Travelling overseas for a holiday is an exciting time. Many places such as Bali are very popular holiday destinations for Australian tourists, because it is fairly close and we love the friendly Indonesian culture. But rather than forgetting all about it once you return home, why not retain the romance of the region by keeping something of it in your home or garden?
Much outdoor furniture reflects the culture of other countries. While you are in Bali take note of all the wonderful furniture – not in the hotels, but in the Bali villas and other similar accommodations that more truly reflect the Bali lifestyle. Then when you get back home you’ll be able to find similar styles or imports from that country for your own home.

There are many things to entertain and amuse you while on holidays and it’s fun to cram in all the activities you can. Many people love to swim and surf, but there are also other things to see and do and it would be a shame to visit another country without seeing at least some of the sights. Before you go on your trip, Google the area to see what it is famous for. Just like Bali is famous for its beaches, luxury villas, beautiful beachside hotels etc. Schedule all those things that interest you into your trip so you don’t miss them.
So what can you do? Here are some tips to make the most of your holidays.
- Visit museums, art galleries, theatres, and wildlife parks/zoos.
- Take a tour to visit natural sites such as waterfalls, cliffs, geysers, rivers and other beauty spots.
- Ride on a tram, a helicopter, an elephant, an emu, a horse and buggy or go in a hot-air balloon. See all the city offers.
- On the beach you can sunbake, but also swim, ride a jet ski or go in a jet boat with others, go on a ferry or boat tour, snorkel to see the fish or coral.
- If you are young, strong and adventurous you may want to try some of those way-out activities such as dune surfing, wind surfing, abseiling, caving or climbing.
- Go shopping, but don’t get ripped off. And remember you have to carry it home or pay freight to have it sent.

In spite of some negative press in years past, Bali remains one of the most popular tourist destinations for many people, not just Australians looking for a great holiday either backpacking or relaxation in a beautiful Bali villa. However, the cheap air fares and accommodation guarantee that it will remain a popular holiday spot for many Aussie tourists. Once you decide to check out Bali you will find so many things to do and see there that you may have to extend your holiday.
The island of Bali itself has many attractions and the culture is a unique one that gives rise to sites of interest such as the many temples. When these are explored you will find them unlike most other temples due to the distinct ecosystem, with monkeys from the nearby jungle in residence at some.
However, the wildlife parks must have a large spot on your holiday agenda because they, too are distinctive. Even though there are many such places in other countries, they are not quite like the Balinese parks. For instance, you can ride on the elephants or camels at the Bali Safari and Marine Park, one of the islands largest parks. There is also an elephant talent show with these elephants being retired working elephants that are extremely tame.

Travelling overseas is a favourite way to have a holiday for many people, young and old alike. Especially people from Australia love Bali and Asian destination for their holidays. However, when you go overseas there can be hidden dangers that can cause illness or injury, or somehow spoil your holiday. Here are some tips to make your overseas holiday safer.
- Take out travel insurance. While it seems like just another way to spend money, it can also save a lot if you should get ill or be injured. You can also insure for loss of clothing and equipment such as phone or tablet, and additional accommodation, should something go wrong with your plans.
- Plan your trip carefully. Make sure your travel agent chooses accommodation that is in the ‘good’ part of any city and works with overseas agencies for tours or tour guides that can be trusted. Besides, comfortable accommodation will make your stay more pleasant.

Bali is often considered the go-to destination for Australians who want to go overseas and have fun, either staying in nice hotels or Easy Villa – or spending time in homestays on a budget. In fact, many may become so entranced at all on offer that they forget all about the budget. After all, if you are going to have a great holiday, why not spend a little more to make it even more fun?
There are so many things to do and see in Bali that you may not know quite where to start. Here are ten tips to help you make the most of your holiday.
- If you are not big on crowds, you will find that Bali has hosts of people because it is such a popular tourist destination. That doesn’t mean you should stay home. You can organise your holiday to take in less popular areas such as the mountains in the central part of Bali or the north and west coasts, where there are fewer people.
- Choose a base to suit your preferred lifestyle. Remember the weather will be hot and humid so getting air-conditioned accommodation is a must if you are not used to that climate. If you don’t like chaotic traffic, then choose accommodation on the outskirts of the city. If you are after fine food restaurants, book accommodation near to them.
