Bali received the World's Best Island award from TRAVEL + LEISURE magazine in 2010. It's easy to see why: The island has so much to offer! From the moment you arrive, you'll be touched by the warm, smiling Balinese and their relaxed, spiritual way of life. Nature celebrates with an abundance of beauty everywhere: sandy beaches, scenic mountains, stunning rice terraces. Beauty also permeates the culture there with art, dance, music and food. End the trip with a visit to Yogyakarta in Java island to visit Borobodur, an impressive 9th century Buddhist temple.
