Touchdown Bali!

Here is a post that is long overdue.

Having grown up in Indonesia, Bali is the first destination our family thinks of every holiday. It is close enough to be convenient, different enough to be novel and full of all things wonderful. Bali’s charm is well-known even beyond the Indonesian borders; people from all over the world come to visit and are so impressed by the rugged mountains, picturesque coastlines and the rich local culture that they call it “the Island of the Gods.”

We have been to Bali so many times that it is actually more difficult to write about it. There are so many pictures, many details stacked over the years. We have walked the beaches of Nusa Dua, got lost in the markets of Kuta and rose very early in the morning to wait in line for the world’s best Babi Guling in Ubud so many times that we have memorized these places by heart.

Even though we have been to Bali so many times, its charm never diminishes. We love the bustling streets, the peaceful beaches, the magnificent temples and the vast expanse of green hills stretching indefinitely.

There are so many different things going on that, no matter what your preference is, you will find something that you enjoy in Bali. If you like the outdoors, great…there are a plethora of activities from swimming, diving, surfing, hiking to taking a stroll through the Monkey Forest. If you prefer high-end dining and instagram-worthy places, Bali has some of the world’s most luxurious hotels and restaurants. If you like a vibrant night life, there are so many places to go that you will have trouble deciding on one…and there are no ‘closing’ time!

Over the next few weeks, we will discuss some basic things, including a guide on food and shopping, beaches, and the local culture. Keep an eye out!

  4. Thanks for stopping by on Crichton’s Co-Op. Your images of Bali make it look very appealing. It’s a place I’ve always tossed up going to but want to avoid the tourists. It sounds like your future posts on Bali will capture that kind of experience
