Gay Group Trip: Cultural Bali

10 days£
Group Trip

Although part of Indonesia, Bali has always retained its own unique identity. Located close to the equator, the climate is tropical. Bali’s main religion is Hinduism. There are over 20,000 temples and religious sites on the island. It’s known as the Land of the Gods for a reason.

Bali is a volcanic island surrounded by exquisite white sand beaches. It’s a very popular destination for watersports – the waves of Nusa Lembongan are a dream destination for many surfers.

You’ll visit the so-called floating temple, Ulun Danu, stroll along rice fields, learn how to make Balinese cuisine and taste the finest coffee at the local coffee plantations.
