One of the world's most famous resort island, Bali seems like an unlikely choice for those wanting to escape the crowds. However, the mere mention of Bali evokes thoughts of a paradise. It's more than a place; it's a mood, an aspiration, a tropical state of mind. Bali has all the ingredients for a relaxing holiday; chilled-out islands, lush and idyllic landscapes in multiple shades of green, beautiful beaches that span as far as the eye can see, and chance encounters with its culture and people. Dive in its warm and calm waters to view underwater wreckage, marvel at manta rays the size of sedans and be in awe of the distinct beauty of its coral gardens - Bali ranks high on many people's lists as the dream destination for all things immersive, tropical, fun and relaxing.
