Bali is an island with so many options and different vibes. Get up before the crack of dawn and wander through the gorgeous Tegalalang rice terraces before tourists arrive en mass, or greet the morning sun with a relaxing yoga session in Ubud. You can ride the waves and chill out at one of the many trendy cafes from Kuta and Seminyak all the way to hipster haven, Canggu. Jimbaran is the spot for the freshest seafood with gorgeous sunset views and Nusa Dua and the Bukit offer stunning white sand beaches. Cruise around and explore this spectacular island on a motorbike, and if you’re lucky, you’ll witness the pinnacle of Bali’s devotion to their faith; a colourful procession en route to a ceremony. Bali is an island that has successfully integrated its ancient rituals into the hustle-bustle of modern day life and it is fascinating to be a part of it.
