We’ll start with the best places to see and then move to plan the budget, where to stay, how to move around, what to pack, and all the information you might find useful to make the best out of your trip.
The Island of the Gods, the Earthen Paradise and the Home of Bintang.
Bali is an Astonishing Natural Marvel enriched by a Culture that nurtures Happiness and Kindness.
The “Island of the Thousand Temples” or the “Last Paradise” are but a few of the countless poetic terms that the island of Bali collected through the years. Indeed, being source of inspiration for artists from all over the world and a paradise for digital nomads, Bali has become in the recent decades one of the most loved destinations in the world.
In my humble opinion, all the attention this Island collected through the years is more than justified and deserved: with accommodation for all pockets (from hostels to extreme luxury villas), unique cultural hotspots, dreamlike waters, and pristine nature, Bali is definitely a heavenly island to Live and Love.
