Travel in Bali : Go Green or Not Go Green

Bali is one of the most popular destinations in south-east Asia, certainly the second after the tourist hub of Thailand, Phuket.

Bali has developed into a kind of Saint-Tropez of Asia, mixing nice beaches, great restaurants, cafes, nightlife and amazing villas for rent. Everywhere the prices have gone up , especially in the hip districts of Seminyak, Canggu or Umalas... Villas in Umalas, Villas in Seminyak, Villas in Canggu are the most exquisite villas in the world, but aren't always famous for their green credentials ....

So, Bali ... can you still be green ??? Yes, Bali Can ! There are numerous Green destinations in Bali, further North, East and West of the island. See the map below where you can see that the South of Bali only occupies about 5% of the territory ...



One of the most famous green travel options in Bali the West Bali National Park, located far North West. You can reach this National Park by roads from Gilimanuk and Singaraja, or by using ferries from Ketapang, Java. The park covers around 190 square kilometres , 5% of Bali's total land area. And it includes a 1,000-metre long beach, reef and islets.
