Bali is one of the most evocative spots to visit in the entire Indonesian archipelago. A visit here awakens the senses.

The alluring aroma of incense and clove oil lingers in the thick tropical air. As peanuts sizzle at roadside booths and petal-strewn gifts smolder on busy streets, traditional gamelan music jangles against the hustle of mopeds.
