Splendours of Bali

17 days from £3580 per person

Bali has so much more to offer than beautiful beaches and this leisurely itinerary takes you on an incredible journey through what is a rich and diverse island of ancient temples and iconic rice terraces for which the island is so famous. Starting from Ubud, Bali’s cultural and artistic centre, explore the north-east of the island before travelling to the lush Balinese hill station of Munduk which is renowned for its excellent birdwatching. From here travel to Pemuteran on the north-west coast to relax, snorkel clear blue seas and explore Bali Barat National Park.
