Decades have passed, and even centuries, yet Bali still
maintains its identity. Interaction with the rest of the
world only enriches it. The challenge for visitors is to
decide what they desire from the island. If your first stop
in New York City is the Museum of Modern Art, then Ubud
is for you - it remains the core of traditional Bali. If
you must stay at the Waldorf, instruct your driver to take
you to Nusa Dua, where some of the world's most sumptuous
hotels gracefully integrate into the beautiful beaches.
Some of us might prefer wild touristy places, which Kuta
readily offers. Equipped with a Hard Rock Cafe, Kuta has
the cheapest and most extensive range of accomodations,
lines of unique stores that can take you weeks to finish,
the best beaches (Sunset Site Number One - well, all sunsets
in Bali are simply spectacular), and the wildest night life.
