I was in Bali last year (June 2006). My perception of Bali was the same as Phuket. Nothing much except girls, pubs and night life. I was all wrong. Bali has so much more to offer than Phuket. Anyway both tour was sponsored by a company as an incentive trip. It was a full package luxury tour as claimed by the tour agent. Since it's a sponsored trip, I need no preparation except bringing along some clothing and a video camera,
Instead of just James Bond Island in Phuket, Bali offers lots of interesting places especially on sight seeing and photography. The above is taken from a Resort & Spa located facing the Rice Field. Very cooling and breath taking atmosphere.
Well, I wish I'll get more sponsor for more holiday trip...Need to work harder next time.
