Bali has several alter-egos, each very satisfying depending on your travel expectations. The long stretch of sand from Seminyak, through Legian to the Southern reaches of Kuta would impress most, yet there’s more at the family-friendly Sanur, and most tourists base themselves in this area. Nightlife is best in Seminyak or Kuta, culture vultures head for the hills to appreciate the arty scene and natural rice-paddy scenery of Ubud, while surfing – Bali’s signature activity – is best at Ulu Watu or Kuta. Offshore islands and the nearby Gili Islands are great for diving. Then there’s the hiking and biking of the interior from Candidasa. Perhaps the best of cultural Bali is seen in the numerous ancient sites, such as the temples (Pura) of Lempuyang, Luhur Ulu Watu and Tana Lot. With its rich tradition of handicrafts, Bali is also a shoppers’ delight.
