Bali

Bali, island of serenity and sharing

From north to south, the island unveils white sand beaches, bathed by emerald waves that make the game of surfers, volcanic reliefs, equatorial forests. But it is above all its hilly landscapes with bright green rice fields as a backdrop that enchant travelers. A picture-perfect postcard!

The hospitality, the gentleness and the art of living of the Balinese population also contribute to the charm of the island which has kept its Hindu religion in a country with a Muslim majority. Daily life is punctuated by prayer, religious festivals and offerings to the gods. A serene atmosphere emanates from its many temples, the most exceptional of which are those of Tanah Lot and Uluwatu.

Bali Rizières

Hike in the rice fields of Jatiluwih or on Mount Batur

The ancient rice terraces are the most elegant in the country and show a centuries-old respect for the art of rice cultivation. The landscape has been shaped into a breathtaking shade of green as seen from the small road that winds between the terraces, on foot, by bicycle or by car. All you need is a simple air ticket to Bali Denpasar and you'll be there! 

But a stay in Bali is also preparing for adventure. Here, Mount Batur rises to 3,726 meters. It is accessible by hiking for experienced climbers. With a guide and porters, you can set out to climb this incredible peak that houses a caldera with a spectacular view of the sacred lake below.

The beauty of the temples still magnified

Balinese history remains deeply marked by Hindu culture and the temples are the perfect witnesses to this. When booking a flight to Bali, enjoy the abundant temples that the city of the gods has to offer. Capture one of the world's most beautiful settings at Ulun Danu Bratan Temple. Dedicated to the goddess of water, this picturesque sanctuary is the pride of the Balinese. A perfect embodiment of refinement and elegance, it has become one of Bali's key monuments.

Ubud

Ubud, a must stop in the heart of Balinese tradition

Located 2 hours drive from the city of Denpasar, Ubud will seduce you with its multiple facets that will transport you to the heart of Balinese culture. Pass through the monkey forest and get closer to the hundreds of primates that live there under the gaze of the park guards. Adjacent to the monkey forest, the Balinese art market immerses you in the shimmering colours of traditional fabrics, objects and masks that have made the reputation of the island.

Zen attitude in the land of the gods

Massage, exfoliate, pamper, pamper. Bali is the temple of well-being where body and mind are one. It is common to spend several hours reconnecting your body in elegant settings or even on the beach. As you enjoy a massage or yoga session, breathe and relax in complete serenity.

Bali

The cuisine of happiness

Let yourself be immersed in the Balinese culture, and above all in its cuisine! The nasi goreng, fried rice, the mie rebus, steamed noodle cocktail, spiced with vegetables or meat, the authentic sate lilit, chicken or fish skewer, or the famous babi guling, a roasted suckling pig. In Jimbaran, you can taste huge shrimps marinated in lime and garlic, then grilled on coconut husks. A delight!

Candi Dasa

Bali, a prime spot for your family vacation

Bali is also a great destination for a family trip. On the one hand, the various coastal towns of Lovina, Seminyak or Candi Dasa easily lend themselves to the game of idleness and relaxation with the family.
