Jewel of the Indian Ocean: Visit the Tropical Island of Bali

Bali is divided into three different eras which include the pre-historic, the Hindu Buddhist and the modern culture. The populated areas are on the coast in the south with over 370,000 people in various professions working in the capital of Denpasar. Farming has always been the primary way of life in Bali with fishing, trading and craftsmanship being passed from generation to generation.

A jewel in the Indian Ocean with its serene calm on its shoreline holds a unique mix of nightlife and vibrant markets. Bali is the ultimate in luxury and hospitality with its natural beauty. The luxurious boutique hotels surrounded by lush green hills, with turquoise seas and fine white sands are the start of a fascinating and serene holiday followed by the local culture, there is so much to discover.

There are action packed activities offering scuba diving in the crystal clear lagoon, surfing on a wave, safaris, white water rafting and more. Maybe you are a born and bred beach bum who just wants to laze in the sun topping up the tan and watch the amazing sunsets on a beach front bar and disco. Whether it is an active or lazy holiday you opt for, it won’t be complete without a tour around the island to take in the rich cultural heritage and stocking up with memorabilia, souvenirs, batik paintings, wood carvings and silks.

Sanur Beach is known worldwide for over a century, when the horrendous battle of Puputan Badung took place in September 1906 as the Dutch anchored there. The main attraction is the calm beach where Nusa Penida Island can be seen across the sea in the south east. The mountains are a spectacular sight that must not be missed. The tropical dry weather runs from April to October with May to August being the cooler months with light rains.
