Bali island is one of some top tourist destinations in the world. This is recognized by the facts that many people know Bali more than Indonesia, whilst actually Bali is a name of an island that is located in a country name Indonesia. Ask anyone in western country where Indonesia is, most probably they never heard of it, but ask them about Bali, most will surely recognize the name.
There are at least 5 main reasons of why you should visit Bali:
- Nature meets Culture
This is the only place on earth that has a perfect combination of both. Not just Bali is a small tropical island which means it is surrounded by beautiful beaches around the shore, but Bali also offer a unique culture that cannot be found anywhere else on earth! More than 90% of people who live here are Hindu, therefore some of their culture is influenced by Hindu, nevertheless the Hinduism here is totally different than where it came from, India, which makes it unique on its own way! Balinese culture is unique therefore making it attractive for most tourist visiting Bali. Being a small island, the distance between a tropical weather at a beautiful beach to another beautiful mountain area with fresh breeze is only 1 hour! Bali island is small yet offers so much!
- Friendly Locals
It’s difficult to describe Friendly Balinese people in words, you must come here to see it yourself. Balinese people are the type of people who would say hi to anyone they meet on the street although they never meet them before. You can knock anyone’s door in Bali most of them will let you in and will start a friendly conversation, and whatever food they have in the kitchen will be offered to you. Balinese people are very hospitable and enjoy hanging out with anyone. This is what makes many foreigners enjoy being in Bali and some even decided to live in Bali island. From the moment you step into Bali you will notice how friendly people here.
- Affordable Living Cost
You can have a good meal here for like less than a dollar (USD), with drink, for breakfast, lunch or dinner. You can get a decent bedroom with bathroom inside for like USD 100 or less, for a MONTH! Yes, you read right, it’s not a typo, Bali is that cheap, but you can’t expect the same range around the tourist area. Those numbers are only applicable in Denpasar city, where most locals live, which is only like 30 minutes from tourist area. This is just the standard here in Bali, which means they don’t make as much as most people do in western countries, so be generous to tip them well should they serve you well when you are visiting Bali. Don’t worry about getting places in Bali, transportation here is also not so much, affordable and not expensive.
- Tropical Weather
Being a tropical island, the sun is always shinning here. The average climate is around 32-34 degrees Celsius during day time, making it comfortable to do any outdoor activities. Bali has only 2 seasons, wet season (October to April) where sun still shining in between, and dry season (May to September). There are actually more seasons in Bali, like mango season, durian season and many more exotic fruit seasons that you can only find in Bali, making Bali more exciting to explore. You will never get bored staying in Bali.
- Large Selection of Beach
Everyone loves to play on and in water, and you can do all type of water sports in Bali, starting from surfing. You can surf in Bali all year round. When the waves at south side is not so nice, go to north side of Bali, the waves are beautiful there, or go to west side or east side of Bali, all sides of Bali offer good wave to surf. I haven’t even talk about snorkeling or diving, Bali Island has so many beautiful diving spots to be explored. You will be overwhelmed with the number of activities that can be done here in Bali.
