The island of Bali in Indonesia is one of the jewels of travel in Asia. Unlike most of Indonesia Bali is a Hindu island but also a melting pot of culture from Muslim to western.
For the solo traveller Bali is a superb place to hang out. This is due in part to the many activities that are on offer on the island, they range from surfing, diving, yoga resorts, moutain hiking and spiritual retreats.
There is of course the fine beaches to chill out on too.
Popular places in Bali include Ubud that’s famous for arts, writing and yoga. Kuta, Legian and Seminyak are famous for big surf, great beaches and thumping nightlife. Lovina and North Bali are famous for a more backpacking scene and the East coast is great for diving.
The central mountains are lush with paddy fields and volcanoes that offer challenging climbs and splendid views.
Even if you are travelling solo in Bali you will never feel alone. The island is crowded and millions of tourists and travellers from all over visit the island.
The high season is April thru September and Christmas, New Years.
Bali is not as cheap as it once was but is still affordable by western standards.
