Bali travel guide

4.1
World heritage site · Spas · Beaches
Island of the Gods
A province of Indonesia, the island of Bali remains one of the world's top tourist destinations thanks to its beaches, diving spots, and resorts. Take a trip to Bali to discover the island's smiling and famously hospitable locals--perhaps the biggest treasure of this tropical paradise. More than just another fun-in-the-sun getaway, Bali also reveals a rich history and varied geography of mountains, rugged coastal areas, sandy beaches, thriving rice terraces, and stark volcanic hillsides that seem transported from another planet. A Bali tour uncovers some of the world's best surfing spots, as well as a deeply spiritual local culture and globally significant archeological attractions.

Lombok travel guide

4.1
Scuba & Snorkeling · Beaches · Shark Diving
An island similar in size to neighboring Bali, Lombok offers a more untouched landscape with a powerful feeling of seclusion, plus oceanic plant and animal life. Balancing backpacker and resort-goer interests, the island blends beach resorts with rugged, volcanic landscapes, offering sunbathing and hiking opportunities aplenty. The region sports prime wave action, which many guests come for. The lowlands region of the island features fields and forests where rice, soybeans, coffee, coconuts, and bananas are cultivated.

Bangka Belitung Islands travel guide

3.8
Beaches · Landmarks · Islands
The province of Bangka Belitung Islands encompasses an archipelago of two large islands (Bangka and Belitung), and hundreds of smaller islets around them. Beach vacations and marine tourism form the mainstay of a typical Bangka Belitung Islands holiday. White sands dotted with granite boulders line the archipelago's shallow shores, coral reefs and shipwrecks teem with fish, and colorful boats bob on the waves as their occupants dive, scuba, snorkel, fish, and sail. The islands display a strong Chinese cultural influence--brought by Chinese laborers in the tin mining industry that has driven the region's economy since the 18th century. This is most evident in the Chinese spices that flavor the seafood-heavy local cuisine, and the dozens of ornately decorated Chinese and Buddhist temples found on the islands.
