Bali

Gaze at rice terraces and mountains, explore ancient Hindu temples, meet exotic animals, or simply laze on pristine beaches.

Bali is a country with all-round appeal. Whether you're a young family, lone backpacker, newlyweds, or retired, the sumptuous beauty of this country will lure you in. Prices can suit all pockets too. Famous for its nightlife and beaches, Bali is also a country rich in heritage and diverse wildlife. Explore all assets of this Indonesian island, or focus on one or two.

It's fair to say that many of Bali's first tourists flocked here for the beaches. With warm, untainted waters and immaculate sands to match, beach life remains big here. You'll find ample action on the likes of North Kuta Beach, which has been welcoming surfers and sunbathers since the 1970s. For a more peaceful coastal experience, try nearby Sanur Beach, which offers a markedly more laid back approach. Expert surfers will want to head straight to Uluwatu Beach. This humble sandy cove is home to some of Bali's mightiest waves. Looming above the beach is another example of why Bali is so popular among tourists; Uluwatu Temple. Revel in the history of this religious building that dates back beyond the 11th century, and watch the sun set over the Java Sea.

Bali's temples are a significant attraction. Bathe in koi carp-infested waters at the Gunung Kawi Temple, before retreating to one of its ancient meditation rooms hewn into the rock. The Ulun Danu Temple resides in one of Bali's most spectacular settings. Take a boat out onto Lake Bratan, and witness its misty mountain backdrop.

It's impossible to travel far in Bali without encountering beguiling scenes of nature. Hike around the verdant rice terraces of Tegallalang Village, deemed the prettiest in the country. Cool off in the idyllic waters underneath Gitgit Waterfall. Make exotic feathered friends at the Bali Bird Park, home to the world's largest collection of Indonesian birds. Feed deer, camels and tigers at Bali Zoo. Hitch an elephant-back ride through the jungle at the Bali Elephant Safari Park Lodge. Find more unique accommodation at Saranam Eco-Resort, where you can sleep in a traditional Balinese lodge, way up in the mountains.

Getting around Bali is easy enough if you drive. Car and scooter rentals allow you maximum freedom. Taxis are generally affordable, although less so when heading to and from overly touristy destinations. Temperatures remain pleasantly warm throughout the year. To avoid a saturation of rain, visit between April and October.

Q: Should I book a car while on holiday in Bali?

A: Unless you're really into cars, public transportation is probably the easiest way of moving around the lively streets of Denpasar or Tabanan. With no parking fees (or trips to the gas station) to bother about, you'll be able to check out the sights of the city with ease. If your aim is to bypass town completely and cruise around the region of Denpasar Selatan or elsewhere, renting a vehicle is a fantastic option. Browse through our guide to Cheap Car Hire in Bali, book a set of wheels and go where you want, whenever you want.

Q: Which airports can I fly in to for a holiday to Bali?

A: Your best bet is to fly into Denpasar Airport (DPS-Ngurah Rai Intl.). This a top airport terminal in Bali, operating 3,109 international flights each month.

Q: What are the most popular types of hotels for a holiday to Bali?

A: From fancy options to those with fewer frills, there's plenty of choice. Many visitors base themselves in hotels. Other popular places are villas, guest houses and hotel resorts.

Q: What does a holiday booking with Expedia include?

A: Hotels, flights, cars — and activities and experiences. Expedia has everything you need for the ideal holiday. Choose just one of these options or secure one of our awesome travel packages. You've got the flexibility and freedom to customize your break just the way you like it.

Q: What is the best way to save money on my holiday to Bali?

A: The best way to save money is to bundle your bookings with the help of Expedia. Hotels, Flights and Experiences can all be quickly combined into a neat package — and by doing this, you'll save precious time as well. Keep this in mind before making your booking.

Q: What are the best things to do in Bali?

A: Don't forget to add Serangan Beach and Sindhu Beach Market to your must-do list if you're stopping in Denpasar. Mertasari Inspiration Park is another favourite of travellers and locals alike.

Go somewhere new while you're in Tabanan — make tracks for Pura Ulun Siwi, Blue Bubble Bali and Alas Kedaton.

Or, for some new experiences, find out why Perancak Temple, Jembrana Beach and Baluk Rening Beach are enticing attractions for people holidaying in Negara.
