If this list hasn’t convinced you to buy your ticket and prepare your hashtags nothing will. There are tons of other locations around Bali for taking pictures.

What are you waiting for? When you are ready for a break you can visit some of the other 1600 Indonesian islands. Pay for the 60 days Visa when you arrive at the airport to see more of the country.

No need to worry about those beforehand. Bali offers an easy Visa on Arrival opportunity. Flights from SE Asia, Australia, and New Zealand are very cheap. The cheapest flights we found originated in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and Singapore.

The Singapore airport itself is an Instagram moment. The airport is the best we have visited anywhere in the world.
