They’re a fine example of subak, a traditional Balinese cooperative irrigation system still in use today.
The green hills and lush farm land were a true technological marvel in their day, and they remain a beautiful and flourishing site to visit.
Justly famous, the monkey forest is home to hundreds of grey long-tailed macaque monkeys, as well as scientific research stations studying the region’s flora and fauna and religious sites deep within the forest.
Finally, we recommend visiting this cliff side sea temple adjacent to a monkey forest. The view is simply breathtaking, and you can catch a sunset kecak fire dance in the evening.
