There are almost two million hits once you search the words "Bali" and "paradise".  Its popularity in terms of serenity and breathtaking scenery led Bali to be described as the "pearl of Indonesia" and a favorite Australian holiday spot. As per News.com.au, several blogs and reviews have provided different views about the said staycation haven and described it into three angles: The Good, Bad and Ugly sides of Bali.

THE GOOD

Mountains:  According to reports by South China Morning Posts, nature lovers can appreciate the sacred Mount Batur where you can swim at the hot springs on the way down after the early morning climb. Also, the four-hour climb in the highest and holiest volcano, Mount Agung, is a must-try destination where white-water-rafting trip can be experienced with a twist of a jungle in order to uncover the secret waterfalls or even relax on Bali's radiant and abundant rice terraces.

Buildings:  The island has a very far-fetched architecture, especially in Ubud. Even its simple fence is inspired by art work most likely when surrounded by statues of animals, as per News.com.au

Fashion:  Reports says that as known for its traditional outfit, every woman in Bali dresses the same clothing but in different colors and it looks strikingly good.

Beach:  One of the beaches in Bali is Kuta beach where you can surf and take up a lesson on surfing. Then at the end of the day, Balinese sunsets will be enjoyed on the sand while having a cocktail.

THE BAD

The bad side about Bali, Indonesia has been unveiled, based on further reports by News.com.au. Most guests are concerned on its Bali's issue on their security and extra travel fees being charged.

Crimes:  Stealing bags, pickpocketing, mugging mobile-phone and selling drugs are the levels of crime in Bali. They blamed the crime wave for the migrant workers in their neighboring islands.

Departure fee: Paying both an entry fee and a departure fee that cost $41 is too much for travelers. It is not even on the traveler's budget and only local currency is accepted if you are going to pay those.

THE UGLY

Indonesia is considering a law that is to be implemented for banning the production, distribution and consumption of alcohol. The regulation is to set to make the road safer; but may not seem to match with party goers enjoying a Balinese party with just a tea or milk.
