The first time I visited Bali was twelve years ago. I was young, free and single. And I had a blast! This time, I went with hubby and two girls aged six and eight, and I fell in love with the country all over again. Its beauty, diversity, kindness and taste was even better than I remembered. Of course I had a different budget and got to enjoy a higher standard of the hotels, but it was the core values, natural wonders and calm atmosphere that once again captured my attention. I most definitely won’t wait another twelve years before I go back to this amazing Island.
Bali has it all. The beautiful nature. The warm and clean ocean with wonderful creatures. Relaxed and polite people. Fantastic food and a chilled atmosphere. The best time to visit is from May to September, when the dry season kicks inn. Spending hours on the beautiful beaches here is not a problem, but since it is such a small and diverse island, I think it is smart to do some travel and have a few changes of scenery while you are there. Great places to visit are Seminyak, Ubud, some of the smaller islands (like the Gilis or Lembongan) and Uluwatu.
