    22 Reasons Bali Is So Much More Than You Think

    It's more than just a party destination.

    1. Upon landing in Bali you notice that this airport has a view that definitely beats the one that you departed from.

    2. It's not just the airport, the entire island provides stunning sights.

    3. When people think of Bali they instantly call it a party destination. But it's so much more than that. Yes, there is Kuta Beach.

    4. Along with its famous nightlife.

    5. And Waterbom Bali, which is fun but really you can do that anywhere.

    6. What you can't do anywhere is visit the Tanah Lot Temple, which was built on a rock formation looking over the ocean.

    7. Or the Ulun Temple.

    8. It seems the further you get away from the busy tourist spots, the bigger the pay off. Seeing the rice fields of Ubud is well worth the trek.

    9. Because no matter how you look at it...

    10. You'll definitely capture that photo which will get you at least 11 likes on Instagram.

    11. And the Sekumpul Waterfalls will get you at least 20.

    12. What about getting a photo whilst holding a monkey at the Sacred Monkey Forrest Sanctuary? The possibilities for likes are endless.

    13. There's more than just monkeys in Bali. The island also has Night At The Zoo where you can see animals in a completely different light.

    14. And how many people can say they’ve swum through a navy shipwreck?

    15. In any other country, a cup of Balinese coffee is an expensive delicacy. But here you don't need to spend half your pay cheque, plus you get to see the unique way it's made.

    16. All over the island there's markets where you'll find little ornaments to put in your apartment to give it some ~culture~.

    17. Or grab some fresh produce for that #2k15cleanse.

    18. But you're on holidays! So why cook, when the island is covered in amazing restaurants!

    19. At Jimbaran Bay you'll find a beach lined with restaurants and bars offering seafood straight from the ocean.

    20. Or you can just eat lunch overlooking Mount Batur, a live volcano.

    21. And while you're there, why not finally attempt to surf? You've already come this far.

    22. But just remember one thing: Be sure to take a camera. Because in the end what's the point of going on holidays, if you can't brag about it to your friends when you get home?
