Bali is for seekers – for those seeking serenity, natural beauty, spirituality, revelry or romance. In some ways, it is for those seeking themselves.
Travellers fall in love with Bali’s welcoming vibe, its unmatchable scenery and its relaxed, almost laid-back attitude. Bali needs time; it isn’t one of those places you can explore in a jiffy. To carefully unfold the many interweaved layers of Bali, an extensive trip is highly recommended.
However, a longer trip need not mean a deeper dent in your pocket. Enhance your stay in Bali by booking one of these pretty homestays, which will cost you not more than INR 2,500 per person per night. Rejoice!
