If you are looking for a great vacation destination where you can relax and just leave all of your stresses behind, look no further than Bali. Also known as, “The Island of the Gods”, Bali offers divine beauty and out of this world relaxation.

This small Indonesian island is located between Java and Lombok and is home to approximately three million people. While it might be small geographically speaking, Bali is the largest tourist destination and wealthiest region in Indonesia. People come from all over the world to take in the beautiful scenery and culture. Chinese and Indian influences can be seen throughout the culture of Bali. The predominant religion is a form of Hinduism called “Agama-Hindu” and representations of it can be found in the art and music of Bali. While the most widely spoken language of Bali is Balinese, most of the people in Bali speak a few different languages.

Now that you are more familiar with the culture of Bali, it’s time to talk about some areas of interest to visit. If you are interested in the religious history of Bali, you can choose to visit one of the island’s 10,000 temples.  For those looking for a little more fun in the sun, consider visiting one of the gorgeous white sand beaches.  A few must-see beaches you will want to visit are Sanur Beach, Kuta and Nusa Dusa. A few other sites that you will want to include on your to-do list are the Bali Orchid Garden, Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary and the Museum Le Mayeur.

There really isn’t a bad choice of things to do in Bali. The real problem is when you have to return home from your trip!
