We do not Promote! Why?

There are several activities, that are actually quite popular in Bali, which we decided not to list. Here are our reasons.

Animal Welfare Issues

Bali features beautiful world-class animal parks, family parks and attraction parks, incredible nature, beaches, marine life, fascinating temples and, and, and

    On a private tour you can explore the Bali off the beaten track. Botanic gardens, hot spring baths, rice-fields. Join a bicycle or trekking tour, climb the volcano.

    Bali is great fun for kids. The Balinese are very family oriented and moreover extremely kids friendly. Bali offers an unbelievable variety of fun things to do for the children of ll ages. If you are on holidays or a resident looking for activities your children will enjoy, you can be certain there will be something exciting for them.
    In Balinese culture children are seen and treated as little kings and queens and your kids will be welcomed with an open heart and friendly smiles.
    Bali is however still a tropical island in Indonesia which one has to adapt to. How to handle e.g. the hot and humid climate, local food, water, weather and traffic are at times quite alien to new visitors. Bali is generally safe but one needs to know and respect some rules.
