Article by Helen Scott

Bali has had an image of bliss, probably since as early as the 1930’s. To this day it remains one of the most popular tourist destinations out of the whole 17000 islands that make up Indonesia.

Well, for such a small island, there is so much to do. From hiking to dining, relaxing on the beach or trying out a spot of water sports, you name it, Bali’s got it! Bali has been a popular tourist destinations since the beginning of the twentieth century. It’s particularly popular with Australians, which is obviously due to its close proximity to OZ.

Bali is home to a wide variety of beach resorts and hotel options, all priced very differently, so the choice is really yours as to how much you want to spend on your accommodation.

For those looking for an action-packed holiday, the best place in Bali to stay, without a doubt, is Kuta. Kuta is really popular with Backpackers, and loads of backpackers frequent the island all throughout the year.

Its location just a few miles away from the airport also make it the ideal location for those looking for a quick weekend getaway. The last thing you want when you’ve only got a couple of days break away is to spend half the day travelling to and from the airport.

Kuta is packed with great restaurants and bars, and is known for having one of the best beaches on the island. A resort on the best beach in Bali comes with a price tag, but there are also many other great accommodation options for those on a budget.

You can grab a bargain piece of Balinese art, or a painting, painted right in front of your very eyes!

There are also other high-end beach resorts that are somewhat cheaper than the over-the-top Four Seasons experience. Give the Hilton a try.

Jimbaran is home to some of the most luxurious Bali beach resorts one could dream of. One of the most popular (but also one of the most expensive) is The Four Seasons Jimbaran. Definitely worth a visit, even just for a drink or two by the beach.

A trip to Bali is not complete without a night out on the townFor those looking for a simple, relaxing break, Jimbaran is probably the place you want to be.

If you’re looking for something a little more intimate, then there’s a selection of beautifully crafted Balinese private villas to choose from too.

Every product has an asking price, but the locals are familiar with bartering so give it a go! There are some great local paintings to buy and you may well find a bargain on some quality Balinese furniture too.

Remember that it doesn’t matter what beach resort you’re staying in whether it’s a luxury 5 star beach resort, a mid-range 3-4 star hotel or a private villa, the magic of Bali awaits you.
