Bali Holiday Packages

If you couple beautiful beaches and green vegetation with incredible cultural diversity, you get Bali, a large Indonesian island popular for its achingly beautiful scenery.
Bali is known for its lush green rice paddies, blue water beaches, and for its rich and diverse cultural heritage. Indonesia is a predominantly Muslim country, and most of the Indonesian Hindus have made Bali their home. One of the unique features of Bali is that despite being known as a honeymoon destination by most, Bali gets travellers from all sorts of categories including backpackers, surfing enthusiasts, divers, hippies and spiritual tourists trying to find themselves. It is this popularity that has given a boost to Bali tourism, which has flourished since the eighties. So lets take a deeper look into the amazing island of Bali, how to reach there and what to do there.

Bali is one of the many islands that make up the country of Indonesia. It is located about 3 km east of the island of Java. It has a tropical climate and the best time to visit Bali is around May, June and July. Getting into Bali is easy and not very expensive either. Bali offers visa-on-arrival, but a prior visa can also be booked. Many airlines offer flights to Bali from Kolkata, Mumbai, Chennai and Delhi. You will land at Ngurah Rai International Airport which is about 13 kilometres away from Denpasar, the capital of Bali and the main gateway into the island of Bali. Many travel agencies and travel websites offer economical Bali holiday packages for you to choose from.

Now that you have spent all that money on Bali tour packages and reached Bali, lets dig into the things to do in Bali and the places you can visit to make the most of your Bali holiday. Bali is adorned with beautiful temples. Head to any of them to add to your spiritual self. For a peaceful and meditative session, visit the temples of Saraswati, Tanah Lot, and the Besakih Temple. Temple hopping is a part of many Bali holiday packages. So be sure not to miss it.

To make the most of your Bali holidays, make sure to catch the breathtaking sunrise from atop any of the four volcanic mountains that Bali houses. Its not an easy task as physical fitness is a factor, and since all the volcanoes are active, you must hike in the presence of a local guide. Mount Batur, Mount Agung, Mount Bratan and Mount Merbuk are the 4 volcanic mountains, and all of them offer breathtaking views.

Another obligatory activity is to grab a motorbike and ride yourself to the many rice terraces that adorn Bali. They are so green that you will be seeing green for the rest of the day. Most rice terraces are near the rural areas around Ubud. Tegalalang is the popular one, and we recommend going early in the morning to avoid the crowd and enjoy the lush greenery. The beautiful views will be the high point of your relaxing Bali holidays.

Bali is considered as a surfers paradise, mostly because of the excellent waves which are ideal for surfing. You can even learn to surf in Kutu as there are many surfing schools there and the waves there are suitable for new surfers. Many Bali packages include surfing lessons, so choose wisely.

Bali may have great rice paddies and mountains, but you got to eat before you hike, and what better place than Ubud to indulge in food? Ubud is the spiritual centre of Bali, and here you can find many restaurants that offer excellent healthy food. Gluten-free, raw, vegan, organic, you name it, and its there.

So there we have it. Get your tickets and get going to Bali, a beautifully diverse island. Go with your loved one by opting for Bali honeymoon packages, with your friends, or better still, go on a solo backpacking trip and enjoy the soul cleansing feeling. Bali holiday packages are a rage, and you can easily find ones that suit you. So, pack your bags and get going now!
