If you find yourself dreaming about luxury Bali villas, incredible architecture, or stunning landmarks, then it might be time to treat yourself to a holiday. However, given the number of countries ready to offer a unique tourist experience, it can be challenging to decide which country to visit. Rather than close your eyes and point out a random nation on a globe, we’ve included five must-visit countries below. You’re sure to find at least one will pique your curiosity.


Indonesia will prove to be a real eye-opener for any traveller, but if you’ve set your sights on this country, Bali is the ideal hot spot for any tourist. Bali is an Indonesian island with a little bit of everything for those who like variety. You can relax on white sandy beaches, stay in luxury Bali villas, then also enjoy natural attractions such as the coral reefs and volcanic mountains. Then, when the day is done, you can head back to the resorts for unbelievable nightlife.


If experiencing a new culture is on your bucket list, then a trip to Japan is a must. Japan is home to thousands of shrines and temples, cuisine to die for, and plenty of tourist activities in the main centres. While Tokyo and Osaka will appeal to those with a thrill for the hustle and bustle, you can also escape to the outskirts where beautiful gardens and stunning scenery in natural environments await.


There’s something you might not know about Bali – it has a rough rugged side. Nope, were aren’t talking about crime or anything like that. We are talking about the Lucas Oil Ball Off-road challenge that happened earlier this month.

One thing about an off road competition in Bali is that this is probably the only place in the world where romantic and off road can easily be used in the same sentence, not to mention it is also exotic. If this is a sport you participate in at home, if you are ever lucky enough to get invited to the Lucas Oil Bali Off Road event, be sure to take advantage of it and attend.

This year there were 150 vehicles participating in the event, and there are participants from all over the island of Bali. These are extreme racers and light adventure racers – each placed in their own category. The weather can make this even more challenging.


Bali continues to grow in popularity as a vacation destination. This should not be surprising since this wonderful little island, which you can drive around the coastline in just one day, packs a powerful punch when it comes to things to see and do. In fact, we couldn’t possibly even make a dent in the things you can see and do, and experience in Bali, but a recent report listed the following as the top ten things to do while you are in Bali.

Nusa Lembongan – Laid-back Nusa Lembongan is free of cars, noises and hassles. The local population is around 7000, and most live in two small villages, Lembongan and Jungutbatu. It’s a delightful place to visit.

Ubud – Leading up towards the mountains, Ubud is perched on the gentle slopes. Ubud’s focus is on the amazing Balinese culture and this is a great place to come and experience it.

Kuta – This is the most fascinating of destinations. On one hand, this is the famous holiday of fun in the sun. A narrow lane of restaurants and bars are ready to make your vacation memorable. On the other hand you can tuck yourself away in a beautiful villa and enjoy your own private pool, in-house private day spa treatments, luxurious accommodations, and so much more.


It seems the secret is out – marine tourism in Bali continues to grow and thrive, as more and more tourists seek out what Bali has to offer in the form of water sports. Diving, fishing, snorkeling, and numerous other water sports are very popular in a number of Bali destinations whether it’s Seminyak, Legian, Jimbaran, or one of Bali’s other extraordinary beach locations. And of coarse there is always the opportunity to soak up some rays on the beach.

Yos WK Amerta, chairman of the Bali chapter of the Indonesian Marine Tourism Association (Gahawisri) says, “The businesses offer facilities for diving, snorkeling, fishing and various water sports and have seen their market continue to grow.”

Whether you’re a pro at water sports or other marine activities or just want to try something new there are endless opportunities and experiences in Bali. As an added bonus, it’s convenient, affordable, and easy to find a villa in Seminyak, Legian, Jimbaran, or wherever you want to hang out. Your own villa adds an entirely new dimension to your Bali vacation.
