Bali



In October 2003 and May 2004 I was in Bali, Indonesia. At the time Bali was a good travel deal as prices were lower and the locals were on their best behavior after the 2002 bombings, although on our 2011 trip that had changed somewhat. Still, the most trouble you might get in here is self-induced in the nightclubs.

My wife and I left Bali in 2011 slightly saddened. Bali was one of my favorite places, but the press of people is ruining it. Kuta is a nice starting point, but don't stay there the whole time. The beaches were dirtier, the prices have risen, the taxi drivers were greedier, and the streets were jammed with motorcycles and swearing tourists. I really appreciated the highlands of Bali where I could hear birds instead of people for a while. There are still waterfalls and temples worth seeing there. Overall: go in low season.
