Travel Tuesday with Roomorama: BALI

Ooohhh, Bali!!! I’ve been to Bali twice before and I definitely see myself heading back there soon. With direct flights via PAL, it’s much easier to travel to this beautiful Indonesian destination from Manila. Bali offers the perfect mix of culture, surf/adventure, and picturesque kind of travel! Here’s what the folks at Lonely Planet have to say about this mystical destination:
      Bali may be small in size – you can drive around the entire coast in one long day – but its prominence as a destination is huge, and rightfully so. Ask travellers what Bali means to them and you’ll get as many answers as there are flowers on a frangipani tree. Virescent rice terraces, pulse-pounding surf, enchanting temple ceremonies, mesmerising dance performances and ribbons of beaches are just some of the images people cherish.
      Small obviously doesn’t mean limited. The manic whirl of Kuta segues into the luxury of Seminyak. The artistic swirl of Ubud is a counterpoint to misty treks amid the volcanoes. Mellow beach towns like Amed, Lovina and Pemuteran can be found right round the coast and just offshore is the laid-back idyll of Nusa Lembongan.
      As you stumble upon the exquisite little offerings left all over the island that materialise as if by magic, you’ll see that the tiny tapestry of colours and textures is a metaphor for Bali itself.
      And those are just some of the more obvious qualities. A visit to Bali means that you are in the most visitor-friendly island of Indonesia. There are pleasures of the body, whether a massage on the beach or a hedonistic interlude in a sybaritic spa. Shopping that will put ‘extra bag’ at the top of your list. Food and drink ranging from the freshest local cuisine bursting with the flavours of the markets to food from around the globe, often prepared by chefs and served in restaurants that are world class. From a cold Bintang at sunset to an epic night clubbing in Kuta, your social whirl is limited only by your own fortitude.

Images and text from Lonely Planet
Yesterday, my buddy Stella and I were exchanging travel tips via text and she thanked me for recommending Roomorama to her. Apparently, it has become her latest online addiction–in fact, she already booked an apartment in Barcelona for an upcoming trip! I have to admit, even if I don’t have any immediate travel plans–it’s just nice to drop by the site and just type in random destinations to see all their property listings. It’s a great way to start your wander-lusting and it’s also nice to keep these places in mind just in case the opportunity to travel presents itself. If you haven’t encountered Roomorama yet, here’s my previous blog entry about it. So for today, let me show you my favorite Roomorama properties in Bali.
