why do people go to Bali
    #4749603 - 10/03/05 04:14 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

why do people continue to return to Bali. Many a times friends have asked me to holiday in Bali with them every time i have said no. I have no desire to visit and never have. Why would i want to travel so far to see drunk Australian abusing the Indonesian culture. No wonder these bombings are happening - Indonesians are sick and tired of use taking over there country and treating them like slaves.

Sex and drugs and great weather. Same reason to go anywhere.

Bali is easy, they don't venture anywhere else unless if they really want an adventure. What's funny is that the island just 30 km east of it (Lombok) is much more beautiful and really is not that hard to travel around. Bali has just transformed itself into a perfect traveller's destination: cheap, "safe" and exciting. I think the bombings have more to do with the fact that Indonesia is the largest Muslim country in the world, and they know where to hit tourists, even though I believe mostly it was locals who died.

I've been to Bali and it was cool, but a little bit too touristy for my liking. If you go east to Flores, Lombok, The Gili Islands or even Komodo or Borneo you can get a much more beautiful place. Thailand is quickly turning into what Bali has become.

Thailand already had already surpassed what Bali has become...The hidden little paradise where they filmed "the Beach" (Kho Phi Phi) Now has a Starbucks on it... :frown:

Shit, are you serious?  :nonono:

Yeah I heard, it's really too bad. I'm gonna be leaving for another 6 month trip to Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia and Burma on Jan. 5th and I've heard about some great spots in the South of Thailand that have yet to be discovered by tourists, although I'll be visiting Ko Phi Phi, Phuket, Krabi and Ko Phangan because even if they have been swamped by tourists they still are beautiful.

if you are looking for a nice jewel that is still relatively undiscovered...check out Ko Tao. Easily one of my favourite places there.
