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

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.
