“I dreamt of having this international career, but producers won’t come to Indonesia to look for talent when there is so much available in their own countries. I had to go there. I was curious, and I think it’s good to change. In Indonesia, we don’t have that much information coming in; it comes from just one source. And the Internet wasn’t as big as it is now.”—Anggun, a Notable Indonesian, in an interview with journalist Chuck Taylor from Billboard magazine in 1998.

Me and my husband have been hearing a lot about Bali, Indonesia. They said the beaches are beautiful and exceptional. However, Bali is more than its beaches. The rich cultural heritage of Bali is what really makes it exceptional.
Upon arriving at the airport of Bali, the Ngura Rai International Airport, you can truly feel that Bali is distinct from its neighboring countries. They have this distinct identity from others. Bali is not a modern province of Indonesia and did not sacrifice its cultural heritage for the development.
Basic Facts About Bali, Indonesia:
- Government: Officially the Republic of Indonesia
- Capital: Jakarta
- Currency: Indonesian Rupiah/IDR
- VISA: Free for Filipinos up to 30 days
FAMOUS TOURIST SPOTS IN BALI:
