Located 600 mi/965 km east of Jakarta, the island of Bali is among the most popular stops in Indonesia, and it's no wonder why. The island's friendly people, Hindu culture, rhythmic dances, volcanoes, sculptured rice paddies, spectacular beaches, and beautiful jungle and mountain scenery—combined with a wide array of accommodations—make it one of the most fascinating places in the world.
Indonesia's tourism industry is on a rebound fueled in part by strong interest from the Asian and Australian market. Despite past political turmoil, resort traffic is seeing strong business.
Bali Island remains a magical getaway that doesn't seem of this earth, much less part of the troubled country that surrounds it.
