Another reason it is so popular with young travellers heading out for their big adventures is how affordable the island is. 'Affordable Luxury' is a perfect way to describe the balance Bali gives.

It's all about the instagram worthy shots! Bali's visually stunning locations, such as iconic rice terraces, dramatic waterfalls, and picturesque temples, make it a dream destination for capturing incredible photographs and sharing them on social media.

My top tip would be hirer a driver/guide for a day at least. I booked the Bali: Full Day Instagram Highlights Tour with Get Your Guide and had a great time spending the day being driven around Bali seeing the highlights! We visited Lempuyang Temple, a jungle swing and Tirta Gangga as just a few of the stops throughout the day.

The main reason I feel travellers head to Bali is the sense of escape it gives. Bali offers a sense of escapism from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The island's serene and laid-back atmosphere, coupled with its natural beauty, allows travelers to unwind, relax, and rejuvenate their mind, body, and soul.

Solo traveling to Bali is an invitation to step outside your comfort zone, embrace new experiences, and embark on a journey of self-exploration.
