Let's Plan Your Travel to Indonesia
Despite being just one of more than 17,500 islands, in the Indonesian archipelago, around 6,000 of which are inhabited, when it comes to breathtaking beauty, Bali is incomparable. It’s famous for its ancient temples and palaces but it also boasts pristine white sands along its south coast, and black sands in the north and west. Part of the Coral Triangle, home to the planet’s highest diversity of marine species, the coral reefs that surround the island are a magnificent sight that draw divers and snorkelers from around the world.
Bali is also home to wild jungles inhabited by monkeys, active volcanos, misty lakes, and an abundance of waterfalls. It’s a destination for all sorts of travelers, from outdoor adventurers, surfers and hikers to history buffs, nightlife enthusiasts and honeymooners. There are plenty of opportunities for lazy days of sunbathing, indulging in luxury spa treatments or just hanging out sipping cocktails while gazing out at the jaw-dropping scenery, while those inclined to late nights will appreciate the riotous pleasures in Kuta.
The beauty of this island goes much deeper than its outward appearances. There are many traditional cultural traditions still practice today, with the Balinese holding a wide range of celebrations and ceremonies year-round, like the monster parade before Nyepi, the Day of Silence. When it comes to cuisine, from street-side snacks and cheap soup, rice and noodle dishes to gourmet dining, the food is to-die-for, but the thing that may stand out the most is the friendliness of the people, with their smiles contagious.

Where to visit in Indonesia
Our travel experts have collated their top recommendations of where to visit in Indonesia
Once considered mostly a destination for “hippie” travelers to enjoy fresh air, yoga and healthy fare, Ubud is now one of Bali’s top destinations, thanks in part to the book and film “Eat, Pray, Love.” But its appeal hasn’t been spoiled yet, with plenty of tranquil temples, impressive Hindu architecture and green rice terraces to be found along with trendy cafes and vegetarian eateries and boutique shops selling the island’s famous craftsmanship and local artists’ works. There are plenty of museums and cultural performances to enjoy, particularly the unique and stunning traditional Balinese dances.
Situated on the west coast of Bali’s southern region, Seminyak is home to some of Bali’s most famously beautiful beaches and legendary sunsets, catering to travelers seeking a luxury experience with a sophisticated yet laid-back atmosphere. It’s home to many trendy upscale eateries and bars, indulgent spas and nearly endless high-end shopping opportunities, though its stunning smooth stretches of pale sands that stretch for five miles from Tuban to Canggu, remain the biggest draw. If you want to learn to surf, Seminyak beach, with its moderately high waves, is an ideal choice.
Tucked into the mountains in north Bali, among rice fields, clove and coffee plantations, the peaceful village of Munduk has an enchanting, misty ambiance. You’ll see waterfalls cascading off dramatic cliffs by the dozen, and the hiking opportunities are nearly endless. It offers plenty of cultural experiences too, offering a deeper connection to nature and an understanding of Balinese traditions. You might learn how to make Canang Sari (offerings), how to wear traditional Balinese attire or visit a coffee plantation for a tour and tasting of the fresh-roasted brew.
Pemuteran/West Bali National Park
Far from the buzzing south coast, the peaceful coastal village of Pemuteran lies on the border of West Bali National Park as the main gateway to Menjangan Island, considered the best destination for snorkeling and diving in all of Bali. Nestled, between the mountains and the sea, it’s a sleepy town calling outdoor enthusiasts and those who want to enjoy plenty of relaxation. The park itself is home to a spectacular array of fauna and flora, including long-tail macaques, Banteng, a species of wild cattle, deer, wild boar, leopard cats, and 160 bird species.
Sanur is a laid-back beach town on the southeast coast with a more than three-mile-long sandy beach with calm, clear waters and a coral reef. Not as trendy as Seminyak and quieter than Kuta, some would say it’s sleepy but there’s plenty of things to do, including a long list of watersports like swimming, snorkeling, wakeboarding, sea kayaking, parasailing, or kitesurfing. The Pasar Sindhu Night Market is open in the late afternoon and evening, with lots of different market stalls selling fresh fruit and vegetables, traditionally cooked Indonesian dishes, and more.
