Since the publication of the novel “Eat Pray Love”, Bali has become Indonesia’s most popular island. But despite the tourism boom, a vibrant Hindu culture with beautiful ceremonies and temples still prevails here. From the crowded surf beaches of Kuta and Sminyak to the unexplored snorkel spots of Nusa Lembongan, this is an island full of contradictions, rich culture, friendly people, wonderful food and exceptional nature.
