31 Bali Pictures That Will Make You Want To Visit Indonesia

The readers of TripAdvisor recently named Bali, Indonesia as the greatest destination on Earth. That may be a bit of a stretch, but really, check out some of these Bali pictures!

This island really does fill a niche that few other places in Southeast Asia can compete with. The food is amazing, the people are so friendly, and there’s lots to see and do.

Bali is a place you either love or hate. When I first visited, I wasn’t sure what to think of it. Then I decided I liked it, then I loved it. Today, it’s even where I base myself.

Hopefully these Bali pictures inspire your own travels!
