We should stop our dreaming, as there is a destination where we can find all these: a place between Indonesia and the islands Java, Sumatra and Lombok, Bali is one of the most attractive places in the world.
Bali, is also known as the Island of Gods
Having its capital at Dempasar, Bali is proud of its various landscapes.Although in Bali you can find mountains, and hills, this island is mostly known for its coastline. Around the mountains on the island, there can also be admired some volcanoes that are still active. The most active of all is Mount Batur. It takes only about two or three hours to climb it, as Mount Batur is one of the most accessible and visited volcanoes in Indonesia. Because of its volcanic nature, the sand in the north of the island is normally black; in the south of Bali, which enjoys a less volcanic origin, the sand is white and fine-grained. With all its beautiful landscapes and views, Bali seems to be a piece of heaven. It is the main reason why so many people choose to spend a wonderful holiday in this island from the Pacific Ocean.
