At just over 2,000 square miles, Bali is a concentrated island that is easy to explore. Tropical flowers, six volcanoes, and crater lakes contribute to the beautiful landscape, and keep visitors coming back again and again. Eco-tourism is a popular reason to visit Bali, and travelers can go scuba diving to see the native sea life, or head to the top of Kintamani Volcano. White and black sand beaches can both be found on the shoreline, enticing tourists from around the world.
Elephant Safari Park: Get up close and personal with these gentle giants at the Elephant Safari Park. You can learn more about the animals by looking at the museum’s elephant collection, plus see the only Mammoth skeleton in Southeast Asia. Then, watch elephants swimming in the lake or even feed them during meal time. And if you’re brave enough, perch atop an elephant for a ride through the Taro forest. Admission to the park costs $16 for adults and safari rides cost $45; but if you purchase both together, you’ll save 50 percent off the cost of admission.
