Natural splendour meets ancient tradition throughout the mystic island of Bali, an island belonging to Indonesia and a magnificent destination filled with beauty and rich in culture where travellers can create the most unforgettable holiday experiences.
Steeped in both religion and mythology, the verdant landscape is home to a number of significant temples dedicated to the age old traditions of Hinduism, whose beliefs include the balance of one’s karma as seen through the acts of daily morality.
The rugged landscape houses a number of wonders both high and low, from the peak of the Mount Batur volcano to the azure depths of the Indian Ocean, with every glorious view in between ranging from small villages to bustling cities and from dense emerald tropics to both black volcanic and pristine white beaches.
Discover the charm of each community throughout Bali, all with their own characteristics and highlights, with market stall trinkets and handicrafts being a main feature found throughout the winding streets of Kuta while the chic, upmarket restaurants of Seminyak urge travellers to sample their fresh local flavours. Even the creative hub of Ubud has spent time in the limelight, serving once as a bohemian escape, the town is now a centre for arts, food and dance, made famous as the setting for the romantic drama ‘Eat Pray Love’.
Desperately seeking culture? Bali has that in spades, with the striking statue of Vishnu a significant landmark located in the Garuda Wisnu Kencana cultural park along the Bukit Peninsula, while the temple of Tanah Lot sits atop a rock formation in Tabanan, one of seven temples located around the Balinese coast dedicated to the ancient sea gods.
Excitement abound for adventurers looking for memorable thrills, with travellers spending time among the coral reef of Nusa Penida as they dive and snorkel to discover the myriad of sea life that inhabit the deep waters. Get up close and personal with the indigenous wildlife at the Ubud Monkey Forest where the local macaques make it a habit to descend from the treetops to interact with tourists. And if that’s not enough, why not test your nerves as you white water raft through the rivers of Ubud, which are filled with twists, turns and spiralling waters as well as magnificent scenery.
But after all is said and done, actions speak louder than words, and with a visit to Bali your actions are sure to be heard for a long time to come.
Whether it’s embracing the culture of the towns and cities that make up Bali’s hospitable populous or cutting a swath through the rugged jungle landscape to uncover natural landmarks, the enriched country of Bali is yours to discover for a truly memorable exotic experience.
Travelbag are happy to accommodate your tour across the majestic lands, filled with deep seeded traditions and stunning views in all directions.

The tours featured in Bali range from the thrilling to the relaxing, with visits to cultural museums and ancient temples where the mythologies and religions of this ancient country can be traced along on a guided tour, to the more hands-on activities of deep-sea diving and mountain climbing to uncover magnificent sights that would otherwise elude the unadventurous.
