When you think of tropical resorts, Bali is probably one of the first destinations that come to mind.
This major tourist destination has something for everyone. From its stunning beaches and lush green forests to its world-famous nightlife and diverse culture, there’s plenty to see and do in Bali.
Whether you’re looking for a relaxing getaway or an adventure-filled holiday, Bali is definitely worth considering.
Even during the peak of the pandemic in 2020, Bali, Indonesia was one of the few areas to reopen its borders to domestic tourists, and then only to international passengers from 19 countries in October 2021.
