Today, four-fifths of Indonesia's tourists come to Bali, and Bali alone. This is easy to understand, as within this single small island is packed a range of attractions to satisfy every taste. There are smoldering volcanoes, spectacular rice terraces, and white-sand beaches fringed by palms. But it is the Balinese people, with their spectacular devotion to their Hindu gods, that has put Bali firmly on the world map. In an archipelago justly famous for its colorful traditions and ceremonial arts, Bali stands out as being the most artistic, the most spiritual. The Traveler's Bali Companion surveys both the incomparable arts of the Balinese and the life of sun and surf that together make the island one of Asia's prime tourist destinations. There are lavish color photographs that take you to your destination while you are still planning. This guide is set up in an easy-to-use format. The clearly structured entries on where to stay, eat, and how to get there, guide you directly to the things you want to see, allowing you to spend less time with your nose in your guidebook and more time enjoying your destination. (5 3/4 x 8 3/4, 272 pages, color photos, maps)
