Basic information

A small island paradise in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, Bali is one of the islands that make up the Indonesian Archipelago. It will surprise you with its lively nature and tropical charm; a real “island of the gods”, full of exotic flowers, long beaches, coral reefs, rice fields, and ancient temples. Bali has been one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world since the 1970s. Its authentic atmosphere has inspired many travellers and artists from all over the world, who have decided to make Bali their home away from home. Freedom, tolerance, as well as the esteem of the locals, plays a significant role in their lives, and you will always meet smiling faces here. The boom in the tourism industry has brought many changes, especially better roads, telecommunications, education, and healthcare. Although tourism has also had certain adverse environmental and social impacts, the island’s unique culture has remained remarkably resilient. Coffee lovers can enjoy a cup of one of the most expensive coffees in the world – Kopi Luwak, processed from the droppings of the Asian palm civet. You will frequently come across breath-taking natural beauties and friendly people proud of their ancient culture, spirituality, and traditions during your holiday, whether in the form of religious ceremonies, music, or Bali dances.