Lombok is a tropical island paradise, that place to go if you’re looking for tranquility and time to reflect. It’s blessed with an endless number of unspoiled white sandy beaches for enjoying awe-inspiring sunsets, and while there are bars and nightclubs, they’re limited here. The coast is also dotted with coffee, coconut and rice fields, while volcanic Mount Rinjani, the second tallest in Indonesia, soars over it all. Lombok is home to the indigenous Sasak people, with their way of life glimpsed in thatched-roof artisan villages.
Made up of three tiny islands just a short boat ride from Lombok, Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno, and Gili Air have many things in common, including postcard-perfect beaches and crystal-clear blue water with an abundance of exotic marine life, but they each offer something unique of their own. Gili Trawangan is the most developed and the largest, a party island and relaxed getaway. Gili Meno is the smallest, known for its thriving population of sea turtles, while Gili Air is home to the most authentic villages and traditional huts, which sell locally produced crafts.

Things to do in Indonesia
Tegalalang Rice Terraces
Cascading down the winding walls of a lush valley, the stunning Tegalalang Rice Terraces are just a 20-minute drive from Ubud. A UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visiting is one of the top things to do in Bali for enjoying the breathtaking views and capturing selfies with one of the “Love Bali” signs. The scenic hillsides also offer jungle swings and ziplines.
Located in the northern mountains of Bali, the Sekumpul Waterfall is a scenic series of narrow cascades that spill over 262 feet, forming the centerpiece of a lush valley with a bamboo forest. A 40-minute trek will bring you to the foot of the waterfall for an up-close look, and fabulous photographs with the rays of the sun hitting the mist creating a rainbow.
Visit Diamond Beach
One of the most beautiful places in Bali, this hidden beach sits at the bottom of a sheer limestone cliff on the eastern tip of Nusa Penida island. A magnificent stretch of pristine white sands, swaying palms and turquoise sea, the view from the top is a postcard-perfect vision. Easily accessible, a stairway will bring you down to its incredible untouched beauty.
Explore the Gili Islands
The Gili Islands, three tiny islands that lie off the northwest coast of Lombok Island, all provide a tropical island paradise with white sandy beaches with coconut palms while vibrant coral reefs for snorkeling and diving lie just offshore. Gili Air is a perfect blend of the other two, but it’s the only one that provides uninterrupted views of Lombok’s mountainous northern coast.
Watch the Sunrise in Munduk
It’s worth the early wake up call to watch the sunrise while in Munduk. The Twin Lakes Viewpoint is ideal with the golden sun rising right in front of you, moving over the mountains with the sparkling lakes at your right. As Munduk in the north Bali highlands experiencing a wetter climate, the brilliant greenery adds to the dramatic scene.
Visit Monkey Forest in Ubud
The Monkey Forest is a sanctuary home to more than a thousand Balinese long-tailed monkeys that roam freely. Visitors can stroll the paths that meander through lush rainforest with banyan trees and temples, while enjoying close encounters with the animals. It brings lots of great photo-ops as the monkeys leap through the trees and sometimes, right onto the shoulders of passersby.
Kelingking Busa Penida
This hidden beach lies on the southwestern coast of Nusa Penida Island in the village of Bunga Mekar. It can only be accessed by boat, a 45-minute ride from Sanur. The secluded stretch of powdery white sands is framed by towering dramatic cliffs and brilliant cobalt waves as one of the most photogenic spots, often referred to as “heaven on Earth.”
See a Kecak Fire Dance
This incredible traditional dance takes place in a clifftop amphitheater at Uluwatu Temple in Ubud, commanding a spectacular view of the sea. It adapts the famous Ramayana Hindu epic, a story told in the form of dance, playing out against a glorious Balinese sunset. The culmination involves a massive fire display, with no musical instruments used, only the haunting chants of costumed men.
Visit Uluwatu Cliff
The most popular viewpoint and top spot for a sunset in southern Bali, this limestone cliff drops over 229 feet straight down into the ocean. The rocky precipice towers high above a stunning reef break below, while Uluwatu Temple can be seen on the peak of a cliff nearby in the distance. Standing at its edge is an exhilarating and unforgettable experience.
Visit the Water Palace in Karangasem
Made up of impressive historic structures and vast pools that sit against a backdrop of Bali’s eastern shoreline and soaring Mount Agung, the Tamam Ujung Water Palace is a sight to see. It boasts beautiful Balinese and European architecture, evident in the ornate pillars and statues, with the buildings linked by pathways and long, elegant bridges, making it a favorite location for photographers.
