BALI, INDONESIA

Bali -- Ever since “Eat, Pray, Love”, Bali has become more than the ideal hotspot in Indonesia to start a spiritual trip. Stunning views and magical temples full of history,  portrait serenity and cultural significance associated with the Balinese mythology that can take our breath away. A Finding Ferdinand girl is always ready to engage in adventure and Bali balances both culture and entertainment, with such grace that seems almost too good to be true...

UBUD

A place you cannot miss. The heart of Bali -- where all are focused on action, people, and energy. Packed and condensed with the best of Bali: ranging from nature, culture and people, to temples, museums, rice fields and and parks. Ubud is the ideal hotspot to take an interesting bike tour, or engage in more edgy activities such as rafting. And even if you’re not so adventurous, you can relax with yoga and meditation, or visit the spa for some much needed pampering. Ubud has a little bit of everything for everyone to enjoy.

TEQUILA SUNRISE + RED FANTASY 

A very light coral is perfect to create a mimicry with the colorful surroundings waiting for you in the city!  

LOVINA

Lovina is one of the best places in the world to go on a dolphin sighting boat trip. You will leave the beach at dawn to seek out dolphins.  Though it may be quite crowded with other tourists trying to do the same -- especially during peak season -- it is well worth it when you find a school of dolphins happily jumping by.

AYANA

Imagine a large rugged limestone cliff with a temple perched on it.  That glorious sight would be the Uluatu Temple. Another majestic rock formation? Pura Tanah Lot.  Both of these are stunning enclosures to soak on some of the historical culture. But what about fun? We have two temples on a cliff, but can we have a good time there as well?  Yes.  The Ayana bar is perched on yet another cliff at Ayana in Bali. This is known as the best bar in the island, with a long line of people daily trying to get in and have a drink or two.  What makes this location specials is the view, overlooking the sea crashing into the rocks below. Just imagine dancing atop a cliff with the roaring waters creating a spectacular show.  Wouldn’t that be dreamy?
