The Island of Bali in Indonesia has long been a Mecca for backpackers. The easy going vibe, idyllic beaches and relaxing spas make it the prefect place to catch some chill time on a trip through Southeast Asia.
As one of the only places in Indonesia that is mainly Hindu, Bali is a place to relax and get back to your spiritual core. Packed with historic buildings, peaceful pagodas and temples awash with the scent of incense you can’t help but fall a little bit in love with the place.
As a hugely popular holiday destination with Aussies, Bali has also got its wild side. If it’s a party you’re after, you’ll find plenty of places to bust a move in your flip flops.
With something that’s sure to please every type of traveller, we’ve decided to give Bali a massive, and well deserved, High Five and count down our top experiences for an epic trip.

Malaysia is the ultimate travel destination. That’s a pretty big statement I know, but I think I’ve got the goods to back it up. Let me explain…
Travel means very different things to different people. For some it’s all about soaking up the sun on a beautiful beach for days on end, for others it’s about integrating in to a new culture and really getting under the skin of a country, some like to test themselves and do things that will take them out of their comfort zone and for others it’s all about indulging, whether that means food, shopping or a bit of pampering. And the list goes on.
The great thing about Malaysia, is that whatever travel means to you, you can find an experience here that will fulfil all your wildest, travel related, dreams. Add to that the great weather, and the fact that it’s super cheap and you’ll see that Malaysia has, quite literally, got it all.
I think Malaysia is one destination that has it all.

It’s a place that will grab you by the shoulders and shake you up, and you’ll love it!
