Bali, Indonesia sits in between the Java Sea and the Banda Sea in Southeast Asia. The island has become a popular destination for backpackers traveling because of its budget-friendly options but you also have the choice to treat yourself to luxury if that is more of your style. Its popularity went up when Bali was featured in the film “Eat, Pray, Love” with Julia Roberts but Bali proves to be much more than an escape for white women going through mid-life crisis like Hollywood made it seem. This beautiful island is full of rich culture, traditions, kind people, and nature sights. Here are my top four picks for a Bali vacation:
Canggu is the town to head to if you are looking for pristine beaches, surf, yoga, and socializing. It is slowly becoming a resort town but has kept its beach town vibes. Learn how to surf at Batu Mejan Beach a.k.a. “Echo Beach.” When you have a had a great day of surf take a motorbike taxi to “The Practice” (https://www.thepracticebali.com/) where you can practice yoga inside a giant tree house.
