Where do you start when there are over 17,000 islands to explore? Bali is always a good starting point. The ‘Island of the Gods’, a place so beautiful it must be seen to be believed, pictures simply don’t do it justice. Surrounded by glistening, aqua-marine waters, the island is lush and green, characterized by rice terraces of bright emerald green. Luxury resorts and hotels in hotspots such as Seminyak provide the ideal escape.
