With its pristine white sand beaches, turquoise waters marked by colorful coral reefs, magnificent forested volcanic mountains, and sweeping rice paddies, Bali might as well be synonymous to the word “paradise.” This island on the east of Java and west of Lombok has long been a prime destination for holiday-goers looking for both serenity and a bit of adventure. What makes Bali even more fascinating is its strong Hindu roots in Islam-centric Indonesia. The island itself is home to numerous Hindu temples including the cliffside Uluwatu Temple and the imposing Ulun Danu Beratan Temple among many others. If you’re looking for something memorable to do in Bali, try signing up for a yoga class or a meditation session. Want to hang out and make new friends?
