#1. Enjoy being outside in nature in the lush green trees.

Bali is a magical place that offers visitors a diverse landscape of mountains, beaches, gorgeous green rice fields, tropical forests, waterfalls, and volcanoes.

Community and spirituality are integral to the Balinese people. There are over 20,000 temples on the island, and everywhere you turn you’ll spot women making small offerings of bright colored flowers, food, and incense at the temples and villages. Bali’s rich culture, friendly people, and natural beauty are sure to make any visitor want to return again and again.
