Bali: The Millionaire’s Playground
Luxury in Bali isn’t hard to find as it lies in the simplest of things. You’ll find it in a bike ride through a peaceful village or a trek through a rice paddy in the sun. You’ll even find it in the ambience that can be found in the warung across the road serving home cooked Balinese cuisine. To take footsteps upon untrodden ground or to sit upon a beach in complete solitude in a world where commercialisation is on the cards for most popular tourist locations is a rare thing- but then Bali is a rare thing. It’s an island full of surprises and luxury-filled experiences that cost very little or no money at all. That said, if you’ve got some spare cash burning a hole in your pocket, here’s what you can do with it.

It’s futuristic, it’s fast and it’s fun- why not add it to the itinerary?
