What’s big, green, lush and will leave you tickled pink with pleasure?


Why, Bali, of course. The Island of the Gods is one versatile jewel, whether you seek dancing or romancing, retail or culture, surfing the breaks or hilltop meditation, going solo or with the tots in tow.

Read up on Balinese customs and beliefs to avoid enormous offence. Some ceremonies and sacred places admit women at specific times only. When visiting temples you MUST wear a sarong and sash (available at entrance).
