Bali, Indonesia lies in the westernmost part of the Lesser Sunda Islands. It is located in the east of Java and west of Lombok, neighbouring a few smaller islands known as Nusa Penida, Nusa Lembongan, and Nusa Ceningan. Approximately 82.5% of the population of Bali subscribes to Balinese Hinduism as their religion while the rest are either Muslims or Christians.
Bali is found in the north of Australia, south of Malaysia, southeast of Singapore, and the southwest of Indonesia. It is home to over 4 million people. Denpasar is the capital city of Bali and the most populous part of the island.
Bali is the country’s main tourist destination. 80% of its economy is dependent on tourism-related businesses. Despite being popular for its sophisticated arts, including traditional and modern dance, music, painting, sculpture, leather, and metalworking, Bali does not have a word for ‘artist’ or ‘art’, making the craft free from anyone’s boxed definition of it. In Bali, everyone is an artist, and each of them aspires to create something as beautiful as possible.
Much has been said about Bali’s captivating beauty, gaining its rightful position as the world’s top destination by TripAdvisor’s Traveler’s Choice Award in March 2017.
“When I follow my heart, I wake up in Bali.”
Aside from its unique vibe, Bali is heaven on earth for its vast landscapes, empty shorelines, and beautiful temples. A good balance between ancient and modern architecture accentuates its uniqueness. The fertile volcanic soil offers a healthy haven for blooming flowers, rich rice terraces, and wide rainforest canopies.
Though recent developments have been made, Bali still attracts many artists and creative types to visit or live there and indulge in its unassuming magic and positive energy. Bali is undeniably a remote paradise, boasting a tapestry of jungle and mist, and enclosed in the sparkling Indian Ocean. No wonder Bali is considered among the most romantic islands in the world and is a top honeymoon destination in Asia.
