The heart of island

I fell in love with Bali. Kindness of local people, beauty and variety of landscapes, strong and very interesting culture - and all this on such a small piece of land!
If you want to know real Bali you need to go just a little away from the beaten path. If you need on Bali you can find cosy and comfortable hotels almost everywhere. Not only in Kuta or Liegan Beach...
And don't forget to see my Ubud page!

    Tanah lot had a real sense of peacefulness for me too... in fact it was quite a wet day coming back from Lovina but when we reached Tanah lot it stopped and we were able to have a look around.
