The land of ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ is calling with its lush emerald rice terraces and swaying palm branches. You will melt into the kaleidoscope of culture and traditional activities that make this stunning island so unique. There’s nothing like taking long relaxing breaths in the midst of a lush field while stretching out your body in calming and rejuvenating yoga poses, or surrendering to a long massage.

Bali is a great place to clear your mind and reset your thinking before shopping for sustainable, hand-made products like bags made from bamboo, cloth and rattan.
