Bali is an Island Paradise

Bali Indonesia is a very popular travel destination particularly for Australians.

The people of Bali and very friendly, honest and welcoming.  I would rate them as some of the nicest people in the world.

Let me share with you an example of their honesty.  One day I was walking in a main tourist area in Denpasar when my wallet fell out of my back pack as I was removing a cap.  I was not aware that my wallet had fallen to the ground until a young woman who picked it up tapped me on the shoulder and returned it to me.  Naturally I rewarded her for her honesty.  I was truly amazed at her honesty and kindness in returning it to me because it would have been very easy for her to keep it.

If you have never visited Bali then I encourage you to add it to your list of highly desirable holiday destinations.
