  • Bali is one of those place that once you visit, you would definitely want to experience living there for a couple of months. I would love to that one day. I can’t wait to take a side trip to Kintamani when I get back! Heard the coffee is great there, too! Thank you for this comprehensive look on Bali, Alice! More power to you and enjoy!

  • This is fantastic, thanks Alice! We’re in Australia permanently now so have started looking at destinations around us that would be cheap enough to get to for our next vacation. Bali is on the list, so this helps us hugely :)

  • Good job on such an informative post. Been thinking of where to go for my birthday this year and Bali is one of the choices. I now know which post to turn to when it comes to accommodation planning. Now the only question is where do I want to stay. Haha

  • Bali has been on my to do list for ever! I usually have a couple of places I want to see but had never looked further into the country to see what else I could do- probably why I’ve yet to book it! This is such ann informative post on the places to visit and the reasons. Thanks x
