Denpasar Vacations

Denpasar is the capital city of the Indonesian island of Bali, known for its white, sandy beaches.

and families from around the world. If you’d rather trade fair weather for an island all to yourself, visit during Bali’s humid and rainy monsoon season, when you can upgrade to a nicer hotel for a lower price. Keep in mind that Bali is home to a large Hindu population, so religious holidays like Galungan and Nyepi (the Balinese Day of Silence) might impact vacation plans, though it will also give you a glimpse into the island’s rich culture.

This was the most amazing trip I’ve ever had. Stay in Ubud. Check out the Monkey Forest, the coffee plantation, the rice terraces, and art. The food is wonderful. The day spas are so affordable. And the people are so kind.

I love everything about this tiny island. The Indian ocean at the Uluwatu temple was mesmerizing. The food are great and relatively cheap. I'd love to go back!

Bali is exotic and beautiful. The people are friendly and amazing, spiritual and so warm and welcoming. I am a tour escort from Hawaii and take groups there. It’s a long way from the US, but so worth the time it takes to get there. The prices are wonderful, and the food is exceptional. Just go!
