6 Reasons To Visit Bali In 2019
Bali is one of those places that you just fall in love with the moment you step foot on the island, which is why I have visited this Indonesian destination more than once. 2019 is the perfect year to finally tick off that bucket list trip to Bali, and here are six reasons why.
Of course, an Indonesian island is bound to spoil you with their beaches, and Bali is certainly no different. However, it isn’t just about the rich collection of beautiful beaches in Bali. There is a lot more to offer. The landscape itself is a sight to behold, with mountains in one corner and rice paddies in the other. Bali is also home to several coral reefs, making the underwater sights just as fascinating as the ones on land.
I have already confessed that the food in Indonesia is some of the best I’ve ever eaten, so Bali is a real culinary delight. Some of the best restaurants in the world can be found on this little island, including the award-winning Mozaic Restaurant Gastronomique in Ubud. Head to Seminyak where you’ll find the aptly nicknamed ‘eat street,’ if you want to experience a real range of Balinese cuisine.
Many people flock to Bali to catch a glimpse of some of the many mystical temples on offer here, and they rarely go home disappointed. Some of the must-sees include Besakih Temple, Goa Gajah, and Lempuyang Temple. As well as the temples, however, there are also plenty of yoga and meditation retreats. If you want to visit somewhere for a spiritual awakening, then you really can’t go wrong with Bali!
The second time I went to Bali, which was seven years after my first trip, I decided to explore some of the hidden gems a bit more than the usual tourist hotspots. I put together a list of 11 things to do in Bali that you won’t find on TripAdvisor, and it’s still one of my most popular posts today. One of the best things about this island is you can spend your time doing touristy things, heading off the beaten path, or a mixture of the two.
