Watch colourful passing temple processions, hit the white-sand beaches of the Bukit Peninsula, or look after your body and mind with a massage or yoga class.

Lonely Planet writer Masovaida Morgan explains why she loves Bali & Lombok. "When I first arrived in Bali, my imaginings of a peaceful paradise were thwarted by a more frenetic scene. Instagram has a way of up-selling reality - admittedly, those initial ideas hinged on what I saw while scrolling down my phone screen. I eventually found picture-perfect vistas, but also discovered an interstitial serenity amid the bustle that helped me reconcile Bali's dual identities of tourism-driven hubbub and tranquil utopia. Welcoming dreamers and doers, this land quickens an inherent spirituality within all who visit its shores. Every step (over an offering to the gods) feels like a prayer."
