Welcome to Bali
Known as the “Island of the Gods,” Bali is an Indonesian island known for its temples, iconic rice paddies, beaches, and luxurious resorts. The island is a favorite among lovers for its picturesque views and romantic vibes. The best time to come to Bali is April, May, June, and September, just before and just after high season. Bali is also extremely budget-friendly with 1 Indonesian Rupiah (IDR) equaling $0.0000701616 USD.
Anyone who has visited Bali can tell you one thing – it’s crowded. The busting island is full of visitors pretty much year-round, but fortunately, it is full of accommodations that help you feel hidden from the urban chaos. From luxurious Airbnb rentals hidden among the rice fields to chic resorts steps away from the beach like the Alila Seminyak, you’re sure to find an oasis to call your own.
One reason foodies flock to Bali is to indulge in an Insta-worthy floating brunch moment. Most villa rentals will include the brunch in the stay, but if you want to venture away from your room head to Cabina Bali and have the experience for as little as $14 USD.
You’ve seen those photos of beautiful women on the popular Bali Swing, but it’s not just a photo opp for singles. Couples can get in on the fun too and turn the iconic Tegalalang Rice Terrace into a playground built for two.
