It is an amazing island with stunning nature, beautiful beaches and an unique culture.

With these three elements alone you would have thought that this island in Indonesia would be one of the most popular eco destinations in the world. However despite its stunning landscapes and culture its tourism has headed towards a whole different type of tourism.

Due to the booming tourism industry many parts of the island have rapidly transformed from quiet beach villages where the number of Balinese exceeded that of travelers to overcrowded areas with continious traffic jams, westernized restaurants and shops and overrated hotels.

Luckily more and more people are taking pride of Bali's uniqueness and are taking major action to conserve it. And we believe that if more travelers would support or make use of these initiatives other companies would realise that sustainable tourism is the way ahead.

So.....

If you want to leave the crowd behind, enjoy nature and Balinese rural life then you might need to put in a little bit more effort to figure out where to go and what to do. But at the end you will definitely have an unforgettable experience and will return again.

This green guide to Bali will bring you to the nicest beaches on the island, along stunning rice terraces, steep river gorges and numerous waterfalls. Far away from the traffic jams in the south of the island you'll have to chance to stop at numerous villages, watch local farmers plough their fields and see kids running with their self-made kites.

Woman are often busy with placing offerings at their family temple, on the side of the road or at shrines in the middle of rice paddies but they always seem to find time to smile to you.
