When you have your heart set on a particular holiday destination, it can be hard to let go of the dream when you realise you can’t afford it. There are so many great places for a vacation, but sometimes we are just in the mood for a little luxury and a little pampering in our getaway. Some of us are lucky enough to be able to take several breaks a year. But if you put your entire savings pot into one big vacation just once in the whole year, you want that holiday to be extra special.
There are lots of reasons why a part of your big plan may fall apart. The accommodation you wanted may be oversubscribed, or the prices rise too high. You may have to change the date of your departure and not be able to continue with the vacation you wanted. Whatever happens to scupper your plans, there are always alternatives. Of course, if you have already booked and paid, your travel insurance or travel agent will be able to offer you preferable alternatives.
Usually, what we are looking for is to explore a region we haven’t visited much in the past. A lot of people are finding areas of Indonesia particularly popular at the moment. You can visit places in Bali, like some of the resorts in Nusa Dua, and enjoy the gorgeous white sand beaches. These areas have had some bad press due to security threats in the past, but all this looks to be behind them, and these luxurious resorts really are worth a visit. As there are a few places to stay, having to change your accommodation preferences shouldn’t be too much of a problem.
These resorts really do have it all. There are plenty of beautiful beaches, gorgeous weather and fabulous accommodation. Bali itself offers plenty in the way of culture too. Bali is situation to the East of Java and is only separated from the land by the narrow Bali Strait. This beautiful island has had lots of turbulent histories. But it has maintained its natural beauty and provides you with incredible landscapes and lovely architecture. Primarily Hindu, this island has a lovely character and feel, and the people are warm and friendly toward tourists.
If you are a wildlife fan, this island is also home to some of the most stunning birds on Earth. Take a camera and spend a full day looking at all the native species that live here. There are also wild deer and wild boar here, but they are more tricky to find. The coral reef surrounding parts of the island make for a rich marine habitat. This is where you may spot a number of shark varieties, manta rays, turtles, and nearly a thousand species of fish. Needless to say, there is plenty of fish in the Balinese diet, but also pork and chicken. The Balinese like intricate combinations of herbs and spices, and use a paste called basa gade in many of their dishes that is full of flavor and heat. Enjoy all Bali has to offer!
