A trip to Indonesia is deemed incomplete unless you see the top tourist attractions in Bali. Bali is the most visited island in Indonesia and touted to be the “Island of the Gods”. It has been recognized several times in the past as one of the world’s most popular island destinations. There is always something for tourists to do and accommodation at many hotels in Bali is within most people’s budgets, sales whether they are backpackers or luxury travelers.
The sacred volcano is the site of Pura Besakih, the oldest and biggest Hindu Temple in the island. At the entrance is a stone staircase that will take you up to the mountainside where orthodox Hindu temples have been lying still for the past one thousand years.
Popularized by the book Eat, Pray, Love, the town is easy to fall in love with. There you can stay in bungalows, five-star resorts, and everything in between. People usually come here for art and souvenirs but it is also a destination for nature sightseeing and food. The Sacred Monkey Forest is a wonderful place to see monkeys and forest alike though, you have to avoid taking babies, toddlers, food, and shopping bags with you. Bringing anything that a monkey can grab is best avoided.
The shores of Kuta Beach are ideal for surfing, making it one of the top tourist attractions in Bali for surfers. Novice and advanced surfers will enjoy it very much. Affordable surfing rentals are available beachside. Food and drinks are also readily available in beachside stalls at cheap prices.
The sacred Hindu Temple is built on top of a jagged tidal islet. It’s one of the most interesting sights you’ll see in Indonesia. Tanah Lot is a great place to watch the sunset. Nearby is a decent eatery which overlooks the temple.
Tanah Lot also attracts a few surfers. The waves around it are pretty strong. However, this isn’t a place for beginners because of the rocky seascape. That said it’s still one of the top tourist attractions in Bali, Indonesia.
