Looking for a reason to plan a trip to beguiling, bountiful Bali? As always, the Smiths are at your service… we dispatched our intrepid Emma Christie to explore the rivers, forests and temples, as well as some heavenly hotels; here’s a handful of her fantastic photos.
Fancy following in her footsteps? Emma’s top tips for seeing the best of Bali include the magnificent temples at Pura Bratan, Tirta Empul and Goa Gajah; exploring the rice paddies at Sideman; and, of course, playing wildlife snapper in the verdant Ubud Monkey Forest. For sleeping, dining, spa-ing and generally having an all-round luxurious time, Emma stayed at the sumptuous Alila Villas Uluwatu, The Shaba hotel and The Purist Villas & Spa.
And if you’re not already packing your bags, have a look at our collection of exclusive hotel offers in Bali…
