Most people who have visited this wondrous island already, don’t need any more convincing that Bali is one of the top destinations worldwide for having an enchanting holiday. The Island is gifted with a distinctive and beautiful culture, a nature like no other and countless of astounding temples and other impressive sightseeings.

The reasons travellers choose Bali according to trip advisor
It’s no secret that Bali’s beaches are great and the temples are wonderful as well, but just that wouldn’t make Bali the top 1 destination in the entire world. Millions of people have reviewed this island in Indonesia and the major reasons for Bali to have become the best destination to ‘go-to’ in Bali are as followed:
Spectacular Sunrises and Sunsets
Whether it is a sunrise or a sunset you want to experience, Bali offers you the most enchanting spots where you can dream away with these spectacular happenings.
The countless beaches on the island of the gods allow for a beautiful sunset or sunrise every day again. Drink a delicious cocktail while watching the sun set in the west on the beautiful beaches of Uluwatu, or wake up early and drink your coffee on Sanur’s beach and experience a lovely sunrise with a view on Bali’s highest mountain, Mt. Agung.
Even though the beaches are a great place to watch the sun set or rise in Bali, it is nothing compared to the sunrise above the clouds, which you will experience on top of Bali’s holy volcanic mountains, such as Batur or Agung.
Unique Rice Terraces
Going on adventures to the greens of Bali is one of the things nature lovers will be eager to do. Inevitably you will come across many rice terraces while exploring the tropical forest of Bali. The island is home to some of the most astonishing rice terraces of the world, and these will make your holiday a memory to never forget. The most beautiful and traditional rice terraces are the ones of Jatiluwih and Tegallalang.
The Balinese-Hindu religion is immensely unique and the dedication to their religion is immeasurable. This might be the things that set Bali apart the most. Bali is called the temple of the gods, as the small island has got thousands of temples and the gods are honoured each and every day.
A breathtaking nature
Tropical forests, rice fields, volcanic mountains, beautiful lakes, astonishing beaches, incredible cliffs and the list goes on and on. Bali’s nature will bring a person to peace and offers an infinite number of astonishing sightseeings and exciting adventures.
World’s best beaches
Each of Bali’s beaches has its own character. You can find beaches that are great for surfing, watching the sunset, enjoying a cocktail or relaxing in a most peaceful and serene way. What do all these beaches have in common? They will all take your breath away, as they are incredibly beautiful. Some consist of black, white or gold sand, but there are also rocky beaches or beaches filled with trees. You can find some of the best beaches in Uluwatu, Amed and Nusa Dua.
Famous Balinese hospitality
