Bali is one of those places everyone should visit at least once. There are bazillions of opportunities to immerse yourself in culture, cuisine and adventure, and, from that point, we want to introduce you to our top reasons to vacation in Bali.

Balinese Food Is Un.Real.

Bali is an Indonesian island, known for its food, art and scenery, and their culture revolves around all of it. So concentrating on the one that makes our mouths water, here's a quick teaser of their food.  One of Indonesia’s favorite dishes (and ours) is Gado-gado, which no joke is one of the best salads you’ll ever have.  Don’t like salads? How about sweets?  Bali has those too—can someone say “Kolak!” And coffee lovers rejoice... Indonesia is one of the coffee capitals of the world. So, let’s just say you won’t go home hungry (or thirsty) after your adventures.

Bali’s Culture: Keyword 'Joyful'

The Balinese people are unapologetically themselves when it comes to their religion of Hinduism.  And because religion is so woven into daily life in Bali, it’s home to some of the most amazing temples and home-based rituals that have their own Balinese twist. Daily offerings, the canang sari, are an important piece of the waking hours and the meaning behind them is beautifully universal. Creating one of these floral offerings is a gratitude of exactly what is, and, a heartfelt wish for peace and abundance in the wider world. Setting aside time and energy each day to honor this tradition is a self-sacrificing, self-loving and community building; a spirit of thankfulness and supreme attention to detail that connects each individual to their faith, culture and country.  Imagine those small moments of quiet and peaceful intention, done each day (as you will while on adventure with us), and you may start to understand how the Balinese are perceived as so joyful and welcoming.

Diversity of Choice

Bali is an island that truly caters to every need, want and whim. Whether you're journeying to rest and reset, adventure high and low or a solid mix of both (our personal preference), Bali is there for you. From a spiritual yoga asana to surfing to a guided bike tour, Bali will help you put your wellness focus first. Of course we prefer the adrenaline/chillaxation mix model and love to immerse each day in a Balinese speciality and disconnect sunrise and sunset by wrapping up with a peaceful namaste. Whether you travel alone or with a crew, it's a wonderful idea to go to Bali with a personal focus while leaving enough wiggle room in your itinerary to allow Bali to work its magic. Our yoga trip in Bali is one of our favorites because of the balance. We will keep you blissfully immersed as we journey around the island but we've built in quiet spaces, joyful offerings, amazing yoga and Balinese hugs galore to healthfully addict you.
