The top things to do in Bali make it by far the most popular for visitors of Indonesia, and for many good reasons. The tropical hideaway manages to be an adventurer seeker’s paradise, a spiritual sanctuary, a family friendly getaway, a food lover’s paradise and a surfer’s oasis all at once. The locals’ warm and welcoming ways and connection to their rich cultural and religious heritage is complemented by landscapes that include rocky coastal cliffs, coral reefs within aquamarine oceans, steep volcanic mountains and emerald-green rice paddy fields. While its natural beauty is plentiful, you’ll also find an excellent and eclectic dining scene. Whether you want to get amongst the action of Seminyak, the relaxed vibes of Canggu, the beaches of the Bukit Peninsula or the idyllic neighbouring islands, there’s a lot to explore in beautiful Bali.
