Destination Guide: Bali
Enchanting temples, draped with lush vegetation, gorgeous beaches, terraced rice fields and exotic flowers: The Indonesian island of Bali is a delectable destination.
Bali offers an enormous range of different experiences - from tranquil retreats to party hotspots, to artistic enclaves. There are refined, luxury hotels and complexes on the cliffs of the Bukit peninsular, an explosion of life in the busy town of Kuta, and quieter, laid-back beach towns in between.
The capital city is Denpasar, and this is also the location of the international airport. Coral reef surrounds the island of Bali and there are both white sand and black sand beaches. The jungle-swathed centre is mountainous, and is home to monkeys and colourful tropical birds.
Rinca island is the place to see Komodo Dragons, and all over Bali you will find sacred Banyan trees, tamarind and bamboo. Your senses will be stirred by the fragrance of native flowers such as frangipani, hibiscus and jasmine.
Boat trips, island hopping, snorkelling and mountain biking are popular activities for visitors to Bali, and spa treatments and massages are de rigeur. There are also thriving artistic communities, particularly in Ubud, and there are art markets all over the island.
Best places to eat and drink in Bali
Balinese food is a delicious alchemy of Asian spices, fresh exotic fruits and fluffy rice. Local, Indonesian dishes include smoked duck, green bean salad, satay dishes and coconut flavoured curries.
The busier resorts have a wide variety of restaurants to choose from, encompassing traditional cuisine, vegetarian cafes, Italian, Mexican, and fine dining. Food stalls, known as Warungs, are everywhere you go, and there are plenty of seafood grills on the beaches.
For a really special meal, it is worth booking a table at the award-winning Mozaik, in Ubud. This restaurant offers a contemporary fusion of French and Asian cuisine dine in an enchanting garden setting. Another Balinese culinary gem is the fashionable Sarong Bali in Kuta which brings a modern twist to Indonesian flavours. There are also numerous highly-rated restaurants at Bali’s five star hotels to try.
