The Indonesian island of Bali is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the world, thanks to its lush, volcanic landscape, long, sandy white beaches and vibrant culture.
One of the best ways to get the most of out Bali is by taking a tour. The Kintamani Volcano Tour takes in a traditional dance performances, visits to local silver jewellery craftsmen and the cultural hub Ubud, before taking a scenic drive up to Kintamani to take in the views of Lake Batur.
The Balinese are renowned for being excellent sculptors, and there are over 20,000 temples and palaces filled with examples.
If you’re looking for something more adrenalin-fuelled, the island’s perfect for watersports. Hit Nusa Lembongan for surfing, and dive or snorkel the breathtaking coral reefs.
Come sundown, you’ll find plenty to keep you entertained. All-night bars, Bali’s own Full Moon party on Nyang Nyang beach, and the world’s only night-time bungee jump await.
