Bali - nicknamed the Island of the Gods is approximately 7,550 miles from the Isle of Wight and the journey takes 23 hours. It’s an island with a population of 4,000,000 and most people live in tight village communities with large extended families. The Balinese have strong spiritual roots and despite the large influx of tourists over the years, their culture is still very much alive. They worship a unique blend of Hindu, which is partly made up from Buddhist, Javanese and ancient indigenous beliefs.
Balinese people strongly believe in magic and the power of the spirits and base their beliefs around this. Bali is situated between Java and Lombok and boasts a tropical climate with just two seasons (wet and dry) with an average temperature of 28c.
