Bali is a beautiful, but quite touristy island. I have many great memories from my stay, like the sunsets and the amazing cultural and natural sights.

Despite the great sights, I didn't like Bali as much as I had expected: I had too many encounters with aggressive hawkers and the pressure to buy something was often quite annoying.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beautiful nature and amazing cultural heritage
  • Cons:Overdependence on tourism
  • In a nutshell:A somewhat disappointing paradise

    Jó képek! Kár, hogy az összbenyomást lehúzták az árusok - nekem Bali még Indonézia többi része után is nagyon tetszett.
