Break up your journey with a stopover in Bali. With beautiful golden beaches, lush paddy fields and water temples, the Indonesian island is teaming with culture.
Escape the throngs and head to Ubud for colourful markets and temples surrounded by green rice paddy fields. Or for some bustling nightlife head to the beach retreat of Kuta. A popular place to also try a surf lesson or two.
Many travellers opt for a Bali break to experience quiet beach retreats. So if the sun-drenched sands appeal, head to Sanur or Nusa Dua for secluded bays perfect for lounging on. Bali is the ideal tropical escape, and one we thoroughly recommend spending a few days discovering as a stopover en route to Australasia.
