Australians have had an ongoing love affair with Bali and its allure is yet to wear off. This might have something to do with luxury beachfront villas that won’t break the bank, banquets laden with fresh local flavours and vibrant street markets that ring out with hundreds of haggling hawkers.

The island of Bali has long been Indonesia’s star on the tourism scene; its seaside hubs like Kuta and Nusa Dua sharing the spotlight with peaceful inland villages. While the south is primed for sunning and shopping, its verdant interior is rich in tradition and Bali culture. Visit the organic eateries and galleries of Ubud before exploring outlying temples, rice paddies and yoga retreats.
