6. The natural scenery is stunning
You might think of rice fields and lush green expanses when you think of Bali. And you’d be right. But that’s not all that’s on offer in this part of the world. Think waterfalls, volcanoes, breathtakingly rugged coastline and mountains.
Of note are the lush green rice terraces of Jatiluwih in West Bali, which are a UNESCO cultural heritage site. A two hour drive from Kuta, this area was created by local people using no machinery, with a traditional irrigation system in place.
Or, take a visit to the Mount Batur volcano, that’s still very much active. With breathtaking scenery, panoramic views, climbing opportunities and traditional villages dotted about, if you love adventure, you’ll love Mount Batur.
