What to Expect from Bali

Whatever your expectations and desires, they all can be more than fulfilled, maybe not in one holiday, but you can get a lot of things ticked on your bucket list. However, Bali is not straight forward. It is diverse, complex and sometimes unpredictable and will fall short on your expectations if you don't know some basic things about the areas and some basic travel guide tips.
The island is a vibrant, dynamic organism which is home to 4mio Indonesians and a few thousand expats living and making a living here. Bali is a "real place", with real people. Although one can find the most luxurious resorts, pristine beaches, best cuisines, and coconut trees on Bali, it is not like the Maldives or Bahamas, where everything is streamlined to the standards of global tourism and where Tourism Managers have invented concepts to provide "predictable surprises" for tourists. In Bali, one can get lost in the variety of things to do.
Bali.com will help you to understand Bali and make it accessible to you. Take some time out to read and inform yourself in order to make the best choices on what to see and do, where to sleep, eat, drink, party, relax, indulge, surf - whatever your plans and budget.
