Where ELSE To Stay In Bali

The stunning island of Bali, Indonesia has always had a reputation for being somewhat of a dream destination. Travelers add this volcanic island to the top of their bucket-lists (sometimes without even knowing where on the planet it exists) & continue to return year after year in the hopes to explore yet another small piece of this paradise!

While the largely populated city of Kuta suffers from a number of typical "big city" problems, there are still many smaller locations on the rise that travelers can visit for stunning scenery, less crowds & much more culture.
